In Perfect Harmony

Maybe I am being too simple, but I believe there is a way to settle disputes over race, color, nationality, political beliefs, and what ever strikes one as necessary to live in this world. There is a TV program that I have been watching which is very amusing, exciting, and cathartic. The program is called BattleBots. Seemingly mild-mannered men and women of various ages, disciplines, and colors take extreme pleasure in designing robotic devices to pit against other robotic devices.  The teams line their bots up in a secure cage and when the light turns green they drive the bots remotely using radio control against one another. Axes spin, wheels turn, hammers pound, flippers upend opponents and make them fly, and pieces of bots scatter about the arena. It all ends when one of the bots is disabled and cannot operate.

Not a single bot is the same. just like a Nazi is different from a white supremacist, or a Ku Klux Klansman. The only similarities between bots is their desire to annihilate one another. The owners are two-faced. One face is the face of inventor, builder, and creative genius. The second face is that of warrior beat the hell out of your opponent battlebot driver.

What an amazing experience it would be to buy a ticket into the biggest stadium nearest home to watch gladiators from the Antifa movement fight to the death against someone from Black Lives Matter. Or even better yet, pit a White Supremacist against a Black Lives Matter agent. Only one would walk out of the caged arena to be named to the next rung of the competitive ladder. Eventually, we would see a clear winner emerge, bloodied, scarred, and limbs missing from the many bouts between enemies. At the end only one is declared a winner. The audience places a an olive wreath upon his head and sends him home to live another day. Because there is great depth in all of the various movements the arena will come to life again in a new war to declare the winner of stupid ideological beliefs.

We, on the other hand would be greatly entertained by watching these factions pulverize one another with a vengeance and meanness never before experienced in war.

Today, we read and watch various ideologues go at it in places like Charlottesville NC. They beat each other and even kill for the pure joy of defending their ideas hoping to win the rest of us over to their way. The most foolish of these are those who candidly destroy monuments of heroes who in the distant past fought for an ideology different from theirs. They mistakenly believe by doing so they will change the world to make it a better place. Erase history and all vestiges of slavery, and prejudice will disappear. Humanity will be saved, and we will all live in peace and sing the Coca Cola song I’d Like To Teach The World to Sing.

Instead we wile away hours on social media sites hoping to find the meaning of life. We wander aimlessly through life holding our phones before us with a finger on the video button, hoping to capture that glimpse of life that will go viral on YouTube and make us famous or rich. It is hard for me to imagine where our society is headed, and what good will evolve from our aimlessness. Instead, I try in my own way to serve the community in simple meaningful ways, one simple act of kindness at a time. Evolution took billions of years to get humanity to this point, and it may take another billion to get us through this current phase.

Today’s Senior Wisdom

05de5303c65033dd9710e6a8bd7c43bb--christmas-humor-merry-christmas
Lying around, pondering the problems of the world, I realized that, at my age, I don’t really give a rat’s ass anymore.
If walking is good for your health, the postman would be immortal.
A whale swims all day, only eats fish, and drinks water, but is still fat.
A rabbit runs, and hops, and only lives15 years, while a tortoise doesn’t run, and does mostly nothing, yet it lives for 150 years. And they tell us to exercise? I don’t think so.
Now that I’m older, here’s what I’ve discovered: 
1.  I started out with nothing, and I still have most of it.
2. My wild oats are mostly enjoyed with prunes and all-bran.
3. Funny, I don’t remember being absent-minded.
4. Funny, I don’t remember being absent-minded.
5. If all is not lost, then where the heck is it?
6. It was a whole lot easier to get older, than it was to get wiser.
7. Some days, you’re the top dog, some days you’re the hydrant.
8. I wish the buck really did stop here; I sure could use a few of them.
9. Kids in the back seat cause accidents.
10. Accidents in the back seat cause kids.
11. It is hard to make a comeback when you haven’t been anywhere.
12. The world only beats a path to your door when you’re in the bathroom.
13. If God wanted me to touch my toes, he’d have put them on my knees.
14. When I’m finally holding all the right cards, everyone wants to play chess.
15. It is not hard to meet expenses . . . They’re everywhere.
16. The only difference between a rut and a grave is the depth..
 
