IT’S THE STRANGEST THING

January 15th, 2018

That little arts and crafts shop I opened. Things are happening I never would have guessed at.

I’ve always been an adventurer, going places that others fear or avoid out of reasonable caution. Something always seems to drive me to go see, or go do. Opening a store in our little struggling town is one of these. Part of me strove against the idea and I had to quell a lot of uncertainty about it even as I was determined to do it.

Not that opening the store is any great achievement, it’s not. But it was going to take a real bite out of my savings with no guarantee that it would succeed, that’s what created all the doubt. Many of the businesses out here have failed and shut down, people here are poor and there just isn’t much money.

Strange things are happening because of that store, not just in my life but in the lives of others. People come in and just want to talk to me. I don’t know why, it’s really weird. An old guy with a truly bizarre past, Russ, and who tells me all about his past, has decided that I’m his best friend and he comes in and tells me about all his adventures in life. Today he was there and a little boy came in with ten dollars in bills and change, in an envelope, and wanted to buy one of the $10 airplane models he’d heard about, and this old guy pulled out a credit card and bought him the most expensive model I had in the shop. The boy looked like a really deserving kid, skinny, bright eyed and poor and not a trace of meanness in his face, just eagerness. Russ and I both saw it. That boy’s life was changed a little for the better today, and maybe Russ’s was, too. He did a good deed and was the happier for it.

Russ left and shortly, a young lady and her mother came in. I know the young lady, and heard only a few days ago that the young man she lived with drowned in a river boating accident last Friday. She came in to see me because, it seems anyway, she wanted to be with me in her time of grief. I had no idea she felt that close to me, tho we have become friends and I’ve tried to help her. She has emotional problems.

She came with her mother, who waited out at her car while her daughter and I talked, and she seemed to be doing better when they left. Soon after that, another couple came in just to check out what I might have new, a very tall and large woman and her husband, a very small dwarf. I think they just wanted to visit, they’re into UV resin crafting, and good at it, and she showed me some of her work this time.

That ended the day at the shop and left me feeling like I’d stepped through some sort of science fiction portal into a new reality. Can you, Dear Reader, see why? This is not how businesses are run. People come in and don’t want to engage anyone in deep and revealing conversations, they just want to pay for their purchase and leave. That’s how businesses are run. I don’t ask anyone any personal questions when they come in, they just start telling me things. Out of the blue.

I’m not stupid, I know it must be something about me that causes people to do this. Maybe it’s just the way I look, an old man with a beard. Maybe it’s the way I hold my face, who knows? But it’s good, this is a good thing, somehow opening that shop and just being there is helping people. Life sure is strange.

SHITHOLES REVISITED

January 13th, 2018

DC Clothesline, at www.dcclothesline.com, an online publication I’ve found to be a very factual and reliable, non-spin news source, has this to report about the “shithole countries” comment that Pres. Trump is denying having said:

“The reason the remark became public in the first place is because Senator Dick Durbin, a Democrat representing Illinois came out of the meeting stating that president Trump referred to African nations as shitholes. Since Durbin is a great proponent of illegal immigration in general and part of the Washington resistance against Trump, he would have everything to gain in making the President appear to be racist against people from certain countries.”

This is far more believable than that Pres. Trump would make such a comment in the presence of Democrats known to be hostile toward him.

I would make a wager that Pres. Trump will never invite Sen. Dick (The Prick) Durbin back into the White House again, for a conference or for anything else.

SHITHOLE COUNTRIES, SHITHOLE PEOPLE

January 11th, 2018

Our Great President Donald Trump today angered every dishonest person in not just America, but in all the Shithole Countries of the world by asking out loud “Why do we want all these people from Africa here? They’re shithole countries … We should have more people from Norway.”

He’s right, of course. Most African nations are shithole countries and always will be, because they’re run by Negroes. Negroes are not good at governing, they’re violent people who are easily corrupted by greed and their governments are always falling prey to dictators. Their governments have always been tribal and still are. The same is true for Middle Eastern nations and Central and South American nations. Greed, violence and corruption are the rule because none of them had the benefit of European dominance in the forming of their governments. They were all tribes that were subjugated out of greed.

That could be said about America too, except that the European settlers had to fight the European government that ruled them, and in doing so, set a higher standard. It helps that the American Constitution is directly founded on the Iroquois Confederacy of Nations. The Native Americans were far ahead of those settlers from England politically, and it was they who are mostly responsible for the democratic form of government we have.

