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.

MAXINE'S LOW I.Q.

I have no idea if Maxine Waters has a low IQ or not.  But she is one stupid woman.

First, she does shoot her mouth off and say things that prove she doesn't spend a lot of time thinking about it before hand.  Her support of mob action against anyone working for Trump, after spending years speaking against bullying, was a classic example of words coming back to haunt you.

Then, she either got some advice or came up with what she thought was a brilliant move and announced she is receiving death threats and the media ate it up and now she is the victim instead of the problem.

Which is about the stupidest thing she could have done.

I mean first of all, no conservative would shoot Maxine Waters.  Have you seen the price of ammo?  No conservative would waste a 2 buck bullet on Maxine Waters.  But, other than that, Maxine may have guaranteed her death sentence.

This country is sitting on a powder keg.  I read thru a lot of articles today and the statements being made about the border and children.

Rule Number One: When politicians start talking "about the children" you are being bamboozled.  It's been used for years and years now.

But reading the statements that are blatantly false, repeated over and over, just lie after lie and then Maxine saying 'if you shoot me you better shoot straight and not just wound me" and then it hit me like a ton of bricks.

Maxine Waters is going to be assassinated, by the left, blame will be put on the right and set off the powder kegs with a media that will hammer it home.

Hope I'm wrong on this, but, well, we will wait and see.

By the way, I've been pounding the dems lately pretty heavy and snarky, don't think I don't hold the Republican Party in similar disgust.  Well, most of it.

But the left is swinging seriously bad.  I mean they have a new heroine, this Bronx Babe who actually grew up in a very rich area of New York and isn't the babe from the streets she likes to pretend to be, but her positions and the positions being taken now by democrats are so far going left.  It is becoming obvious the dems are for getting rid of the borders completely.

I want you to think for a moment of the utter chaos that will happen is we remove borders and just let anyone come to the USA with no checks, no rules;  it will be utter bloody chaos.

I mean, I honestly want to sit down and ask some of these people, what exactly do you think will happen if you open the borders, give 30 million citizenship and another 30 million more?

See Germany, Spain, Italy, Greece, France, Sweden, and Britain.

Where exactly do all these rich white politicians, business leaders, and Hollywood twits think they are going to be safe?

You know what causes all of this, that people think they can create a utopia on Earth.  People think they can create this perfect world with no racism, no bigotry, no hatred, where everyone gets along.  Time after time, every damn time it's been attempted, it has required millions of people to be imprisoned and put to death.  Ever hear of the Khmer Rouge?  Cambodia?  Do you know who they were?  About two dozen Cambodians who were university students in France, got their advance degrees and came home and decided they could create paradise, it just required killing about 35% of the population before they discovered, oops, this won't work.  Lenin, Stalin, Mao, Castro and don't forget Hitler, though his Utopia wasn't communistic, but the killing remained the same.

The good news is the media, college professors and entertainers were very popular with the death squads.  Poetic justice.

So look for Miss Waters to be taken out, it will be by the left, I'm sure Clinton's could provide the names of several high quality assassins, maybe the guys that did Seth Rich are available, and the powder kegs will go off.

No where to hide.  No where to run.  Time's they are a changin'.

Come writers and critics
 Who prophesize with your pen
 And keep your eyes wide
 The chance won’t come again
 And don’t speak too soon
 For the wheel’s still in spin
 And there’s no tellin’ who that it’s namin’
 For the loser now will be later to win
 For the times they are a-changin’


 The line it is drawn
 The curse it is cast
 The slow one now
 Will later be fast
 As the present now
 Will later be past
 The order is rapidly fadin’
 And the first one now will later be last
 For the times they are a-changin’

IMMIGRATION

First, before I start, would someone please post to the Borg Leftist Collective that NAZI stands for the NATIONAL SOCIALIST PARTY.  Calling conservative republicans Nazi's just shows how unintelligent most of these people are.  Nazi's are socialists, democrats are socialists.  You might as just yell 'You F*&*(^&*G Democrat!'.

So the president spoke on immigration:

All Americans, not only in the States most heavily affected but in every place in this country, are rightly disturbed by the large numbers of illegal aliens entering our country. The jobs they hold might otherwise be held by citizens or legal immigrants. The public service they use impose burdens on our taxpayers. That's why our administration has moved aggressively to secure our borders more by hiring a record number of new border guards, by deporting twice as many criminal aliens as ever before, by cracking down on illegal hiring, by barring welfare benefits to illegal aliens. In the budget I will present to you, we will try to do more to speed the deportation of illegal aliens who are arrested for crimes, to better identify illegal aliens in the workplace as recommended by the commission headed by former Congresswoman Barbara Jordan. We are a nation of immigrants. But we are also a nation of laws. It is wrong and ultimately self-defeating for a nation of immigrants to permit the kind of abuse of our immigration laws we have seen in recent years, and we must do more to stop it.

Boy, do democrats hate talk like that.  They will scream all sorts of things because 1. Democrats are basically historically illiterate and 2. Democrats are morons.

Now, some of my imaginary readers might have stopped and raised an eyebrow.

You see, I said president said this, I didn't say what president.  It was not Trump, but Bill Clinton in his 1995 State of the Union speech.

Notice the position of democrats 23 years ago and compare to today.  Barbara Jordan, black congresswoman.  Compare that to today's Maxine Waters, or Hillary, or insert any democrat here.

Trump, should give this speech nearly word for word except Barbara's name, and when the dems sit on their hands inform them this was Bill Clinton's speech 24 years ago and you cheered it then, now you boo it.

Just something to chew on next time you watch talking heads spew spit on the issue.

A VIEW FROM 50,000 FEET

So, Sarah was denied service at a restaurant for moral reasons while bakers are out of business for not baking gay wedding cakes for moral reasons.  Another member of the Trump Group was semi attacked outside a restaurant or movie or something and now her home is surrounded.  The AG of Florida was harassed leaving the movie theater.

Now Maxine Waters is demanding more of this, attacks and harassment of Trump Group members.  Right before her speech to school children against bullying.

