I am tired. From a political viewpoint, I am tired of what we as Americans have become. More than that, I am ashamed that we have become an uneducated mass of Jello that holds no honor, gives no compassion nor cares what those on the opposite side of the aisle have to believe. The mantra everywhere is, ‘I am right, there is nothing else’. There is no honor, no fairness and not a smidgen of intelligent conversation about the problems we face here in this great Nation. Our politicians are setting an example that many are already following, and we all are the worse for it. The only truth there is... Read More
Our Trying Times
11 April 08
There's a thought on my part that we as a society and culture have traveled past the point of no return. That American intelligence and innovation are definitions of our past. It is as if a great evil has crept into our collective and individual souls, blinding us to the necessity of finding common ground to solve our problems. There appears to be a dark, foreboding presence, scripting the final days of our free society. What other explanation is their for our Senate to approve a bill that gives comfort to major corporations and industry while claiming assistance to those who face severe economic troubles
I’m going out and buying one of those large mirror thing-ma-jigs that the police use to look for bombs under cars. Guess what I’m going to do with it, and where... Damn, I gotta get a job like this Feinstein chica, or a husband... I also have been asking our Government to open Area 51, but for a different reason. I want my saucer back!!... OK, I’ll watch Through the Wormhole tonight, but only because I want an answer to a question I’ve been asking, like, forever... Who said, “...If we minded our own business we would live in a far less dangerous world...” I'm for hire, yes I am, for 264$ a day. Now hire me!... Damn, it’s so cold the great lakes are frozen, the good news is that spring will be here in about two weeks... Wow, that’s all I can say about this story. If you thought the pot wars were over, read this. It’s really a good and interesting read...
I have been a tried and true Survivor fan since I was a kid of 42 or 43. I distinctly remember the morning at work after the first episode of the first season aired. At first break, several of us were setting outside around an old green picnic table that had seen it’s day, wondering what we had watched the night before. Say what you will, but the show was groundbreaking. Read More
OK, first thing you need to know, is that I woke up on the wrong side of the bed this dreary March morning. Yep, this morning with the dull, overcast sky and a temp of 15 above. The lack of sun makes it feel like 15 below. I didn't ... Read More
Half a league, Half a league onward
For a historical perspective, the region is where the famous “Charge of the Light Brigade” occurred during the Battle of Balaclava. The 1936 movie of the same name, staring Errol Flynn was inspired by the event, as was the famous poem by Lord Alfred Tennyson More
I’m not gay! I’m not bi, a tranny or into any thing outside what is considered the norm. I’ve been married to the same women, the mother of my four sons, for about thirty years. I don’t understand the lifestyle, but that may be because I’ve never attempted to learn anything about it, much the same way I’ve never learned about being Black or Latino in America. More
If granted grace to lie my tired old soul along this journey, I would not do so.