The plain fact is that the United States of America has the best form of government of any nation on Earth and that government was created and enforced by highly intelligent Native Americans and white people. People just as susceptible to greed and corruption as anyone else but held in check by their own severely enforced system of laws. Even at that, America has suffered severe erosion of the high ideals that founded the nation, and is now riddled with corruption, and when you put that fact up against the state of other nation’s pathetic moral standings, the true overall condition of the human race is suddenly revealed.

Humanity is sinking into a stinking quagmire of corrupt governance worldwide. Most nations are, in fact, Shithole Countries, and their people are, in fact, really bad people. As bad as things have become here in America, they’re still better than most everywhere else and keeping everyone else OUT is exactly what we need to do.

THE DAILY BLATHER

January 11th, 2018

Reading the hype and tripe this morning, I see that the Libturds are desperately hoping that Pres. Trump0 will agree to be harassed under oath by Dickhead Mueller, the “Russian Collusion” investigator for the Democrats. Any decent attorney would advise any client NOT to agree to testify, and Pres. Trump has the right to refuse, same as anyone else does. My money says he will refuse, and since this likely request from Mueller means that Mueller has gone as far as he can with this fiasco and the only thing left is to try to get Pres. Trump to say something stupid, if Pres. Trump won’t testify then that ends it.

They can wring their hands and wail about how he’s afraid of the truth and so on, and try to make a big deal out of it, but that’s too bad. If Pres. Trump actually did testify, he’d just be adding more fuel to this dying fire and it would run on for another year.

Julian Assange of Wikileaks fame may finally be leaving the Ecuadorian Embassy in London. The British have dropped all charges against him and now protect him under their freedom of speech laws, the Swedes have dropped those bogus rape charges and Pres. Trump has pushed for him to be protected under our freedom of speech laws. So Ecuador has made him a citizen and issued him a passport, and he may soon be a free man again. I’m for it. The info he released undoubtedly did some harm, but it also did a lot of good, and that’s not the point anyway. The point is that even though it was illegally obtained, he wasn’t the one who obtained it, he simply published it, and Freedom of Speech has to be protected.

“(San Francisco) A Project Veritas undercover investigation has revealed a senior network security engineer at Twitter stating that his company is “more than happy” to turn over the private communications and deleted tweets of President Donald Trump to the Department of Justice.” Twitter is a known Liberal social media company, as are the others, and why I avoid them all like the plague. Here’s one more example:
“Facebook is developing a ‘Portal’ gadget which will let it put microphones and cameras in people’s homes. The device will feature a 15inch screen, a wide-angle camera with facial recognition and microphones to allow voice control. It’s expected to use facial recognition to allow people to log into their accounts without having to type in passwords and will be dedicated to video chat.”

The problem is that these huge companies are mostly owned by individuals who are themselves Liberals, Democrats, Socialists, Communists or Globalists, or a combination thereof. and they pose a greater threat to world peace than idiots like Kim Jong Un. And as for our Department of Justice, I hope Pres. Trump has managed to remove the Democrats at the top and replaced them with decent Conservatives by now, because otherwise they’re going to be the next big problem for him and America’s recovery.

OPRAH? YOU MUST BE DAFT!

January 8th, 2018

Oprah Winfrey has announced that she intends to run for President in 2020. Oprah is a black TV talk show host who’s made a fortune from investing in various television enterprises, and now says she intends to run for President of the United States.

I haven’t seen her on TV in a few years, and before, she was pretty dark skinned. Well, she must have been having Michael Jackson’s dermatologist working overtime, because she’s damn near white now. For a racist black woman, it should have made anyone wonder why she was making herself look white, and now the reason has become obvious, she’s been planning for quite awhile to run for President.

Now, isn’t that exactly what we need? Another racist black socialist who wants to suppress our police forces, dump a huge guilt load on white people for being white, and give free crap to blacks while doing everything possible to return our economy to the pit that Barack Obama was pushing it into?

No, actually, it’s not, and she doesn’t have a snowball’s chance in Hell of getting elected. After Obama, there’s no chance of another black person becoming President for another 100 years. He did more to destroy the peaceful race relations we’d managed to achieve than the Ku Klux Klan ever did, and with all the hate he’s stirred up, mostly in blacks against white people, the anti-black voting backlash will last for at least another generation.