And the media is going right along with it.  Wikileaks, whom I normally support, has published a list of ICE agents and their addresses.

And so it goes and then someone is going to be killed.

Of course, Maxine, the media and others will deny any culpability in the person or family being slaughtered, but this is where it is leading.

I really do not understand the current 'liberal' mind.  I'm not sure which of those words should be adjusted, liberals of the past have no connection to the current cult but then using the word mind is also taking liberty with the language.

The unconscious lack of understanding of the cognitive dissonance of positions taken; bullying is bad, then you support and demand more of it against Trump team members.  Moral reason for denial of service is either an abomination that will not be tolerated or it's a strong brave moral stance.  This would blow my brain up trying to reconcile my thinking.  I mean you literally have to suspend logic and rational thought to be a modern progressive.

The idea we no longer need any borders and not understanding the simplest ramifications of  10 million people from around the world suddenly flooding the USA will bring the country crashing down.

Which brings up another idea.  Is this all planned?  This attempt to open the borders so 10 million people from Mexico to Chile immigrate to the USA?

Think of it this way, say you know that some major event will occur that will destroy America, Yellowstone blowing it's top, Madrid, California falls into the ocean, massive title wave on east coast, all the above and make the USA uninhabitable.  What would you do if you ran the Illuminate or whatever it's called?

Well, first you would want to buy large parts of land in South America, NZ, Australia and Africa.  Then, understanding that all the wealthy elite can't just move to Brazil and be welcome, you need to clear out the population drastically and if you suddenly open the USA and Canada and Britain and France and Germany you get tens of millions of people exiting their homeland to come to the USA and then when SHTF all the powerful and wealthy move to the emptied countries and start building it all over into the new country.  Have to flesh that out some more.  Where was I.......

Here is the thing, when does the snap back happen?  Because eventually, that silent majority, is going to say enough is enough and snap.  When crime becomes more rampant across the country, armed neighborhood watch will closely follow and pity the black/mideastern/hispanic person driving thru the wrong neighborhood at the wrong time.

And God have mercy on us if the currency/market collapses and we have massive unemployment while this is happening, which it obviously will occur.

Is that a goal?  Sucker the good ol' boys, the conservatives, to rise up to be shut down and radical gun confiscation takes place, as 10 million illegals flood the country.

Or do they think people will just go along with this.

This is all coming to a head, something big is about to happen, and then like dominoes falling it will get carried away and nobody will be able to stop it.



HISTORY CATCHES UP WITH US ALL

On a Sunday morning sidewalk, 
I'm wishing, Lord, that I was stoned. 
'Cause there's something in a Sunday 
That makes a body feel alone. 
And there's nothing short a' dying 
That's half as lonesome as the sound 
Of the sleeping city sidewalk 
And Sunday morning coming down. 


A truism for your Sunday morning, death never gets easier, you just learn to live with it and when the memories come up past the firewall in your brain, there is guilt you haven't thought of the deceased in a while.  Or as the song goes, memories fade but the scars still linger.

In the park I saw a daddy 
With a laughing little girl that he was swinging. 
And I stopped beside a Sunday school 
And listened to the songs they were singing. 
Then I headed down the street, 
And somewhere far away a lonely bell was ringing, 
And it echoed through the canyon 
Like the disappearing dreams of yesterday.  


Today is the ten year anniversary of the passing of my mom.  I don't talk about her as much as I did my dad, heck, my dad got himself a blog and book that no one reads, and sometimes I think mom was training for taking care of dad but that regulates her to a back seat she doesn't deserve.

There was something about the generation that grew up during a depression, there is a toughness to them.  She was 12 or 13 when the '29 market crash that started the depression.  Okay, I know some argue that this was recoverable and the depression started blah blah blah, focus on the intent here okay?  So where little 12 year olds today are dealing with is her iPhone cool enough, I didn't know you could do this with a cucumber in her sexual education class, and whatever else goes on in the mind of a 12 year old.  But surviving isn't part of it for most.
Then again, maybe for millions today it is, what do I know, don't have kids and truth be told, don't even like 'em much.

But back in the 1930's, that was pretty much all anyone thought of most of that decade, surviving.  My mom was smart, she knew Latin, had a bunch of poems memorized that she could recite for life, all from a high school education.  She did the Chicago Tribune crossword puzzle every day.

Funny, I graduated college and didn't know a second language nor recall ever having read a poem let alone memorized one.  And if I can fill in three clues in a crossword puzzle it's a bloody miracle.  Anyhow, she didn't go to college, she worked, mostly as a legal secretary for a couple of lawyers in Morgantown WV.  Frankly, for those days, she was approaching old maid territory when she robbed the cradle and married my dad eight years her junior.  I loved teasing her about that.

I really didn't like my mom for a period of time.  About 2 weeks before I was to leave for college she told me I had to have the dog put down.  Now, in fairness, Jock was old, couldn't go up or down steps, had trouble with controlling his bowels and was partially blind.  But I did not appreciate putting Jock down and held it against her for years.

But one day I realized something.  Jock was on his last legs and was probably not going to make the end of the year and rather than calling me while I was in school to tell me my dog I'd had since I was 2 was dead she made me deal with it, have my two weeks to mourn, and then it was off to college and would be forgotten with all the new things in life.

It always amazed me how smart my parents starting getting as I got older.  It is also very strange as I just realized my mom was just like Jock in her old age; she couldn't get up and down or use stairs, had little or no control of her bowels, and was partially blind with macular degeneration.  Huh.  Never saw that before.

And I put them both down.  Yea, this is going to be a fun day.

To this day I do not know if my mom understood what Hospice was, I obviously did not, and what she would have chosen had she known.  She'd been bedridden nearly 80% of the last 6 years, compression fractures littered her spine from her neck to the tailbone, no bladder control, no bowel control and in pain from it all that nothing would dull.  And we thought hospice would help with that, never realized Hospice is Swedish for euthanasia.  And by the time I figured it out, it was too late, she was unconscious and organs were starting to shut down so if I'd stopped the morphine and took her out of Hospice she'd go the the hospital and then I'd have to tell them she doesn't want life support here is the paper work and they would give her morphine till she died.  But she always said when they bought that house, it was the last time she was moving and she was wanting to die in that house.  So, I kept her home, gave her the morphine, and on Tuesday June 24th she died and had her wish fulfilled.

