"Change"

  


As I sit here safe and sound in my brick building listening to the Hurricane winds howl outside my window I was thinking...  I know a lot of people who resist change. I am glad I am not one of them. They say you can't go back. Well I disagree. I went back to the way it was and I was accepted with smiles and open arms by many who live in the same building as I. There were a few non-believers but the good out number those. However, its not exactly the same but the way I did it was smart. Its called acceptance and admitting my mistakes and I'm glad I did it. Its a new start not starting again. I changed a lot of things. I have all new friends and even go to different stores to do my shopping.. I think I have a new world record on "not" going to Walmart.. I am proud to say I haven't been to that place in 4 weeks. I did notice the prices are not as low as that place in other stores but there are things that cost less also. I don't mind paying a little more just for the peace of mind..It makes up for the difference. Anyways, my apartment is on the end in what I call the quiet corner and I have no remorse in coming back.. I cannot imagine how they are getting through this storm where I used to live in those wooden buildings with no emergency generator.. We will see what happens... And as always stay tuned and God bless..

"Racism"


Racism is worse than it ever was. It will never stop. Its been going on since the slaves were set free. Changing street names, relocating or knocking down a few statues will never help.. Like banning the Confederate flag, its only going to piss people off..The fighting will get worse and people will die.. Always remember , “No history is mute. No matter how much they own it, break it, and lie about it, human history refuses to shut its mouth. Despite deafness and ignorance, the time that was continues to tick inside the time that is.” - Eduardo Galeno

"Still Here"

I was thinking.. Here I am after a three year adventure into the unknown.. Someone said I was on a Sabbatical.. True although not in a religious sense, I actually explored the whole East Coast of America while on my search for a warmer climate to live in… I did live in World War II housing so primitive I was embarrassed. As you know I would go to various Motels just to get out or get away from my surrounding's. I give credit to the people that live in that place just for staying there.. I tried to explain to them that there were better places but they were stuck there.. However some left including myself but they continue to stay.. I guess people become locked in to somewhere moving is too inconvenient or too much work.. My Dad said "I have gypsy blood" because of my desire to move at a moments notice.. I think I'm done with that though… Stay tuned…

"New Day"


 The tourists and lookie-loos will be gone soon and my beaches will be vacant again..  My new thing now to do is go to the beach and listen to my book on CD on my phone. I have a comfortable new low beach chair and all I have to do is lay back and listen.. I got here in July and have not installed my Air Conditioner.. I've gotten three pretty low electric bills so far.  That’s how I count how long I've been home… What does that mean? I don't know.. Its getting cooler I guess. I'm on the sun comes in the morning side of the building so its naturally cooler now in my apartment.
        I've thought about it but I haven't been back to the old place. That's a good thing. I do miss a few people there but I really don't want to be in that area anymore.. Here I have been finding new shortcuts through the woods where there is no traffic. Speed seems to be the way everyone does things now-a-days so no traffic in the woods is the way to go.. Just like the old days. No highways where everyone seems to be going 95 mph plus..  Takes a little longer but I love it… Its true my life is changing for the good I think.. I don't look at what happened to me as a bad thing. It was a tough learning experience.. My loving Dad was right as usual when he said, "You learn by your mistakes…



"Time"


         Settled in and comfortable, back to doing things like the old days. Got writers block sort of but at least you have my Tweets once and a while.. Don't know if I like this new page but I'll give it a try.. Weird stuff going on in this world of ours.. I don't know what to think.. Thank God I'm at the age where I know I won't have to deal with the future they are going to have.. I mean I'm going to be around for a while longer but I don't think its going to be a nice place in 50 or so years.. However, I was thinking that the earth has been here for millions of years its going to be here for a while longer good or bad..  I like the way things were, not where they are going.. This internet has given us more knowledge than we need. Things are happening too much to fast. The kids with those hand held computers and phones. Crime and violence everywhere, its really sad. I have no solution's or ways around these things. Just sadness and a constant question...  Why?

"HISTORY LESSON"


STUPID IS AS STUPID DOES
Facts are Facts
So if you are offended - blame History!

A HISTORY LESSON WE SHOULD NEVER FORGET!!!
Eighty Four Percent of those who receive this
Email will not completely read it…
if they read any of it at all.

Ten Percent will read it,
but they will choose not to forward it on to others.

The remaining 6% most likely will forward it.
The War started in the 7th Century
and lasted through the 17th Century.

Many will contend it never stopped;
the Facts below are Historically correct.

