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.

Harry Reid is Exhausted

Senator Harry Reid was hospitalized for "feeling bad, and has now been released, with the okay to return to work.

I don't know about you, but I've been around older folks, when they reach the point of exhaustion. It's a point of no return and the only way to prevent further episodes is to scale back their work and think seriously about their life.

Now, old Harry may say otherwise, but his days are numbered as Senator. His mental acuity will suffer, his stamina will not carry him through tough political episodes and his backers are alerted that they need to find a replacement as soon as possible. Harry may lose some of his reasoning abilities and reveal things some may always want to remain hidden.

So, Harry is finished. How all this ends will be revealed in the near future. Personally, I'm glad he's going. He's not a good person and has damaged the U.S. with his actions.

Goodbye Harry. Don't let the door hit you in the ass, on the way out.


  1. Senators can usually stay in office until a Dr. says "call the time of death". See Byrd, Kennedy etc.. Losing mental and physical acuity very seldom will be the reason that a senator quits.

    1. That's true, but I don't see Nevada as being a "business as usual" state. I don't see a dawdling old man as someone the citizens will embrace over time.

  2. His mental acuity will suffer.
    Hasn't affected Pelosi's career.

  3. "His mental acuity will suffer. "
    Didn't he suffer a stroke back around the mid '00's? I'd say it's BEEN suffering.

    If we can't have term limits on members of the legislative branch, we should at the very least require them to pass independently certified quarterly mental health examinations, with the stipulation that 2 consecutive failures forces their seat into a mandatory election of a replacement by the citizens he/she represents.... not an appointment by another governing official. Costly? Sure, but if I had to pay extra for the safety on any gun I purchase as an option I'd happily pay for it. I've learned over my years that loose cannon politicians are a bigger threat to people than any gun ever has been.

  4. I may be wrong, but I sense a shift. Harry Reid is associated with Obamacare and it's an albatross that he can't shed.

    Time will tell.