Some choice,  huh.  Dipshit me didn't realize what was happening.  I wonder if that is why today I tear everything apart, don't believe what anyone says without pulling, pushing, prodding, what are the unintended consequences, what is being said on Alex Jones, what is being said on Mother Jones.  Draw out decision trees as far as the eye can see.  Nah, well, maybe.

Somehow, I don't see any way to avoid introspection today.

On a Sunday morning sidewalk, 
I'm wishing, Lord, that I was stoned. 
'Cause there's something in a Sunday 
That makes a body feel alone. 
And there's nothing short a' dying 
That's half as lonesome as the sound 
Of the sleeping city sidewalk 
And Sunday morning coming down.

ARE SCHRÖDINGER'S CAT AND PAVLOV'S DOG SOUL MATES? BFF's?

What if Schrodinger had a dog and Pavlov owned a cat?  Would the world be different today?

Timing in life is everything.  What kid in the 1950's and 1960's didn't grow up playing spaceman, dreaming one day of flying the cosmos with a cool ship that shoots lasers and battles aliens in some far off galaxy.

Trump announced the forming of a new branch of the military, Space Force.  Tell me, admit it, you said that in a deep voice didn't you, SPACE FORCE.  I mean this is the thing dreams are made of.  It's seriously so cool.

But stop and consider it for a moment, why?  Why are we setting up a new branch of the military designed for space.  It's a head scratcher.

So some restaurant owner was at home, gets a call from her staff, Sarah Huckabee and another 8 people just came into the restaurant and they wanted to know what to do.  Owner comes to restaurant, verifies it's them and asks them to leave on "moral grounds".

Strange isn't it, a guy doesn't want to bake a wedding cake for a gay couple and he's dragged thru the mud and courts till bankrupt and the progressive marxists of our world go bananas, you cannot deny service for moral reasons.

But a member of the Trump administration goes to a restaurant WITH A PARTY OF 8,  and it's okay to refuse service on moral grounds.  It's brave, courageous!

Lot of former bakers around America must be scratching their heads today.

But I"m thinking seriously, you see a member of the Trump admin and get 'triggered'?  What a bunch of wimps.  You get a party of nine walking in and that is a lot of money, especially a small restaurant in a small town.  They lost a 40 dollar tip with dinner and drinks for sure, 20 bucks or more if no booze involved.

I mean, this ain't a tightwad liberal like Obama or Clinton stiffing a waitress sort of moment.  Triggered.  On moral grounds.

Now, understand, there are two things, no baker ever refused service to gays;  it was doing a wedding cake.  And I fully support the woman doing what she did to Huckabee just as I support the bakers who refuse to bake cakes.

What I can't comprehend is how progressive marxists don't see any similarity here and have no problems with the restaurant owner doing what she did but will scream bloody murder and bring out their little books of adjectives to use every adjective in the book in destroying a baker.

Still on the rabid skunk media outrage over separation of children from adults at border.  Zero Hedge had this in a story:

ACLU Obtains Documents Showing Widespread Abuse Of Child Immigrants In US Custody

Documents obtained by the American Civil Liberties Union featured in a new report released today show the pervasive abuse and neglect of unaccompanied immigrant children detained by U.S. Customs and Border Protection. The report was produced in conjunction with the International Human Rights Clinic at the University of Chicago Law School.

“These documents provide a glimpse into a federal immigration enforcement system marked by brutality and lawlessness,” said Mitra Ebadolahi, ACLU Border Litigation Project staff attorney. “All human beings deserve to be treated with dignity and respect regardless of their immigration status — and children, in particular, deserve special protection. The misconduct demonstrated in these records is breathtaking, as is the government’s complete failure to hold officials who abuse their power accountable. The abuse that takes place by government officials is reprehensible and un-American.”

Why no wonder the rapid skunk media is outraged!  No wonder liberals are marching in the streets demanding whatever it is liberals demand.  Oh, by the way:

The report is based on over 30,000 pages of documents dated between 2009 and 2014.

Yea, report and data are from the Obama years.

I still think there is a pedophilia elite thing going on here, but you have to ask the question why now.  What made this across the board on every news outlet the rabid skunk story now.

First question is what else is happening they don't want us to pay attention to?  Pay attention over here, do not look behind the curtain....

Well, the inspector general report came out the very same day this started, a week ago Friday, and last week he gave testimony which pretty much destroyed the integrity of the FBI and several other three letter agencies.  You need to read it to really understand how in the pocket the upper areas of government were to get Hillary elected and destroy Trump.

And why this doesn't bother people more is beyond me.

Had another thought today, lead based paint.  If we'd never banned lead based paints, would an EMP have such a damaging effect?  What about wifi or cellular signals and data transmission.  If I were paranoid I'd almost think the whole lead based paint scare was designed to get rid of it so our walls and ceiling couldn't block signals, radiation, etc.

BREAKING STORY READ NO WHERE ELSE....

I like to tell people I read Alex Jones and Mother Jones.  The reason is to say I read both sides and everything in between.  And then, I like to think.  Connect dots.  What fits, what doesn't fit and why.  Do that Bowie thing and put all the phrases on notecards and throw them around the floor and put together a song.

So this week's media going ape poop is that we are taking the children from the parents who come over the border illegally, separating them.  Well, some are the parents of the kids.  Apparently there are lots of cases where the adult and the kids are not even related, they just think it will be easier to get through by saying mom or dad and kids.  Trump mentioned that.  Some stories have us putting the kids in dog kennels or cages.  All the kids are crying.  There is one picture gong around showing this little kid holding onto the fence that makes his cage and crying.  One person posted it and a gazillion others pass it around.

Only problem is that picture is from a protest in Dallas and the protesters built the cage and put the kid in the cage as a protest.  Even snores or scopes or whatever that liberal fact checking site is admits this is where the picture came from.