That is why many of us Choke
when we hear someone say we will defeat
or contain these Islamic Terrorists in a few Years,
or even "30 Years" as has been stated by Leon Panetta.

If the latest batch of Murders,
Beheadings,
and Killing of Innocent Christians has at all shocked you,
it is time for you to read this Compilation
of Historical Facts about the Intense Hatred
that Muslims have for ANY and ALL who are “NOT” Muslims!

WE ARE THE STUPID

In 732 A.D.,
the Muslim Army,
which was moving on Paris,
was Defeated and turned back at Tours, France,
by Charles Martell.

In 1571 A.D.,
the Muslim Army/Navy was defeated by the Italians
and Austrians as they tried to cross the
Mediterranean to Attack Southern Europe
in the Battle of Lepanto.

In 1683 A.D.,
the Turkish Muslim Army,
Attacking Eastern Europe,
was finally Defeated in the Battle of Vienna
by German and Polish Christian Armies.
[these are just a few of the offensive attacks by Muslims during the crusades]

This Nonsense has been going on for 1,400 years!
The SAD thing is that more than half of all Politicians
do not even know any of this.

If these Battles had not been Won,
we would most likely be speaking Arabic.
And Christianity could be Non-existent.
Judaism certainly would NOT exist!

Reality check:
A lot of Americans have become so Insulated
from Reality that they Imagine America
can Suffer defeat without any Inconvenience to themselves.

Think back:
The following events are true historical facts.
It has been many years since 1968,
but History keeps repeating itself.

1. In 1968,
Robert Kennedy was Shot
and Killed by a Muslim Male.

2. In 1972,
at the Munich Olympics,
Israeli Athletes were Kidnapped
and Massacred by Muslim Males.

3. In 1972,
a Pan Am 747 was Hijacked
and eventually Diverted to Cairo
where a Fuse was lit on Final Approach.
Shortly after Landing,
it was Blown up by Muslim Males.

4. In 1973,
a Pan Am 707 was Destroyed in Rome
With 33 People Killed,
when it was Attacked with Grenades by Muslim Males.

5. In 1979,
the United States Embassy in Iran
was taken over by Muslim Males.

6. During the 1980’s,
a number of Americans were Kidnapped
in Lebanon by Muslim Males.

7. In 1983,
the United States Marine Barracks
in Beirut was Blown up by Muslim Males.

8. In 1985,
the Cruise Ship Achille-Lauro was Hijacked,
and a 70-year-old American Passenger
was Murdered
and thrown Overboard in his Wheelchair by Muslim Males.

9. In 1985,
TWA Flight 847 was Hijacked at Athens,
and a United States Navy Diver,
who was trying to Rescue Passengers –
was murdered by Muslim Males.

10. In 1988,
Pan Am Flight 103 was bombed by Muslim Males.

11. In 1993,
the World Trade Center was Bombed
for the First Time by Muslim Males.

12. In 1998,
the United States Embassies
in Kenya and Tanzania were Bombed by Muslim Males.

13. On 09/11/01,
FOUR Airliners were Hijacked.
Two of the Planes were used as Missiles
to take down the World Trade Centers.
One Plane Crashed into the United States Pentagon,
and the other Plane was Diverted
and Crashed by the Passengers.
Thousands of People were Killed by Muslim Males.

14. In 2002,
the United States fought a War
in Afghanistan against Muslim Males.

15. In 2002,
reporter Daniel Pearl was Kidnapped and Beheaded by
you guessed it - a Muslim Male.
(Plus two other American Journalists
who had just recently been Beheaded.)

16. In 2013,
the Boston Marathon Bombing
resulted in Four Innocent People,
including a Child,
being Killed
and 264 other People injured by Muslim Males.

NO,
I really do not see a pattern here to Justify Profiling.
Do YOU?
So,
to ensure we Americans never Offend Anyone
- particularly Fanatics intent on Killing US
- Airport Security Screeners will NO longer
be allowed to Profile certain People.

So,
ask yourself:
"Just how Stupid are we?!?!"

Have Americans completely lost their Minds
or just their
"Power of Reason?"

As the writer of the Award Winning story
"Forrest Gump"
so aptly put it,
"Stupid is as Stupid does."

You now have the Opportunity to send this on
to other Email Contacts.
Please do that!
Or you can just sit back,
keep complaining and do nothing.

As Barack Obama said in his book:
"Nothing sounds as Beautiful
as the Muslim Evening Prayers from the Tower."

Wake up America!!!
