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.

Back From Galveston

I left Monday, started a small job, finished this afternoon, and I'm home again. I didn't bring my computer, so I couldn't comment about the stark raving mad pieces of crap  protesters in Ferguson.

I've decided there's a small group of people in this country that wander from one protest, to another, mooching on the freebies provided by subversive political groups, and can only be described as derelicts. Too many are criminals or substance abusers. When they come to a city, the danger to citizens increases, municipal costs rise due to increased law enforcement, and only a tiny percentage of the people that live near the protest wish they were there.

What's the solution? Water cannons, tear gas, armed citizens, and a media that's willing to condemn their actions. They'd go away, if there weren't so many freebies, potential crime victims and a media that panders to those that have only anarchy on their mind.


  1. It's an industry that folks like Al Sharpton and Jessie Jackson thrive on. As they would tell you, 'it's a living.'

    And it will not go away any time soon. You'll note that it only occurs in urban areas. These scumbags know their turf, and stick to it: areas where gun control laws ensure they won't get shot up while looting a liquor store.

    1. Rural communities would run them off, and anyone trying to destroy, or loot, would find that was their last act on Earth.

  2. This is a pretty good analysis of what is going on.

    1. Unless I've missed something, there's no official job title of "protester". People have to eat, so unless many of the protesters don't require food, are independently wealthy, or are on vacation,somebody is providing nourishment.

      I can't believe the entire bunch is local, really concerned and are willing to endure discomfort because a thug was shot, while assaulting a police officer.

  4. I have rejoined as viewing publicly. I don't comment much and have followed a lot of blogs anonymously to avoid causing problems. I think Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson are professional trouble makers. I think it's funny they want to be called "Reverend". good post!

    1. Thanks. If there was a genuine effort on their part to be productive, they would have a strong desire to turn around the degradation of families in communities. That's the biggest problem I see. The strong families I was familiar with during my youth are becoming more scarce, and the black community appears to be most affected.