Here is an idea, Trump should claim this is all performance art. Then Hollywood elites and NY Snobs would stand around shouting 'brilliant, brilliant!"

Did you catch another story last week?  About the feds and locals busting like 2500 people in a child sex/porn ring?  Apparently wasn't front page news anywhere, I wonder why.  More on this later.

But other news agency, those supposedly fake news sites, got video of some of these places and show bedrooms with 2 bunk beds, classrooms where kids take schooling, soccer games and paints a different picture.  One woman who worked there described what she does and said they are not allow to touch or hold the children which breaks her heart sometimes.

Now, first thing to know is separating children from parents is not new, the Obama Administration did it also, for years, but quickly they were released.  That is usually left out of MSNBCBSBABCXYZ.

Second thing to know is that there have been more federal busts of child porn stuff in Trump's first 17 months than in all of Obama's 8 years.  Trump despises child porn, child sex, etc.  See, I like the guy.

Now put this all together.

Hundreds of thousands of children being moved across the border, many with adults who are not the parents, they get release and do you think maybe, just maybe some of them are being used in the child sex industry?  And what Trump is doing is shutting down the supply chain to these elitist perverts.  Why else would there be a rule in the camps not to touch the kids?  And we know Trump is on a war against child porn and child sex.

Look, at this point do you really still believe what you hear from Washington, state capitals and news talk shows?  Rumors for years of an underground kiddie sex mill amongst the elite.  Sally Quinn admits she's this Washington Witch of some sort.  Pizzagate, was that really all BS or just the wrong restaurant?  Former GOP Speaker Hassert from Illinois (is there any former ILL politician NOT in prison somewhere), do you really think he gave up his love of young boys when he quit teaching and became a congressman?  Look at the kiddie sex racket in Hollywood and who do Hollywood power players hang with, Washington DC power players.  Who is screaming the loudest at the situation, Hollywood and Washington.  We know Clinton road Lolita Express with Epstein over 2 dozen times and that is known to have kids and young teens available for enjoyment.  You see where all of this is going?

Why would Trump be making a big deal out of this now, while a bill is debated and six months to the mid terms?

I don't know, I just put all these facts in a pile and start sorting and moving them around and connecting them and suddenly, today, it all made sense.  This is about trafficking children and putting an end to the supply chain and seriously pissing off the most perverted power players of this country.  It is the only explanation that fits the comment about no touching, that so many are not with their actual parents but tagged with adult strangers who say they are the parent, it just fits.

Puts all of this in a different light, no?

So I called an imaginary anonymous source of mine in the White House to confirm what I thought is going on.  She said, "man, are you smart".  So there you go.  And by the way if I get murdered or suicided, this will be the blog that did it.  Unless it was Robert De Niro or David Hogg for previous blogs.

THE LIBERAL EXPRESS CARD






"Hi, you may not remember me, but I was one of the hottest actors of the 1970's.  Taxi Driver, The Deer Hunter, and The Godfather II.  But for the past 40 years, I have not made a great movie, just been phoning it in, a regular Hollywood Has Been.

That is why I carry this, the Liberal Express Card.  With the Liberal Express Card, I can get onto any MSM news talk show; be quoted by members of the media; be considered an expert in economics, foreign policy, morality, and immigration; get invited to all the great parties with bribed FBI agents; and even dinner at the White House when genius liberals are in office.  With the Liberal Express Card, I can act like I'm still hot stuff.

The Liberal Express Card, don't leave one of your mansions without it."

BRAIN FREEZE


Did you ever see or hear something and it caused you to think of so many smart ass retorts that your brain could not process them into any order or keep up with the retorts and your brain just freezes and then explodes?

No?  Oh, happens to me fairly often, like the following photo in front of an article on Zero Hedge, seriously, no one at ZH caught this?


Even after an hour, I want to type something smart ass and so much rushes forward, ouch it hurts.

You are on your own, my imaginary readers, to fill in the punch line.

Going back to bed with ice on my head.

ODDS, ENDS, AND THE ETHER OF THINGS

Time will tell.

Time will tell whether the agreement with NK will pan out.  Will NK dump their nuke program and allow hotels and resorts and hiking and all those sorts of things?  Will NK become the next hotbed of manufacturing?  Time will tell.

But all I can say is if it does work out, Trump accomplished something no president in my lifetime was able to do, and that is from DDE, JFK, LBJ, Nixon, Ford, Carter, Reagan, Bush, Clinton, Cheney - er I mean Bush Jr, Obama and Trump did what none of them could do.

Time will tell.  Speaking of time, still reading the IG report.  I don't care how liberals will spin all this, it is blatantly obvious, many in the FBI were working hand in hand with Obama and the Clintons to get Hillary elected.  Ask yourself this: what is more important to you, the possibility Russia tried to influence the election or the fact that the US Government legal arm was working to influence the election against the party not in power?  Seriously, you have to think about that?

Perhaps it's time besides presidents we vote for cabinet positions also and let the people put in our choices for running the Justice Department, Commerce, etc.  Because once the legal arm of the federal government becomes political, working on cases, bringing to court, people that disagree with their political positions and letting people whom agree with their political positions get a free ride, we are toast.

Like the one email that said the Clinton IT person was "lying thru his teeth, but nothing will be done".

What happened to us?  We have thousands of unsolved murders in any county in any state and cops are busting kids for lemonade stands?  For cooking for the poor?  Go to the bank and take out 9k for a used car and if you get pulled over and the cops find the 9k on you, they can take it and make you hire a lawyer and spend 3 years to try and get your money back.

Every time Washington declares a war on drugs or war on terror, read you are about to lose more rights from the constitution.  Do we have any left?

Does Vegas take bets on which will be the last right left?  I'd bet press, because they have been bought off.

By the way, turns out the government doesn't just buy members of the media, seems many in the FBI were getting lots of freebies from members of the press, tickets to Redskins games, social get togethers, concerts, etc.