Oprah Winfrey is a Black Racist, White-Hating Monster. Like Obama, she has the gift of gab, but as a president she’d be just as much a disaster as he was.

BIRTHDAY BOY

January 6th, 2018

Happy birthday to me, happy birthday to me, happy birthday happy birthday happy birthday to me. And many moooooore.

Yup. another one today.

CAN IT BE RACIAL AWARENESS?

January 6th, 2018

I know personally, and it’s been demonstrated times beyond count in our history, that some of us sometimes get glimpses of coming events. Many people have had feelings of foreboding that kept them from boarding doomed airplane flights, just for one example.

This morning I came across an article in DC Clothesline by a mathematician who claims that we’re “soon”, by the year 2100 or so, to experience the beginning of a sixth Mass Extinction phase.

There may be such a thing as a Universal Consciousness, or at least a racial consciousness, and I’m wondering if this could be behind our apparent plunge as a species into an increasingly total disregard for our safety and future, as a race and as individuals.

Nuclear weapons are steadily proliferating in spite of treaties and -supposed- efforts to prevent this. In my previous post I rant away about the changes happening that are making things worse instead of better, and I can’t help wondering if the way we’re trashing our world, overpopulating, using drugs, all of the anger and hate and insanity, isn’t because we know deep down that it’s all coming to an end soon anyway.

If not, then what’s wrong with us? This is not the world I was born into. People have always done good things and bad things, and there’s always been a certain amount of craziness, but when I was a boy no one was afraid to walk alone on the street at night, and I lived in a big city. Now no one with any sense would do that.

Do we know something as a species?

EVERYTHING MOVES

January 5th, 2018

One of my grandmother’s favorite sayings is that “The only thing that’s constant is change”. Which is another way of saying that nothing ever stays the same, things will always change. It’s true, too.

In 1950 the population of the USA was about 150 million and that of Earth, 2.5 billion. Or so. If you check the figures today, the USA population is 323 million, or just over twice what it was 67 years ago, but the Earth’s population is 7.5 BILLION now. At the same time, the population of every city in America has increased by an average factor of 5 times, if you believe the posted numbers, which I don’t. It looks like a lot more than that.

If those numbers are true, though, then our actual population has to be at least 5 times 150 million, or 750 million people, and that looks about right. Not 323 million as we’re told. That’s reasonable, since many millions of Mexicans, Central and South Americans have flooded in here along with unknown millions of people from the Near and Far East and Europe, particularly Eastern Europe. Considering that Earth’s population has tripled, and so many people have poured into our nation, I’m betting that a US population figure of 750 million is much more accurate.

So? I’m pointing this out to explain why there’s so much discord in the US now. The more you jam people together, the more they seek to escape, and if there’s no room to, no way to escape the rest of us, then people turn to sex, drugs, dangerous sports, violent crime, pretty much any activity that ignores personal safety and the rules of normal behavior in society. Many states are legalizing marijuana now, and this is only going to make everything worse.

If the stuff is illegal even though the penalties are not too harsh, its smokers will tend to avoid frequent use, and use itself won’t proliferate because of the social and legal stigmas and penalties. But when it’s openly accepted by everyone, then everyone will use it including very young children and the entire society suffers. Children can’t be expected to act like children if they’re high on pot or any other drug. Plus the competition in the market for stronger and stronger pot just screws up peoples heads even worse.

I smoked pot as a teenager and it wasn’t nearly as potent as what’s grown now. The pot now must be 50 times more potent in effect, and I can see how it’s harming people’s psyches.

But that’s just pot. Everything is going to extremes. A guy goes up in a balloon wearing a space suit and jumps out at the edge of space, to fall 50 miles before opening his parachute. People wear wing suits and jump off cliffs and tall buildings and recently some guy strapped himself into a mini-jet airplane no bigger than him and zipped around the sky. All these people could have easily died doing this stuff, and everyone adored them for being so foolhardy.

Someone in Texas shoots lots of people at a concert, Muslims over in France do it too, and the only reason the attacks stopped in England is because the Brits caved in to the terrorists demands and gave away their nation to them.

The rant goes on ad infinitum, so what am I saying here? That unrest and overpopulation are a part of each other, and you should expect it to keep getting worse as more people fill up less and less space. Eventually there will be another mass extinction visited on Earth from space, which will solve the human problem for awhile.
But, only for awhile. Everything moves and all populations are like waves, that rise and fall.

