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.

They Don't Realize

Too many politicians, too much of the media, too much of academia, and too many of those that inhabit the largest cities don't realize they're completely out of touch. They never think of the hard labor that leads to their meals, how many hours were spent in brutal weather to keep their infrastructure intact, how many truckers spent long hours hauling goods, how their electricity is made, or that they've managed to alienate those that have complete control over their existence. It's folly on their part, and maybe dangerous.


  1. i've been saying for years, we don't have to go to war with them, just stop doing The Things that we do that ultimately lead to their survival. if we all took a month off, or took a month to network to sell our goods n services locally instead of shipping it off. or those lmi's in the city, say the water plant operators/ bread truck drivers, just don't show up. they would be rioting in a week, eating each other in two or three.

    1. When large cities become too dangerous to deliver goods, the lack of supplies will lead to problems they can't handle. From my perspective, the heart of many large cities are already in this condition, and when it widens, citizens will either react, flee, or adopt a form of anarchy.

    2. i think katrina and other disasters show the way. yes many left ahead of the floodwaters but a large group stayed waiting for the govt to help them. a few years back we had a derecho, big wind storm. knocked out power for ten days plus. i watched in amazement as the city folk nearby just sat on their porches waiting for the govt to tell them what to do/bring them food. on day two i was checking on neighbors and running supplies from less impacted areas a hundred miles away. the city folk were screaming n crying about their ebt didn't work and all their food, crappy frozen food, was ruined. not a can in the cupboard, no idea how to cook real food. but sat there they did until the trucks got thru.

    3. I live in a rural area, so most everyone is self-sufficient, and ready for a disaster. Some in the nearby larger cities are ready for a disaster, but there are too many that are wards of the government. If it gets bad enough, they'll steal supplies from those that do, even if it requires violence.