Joe Schmoe offers an FBI agent 5 bucks to look the other way and goes to prison for 5 years.  Member of the press gives front row tickets to the Stanley Cup to an FBI agent and that's okay.

We have millions of illegal aliens who entered this country over the last 10 years that are gang members of gangs like MS 13 that are taking over Long Island one town at a time.  We let millions of unknown middle eastern men into the country and who is going to have the balls to stand up and blame Obama one day where there are hundreds of attacks across this nation on the same day.

If you answered the main stream media, thanks for that laugh.

Tough week coming up, this is the 10 day period when my dad passed, my mom passed, my favorite dog passed, and an old friend passed.  I hate the end of June.  Every year it gets here and I wonder who is going to die this year.  I turn my ringer on my phone off.

Speaking of ringer, found a very cool one, it's the sound of an old Hayes 2400 baud modem attempting to make a connection.  Remember that sound?  Come on, sure you do, it's not like any of my imaginary readers are too young to remember those.

Five years since my dad died and that trial/ordeal ended.  As I suspected, it hasn't gotten better over time.  I feel guilty sometimes I don't think of my mom more, it wasn't easy taking care of her either, and while it happened I thought it was tough and intense, but I really didn't know what intense was yet.

But keeping my spirits up listening to The Monkees.  In fact, watched some of the old TV shows on googletube today.  Man,  those shows were stupid, yet it still brings such a smile to my face.  Hard to be depressed after singing along with Davey, Mike, Peter and Mickey.  Probably saved me thousands of dollars in therapy costs just by listening to The Monkees.

But by the fourth show your brain does start to explode they are so corny.  Saw someone comment on one of them how offended they are by the racial stereotypes of Mexican bandits.  Jeepers, get a life.

Maybe when we 'build the wall' we should put up speakers and play The Monkees over and over and drive illegals back to whence they came.  Okay, that is probably not a winner, though there are lots of cases where store owners put out speakers and would play classical music to keep kids from hanging out, so who knows.

Cheers.

F#*K TRUMP? F*#K HOLLYWOOD

Robert De Niro apparently got in front of a mic without a script again and all he could come up with was F*$K Trump.  You could train an ape to have a larger vocabulary.  Actors are kind of like athletes, one or two good seasons and you can milk it for an entire lifetime.  I mean when was the last time De Niro 'acted' in a movie other than playing the carefully laid out image public relations experts have carved for this guy?  Godfather II?  Taxi Driver?  Deer Hunter?

Everything after that is just De Niro playing his PR image.  And it's so cute, I love these brainless morons our country produces in greater and greater numbers; people who think it's just so funny, so cutting edge, so deep, to get in front of a mic and say F*$K or P****Y or now the C word itself.  So Lenny Bruce.

I am sorry, but cussing is rarely funny.  Back in the 80's, Eddie Murphy did some comedy special on cable and I like Eddie Murphy, but 5 minutes into it all I could do was count the number of times he said F or D or MF and by the end of the hour he'd pretty much blown thru over 3 dozen times on each word.  It wasn't funny.

Now you have some chick who called Trump's daughter a C***T and will she lose her job?  Nope, a week of bad press and back to normal.  But what would happen if you called a gay man a F*G?  Think that would go away in a week?  Depends how liberal you are.

Job security in the 21st century: the more liberal you are, the more secure your job is.  That is terrifying.

Once upon a time, not so long ago, we had decency laws and people understood them and Hollywood did quite well, then the rules started to slide and now liberals have complete carte blanche to call anyone a P or C or DH, use the F, MF words and it's okay, it's artistic expression.  Even good for KKK liberal Robert Byrd got on Fox News one morning just slinging the N word around and it was okay.

Hell, even that stupid chick that calls herself a comedian who's only claim to fame has been swearing on the NYE shows and held up a decapitated head of Trump is now back

But you know something, those people who voted for Trump?  Those union workers in the midwest, the middle class, the farmers in the middle; they view De Niro as a classless jerk.  Not cool, classless. An ass who's mom should have washed his mouth out with soap more often.

Maybe what this country really needs is another recession or depression.  No, I'm not agreeing with Bill Maher speaking of another classless bloke, who wants a recession to make sure Trump is not re elected.  What Bill wants is YOU to LOSE YOUR JOB, your home, your car so you will vote for a democratic in 2020.

What this country really needs is a depression in Hollywood.  What really needs to happen is everyone from the Appalachians to the Sierras to stop watching movies, don't go to the movie theaters, don't subscribe to Netflix or Amazon and just quit paying these spoiled brats and put the lot of them out of work.  Let them lose their homes, their cars, their livelihoods.  Yes, I know, bikini waxers, spray tanners, trainers, hair stylists - and that is just for De Niro - will lose their jobs along with the actors and actresses and we will appreciate your sacrifice.  But let's put Bill Maher and De Niro on the food lines, let them understand what it feels like to be passed by, your home, savings, and everything gone and let's see how liberal you are then with other peoples suffering.

Robert, when you have lost it all, when it's all gone and you are at the bottom of the abyss, that is the time to say F**K.

And thinking of Hollywood, remember, once upon a time, not too long ago, Hollywood oozed class.  Bob Hope, Cary Grant, Jimmy Stewart, Hepburns, Myrna Loy, Grace Kelly: they just epitomized what classy was in public.  Hope or Marx, Groucho - not Karl, could get a laugh every 5 seconds and never once utter the F word.

Now you look at the typical Hollywood star and are pretty sure if you want to find classy, you'd have a better chance of finding it at some homeless shelter in any US city than you would at any awards show for TV, Music, Movies or Plays.

Or bus station for that matter.

I'd suggest drug rehab but those are usually full of actors and actresses, no class there.

But hey, maybe I'm being unfair to De Niro and read this totally wrong.  Maybe De Niro is actually expressing suppressed sexual desires towards the president and felt that if there ever could be a place to safely come out of the closet, it would be the Tony Awards.

See, that was funny.  No swear words needed, just a little cleverness.

