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.

Kinder and Gentler

I've found kinder and gentler approaches are a waste of time with vermin. Cockroaches, rats, mice and snakes don't respond to anything but terminal solutions. With that in mind, the approach should work for many of the reprobates constantly in the news.

Just Watching and Thinking

I didn't watch Muellor's testimony, but the snippets in the news indicate he was basically a wall hanger. Regardless of the hype, he appeared as clueless, and an obvious figurehead to use for wrong doing.

Barr wants to reinstate the death penalty. That bring a few things to mind, but mostly the thought that a man that is willing to kill someone for a heinous crime will be willing to prosecute a traitor. I doubt I'm the only one thinking this, and wonder if a few former politicians are looking for real estate in a foreign country.

The economy appears as good, but the government is still spending more than it takes in. For an individual, the borrowing ends long before a lending institution is placed in a compromising position. For government entities, the borrowing ends when the citizens have a few lynchings.

Stress is one of those things that leads to only four options:

Handle the problem

Run from the problem.

Hide from the problem.

Jump from a bridge.

That's all I have time for today.

Absurdity at Its Finest

The four members of the "Squad", are given some sort of credibility by a media that's as ignorant as a box of rocks. The four are seditionists, criminals, and generally trashy reprobates that manged to get elected by constituents with the brain power of garden vegetable. The media - of course - doesn't care, but continues with their disregard for decency. After all, they can continue as long as anyone links to them, or the idiot outlets like the AP.

Bandwidth and Thievery

Bandwidth can be expensive. I know this because I've always paid for that I use. That's why I detest pop-ups, programs that decide to download crap I don't need, and the constant pestering of ads.

I'm sure an attorney would tell me there is something hidden in the fine print of some program I use that allows such things, but my answer to them is there are too many attorneys, and a good purge might lead to the elimination of such thievery.

Politics of Ignorance

I don't know if it has something to do with perception, or people are generally becoming ignorant to the point of no return, but it's apparent a substantial amount of people that are involved with government are as dumb as a bag of hammers. To make things worse, those that elect the lawmakers are even dumber. I don't know who to blame for this, but I have a feeling those that are supposed to teach are increasingly only portraying the narrative; and the narrative has no basis in fact.

One Hundred and One...

...degrees Fahrenheit on the shaded porch this evening.....that's too hot, and tomorrow it's supposed to be hotter.

My wife, and I, went for a short trip to see where I worked before. She was game to the trip, and I was curious about a place where I worked over twenty years ago.

When I worked there, I was without my own vehicle, so I only saw the hotel, the restaurant next door, and the sights in between work and home. I missed much, and things that caught my eye soon disappeared behind. 

It was interesting, and brought back memories. The old store in the middle of nowhere, where we would keep things for out lunch, was long closed. When opened, it was the only place for miles, and had anything you wanted; including pipe, fittings, and any hardware desired. I'm sure the old man that ran the store is long gone, and it's obvious nobody stepped up to take it over.

As we wandered, I thought of things today. In between our stops to examine historical places, I realized how much is lost forever. Entire towns are gone, or shrunk to empty buildings that will never have a business again. Either bypassed by a highway, or discontinued by train service, commerce lost its grip, and those still behind can only remember a past that will have no new memories.

I think few people grasp the dynamics of society. It's too easy to wander aimlessly, and not try to understand how there is always an evil intent by those that seek power. Not only do these people acquire power in devious ways, they buy the media to guarantee their actions are hidden from decent people. For anyone that wants to seek answers, the effort requires a strong willingness to understand how easy it is to forget the lessons history teaches.

Nothing that happens is new, and liberty will always be tenuous. Keeping it requires harsh penalties for those that attempt to remove liberty, and waiting too long to punish these people always leads to armed conflict, which usually leads to the subjugating of citizens. The past disappears and history is rewritten to match the narrative.