WINNING

January 5th, 2018

It just keeps on getting better and better. Our unemployment is down, the economy is rising fast, our taxes have been reduced, regulations reduced, businesses are returning from overseas. And now this:

“An Islamic State group offshoot in Egypt has officially declared war on Gaza-based Palestinian terror group Hamas, releasing a 22-minute video purporting to show the execution of an alleged collaborator.

“Never surrender to them. Use explosives, silenced pistols, and sticky bombs. Bomb their courts and their security locations, for these are the pillars of tyranny that prop up its throne,” a knife-wielding man says in the video released Wednesday, according to the SITE Intelligence Group, which tracks extremist websites.”

You goddam right, you insane fuckers, you go kill each other, atta boys, good job, hooray for you. Let the slaughter begin, ISIS assholes killing Hamas assholes, Hamas assholes killing ISIS assholes. Talk about WINNING. It doesn’t get much more fun to watch than this.

ON THE SECOND DAY OF NEW YEARS, MY TRUE LOVE SENT TO ME…

January 2nd, 2018

Yup, Christmas has melted into New Years and the New Year has been celebrated all across the various lands that celebrate New Years on Jan. 1st, and thus we forge bravely ahead into the unknown abyss of Time that we now call 2018. Time marches on and carries us with it whether we want to go or not, and then only the lucky ones. Many of us failed to make it this far along.

Ever wonder what Time is? It’s like a stomach ache when you get the flu. It’s merely a symptom of something called Motion. Einstein figured this out, that the faster you go, the slower time goes, and when you reach the Universal Constant Speed or whatever you want to call it, Time stops. Most people call that Universal Constant Speed the Speed of Light. It seems to be the limit to how fast things can move in our Universe, and in fact, most everything does move at that speed or very close to it. Electrons zipping around their atomic cores, moving as electricity, passing through empty space, along with heat waves, magnetic waves and pretty much every other form of energy that doesn’t require some form of mass as a medium of travel, like sound.

So if you could get into a spaceship and travel at the Universal Constant speed, not one second of Time would ever pass for you as long as you stayed at that speed. Of course, you would be about as cognizant of existence as a rock is, but you’d live forever. If you wanted to maybe not live forever, you’d have to slow down to a point where your brain functioned again and awareness returned, and that’s where it gets interesting.

Exactly how fast can we go and still be aware of ourselves and our surroundings? Even though our thinking would be slowed with increased speed, at what speed should we stop accelerating if we want to continue to think at all?

I know how important these questions are to all you thousands of loyal readers out there, which is why I ask them, of course. While you’re deeply pondering these mysteries, I still want you to pay attention to where you’re walking and not get yourself lost in an intellectual fog and WATCH OUT FOR THAT TRUCK!!! Ooops. Oh crap…

MY NEW YEAR’S RESOLUTIONS

December 29th, 2017

It’s a custom in Western societies, some of them anyway, like ours, to resolve to do better or to change some aspect of our behavior and/or our lives, on the first day of the New Year. Generally, we declare these resolutions in advance of New Year’s Day and hold off on actually implementing them until The Day arrives.

So in the spirit of all this, these are my New Year’s Resolutions:
1:
2:
3:

And in order to keep these resolutions I will do my very best not to change one single goddam thing about myself. It’s taken me an entire lifetime to become the cranky, foul-mouthed bastard that I am, and I like what I’ve achieved a lot. A lot of others don’t, but that’s their problem. If they don’t like the way I am, then stay the hell away from me and be happy.

I don’t allow myself to be anyone’s victim, and it’s a good thing too, because the older I get, the more a lot of people see me as victim fodder, and the more surprised they are when that doesn’t work out very well for them. It has nothing to do with me and everything to do with the concept of age and seeing old age as weakness. It is weakness to a certain point, of course it is, but a wrinkled face doesn’t necessarily mean a frightened mind. I like that line in Dune, where Paul Atreides says “Fear is the mind-killer”. It is. I do feel fear like all of us, but I learned long ago to ignore it and look away from it in my mind, to push it away immediately and keep my focus clear. Fear inhibits action.

What I still have not yet learned to control so readily is anger. I can lose myself not just to anger but to real rage fairly easily, when I might be better off not doing so. It always seems to work out well for me afterward, but at the time I’m raging away, I’m also always holding the reins on it and never letting it go too far… which may be why it tends to end well for me. Sometimes you just have to show some people in the rawest way possible that they’ve really pissed you off, to get them to back off. Fortunately this is a very rare event. 99.9% of the time I get along great with everybody, and I have to admit, life is more fun that way.