The trouble with buying movies on iTunes is I can't take my Deer Hunter and break it and put it into the trash and feel better, best I can do is hide it where Apple allows you to hide purchases you wish you'd never had purchased, or those secret things you don't want anyone to know you bought, like Air Supply songs or the complete Gilligan's Island series.

Or what De Niro calls "F#*K Gilligan!"

But just don't get that satisfaction of breaking the DVD or yanking the tape out of the video box and smashing it to smithereens.

Funny thing about class, where do you find it now?  Do people still dress in tuxedoes to attend a broadway play?  I remember taking my folks to see Phantom in 1998 and my dad and I wore suits, mom was dressed, niece was in a dress and 500 other people were in shorts and jeans.  Nobody dresses anymore.  Causal Friday, like many other things, just grew out of control and now have turned Broadway plays, Sunday services, and the work place into one step beyond cleaning the garage.

But, then, clothes are not what defines class.  So how do you define it?  Is it like good art, you know it when you see it?  Some unnamed universal that well all know it when we see it?  Or is class defined something like if your mom, dad or pastor were standing next to you right now, would they approve of what you are doing?  Nope, that won't work, after all molesting a child would meet the approval of some priests.  How about, no that won't work either, never mind.  Class is like good art, you know it when you see it.

We could ask De Niro, but I'm sure he won't know.  He'd just say F**K Class.

AND BY THE WAY.....


I am not the one that swatted David Hogg's parents home.  But thanks for thinking of me.

HOW DID IT ALL GET SO COMPLICATED?

I remember when sexual preference once meant blonde, brunette, or redhead.

Read an article recently about the job growth in weedtenders or potisters or whatever they were called, the people who 'help' customer buy their pot in states where it's legal.  The article went on and on about all these different hybrids and strains and blah blah blah that goes into all the different types of pot  with cool names with colors and all I can think is "holy crap, they've made getting high complicated now".

When did all this occur?  It didn't happen over night, it has been a slow seep into anything and everything.  Boys and girls, that was life, that was simple.  Now it's boys and girls and about 18 different variations and not even sure boys and girls is allowed any more.

Now wonder the circus closed down.  Imagine the Ring Master opening with "Ladies and Gentlemen, Boys and Girls, Gays and Lesbians, Trans and Grans......" and by the time he got done being all inclusive, the elephants would have died.  Probably of boredom.

Cars are more complicated.  They use to get you from point A to point B.  Now they talk to you, remind you, play music, play phone calls, read your text messages to you, announce when your wife is expecting, tell you where to turn, tell you when to turn, when to burp, where the closest Mexican sushi restaurant is, brand of condoms your 12 year old boy scout purchased for summer camp, whom to vote for, and eventually they will make us buy cars that will do the driving for you, though they have to get over those little issues like  driving into pillars, blowing up into balls of fire, running over bicyclists, you know, those little details like that.

Even food is complicated.  Once you went to the market, then the butcher, your dairy was delivered to the door with the farm fresh eggs, and you knew you were getting locally grown fruits, veggies, steaks, milk.  And you knew it wasn't all gooped up with GMO,  hormones, or poop bacteria.

Is our society today really an improvement over these memories?

Okay, this is an after the fact edit.  There was one thing I forgot to mention.  Baseball.  Once upon a time, for like 100 years, you judge players on how many hits, homers, RBIs, runs scored, stolen bases, wins, losses, saves, ERA.  Now they get writers explaining to you why Dogus Ripensten is having a better year than Sandy Koufax because is WAR over BORE is higher and I'm like WTF?

Some writer will spend two columns explaining why Mike Trout is the best player in the game today and anybody watching him play a few games could have told you that.  When you compare him after X years to Willie, Hank, Ted, Mickey, etc, all these WARS and TORES and I'm like show me hits, homers, RBI's, SB, runs and lifetime batting average and I can answer all those questions without a slide ruler or calculator.

Now we need a statistician to tell us if Chris Sale is good or not.  It's really not that complicated.  But it's sure been made to be.

Cell phones were this great invention, car breaks down at night, you can call for help.  Remember the commercials?  Usually, your wife or daughter, car broken down on lonely creepy road, and she makes the call and will be safe.  That is why you bought the first one, wasn't it.  Now it's attached to you 24/7 and your job will beep you, message you, email you, and call you nights and weekends.  Once upon a time, a person left work and they left work; they would go on two week vacations in the summer.  Now, you are expected to deal 24/7 and get this wage but if you divide your wage by 24/7 you don't make minimum wage.  We don't watch news, it streams to our screen and notifies us something important has happened, which really isn't all that important to you.

We didn't see that coming.   Now I've lost the desire to read.  And I think it's the fault of this technology.  I once would get the latest novel by some author I like and immerse myself in it for hours.  I remember reading a Michael Crichton book, can't remember if it was the airplane wing one or the sex harassment hard drive one, but I read it in 16 hours, with breaks to eat and pee.

Now, I start reading a book and get impatient, thinking I'm missing something, wanting to look at the news, this constant need to update, to be plugged into the net and, well, now it's destroyed my ability to sink into a book.  Complicated.

I yearn for simplicity.  But now simplicity is complicated.

But it's not just me.  Think about this.  In the 20's, 30's, 40's, 50's, 60's, 70's and 80's we ran power plants, refineries, pumped oil, gas, and electricity into homes across America without requiring 'the internet'.  Now, if the net went down, they can't move the electricity, gas, or oil.  Won't be able to do banking.  The 'net' has become the circulatory system of our existence, one good block or break and it will be like a stroke or aneurysm in the human body.

We didn't NEED to hook all these utilities, banking, etc thru the net, but we did because in the quest for simplicity, we made it complicated, vulnerable.  Buying books from amazon or iTunes and having it loaded on an iPad is so much simpler than going to a book store and having a million books lying around your home, yet that same tool addicts your brain and changes who you are.  What was instant gratification in the 1960's, I want it today, not tomorrow,  is something else entirely in the 21st century, where we measure in nanoseconds.

Years became seasons, seasons became weeks, weeks became days, days became hours, hours became nanoseconds.  Complicated.

When does the tool, become the boss?  The servant the master?   It's complicated.

