A Good Day to Die?


Occasionally I entertain the thought that it is a good time to be over sixty years old. The parallels between the condition of America and Ancient Rome become too vivid. It seems the America I was raised in is disappearing before my eyes and my cynical, (heartbroken) response is that it is a good time to die. Both me and the republic can watch the sun set on the dream of America in better times. The dream is America, the great experiment in self-rule. As the work-ethic dies and adulthood is shunned, as a gimme-gimmie culture overwhelms the traditional courage that making your mark in the world requires  will fade away. Hopefully before too much more damage is done to this good place, I will fade with the last light of an American day.


A picture of me, in darker moments.









Donald Trump, Now POTUS stood against  democrats, independents, socialists, and anarchists. Many in his party (GOP) shunned him.

Then this man takes the stage. And like the cavalry arriving in the nick of time, he has breathed life into breast of the American dream. He entered a capital, rife with good ol’ boyism, and backroom deals. He said he was going to “drain the swamp.”

The average American was being taught that you don’t have to work, you don’t have to be committed to any person, place, belief or loyalty past that which serves selfish needs. The economy is tanked and the average young American has learned to live on less and lose themselves in a jungle of electronic dependencies on countless screens on phones computers and T.V.s.

The economy was stagnant and pushed further underwater by disastrous Liberal spending. Pockets of poverty formed like quagmires of violence and hopelessness in most major cities. The family, under assault since the great society was foisted upon America, was deteriorating. Men were marginalized and women were busy “finding themselves”.

Trump stood with his face defiantly to the wind. The mainstream media despised Trump and biased (negative) reporting reached 90 percentile in negative coverage of Trump. He was crude in speech and was not elquant by any means. This author initialy hated his hillbilly mannerisms and crude speech.

With all the Hollywood beauties, the mainstream media, and the rich limosine liberals after him, with not a chance to win. He won.

So as far as that it’s a good time to die thinking……well, I think I want to stick around a while longer. GO bless you President Trump. Thank you for saving America…from herself.



Pop! Goes the Weasel !



I like Seals music. He has a voice like an angel and a presence that fills the stage completely. I am less sold on Oprah. Now that I have been made  more aware of her knowledge of Weinstein’s palavering with young , old, and all that lies between. I am peeved.

Chummy: Oprah and Harvey Weinstein at the 19th Annual Critics' Choice Movie Awards at Barker Hangar on January, 2014 in Santa Monica, CaliforniaOprah has always represented the “In” crowed that excluded me and those of my ilk, (my ilk was poverty, and the wrong side of the tracks). The hubris and hypocrisy of the limousine-libs that always take the  posture that will serve there need for approval while condescending all to others to oblivion.it is the amazing capacity of the human to remain safely ensconced in his own shell while others are suffering all around. While Oprah is trading face paint with Weinstein in the above pik, thousands of the a third world, (woman’s 3rd world), traded as cattle, raped at will, sold and physically muillated in the most intimate way. In the most brutal manner imaginable; wait for sensitivity to turn into courage. They wait to be rescued.


 I have five daughter’s now, and much grey hair peppered in my old brown locks. I fear for their wellbeing. Not the color of dress the celebs choose to wear to the Grammys  because of Weinstiens wanger wranglin’. 

Every bodies going to wear a black dress. Everybodies going to write a confessional, everyone will feel exonerated. If I am lucky my wandering child will have a safe place to lay her head. I miss her so. So the limo libs drive by in silent cars, we see bits of their faces in the tinted windows, and they will look valiantly forward as they feel so much the hero for having cut a donation check or delivered a lecture  for an overinflated fee.

What is a micro-aggression?

But distance, to a limo-libber is the saving grace.  Yes it’s true that whenever one of the rich and famous gets an urge to eat Chinese they can just jump of one of their planes and pop over to Hong Kong for a bite. If they want some real privacy they just buy an island.

But what will mute the caterwauling about the fate of the lefts genitalia? What will happen to their ever important quest for marriage between entities naturaly ill-matched for mating! (You know, marriage between a human and a house plant. Will the screams of thousands of children and young teens experiencing genital mutilation  be heard over the whining for the 15  dollar minimum wage to flip burgers?

In the real world the taste of reality is in the air. Cancer has visited this house. Another child, 25 years old has come up missing and I am on oxygen.

By the way, does “fuck off!” fit the mold for micro aggression?


Some good will be done. Some waste will happen,….. but the perversities of the “privileged few” will go on. HO HUM………………..bug?