So yeah, New Year’s resolutions are for those who are still working on being the person they want to be. Nothing wrong with that, in fact it’s a good idea. Most of us could use some improvements in ourselves.

So, HAPPY NEW YEAR, all you thousands of loyal readers. Resolve to be happy for the whole year.

ON THIS FRABJOUS DAY AFTER CHRISTMAS…

December 26th, 2017

This morning I went to our local post office to drop off a couple packages and to discuss the fact of 8 pieces of missing mail/merchandise that I’d paid for that never arrived. One of them I actually hadn’t paid for, it was a new credit card that never showed up, that I’d put charges on, online, and couldn’t pay those charges without knowing the card number and sec. number in order to log on. So late fees accumulated.

On that issue, I contacted the card company and explained that it never showed, they checked and fortunately it had never been activated and used by whoever got it. So they canceled the card and the late fees and have sent another card, yet to arrive.

For the other 7 items, 5 were from China and are lost forever, 1 is being replaced by the seller and the last one had tracking and shows as having been delivered… to someone.

Ennyhoo… I spoke with the postmaster about this, who immediately became irate with me, expounding repeatedly and loudly that They Have Never Had A Single Complaint Before In All The Years Blah Blah Blah, as if I were somehow a culprit instead of the victim. Fucking asshole! Since there’s only one person who delivers that mail, I suggested that he might be the problem and was instantly informed that he was back there listening and what about him? So I simply said that he owed me a tidy sum of $$$, which he does, and left to the sound of the postmaster complaining that he was going to write up a report on all this and he’d never had to write up a report before and BLAH BLAH BLAH.

He must have had a little talk with the route courier because that jerk showed up at my door with my mail in hand, looking very angry, and told me that he’d have my money by next Friday. So I opened the screen door, took my mail from him and said “Thank you” and he walked away.

Two things here. If he got into trouble over all this, he brought it all on himself and he needs to direct that anger accordingly. The other is that he did lose mail and/or misdirect it, because about the same time mine disappeared, he delivered 2 letters to me that were not mine and one even went to a different street entirely.

Running a business is enough trouble without the mailman losing your inventory and giving other people your credit cards, and postmasters need to keep their concerns focused on their customers and not whether one of their screwups is going to make them look bad.

After leaving there this morning I found myself once again wishing I had a button I could push that would instantly wipe out the vast majority of humanity. Christmas never really got started for me this year and it’s definitely over, I can tell.

POPE SUCKS JESUS’S DICK FOR CHRISTMAS

December 25th, 2017

Picture of the Pope sucking baby Jesus's dick.

Any questions?

I HAD A DREAM JUST NOW

December 23rd, 2017

I did, I took a late afternoon nap and before waking up just now, I was dreaming that Europe was saving itself from the horde of migrants that are destroying their entire way of life along with their economy.

In my dream, many of the people had risen up and started attacking and killing the migrants in their camps and as they moved in crowds along the roads, by ambushing them from hidden places and shooting them with arrows and anything else they had. Even, in my dream, lobbing mortars into crowds of them and killing many of them.

All this time, the message was going out to them, “Get out of France, get out of Europe, go back home.” They were told that no one would be killed who was heading back the way they came, and before long, first France and then the rest of Europe was free of these people. And then I woke up.

I’ve no idea at all what prompted my brain to come up with that. I wasn’t thinking about anything like that when I fell asleep. I don’t really wish for a slaughter of people, most of whom are just seeking a better chance in life, but I do wish that the good, average citizens of Europe, who are oppressed by their Globalist leaders, would rise up and take their countries back.

My Christmas wish for them is that they expel both their leaders and the migrants and re-create the democracies some of them used to have and that they all should have.

That’s the great thing about wishes, we can wish for anything even when we know that some of them or even all of them will never come true. It’s like having your own personal star in the sky.

OH! AM I ON FIRE?

December 20th, 2017

There is a banner I put put in front of my shop, by the street, every morning. It says “CRAFTS” in great big yellow letters, on a very bright red background that’s over 2 feet wide. The banner is 12 FEET TALL. It gets attention.