When the world and I were young
Just yesterday
Life was such a simple game
A child could play
It was easy then to tell right from wrong
Easy then to tell weak from strong
When a man should stand and fight
Or just go along

But today there is no day or night
Today there is no dark or light
Today there is no black or white
Only shades of gray

I remember when the answers seemed so clear
We had never lived with doubt or tasted fear
It was easy then to tell truth from lies
Selling out from compromise
Who to love and who to hate
The foolish from the wise

But today there is no day or night
Today there is no dark or light
Today there is no black or white
Only shades of gray

It was easy then to know what was fair
When to keep and when to share
How much to protect your heart
And how much to care

But today there is no day or night
Today there is no dark or light
Today there is no black or white
Only shades of gray
Only shades of gray

THIS POST IS DAVID HOGG FREE.

Hmm, bad day?  Guy in Brazil died after shark bit off his penis.  Still having a bad day?  Okay, it also got his leg but I'm thinking penis is probably what he is thinking while he lie there dying.

Funny thing the news.  Big thing today is 'fake news'.  What is fake news?  Not really sure, cause lots of definitions are going on right now.  The right wing, Trump voters, etc think CNN MSNBC, Times, Post etc are examples of fake news and they make a good argument since those places continually have stories they later have to retract.

They, on the other hand, think anything not owned by a major publicly traded corporation is fake news.  No, that is not what they said, but anything that doesn't march in lockstep with them is fake news.  So Briebart or WND is fake news.  Some think Drudge is fake news when all he does is post headlines with links.

Apple has a news app that you can get headlines from 'trusted' news sources, code for CNN, MSNBC, FOX, Times, Trib, etc.  Type in Alex Jones and will only see stories critical of Jones.

Me?  I read it all.  Alex Jones and Mother Jones. Telegraph and Guardian.  NY Times and Briebart.  I love when an event occurs and you read it and would swear the two stories have nothing in common except it's the same damn event which goes to show almost nobody is writing or doing news that is not skewed badly by their political beliefs.

Do you know CNN linked how Melania Trump hasn't been seen in 3 weeks now and the left is going nuts claiming Trump killed her, no, I'm not making that up.  The same people that mocked birth certificates and Obama's sexual preferences as far right nut jobs is speculating now that Melania is dead and Trump killed her and it's a cover up.

Speaking on Clinton, you know, dead bodies in the WH and all, apparently he was on one of those CNNBCBSABC morning shows doing an interview for the new book, "The President's Pecker is Missing", and got all upset because he started getting asked questions on #metoo and his behavior in WH and now he's got his panties in a wad, media has it's panties in a wad and I'm thinking okay, so what is different between a reporter asking Clinton about that on his book tour and Megan Kelly asking Jane Fonda about plastic surgery and botox on her movie tour?

Why do some of these women think the question to Clinton was appropriate and to Fonda inappropriate?  Why does Clinton think it was inappropriate?

How can a probable pedophile and rapist think anything is inappropriate.  He has standards?

Finally, I lied.  There will now be a 60 day bus tour this summer with kids going around wanting gun control.  Don't see the schedule, but betting Montana, Wyoming, Utah, AZ, TX, OK, GA and AL won't be on the tour.

My how the world changed.  Back in the 60's is was Ken Kesey Electric Acid Kool Aid bus trip, today it's millennials wanting to ban guns in the name of love.  Sigh, I guess that means these kids won't be getting summer jobs.

Speaking of Kool Aid, back in the 60's there was another brand also popular Funny Face or something like that, go lookup the commercials on youtube.  It was 'sweetened' without sugar, so the first 'diet' powdered drink with fake sugars but it's also hilarious because its' so politically incorrect with Injun' Orange and Chinese Cherry

'nuff for now.


I MISS BILL CLINTON

Saw interview with ol' BC,  well, read the transcript actually, and I miss that guy.

Oh, I don't miss the fact the the guy boinks anything that moves, I mean he walks into a pet store and the fish quit swimming, and I don't want to think about his flights on Lolita Airlines or Hillary and his or Web's daughter telling us how we should live.

But, man, I miss that guy telling bold face whoppers and everyone believing it.  I mean, remember when he said when he'd fly back to the states from Oxford England and land in NY and had a long layover how he use to love just walking the streets up and down Harlem?  People ate that crap up!

Cause every one knows nothing gonna happen to a overweight white country boy wearing his bib overalls and herringbone tweed sports coat with elbow patches he bought in Oxford, just wandering the streets of Harlem in the early 70's.  

"Hey, my names Bill Clinton, what's happening brother?"
"I say, that Henry Aaron is certainly a credit to his race!"

Okay, he didn't say the last one, that is from Mad Magazine doing their review of Live and Let Die and had Roger Moore's James Bond say that right before he got punched in the mouth.  Strange the stuff from childhood we remember.  Well, teen years.

Where was I.....

Oh, so what hit this morning that made me start thinking about this was our former president is on a book tour touting his new book, "Have Pecker, Will Travel", no wait that's not right, "The President's Pecker is Missing", that's it,  claiming that he doesn't owe anyone any apology for what happened with his intern, he was THE VICTIM.  Gawd I love this guy.  And how he was defending the constitution by not resigning in shame and letting the impeachment process move forward.

The best was how they left the WH broke.  Sixteen million in debt.  Which is pretty damn close to what he got for a speech in Russia when Hillary was Sec of State and not long afterwards approved the uranium purchase, but that was about 12 years after Bill left office.

How did the poor man survive?  How does a man 16 million in debt afford that home in NY so his wife could run for senator from NY?

Every guy in the country is being chastised and left in ruin for so much as kissing Mary Jo Easy on the monkey bars in 2nd grade without getting written permission, witnessed by two non family members and notarized.  Any woman who steps forward with any story about Trump is given immediate authenticity while the line of women who have accused Clinton are scum, trailer trash, or someone just wanting to write a book.

By the way, Bill Clinton, after leaving office, got a 15 million dollar advance to write those memories down on paper, or, more like talk into a recorder and someone else will turn it into a book with his name on it.  Nice when you are 16 million in debt that your first job gives you a 15 million bonus up front.

