Amazing Adventure

mqdefault-2.jpg

One of many items on my bucket list is to read the biographies of all the Presidents. So far I have read about twenty. The book I just completed is a piece of the life of Theodore Roosevelt. Imagine living a life so rich in accomplishment that a major adventure fills a book and is just a small part of one’s life.

Teddy Roosevelt had just lost the election to become President of the USA for a third term. He tried what is today described as a losing affair. Teddy formed a third-party he called the Bull Moose party to run against Woodrow Wilson a democrat who today is by some considered to be one of the greatest presidents that we ever had. Others, like myself consider him to be the father of American Progressivism, or Socialism. Nevertheless, Roosevelt lost big. In his recovery from the loss, he was talked into making a speaking tour of South America. To make a dull trip more exciting he chose to add an adventure to his itinerary. A friend talked him into an exploration of a little known river in Brazil. The friend imagined the tour to be an easy down river float with all the comforts of home, including chef cooked meals of extraordinary cuisine, and fine wines. Roosevelt’s biggest mistake was to trust the friend to plan and outfit the excursion.

While in South America giving speeches, he met a man known for exploring the Brazilian rain forests. The man, Cândido Mariano da Silva Rondon, suggested to Roosevelt that his expedition explore a totally unknown one thousand mile long tributary of the Amazon called the River of Doubt. The adventure would allow Rondon to put this river on the map. The idea appealed to Roosevelt and the whole trip changed in character.

Author Candice Millard crafted an extraordinary narrative from details recorded by members of the expedition. The story keeps the reader interested throughout. This story would make an excellent adventure movie, but it is too big to tell, and was made into a series.

She picks up, the man looks over at her and listens.

She is speaking in a cheery voice, “Hi, I’m so glad you called. Really? That’s wonderful.
I’m so happy for you. That sounds terrific. Great! Thanks. Okay. Bye.”

She hangs up, and the man asks, “Who was that?” “Oh, she replies, “that was my

husband telling me about the great time he’s having on his golf trip with you.”

One More Off the Bucket List

northern_mockingbird_4.jpg

Some days things go right. Last week I toured the shelves of the library to find a new read. Usually, I find a shiny new cover which speaks to me. On this day a dull old cover jumped off the shelf and said “take me.” I was almost embarrassed to check it out. My guess is that when I finally tell you what the book is you will think, “how the heck have you gone so long without ever reading this most recommended story.” I’ve seen it on every recommended book list that my seven grandchildren have brought home from school. The only excuse I have is that To Kill A Mockingbird was published four years after I graduated from high school.

After reading the story non-stop I wholly agree with every high school teacher in the country that this book is a must read for kids. First, because it is about kids, second, it is about prejudice, and third, it is historical because the story takes place in 1930’s Alabama. I am pleased to report that America has changed dramatically since that time period, thank God. I am sure that the black American population will argue that America is still highly prejudiced, but I would hope they would also agree that we are nowhere near the level of prejudice we were eighty-seven years ago.

I would argue that prejudice in America is at a tipping point. What I mean is that there is a prevalent prejudice of whites. The government has passed so many laws and acts to curb prejudice and to equalize rights that it is now in favor of blacks. How on earth could the term white privilege have been invented? Whites in America are so racked with guilt over our historical past that they are self-immolating amongst themselves. On the other side, blacks are so inspired by their new-found rights they are over indulging. The Black Lives Matter Movement is certainly a hint that the direction of black superiority has inculcated to the extent that they believe it is okay to kill white police officers without any plausibility or due process.  How is it different when a black sneaks up on a police car to shoot the officer within than a bunch of white sheeted coward terrorists hang a black man from a tree.

It might be a good idea if all men white, red, black, and yellow read To Kill A Mockingbird and decide for themselves if our society has progressed toward the better.

“Shoot all the bluejays you want, if you can hit ’em, but remember it’s a sin to kill a mockingbird.”

I Get No Respect

Ask anyone in America why our kids are so screwed up, and they might say because they have no respect for their elders. They are coddled, and spoiled by too many over generous relatives, and a society that has worked overtime to create a perfect world.

What we fail to understand is that Utopia is an old idea which has maintained its desirability. We just don’t accept the fact that building Utopia is impossible. Looking into the mirror we see that our kids are obviously spoiled brats. Their only desire in life is to sit in a safe space with a smart phone in hand, or a video game player. Ask them what they want to be when they grow up, and you get a blank stare. That is one reason the Affordable Care Act is so expensive, it allows a kid to stay on his parent’s insurance plan until he is twenty-six years old. It doesn’t make sense to me at all because we urge them to vote by the time they are eighteen, and to join the military when they are eighteen, but they can’t find a job to get their own health insurance until they are twenty-six.