The banner flies alongside a large sign mounted on a steel pole, that says
ART
CRAFT
&
HOBBY
SUPPLIES

in Bright Red letters on a white background. You can’t miss it.

In the front window of my shop hangs a 7-foot long, 2 foot wide sign with Bright Orange letters on a very brightly colored background, that says CREATIVE CRAFTS. The entire sign has a trim of bright, flashing LEDs around it’s edge.

SO. This morning a young lady with a little blonde-haired boy was going back to her car, which she’d parked directly in front of my store, in order to go to a shop 4 doors down. Her little boy ran into the open door of my store so she went in after him to get him back, and the first thing she said when she went inside was to exclaim “OH, IT’S A CRAFT STORE”. Jesus goddam christ. No shit, lady.

‘TIS THE SEASON TO BE JOWLY

December 15th, 2017

Ride that reindeer

Ho ho etc. Merry Christmas and stuff. I just got through chasing 3 tramps off the front porch of the house across the street, who were sitting at the little table set out there by the owners and having a fine time laughing and joking, right up until I shone a flashlight in their eyes and told them that they should leave before the sheriff gets there, because I’m about to call him.

I walked away and when I looked back they were hightailing it down the road. The last thing we need in this neighborhood is to allow these bums to take over someone’s unoccupied home and start stealing everything in the neighborhood to sell for food, because otherwise that’s what would happen.

Earlier, at the shop, I saw a couple of these scum pull the damaged flag holder out of the ground in front of my landlord’s antique store, and ran out and took it back from them. These sons of bitches take anything they can get their hands on. I said it was damaged because some other one of these assholes had stomped it until they’d bent it over flat to the ground.

There’s a goddam plague of homeless bums around here this winter. The local sheriff’s substation deputies did a sweep-out program last month, but the bastards are plainly back again. I wish Santa would take them all up in his sleigh to about 10,000 feet, and then shove them out. Ho ho ho.

If these people were truly victims of a bad economy and were honestly looking for work, that would be great, I’d sympathize and give them some help. But they’re not, they’re bad people and parasites who bring crime and harm, and my Christmas Wish is that they all get to spend this Christmas and the entire winter in some nice, warm, cozy jail, far away from here.

NO LONGER A MATTER OF CHOICE

December 10th, 2017

Because of the following report, it is no longer a matter of choice whether to leave N. Korea alone or not. Either China forces them to dismantle and abandon their nuclear and ICBM programs or we have to attack them and do it for them. There’s no other choice.

Getting China to do this will require the Chinese to understand that if they don’t it will bring disaster down upon them. Short of that threat, they will continue to aid and abet the efforts of N. Korea to destroy us. Why? Because they’re the ones who promote this and want the N. Koreans to succeed, in their plan to conquer the world. Sounds a little farfetched? It’s not.

The report I’ve linked to was written by two members of the former congressional EMP commission – Dr. William R. Graham and Dr. Peter Vincent Pry. Dr. Graham is a physicist who was a science advisor to President Reagan and administrated NASA. Dr. Pry is a former CIA officer responsible for analyzing Soviet and Russian nuclear strategy, who has served on numerous congressional boards related to security. They clearly state that one hydrogen bomb exploded from a great height in the right place would knock out almost all of our electrical and electronic infrastructure and cause the ultimate deaths of as many as 90% of all Americans.

They’ve advised President Trump of this danger, which is exactly why he’s working so hard to get Chinese cooperation to end the threat. Since the Chinese are loathe to do this and extremely unlikely to do so even under the most dire of threats – because they’ve been planning this for so many decades – we will have to take on N. Korea by ourselves. I only hope that when we do, both the Chinese and Russians have the good sense to keep their armies on their side of the border, or things will go from very bad to terrible in a hurry.

MEET MY SON, KURDISTAN

December 8th, 2017

Went to the rock hound club meeting last night and there were some new faces there, people who’d come in to check it out, and among them was a forty-ish couple with a teenage daughter. Very pretty young girl with a very direct stare, which I found a little disconcerting, but otherwise she seemed to be a nice young lady.

What I want to know is WHY are some parents so stupid as to give their children names that are burdens? The mother wore a rather booze-damaged looking face, so maybe the use of alcohol and drugs had something to do with her naming that young lady ALASKA.

When that girl said her name was Alaska I had to severely stifle myself, as a horde of jokes and puns immediately entered my mind, such as Baked Alaska, and, What did you have against Nebraska? Any relation to Arkansas? And so on.

