In Case You've Wondered

My blog is where my wandering thoughts are interspersed with stuff I made up. So, if while reading you find yourself confused about the context, don't feel alone. I get confused, too.

If you're here for the stories, I started another blog:

One other thing: sometimes I write words you refuse to use in front of children, or polite company, unless you have a flat tire, or hit your thumb with a hammer.

I don't use them to offend; I use them to embellish.

More of the Same

I've been busy, so blogging is light.

This morning, after reading the news, the only thing I can write is that everything is the same. The Obamacare fiasco is still a fiasco; only worse.

Our allies are pissed because of the spying, which I can understand. Although this doesn't surprise me, the fact the NSA is collecting huge amount of data for mining is disturbing. Considering one man had access to things that were above his security level means there is no security. The information is just one more database to be hacked and the information abused.

The debt is climbing, although the "transparent" administration is cooking the books to make it look like it's not. Surprised? I'm not. It's typical for Washington D.C. and the bureaucrats that require lots of money to continue their useless endeavors.

Income is down; prices are up and the media is still feckless.

There you are. Things haven't changed, although it is almost Halloween. I'll be glad when it's over. The Halloween hype and constant barrage of Halloween crap for weeks is irritating, although the Christmas crap is soon to be a daily deluge of sale efforts. Considering the new costs of health insurance for most folks, little Timmy might be surprised on Christmas day. A promissory note for the deductible for an M.R.I. isn't quite the same as a new PlayStation.

    1. It's definitely a trend and not a good trend.

  2. California is confiscating legal firearms. New York is recalling gun permits issued to anyone taking anti-depressants. Mothers of sons who carry illegally in Florida are up in arms to have weapons removed: mostly from ME, so that their sons are safe. Insurance companies are dropping people who are eligible for ObamaCareless. And their premiums will not reflect covering fewer people. The rest of us will pay higher premiums to make up for the insurance companies drop in income.

    There's no such thing as options, or freedom to choose.

    But I DO choose to ignore all holidays based on greed and begging.

    1. According to some recent articles, the insurance companies that were on board with Obamacare are finding they will not be receiving much revenue without the individual mandate. We'll see who wins that debacle. I have a feeling the elimination of private insurance was the original intention and foolish, greedy corporate insurance officials were stupid enough to trust this administration.

      Meanwhile, those trying to sign up to Obamacare are finding they can't afford it and deciding they'll just pay the fine for now.