17. These days, I spend a lot of time thinking about the hereafter . . I go somewhere to get something, and then wonder what I’m “here after”.
18. Funny, I don’t remember being absent-minded.
19. It is a lot better to be seen than viewed.
20. Have I sent this message to you before…or did I get it from you?

Political Excrement

9be9b24678e451d4ee8c02be52451bbe--republican-presidents-the-republican.jpg

Senator Mitch McConnell is a stupid pile of political excrement. His comment about President Trump’s expectations being too high show that he has never worked a day in his life. If he had worked in business he would understand that bosses and entrepreneurs expect a lot from their employees. Their expectations are the blood of the business organization.

When I worked for a living I had a boss who owned the company, and his usual habit was to call me into the office in the morning, and hand me a 3 x 5 note with very brief line on it which only he could see was the idea that would become viral as a product. He gave me enough words to explain his line, and lucky for me I would understand it. By the time I got back to my office he was calling to ask what progress I made toward making his line become real. That is typical in the business world, but in the Senate and House or Representatives the only bosses are We the People, and we only get one vote every two, four, or six years to fire a guy who is a laggard. Mitch recently won his election in Kentucky, so he feels secure in sitting on his verbose ass.  I live in Illinois so I don’t get a chance to fire him. In my home state of Illinois, I’m sure Mitch is looked upon as one of the hardest working Senators in the USA. That isn’t saying much is it? Nor is it giving my own Senators any credit for doing anything except to become rich by feeding from the trough.

I think everyone who wants to hold office should have a successful business career first, the experience would give him a sense of urgency to get things done. So would a term limit.

Braggadocious Talk

 

3313730.jpgEvidently, North Korea has a remodeling plan for their capital city Pyongyang, and need the area cleared for the renewal. Their braggadocious talk about attacking the USA is intoxicating the leadership to the point of insanity. The USA, even under a liberal President like Obama, would react accordingly if the North Koreans were to attack a US territory. I remind my liberal friends that President Truman, the first US President to unleash atomic power on an enemy was a liberal.

The President’s job is to protect the citizens of the United States. When the Muslims attacked us on 9/11 President Bush reacted by attacking the Taliban in Afghanistan, which led to Iraq, and a lot of dead muslims. The North Koreans will not be treated any differently. Perhaps Kim Jong Un has seen the movie “The Mouse That Roared” too often, and he believes his declaration of war on the USA will result in his failure. The loss would bring the North Koreans foreign aid from America to rebuild their devastated country. This is typical liberal thinking, and it will backfire in a big way. Rebuilding Pyongyang will take more money than Americans are willing to donate. Not to mention replacing all the North Koreans who would die in the process. Kim needs to back down his rhetoric in order to make headway with the world.

This Girl Is A Hoot

shoot-like-a-girl-cover-promo.jpg

I just completed reading Shoot Like A Girl, by Mary Jennings Hegar. I love stories about people who live their dreams. This is the second one that I have read, and they are similar.  What I admire most is that when a person really believes in something there is nothing on this planet that will prevent them from accomplishing their goal. Shoot Like A Girl is such a story. Mary Jennings or MJ as she refers to herself throughout the story saw herself as a pilot when she was eight years old. She never let go of that dream. She finally made it in her mid-twenties. In between, she prepared herself in every way she knew how. She had to be the best in school, she had to learn math and science, she had to prepare herself physically. She did that by being good at sports. Along the way she decided that one route to becoming a pilot was to join the Air Force. She learned to shoot and became an expert marksman. Later when she was in the service one of her instructors told her that girls can shoot very well. There is something about feminine physical stature that gives them balance, and the ability to breathe easily and relaxed. There are many women who are snipers.

During MJ’s course through the Air Force she experienced male discrimination. She not only fought against it, but demanded equality. The discrimination never ended, but by the end of her career she earned respect by her valor proving she could equal any male warrior.