You don’t name your children after states or countries. I’ve always thought that Paris Hilton was a really arrogant, stupid name that only a too-rich snob would ever give a child, but I guess any stoned idiot can name their child Afghanistan or Maylasia, you don’t have to be rich, just totally unconcerned about the lifelong burden you just placed on your newborn.

KEEPING PROMISES

December 5th, 2017

President Trump is keeping another promise he made America and our ally Israel by declaring Jerusalem to be the capitol of Israel and starting the process of moving our embassy there from Tel Aviv. In doing this, he’s telling not just the Arabs of the world but the entire world that the United States is an ally of Israel, and at least as strongly an ally to them as to any other nation. He’s putting the world on notice that a line has been drawn.

This is a special message to Islamists and Globalists, a statement that we side with Israel against them, and a particular message to the Saudis, that we are now putting Israel first before them. The ugly days of Obama’s embarrassing hatefulness toward Israel and Muslim favoritism are over.

Erdogan, the dictator of Turkey that those people so foolishly elected, stated today that “A red line has been crossed.” His red line, an Islamist red line, yes, and if any of them react by attacking Israel, they’ll suffer serious consequences as a result. We have an air base within Turkey’s Tikrit Air Base and we provide a lot of income to Turkey through that and other, regular commerce between our nations. That can end if Turkey crosses OUR Red Line.

Erdogan should be careful of what he says, Pres. Trump is known to retaliate against words as well as deeds. He’s not a good person to threaten.

For years the Muslims have been threatening that Holy Hell would break loose if the United States dared to declare Jerusalem the capitol of Israel. Well, now they can show us what they’ve got, and then we and the Israelis can go ahead and stomp them flat for it, and no one will be able to blame us for doing it. This is an open declaration of war against all enemies of Israel, by both of us together, Israel and the USA, and I couldn’t be happier about it. Donald Trump’s Presidency is better to me than the Second Coming of Christ.

THE SPARKELHARDT CONFARCTION, OR…

December 4th, 2017

What the hell did I just say? Dang, forgot again. Another brilliant outburst gone south. Or was that east?
Memory. It’s about memory. The older people get, the more noticeable it becomes that some of them don’t remember things well. There was an old gal in the shop the other day who couldn’t stop talking, nothing unusual in that since most women love the sound of their own voice, but this one kept stopping while she searched for particular words that she knew but just couldn’t squeeze out of the cortex and into the frontal lobes.

She referred to these blockages as “Senior Moments”, and in truth, I’ve been having them for quite awhile. My command of the English language would have failed me completely if it weren’t for typing away in this blog every so often, as I often get stuck for that exact word that describes my thought more than any other. For me that’s more because of my lack of interaction with other people than anything else. What you don’t use, you lose.

However, yesterday I was reminded that my memory can play other tricks on me, and it freaked me out. It very honestly did.
I was talking to a young lady whom I’d previously been comparing in my own mind to another young lady I know, for various non-sexual similar traits. That’s right, I’m not a dirty old man and shame on you for what we all know you were thinking. Anyway, while talking to her, I referred to something the other young lady and I had done as having done with this one, which confused her pretty thoroughly until it dawned on me what I’d done, and that she was not the one. Now, THAT was a Senior Moment. I was seriously embarrassed by that and more than a little upset with myself for doing it, since it frankly scared me pretty good because the idea of becoming senile is to me the worst thing that can happen short of being slowly flayed by a horde of sadistic lesbians.

After sleeping on it and getting some mental distance from my initial reaction, I realized that it was just part of my lifelong disconnect from humans. Being around other humans tends to be stressful for me. The shop works okay for me because there’s a counter between me and those who come in the door, to keep them from actual contact, and that way I can be nice and calm and assured while conversing. But when I’m face to face with many people, I find myself wishing I were alone in the woods or some such. Yesterday was one of those occasions, and now I realize that the reason I made such an odd error is simply because I was wishing I was in the company of the other person instead.

However, it is also symptom of aging. I would never have done that when I was younger. Mistake one person for another, yes, we all do at some time, but not with these two people who look nothing alike at all. So it’s back to taking my Vitamin B Complex once again, something I’d spaced out doing. The B vitamins keep the brain train on its tracks and there’s nothing like the good, hard slap of a Senior Moment for a reminder. I must remember to take my vitamins if I’m going to live as a genius forever like I intend.
