"Can you Say "Lame Duck" Three Times Fast?"


Comment..... I wrote this in 2010 around the time of the British Petroleum oil leak in the Gulf of Mexico. At the time I called it "The Future News"..... There are times when I have to laugh, even at the stuff I write.... Actually, its at times like this we really need something to laugh about. The truth is, how close is this to becoming a reality? ... Can you say "Lame Duck" three times fast....

Washington D.C. May 26, 2090.…In the Future news today, the Al-Qaeda Daily, Arab press and the Muslim news reported that the Arctic ocean, the last ocean to be free from the leaking oil from the Gulf of Mexico is now totally polluted…officially, the White House reports and confirms that all oceans are now thick with oil the consistency of pudding. The President was at a fund raiser in Arabia yesterday seeking donations for reelection but as an afterthought confirmed that there is no more sea life living in any ocean. A committee is being formed to oversee the existing committee on discussing a bail out program for British Petroleum. …British Petroleum said today they are still working hard to cap the leak in the gulf by putting sand on top of the hole but reports it’s a time consuming job. Meanwhile the last of the Whales and Sea Turtles are putting themselves on shore preferring to suffocate on land rather the in the ocean. When asked about the scarcity of drinking water in the United States the president said, the government will provide bottled water on the third Wednesday of every month. Limit is two 12 once bottles per family of four. Non-citizens will receive six 12 ounce bottles. When ask why that is? …The president replied, "because we need to be nice to our foreign friends. They showed great courage crossing the border in all that gunfire". In other news the Senate just voted a unanimous yes to appropriate from American taxpayers, the money to build a 33 Billion dollar, 80 room Western White House in Dubai.
In other future news …. The committee overseeing the committee seeking to elect Mohammed Abdul Mohammed Jr. President of the United States is seeking funds from the United Arab Emirates and Dubai. Dubai, the capital of the Mid-east recently completed building an artificial ocean with profits from raising gas prices in the United States $291.99 per gallon.…. If elected he will be the fifth President to admit being a Muslim of the highest order.. When asked, He said he will, “Use American Tax dollars to build a Mosque in every Federal building in the United States. “And that’s a campaign promise”, he was heard saying in Arabic to his press secretary. He later commented that the new law concerning woman will go into effect on June 1st making it mandatory that all woman in the United States must wear full Muslim robes or suffer the consequences of being stoned to death on the city street by the Jihad police…
And that’s the Future News for today, May 26, 2090…Stay tuned…

"Breaking the Silence"

Have you noticed that I've been very quiet lately? I guess you could say I have been gathering my thoughts while trying to find the new me and now I think that I have. The silence started with having a new girlfriend and sort of thinking why me, why now? Today its hard to describe the contentedness I feel. Did you ever wonder if there is a perfect match? A perfect person? Someone that fits you to a tee? Someone that you have been waiting for, for a long time. It all started about 2 months ago and now I have become a we. Its like I have been searching all my life for this beautiful woman. I found her at long last and its like we have been cast from the some mold. If I was with this woman twenty years ago we would be together today.  If you don't know me, you could describe me, to put it mildly as the guy that is always looking for right companion. I have finally found, first a friend and confidant now a lover and companion. When we met we knew or at least I did that I didn't have to look anymore. The old clich√®, "I never knew that I could feel this way again" is time worn but its true... When I found her I found a new life and a new reason to live. My life is totally changed. I'm a new person, I'm finally happy.

"U.S. Sends Trainers for Mali-bound Force"

U.S. sends trainers for Mali-bound force - The Washington Post

The United States has dispatched about 100 military trainers to six nations that will contribute troops to a pan-African force being prepared for deployment to Mali, the State Department said Friday.

 Comment......Here we go again? Who is paying for this? Is "trainers" another word for contractors? Mercenary's? They dress like troops are they soldiers or civilians? Are they going to train those people to kill other people? Who volunteered to do this? They mentioned equipment. What kind of equipment? When they say the United States is sending, exactly who do they mean? Who gave the order? Who planned for this?  Who is making money? I mean that's what this is all about, isn't It? Doesn't the world hate us enough? I didn't have anything to do with this decision so don't hate me. Personally I'm for minding my own business.

"Makers of Violent Video Games to Fend Off Regulation"


Makers of Violent Video Games Marshal Support to Fend Off Regulation - NYTimes.com

 New York Times.......The $60 billion Video game industry is facing intense political pressure from an unlikely alliance of critics who say that violent imagery in video games has contributed to a culture of violence.

