The above title is Spanish for feeling unhinged. It is a word that I feel is appropriate for my state of mind. I am still smarting from being censured by Face Book yesterday. I am literally gun shy to publish anything fearing those “Independent Fact Checkers” will find my content unfavorable to delicate liberal ears. A better word would be “Incensed” but I over-used that particular word a lot yesterday. The fact that there were no facts in my blog post to object to, infuriates me. I voiced some conservative opinions which was the crime for which I was condemned. I will, from this point on, refer to them as the “Brown Shirts” of the liberal media.
I guess I will proceed and irritate them some more. I may never be able to publish again since I have gotten my name in their McCarthy files. They probably have a bigger dossier on me than J Edgar Hoover and the FBI. Enemy number one, a dangerous Christian Conservative. I also drink, have a carry...
I am feeling a little pensive about several things, which can also be described as contemplative or meditative. A variety of words for an indescribable mood. A mood in which one tries to put into print that which he or she is feeling. It can also be portrayed as brooding, delving into one’s innermost emotions, plausibly, about fears for the future, reflective.
I am an old man who is “long in the tooth” and has weathered many years fraught with the maelstroms of events that have come and gone in this saga of mankind. I have seen so much, possibly too much in my lifetime. I have cheered when Americans landed on the moon. I witnessed the assassination of a President. I fought in a war and survived its horrors, along with a divorce that nearly killed me. No bullet is as lethal as some things. I have witnessed 250,000,000 people killed in tragic blow delivered by a Christmas tidal wave. I have observed the horror of wars fought all over the world....
YES! Yes! Yes! Let’s get America going! Get off your ass and go back to work! All of you kids, get dressed and get on the school bus. You teachers get back to the classroom. In other words, let's get the world back to normal, like it was before this Covid 19 thing.
All you scared folks, stay at home until next year or when they produce a viable vaccine. Even if you aren’t afraid, use common sense, if you are elderly or have an underlying health issue, avoid crowds and even grandchildren.
Our economy is dying and so is the world’s. We will always have naysayers who wail derision about people dying. The news media sources scare us on purpose. It is their job to foment the direst circumstances imaginable to earn their salary and increase their notoriety. The more salacious and doom inspiring the print the more they muster.
We know stuff now! Kids aren’t prone to get this or are asympto...
Well! I’ll be dipped in dog shit for posting such as this but it ain’t my fault. With this Covid thing and all the idiocy, I thought I might amuse some of you with my unique male perspective on the subject.
Some of you know that my oldest daughter is in Egypt, teaching American History and Government to elite Egyptian kids, who will do their graduate work in the United States. At present she is quarantined like the rest of us but in a third world country. She has always been outgoing and free spirited and sought adventure. Good for her! I'm Proud of her! How many of you, after becoming an empty nester, would sell or give away all your stuff, then pack up and travel the world in search of “Whatever blows your skirt up” adventure?
Okay! Back to the subject, as noted above. I follow my daughter on Facebook and listen in on her and her friends, she has oodles of them. My daughter is ever the friend maker and has made acquaintances wherever...
As I watch the events evolve concerning past Vice President Joe Biden, I find myself intrigued. I will predicate this post by first stating I didn’t vote for Trump nor Hillary in the last election. I consider myself an independent but conservative. I abhor abortion so that puts me on the political right
I like Uncle Joe because of his amiable character and flashing smile. He is the epitome of the friendly politician, baby hugger and girl kisser. He has been in politics for forty years, so we know who and what he is. As with all politicians, he will say whatever is appropriate, flip flopping and denying with that smiley candor of his. He is the typical elite politician.
