July 2018

or two

I was originally thinking this would be just a short facebook post – then ‘heard’, write a blog.  So here we go again – more thoughts from this perhaps senile mind.

So – let me get this straight:

“WE” can not afford medical care for the men and women who were willing to literally ‘lay down their life’ for our ‘flag’ and all it stands for. However – “WE” should withhold pay or even deport those who, in an attempt to bring awareness to the fact that there are people in this country who are acting in ways that are at best “disrespectful” of what the flag represents, and at worst harmful to their fellow citizens.  You know, those ‘brave’ people who have chosen to ‘respectfully’ kneel, with head bowed and hand over heart while listening to the National Anthem.  All they are trying to say is – please, get your head/eyes/attention out of your portfolio and take a look over here at what is happening ‘on the streets’!!

And while I’m on the subject of ‘money’ – have you ever thought what it might be like if you were the one deciding what your next pay increase would be? And – that you could choose to retire at any age and have very good benefits/income for the rest of your life??  For having done a job that was mostly about keeping your job and to hell with those who actually gave you the job!

And we wonder how we got into this mess – really?!???!!

I haven’t attempted to write anything for quite some time – couldn’t find a way to write what might be on my mind without adding to the negativity! 😦  Today, as usual, as I attempted to make some sense of what I was thinking, my mind wandered here:

It appears to me that this planet is one of two things:

1. It is the place where any other (saner) people send their crazy people!  You know, once they can find no other solution and are kind enough to not just lock them in some building/institution.

2. It is kindergarten for humans.  We are all in the 4-6 year old range ‘universally’ speaking.  Imagine – we are playing house, playing superman/woman and being bullies.  And in our childish hands we have weapons of mass destruction we can leash on anyone who takes our favorite toy!  Imagine – a bully with access to a red button that if pushed, could destroy life as we know it.

Now that’s something to keep me awake at night!!!