Here is the thing though about Clinton, you just want to like the guy.  I mean if you had a chance to play golf with a former president, which would you choose?  Bush Jr.?  Obama???  No way, you would go with Clinton and have a great time (especially if you had to fly on Lolita Express to Hilton Head for the afternoon of golf - well, unless you have some sort of problem with adult men boinking 8th grade girls, or boys, prude), and will tell all your friends about what a great guy Bill is.

Bill Clinton, "I was the victim" "Hey, if you had your pecker out of your pants some afternoon in your office, cause you know all guys do that,  and a 22 year old intern happened by, saw it and started to give you a BJ, would you say stop?"  "I was a victim!"

Now stop, go back and give it your best imitation of Bill Clinton and say that out loud and then tell me if that doesn't sound exactly like what Clinton would say.  But, now this is important, if you are work and especially if you are in a meeting, don't read that out loud, it will cause all sorts of alarms in Human Resources.

Why does google auto capitalize Human Resources?  But not god?  Strange.

You know who/what Bill Clinton reminds me of?  There is an old Twilight Zone episode, here, let me look it up - yes I'm doing research, don't faint, "Hocus Pocus and Frisby",  about this loud mouth braggart who owns a local store and is always telling the biggest whoppers.

The sad thing is, go back and watch Bill Clinton give a campaign speech and realize he is funnier than any stand up comedian around today, I am assuming Emo Phillips no longer does stand up.  He would clean up hosting a late night talk show.

Which is why I would love for the justice department, who am I kidding, or the media, wait, that is even funnier than the justice department, go after the Clinton Foundation: you know that non profit organization that billions were funneled to by countries and companies looking for favors from Hillary or Bill and is run by their daughter who is paid 6 million a year to run the foundation; I would love for that place to be audited.

I can just see the headlines now, finding how they collected hundreds of millions of dollars for Haitian relief, 'sent' less than 10 % of what was collected via giving the money to companies to rebuild and nothing ever gets built (called a payoff in any other circumstance)  and all the other ways the foundation took in hundreds of millions of dollars as 'payback' for political favors and Bill will get out in front of the microphones and cameras and say something like "whoa, there's math?  everyone knows I can't do math, once I run out of fingers and toes I'm totally lost" and the majority of Americans will laugh and do a Homer oh me too and all will be forgiven.

Bill, was the victim.  I'll bet those 13 and 14 year old girls on the plane attacked him while he was trying to take a nap and before he knew it they had him naked and were doing all sorts of things to him but it wasn't his fault, he'd taken a sleeping pill or something and and and and and and........

And he just keeps getting away with it.

DAVID HOGG FINALLY GETS IT, ACCIDENTALLY

Poor David Hogg, walked right into the truth and doesn't even realize it.  Thought he was clever and witty and got his lunch handed to him but nailed the truth.

Hogg posted something about a year without a school shooting and then cleverly said 'not in my lifetime'.  Which is true and makes the point.

These mass school shootings are not new, there was one in the 1980's in Illinois, if I recall, but the regularity at which they happen is.  In other words, you can go back to the 20's 30's 40's 50's 60's 70's and 80's and find one or two each decade; one or two times someone went bonkers with a gun or bomb.  It was not until millennials started hitting the school systems that the multiple times a year started.  And the nail that Hogg hit squarely is these mass school shootings are being done by the millennial and zero generations.

Gen X, Baby Boomers, Silent, and WWII generations didn't do this crap.  And guns were more widely available then than now, though in fairness, I'm not sure high capacity magazines in semi automatic rifles were as available.  Or semi automatics for that matter.

Those previous generations did scout camps and jamborees and dressed as Indians and learned how to build tents, teepees, fires, catch food and all sorts of outdoor things.  Today, they bring condoms - I'm not even going to ask why condoms are needed when 500 young boys are camping, please don't tell me why - just it is so wrong.

But then no kid back then would have seriously considered even touching one of their dad's guns, knowing if they did they'd get their hind end tanned, chores doubled, and grounded for life.

Millennials and Gen Zero get 'timed out'.  And drugged.  As far as I can find, from Columbine to movie theaters to VT or NIU to Florida discos - all the shooters were ADAXYZ or whatever they were called and because parents no longer discipline their kids and teachers no longer can discipline the kids, it was left to doctors to drug gets with anti psychotic pills that it appears achieve what it was designed to prevent, psychotics.

So I have a new plan to 'save the children' or whatever the heck they are calling themselves.  No millennial or Gen Zero can purchase guns or ammo.  Any parent with a millennial or Gen Zero kid must have a gun safe.

My gosh, those two laws would have stopped almost all the school shootings.  That is the plan.  Little Eddie Munster all growed up, David Hogg, now has a good solution.

Read two interesting papers this week and now can't find either of them.  First one is a study where they are trying to show how the birds survived what killed the dinosaurs.  Finally, I've been stopping evolutionists in their tracks since the 1980's who claim birds evolved from dinosaurs and after agreeing how the Dinos died off 65 million years ago I say 'can I ask one more question?  how did the birds survive?'  And no one can answer that question with any logic or reason.  Now the paper doesn't actually prove anything, but shows they are trying to answer that question.

Several days later, a more interesting paper where the scientists have determined that over 90% of life on earth 'appeared' around the same time.  They even quote the scientists who said they redid and redid the experiment, redid the numbers several times because they were not expecting that result, couldn't believe the results, but in the end published because the data doesn't lie.  Basically it shuts down the whole evolved over millions and millions of years.

But then evolution has been hanging on a thread for 40 years.  Now science itself has snipped the thread, but do not worry atheists!  See panspermia has been being touted for the last 20 or 30 years, when life on earth was 'seeded' by aliens.  That is the new going theory how life came about here, that miracle in primordial soup has been dumped as myth, now we are seeded by aliens and this new study will be used to justify the theory.

No actual proof mind you, but the scientific rules of proof are much more lenient for science than they are for anything outside their little box of reality.