I love to listen to old guys tell me their life stories, and I have always admired those of them who left home at age eleven to become independent. My own father and mother  left their homes at age sixteen to migrate to a better life. When I see a sixteen year old today, I see a toddler who must still be left in a playpen to stay safe.

The video below depicts a real life story of a youngster from another country where parents still have control of their kids and the kids still respect their elders.

Creatures to Replace Humans

It won’t be long before these creatures will be wearing skirts and dating our sons.

Dogs will become obsolete since this dude will retrieve the newspaper in any weather.

Order takers at Mc Donald’s will be programmed to stand behind the cash register, and to take orders 24/7 without pay, insurance, or vacation benefits. Think of all the people who will become free to find real fifteen dollar an hour jobs. Then again, maybe those same people would be in line with these creatures competing for the same jobs.

Enterprising people will own many of these, and rent them to McDonald’s for fourteen bucks an hour while they remain at home playing virtual reality games.

The Chicago Bears would buy eleven of them to field an unbeatable team.

Grumpa Joe’s Place would buy one to write blog pieces that go viral every time.

The End of May Humor

A fifteen-year-old Amish boy and his father were in a mall for the first time. They were amazed by almost everything they saw, but especially by two shiny silver walls that could move apart and then slide back together again.

Thelift.jpg
The boy asked, ‘What is this Father?’

The father (never having seen an elevator) responded, ‘Son, I have never seen anything like this in my life, I don’t know what it is.’

Thelift.jpg
While the boy and his father were watching with amazement, a fat old lady in a wheelchair moved up to the moving walls and pressed a button.

Thelift.jpg
The walls opened, and the lady rolled between them into a small room.
The walls closed and the boy and his father watched the small numbers above the walls light up sequentially.

They continued to watch until it reached the last number and then the numbers began to light in the reverse order.

Finally, the walls opened up again and a gorgeous 24-year-old blond stepped out

Thelift.jpg
The father, not taking his eyes off the young woman, said quietly to his son….. ‘Go get your Mother’

Lies, Lies, Lies

he-who-permits-himself-to-tell-a-lie-once-thomas-jefferson.jpg

In following politics I have a problem with how people from both sides use the word lie to push their agenda. To me it signals that the American public reacts to liars. We don’t like them. Consequently, we like to dub politicians as liars. The problem I have with this phenomenon is that most of the time when I hear about someone telling a lie it is far from the truth. Because of this I hold the person telling us someone is a liar as the liar.

Politicians make promises to get votes. Some of them are telling outright lies with no intention of keeping those promises after elected. Many others make the promises and set goals to achieve them, but do not succeed. For example, Trump campaigned on the promise that the first thing he would do is to repeal and replace Obama Care. When sworn in, and actually seeing the agenda before him he was most likely overwhelmed. Repealing Obama Care was not the number one thing on his agenda for a couple of reasons. One of them being that he couldn’t do the repeal, it is the job of Congress to repeal laws. That took the promise out of his control. Yet, I have some dingbat liberal friends who call him a liar because he didn’t repeal and replace. It took him a few weeks longer to make it happen, but he is branded forever as a liar because he didn’t deliver exactly as promised.

I can make a list of promises made, and then failed that are fueling the liar myth, but I won’t bore you with it, I think my analogy above makes my point. The problem is that making a big deal about these situations stamps the title of “LIAR” across a person’s forehead, and liar is one trait that liberals love to use as much as the word racist. I had a talk with a forty something young man recently who I know voted for Trump. He was beginning to question Trump’s veracity as leader. I asked him why, and he stated that he was concerned that Trump lies a lot. That is why I have stopped watching network news and cable news. The fair and balanced channel is also guilty of promoting the lie word. The media war against Trump is having an effect on the gullible.

I totally support Trump’s battle against the fake news media. Yes, the news has a First Amendment right to write what it likes, but it puts a huge onus on We the People to separate the truth from the real lies. The moral of this story is don’t believe everything you hear from the media sources, the pundits, or the opposing politicians without first researching the truth.

Confused about Islam, Muslims, Taqiyya, Kitman, The Islamic State, and Sharia? I've spent 14 years studying these confused beings.  They are not at all what they want us to believe, especially those who are ruled by al Qaeda , ISIS and the Muslim Brotherhood as well as those who commit overt and covert Jihad while practicing Sharia tortures upon women

“ The limitation of riots, moral questions aside, is that they cannot win and their participants know it. Hence, rioting is not revolutionary but reactionary because it invites defeat. It involves an emotional catharsis, but it must be followed by a sense of futility. ” ~ Martin Luther King, Jr.