Hadrian’s Curse Exorcised


The ghost of Emperor Hadrian, sits in the shadows and laughs as the world struggles with the conundrum  he has left to us. During the Roman occupation of Israel he decreed that the area would be called Palestine, after the enemy of Israel, the Philistines, who vanished from history 600 years earlier.   The Jews are the only unified people who have laid claim to Israel from a thousand years before Hadrian’s decree, and for two thousand years since.  This guy……Donald Trump has verbally declared recognition of the disputed Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and the relocation of our Embassy from Tel-Aviv to Jerusalem. This move got cat-calls from most leaders in the middle east. In its typical peace-loving and cosmopolitan manner the response was a call to arms by the Palestinian authority for  “3 days of rage”. Wooo! We are all so surprised!  It is a gutsy move on Trumps part but  this  move has been promised by every president for several administrations.  Trump has had the audacity to do what no one else has…he has done what he said he would do.

This good. Thank you for supporting the only democracy in the mid-east; Mr. President!






On one of my many visits to Palmer high School to deal with the antics of one of my sociopathic daughters I spotted a rather tall thin woman approaching the waiting room She was an awkward and gangly figure, with thin legs and bony knees. She was wearing a kind of retro-floral loung- lizard dress and what was a hideously quaffd blond B-52.

Well, you guessed it. He was a she…. he/she was called Buzz by the students and evidently worked hard for the moniker by hi/her  wanton fraternization with the students in pot smoked nooks and crannies all over Colorado Springs..

Trump recently banned (delayed) admission of transgender folks in the military.

I can imagine “Buzz” Running over the bodies and carnage of all sorts in his white (cute open toes and strap}, toward the ramparts, his wig askew and falling over from the vicissitudes of war. With a cut e little tear up the thigh of his floral print to show off the stringy sinew of his thighs. . He could wear grenades as ear rings and several poison bobby pins for the last true measure of fashion courage. ..






Touted as an enemy of Muslims by the perpetually hostile mainstream press and  accompanying chorus of braying liberal enemies, the  president was treated with a triumph that rivals those afforded the royalty of ancient Rome.

Saudi horsemen, some brandishing the American Flag, flank President Trumps motorcade upon his arrival in Riyadh Arabia. On the first stop of his first foreign trip as POTUS, President Trump was treated with a day of extraordinary pageantry and ceremony.










Melania Trump, sans head covering, carried herself with a  faultless regal bearing .


Egyptian president Al Si-Si tells Trump that he “can do the impossible.”

POTUS at the western wall in Jerusalem Israel

Trumps next stop, Israel, afforded a more humble a greeting but Trump and B.B. Netanyahu  have been close friends for a quite a while.   His next hit is Rome and a meeting with the Pope.  In his trifecta of the Abrahamic religions, thus far, his trip has been a raging success. His predecessor, in abandoning Iraq, supporting the Muslim Brotherhood in Egyptian internal politics, and subsidizing Iranian interests to the tune of 400 billion dollars as well as his policy of non-interference in withdrawing from the middle east  has left a region (that has always been problematic) in flames.  The reaction of all parties, from Riyadh to Tel Aviv, has been a sigh of relief that  America is back to lead them from the fray. We are back.






Fake News? Me? The NEW YORK TIMES?


IMAGINE LIVING LIFE AS ……….”Wild Bill” Hickok’s son….waiting for some kid looking for a reputation as a bad ass by shooting Wild Bills son. And you can’t hit the broad side of a barn in a shoot-out. Kind of a nervous life if you ask me.

Well I don’t think the editors of the New York Times are living up to the standards of the “Grey Lady” of past years. The main stream news has been so politisized for so long your millinial reporters, reared on the “free range” chicken shit  of the political left, have no idea of the ethics of their own profession.




 Nearly 70 million of Americans are on food stamps or some other form of government assistance. MMMMMM-Boy lets have another run at socialism! Lets hire Hillary to help continue and expand the “heist and spend” fiscal binge this country has become addicted to.

I hear the young, (at least they are sexually mature),  adults who backed the loser in Tuesdays election and I am embarrassed. These people are bawling like babies. They are holding their breath till they turn blue and they are refusing to eat their veggies!



It’s Looking a Little Cloudy….


…in the sky above Donald Trumps campaign,The poll numbers are harbingers of doom for the Republic. The decline of this once great country will be sealed should this bombastic Trump fellow fail to take the presidency. I would have preferred someone with a bit more gravitas than he, but he had the right ideas. I will vote for Trump. If Machiavelli had written a sequel to “The Prince” it would be called the “Princess” and it would have a pic of Hillary Rodham Clinton on the cover. What mistakes Trump will make will be in the range of “new man error”.  Her deliberate actions, aimed at the heart of this capitalistic country, and the traditions of individualism, may spell the end of the American dream.