 Comment.........Does a parent these days say to a kid? "Yes, I'll get you a game but first, you have to realize that its fake and not real, its only a game. Nice people don't really do these things. Of coarse then you have to say movies are fake, the killing is only acting or make-believe. Then there is the the violent news on TV and telling them, reality shows are not real. After a while its confusing and the violence is imbedded in their young minds. It is programing them...It just goes on and on. There are no parents home. They are working to pay their high rent, food, and that $4.00 a gallon for gas to do these things...They say, "Oh well I'll just buy the kid a game system to keep busy until I get home". Then the call from the school comes, little Johnny is making threats to his class mates. The truth is, he doesn't know any better! Think about this.......ITS A $60 BILLION DOLLAR INDUSTRY...that doesn't care about you or your kids. Its always only about the money....

"A Hug From a Stranger"



   While I was walking on the beach last night I met a young woman. Well, compared to me she was young. She stopped me and asked for information about where we were. She was obviously new to the area. It was very cold and it was just her and me and miles of beach and seagulls. We started talking about where we were and she mentioned to me that her husband walked out on her after many years of marriage and she just moved to the area...No, I don’t why things like this happen to me…I told her the short version on how same thing happened to me a few years ago and explained that it takes time to get over that kind of trauma after so many years of being together. I explained that one of the first steps of healing process is to learn to like yourself and to take life a little at a time. The end of this conversation led to a hug after I suggested to her that it was fate that we met and that I would pray for her. She made me promise that I would and I did. Her name was Debbie. Yesterday, I hugged a perfect stranger on the beach. What a nice surprise. I really like when that happens...

"Sort of a Laid Back Life"

  Today is one of those days that I am sitting here looking at the little blinking line on the word processor. Sometimes its a challenge to come up with something interesting to write about. Oh well, lets face it. By choice I live a very, I’ll never say boring life. More like, “Laid back life” is a good description . Lets see, hmm, I could write about the past but nothing brilliant comes to mind…..I could write about the future but lets face it, we really don’t know what’s going to happen even in the next few minutes. Here's proof read on..      
  I was thinking yesterday afternoon on the way home in the car in the wind and cold that I was almost home safely.....  Wait, I thought, not really. I was 2 miles from home and approaching an intersection and I thought, what if someone goes through the red light and broadsides my car? .... No, I made it through the light but did slow down and looked both ways first. Then I thought, as I was driving by a convenience store. What if someone with a gun comes out shooting and inadvertently fires at my car as I’m driving by? No, that didn’t happen…..I then glanced in the rear view mirror and thought what if someone rear ended me, in an out of control Toyota going a 100 miles an hour. Nope...Nobody was behind me. A mile to go now and I thought as I was driving down my tree lined street on this windy day, what if a tree limb broke and one of these huge branches went through my windshield. Nope, not today. Now I’m a half mile from home and I thought what if someone is shooting at cars "sniper style" from one of these homes, because of rage and anger and randomly shoots at me? Didn’t happen…. Wow, I was turning into my drive way thinking safe at last but wait, what if there is a terrorist in my building with a bomb? Well, I won’t go into that……Laid back or boring? These days life in this country, if you still call a country, is really one day at a time. Are you in control of your life or is that Higher Power that I always talk about, sort of watching over things? I was 2 miles from home yesterday and oh well, you know what I mean………How long will it be before you will see a sale at Walmart on bullet proof vests? Sizes small, medium, large, extra large and rotund....

"Kitty In the Woods"


   The other day I seen a discarded Tuxedo cat in the woods. He or she quickly, in a cats usual sneaky way disappeared into the brush behind a building...Yesterday I think I seen that same cat who is still out there in the cold....I happened to have a can of cat food in my car because I do these things just in case I see a kitten in the woods when I go by. I fed this cat with the hopes that it comes back to eat the food. I have done that many times and when I return the next day the food is gone. I always think that at least there is creature out there with a full belly.
    I don’t know why people, if they qualify as people? Subhuman would be more like it, would drop off a cat or any creature for that matter to try and survive in the woods. It would be just as easy and they would feel better about themselves if they would just go to the humane society leave it there. I realize saying that to someone like this is like talking to a brick... There are no questions asked if you do this. I describe people who drop off creatures to survive on their own in the woods like this....
    They are usually losers and cruel to their kids and family. They have no conscience and are insensitive to their co-workers and parents. They have no social skills and have the habit of walking with their head down and only smile if they want something. They never say thank you or please and they very seldom make eye contact. They will lie if put on the spot even if it’s a very simple meaningless thing. Psychopaths like this will be caught sooner or later doing something inappropriate to other animals or creatures. They don’t like themselves and will try to be something or someone else. They are not very creative and are not responsible. They live dull boring lives. If you spot one of these bottom-feeders wandering the streets call your local psycho pickup for recycling. You will doing the world a favor...