The first few chapters of her story seem to be somewhat hum-drum, but as she progresses through the service her story becomes more exciting. When I read Space Man by Astronaut Mike Massimino I found his journey to be similar, always studying, always following orders, always picking himself up after disappointments, but never, never giving up.

MJ’s valorous actions as a pilot in Afghanistan cost her pain and discomfort, but she didn’t let it slow her down. She finally left her service job and took up the cause of women in the services. She successfully caused our government to rescind policy preventing women from fighting alongside men in shooting wars.

 

Super Teacher

This message is a doozie, but it strikes to the heart of a problem, i.e. political correctness .
images-27.jpeg
After being interviewed by the school administration, the prospective teacher said:
Let me see if I’ve got this right.
You want me to go into that room with all those kids, correct their disruptive behavior, observe them for signs of abuse, monitor their dress habits,   censor their T-shirt messages and instill in them a love for learning.
You want me to check their backpacks for weapons, wage war on drugs and sexually transmitted diseases, and raise their sense of self-esteem and personal pride.
You want me to teach them patriotism and good citizenship, sportsmanship and fair play, and how to register to vote, balance a check book, and apply for a job.
You want me to check their heads for lice, recognize signs of antisocial behavior, and ensure that they all pass their final exams.
You also want me to provide them with an equal education regardless of their handicap and communicate regularly with their parents in English, Arabic or any other language, by letter, telephone, newsletter, and report card
You want me to do all this with a piece of chalk, a blackboard, a bulletin board, a few books, a big smile, and a starting salary that qualifies me for “New Start.”
You want me to do all this, and then you tell me……
I CAN’T wear a necklace with a little cross,  mention God, or say “Merry Christmas”  because someone might take offense? “
Well, you know what you can do with your job……..
We all should have the same rights, whatever your religion.
This should be posted in every school in America and all countries.
Think about it!
If Muslims can pray anywhere, why are Christians banned from praying in public and from erecting religious displays on their holy days?
What happened to our National Day of Prayer?
Muslims are allowed to block off major streets, in all American States and pray in the middle of the street! And it’s a monthly ritual!

Tell me, again, whose country is this?

Remember When?

clinton-hillary-russia-uranium-FACEBOOK.jpg
Remember when Donald Trump formed a business partnership with the Russian government and his company got $53 million from the Russian government investment fund called Rusnano …..that was started by Vladimir Putin and is referred to as “Putin’s Child?”
           Oh wait, that wasn’t Trump; it was John Podesta.
Remember when Donald Trump received $500,000 for a speech in Moscow that was paid for by Renaissance Capital, a company tied to Russian Intelligence Agencies?
             Oh wait, that was Bill Clinton.
Remember when Donald Trump approved the sale of 20% of U.S. uranium to the Russians while he was Secretary of State giving control of it to Rosatom, the Russian State Atomic Energy Corporation?
            Oh wait, that was Hillary Clinton.
hqdefault-6.jpg
Remember when Donald Trump lied about that and said he wasn’t a part of approving a deal that gave the Russians 1/5 of our uranium, but then his e-mails were leaked showing he did lie about it?
          Oh wait, that was Hillary Clinton and John Podesta.
Remember when Donald Trump got $145 million from shareholders of the uranium company sold to the Russians?
          Oh wait, that was Hillary Clinton and the Clinton
Foundation.
Remember when Donald Trump accepted millions in donations from Russian oligarchs like the chairman of a company that is part of the Russian Nuclear Research Cluster;  the wife of the mayor of Moscow and a close pal of Putin’s?
          Oh wait, that was the Clinton Foundation.
Remember when Donald Trump failed to disclose all those donations before becoming the Secretary of State, and it was only found out when a journalist went through Canadian tax records?
          Oh wait, that was Hillary Clinton.
Remember when Donald Trump told Mitt Romney that the ‘ “The Cold War is over?”
           Oh wait, that was President Obama.
Man, Trump’s ties to Russia are REALLY “disgusting!”

The Dangers of Allah

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.
