Poll Dancing

Poll Dancing
What a set of gams!Spinning around that poll.The phones ring asking you for your opinion.Asking you in a computer voice to hold, a dancer will be with you shortly.You hear accented voices in the background.A guy asks you which dancer you are voting for. What characteristics do you admire?Why give this information to this stranger? How do you know if there is bias in this pollster? The questions seem so stupid. This is not science. It’s dancing words all going into a fake poll product that someone is paying millions for. How do you know it is true? Who are the people passing on participating? How do you quantify them?It is the Washington DC political shell game. Accusation and proclamation ba...

Unfriended

Unfriended
Yesterday I was unfriended by someone I didn’t know.Or it could have been a person I thought was a friend.How can you ever tell what someone really thinks about you?To many it is to have as many friends on the internet as possible.One’s friend criteria is not the same as someone else’s. And friends can hurt you more than non-friends. Maybe we should post our requirements for being a friend? But that could be embarrassing or hurt someone’s feelings. Life today is all about not hurting feelings. You don’t hurt mine, I don’t hurt yours. But then how can you make any decisions before knowing the other person’s feelings? Something to think about…. Just sayin’….. Confusing to me.Walking in the woo...

Databaseless

Database in the cloud
Marooned in a database for life.Parts of me spread throughout cyberspace. I want them back.Life was good when nobody knew anything about me…They couldn’t Google my name before they met me. They couldn’t look at my Facebook history and make assumptions.I want my privacy back. I am not a terrorist.I am a nobody of bits in a computer cloud. My opinions are deduced from data. I am polled without a say.I used to go out and play, but time is so precious as laptop and phone devour my day. I am too reachable by digital distraction that the kayak no longer gets wet. Sports are on big TVs with the refrigerator close by.There are commercials for everything I want. How did they know that? Who are the “t...

Artificial Intelligence

Artificial Intelligence
Now your car can park itself.Are we supposed to give it some rights as it now has a brain?Feelings?Artificial intelligence is being integrated into almost everything we have. Just wait and see.Cognitive computing.All human opinion is now suspect…. And subject to computer cognitive evaluation. Huuhh??Hey… we need to build a wall between us and ‘dem computers.Roombas that protect us will be everywhere. Would you believe there are over 100 models as we speak?What the heck is intelligence? I think it is about knowing the difference between right and wrong…. Good and EVIL. We are no longer able to distinguish between the two.It is not politically correct to judge evil as the perpetrators have the...

Leaky Leaks

Leaky Leaks
How did leaks become so polarizingly political so fast?All it used to mean was that you were going to take one.And when you got real old it became the new normal. At least they have product to control it…Today everybody is leaking. But the worst leakers are the press. MY gosh do they love going around sniffing for leaks. You know, that certain odor… LOLThey are adding leakinals to our bathrooms. Where leaks can be collected. Simultaneously catching DNA along the way for the NSA. “To leak or not to leak” is now the question. Kinda Shakespearean???Of course we are finding that there are fake leaks. I don’t know what that means….You can leak red and you can leak blue depending on your state.Unk...

Without

Without
Times have really changed.There is so much more now that one can’t live without.If you had x-ray vision and could see behind garage doors you would be hard put to find a car.100 years ago you did not know what you were missing. We know… LOLMaybe each of us can find out who we are if we list what we can’t live without???Money, house, car, big screen TV, internet, cell phone, friends, travel, good food, love, beer… go ahead add to your list until you know it is complete…. It may end up seeming fun, but probably shallow…All our lives we are searching for something elusive…. We don’t tell anyone as it is very private and there is no one to share your deepest doubts with. Who you can really, real...

The Bottle

The Bottle
Everyone carries the bottle these days.  It has even become a fashion accessory to be seen with and adorned.  Holders and hangers abound with designs and personalization.Yes, the plastic water bottle has over-arrived.  It represents purity, which we aren’t, and health, which we don’t have..  For if we were we wouldn’t be listening to every product ad that promises a better life through purchasing filtered purities.   It is amazing all humanity has not already become extinct.  Only to be saved by plastic.  Yippee!!We have entered serious times.  No, not those defined by cruelty and nuclear proliferation, but by global warming.  One way or another we are done.20,000 feet down in the Ryuku tren...

Deaf Hearings


He’s testifying!! Shhh…They are going to ask him so many questions. It will take hours. Agendas all over the place. Friends, enemies, observers with extensive portfolios of bias. The points are so fine that everybody is invisibly bleeding from the pricks…. “I repeat”… dithers one Senator. Serious faces inferring serious consequences.The trick is to put fingers in your ears so you hear nothing. You just feel whatever is there. Anyway, we all know that these days feelings are more important than words.Actually, no sound should be transmitted of the “hearings”. Get it?? Just look at the faces and you can figure it all out. In 2 months, it will all end in one sentence. The public verdict.Dependi...

Carbon Dating

Carbon Dating
I think dating is a regenerative dance.A lot of eyes never stop dating regardless of age…..Carbons date too.  In a different way.They help us determine how old something is.But only back 50,000 years.That is a long time ago… way before there were any religions and way before we were capable understanding anything.We do know that earth is 4.5 billion years old.  Nothing makes sense.Evolution or creation?I think each of us must do a lot of thinking about this.  I have learned that Faith inspires so much good…. and doing good is a blast.  Miracles are seen with the heart…  All of life seems to be miraculous and beautiful.  Amazing.When we are dating, we create a lot of CO2… chasing each other a...

None Of This

None Of This
“I will have none of this”….My mother once said to me.Maybe it was when I said my first bad word. I think she used this expression more than once over the years.I think parents are saying this less these days for fear of being reported on …. LOL.I think it happens in public schools. Teachers can be reported on by students…. What insanity….Even our nation and politicians have had to compromise when someone else comes on strong. Wiggle room is necessary to avoid decisiveness.If we don’t learn how to say no again, then we continue down the slippery slope of indecision and eradicate all traditional values.To make “none of this” have meaning action must be more than a speech.Recently our Secretar...

Con Science

Con Science
Right or wrong… I’m just doing it! And some impulse says you are right and you leap into the moment… into danger. Outcomes uncertain… You “just do it”.Remorse maybe… later… but not to act means you might own guilt…..We have glorified “conscience” as an explanation of moral urge. Someplace deep inside, some small voice, hints at what is right and what is wrong…It’s always been there, even as a child, but only as developed as the child. Then even as an adult depending on your growth. I like what is right and don’t like what is wrong. Good and bad. This heartfelt compass offers advice even when not asked.These days morality gets a bum rap as it is labelled judgmental.But one cannot shake one’s ...

Global Felony

Global Felony
Usually punishable by imprisonment for more than one year or by death.Every state has their own take on what is a felony with a judge determining the severity of the punishment.Real punishment gives the word “felony” meaning. A felony is a serious crime.The problem is that evil actually exists. I contend that it is a felony to not admit the existence of evil. If evil exists then it must be confronted. Anything that is not good is probably evil… not bad… but evil.Crimes against humanity are infinite… child abuse, women’s abuse, torture, poverty, lying, drugs, hunger, and on and on and on. This is EVIL. Not social conditions. Where are the protesters??Our world is boiling with slaughter and in...

Sophisticated Arrogance

Sophisticated Arrogance
Hallowed be thy network.May thy editor’s will be done.Make the truth be obscure so it will be a hell of a lot more fun… For some….Reputations dangle in the wind. As the ignorant and biased laugh and laugh and diminish their worth.Sadly taking us all down with them.Everything is fake except death.Remember the Lone Ranger? Where is he when we need him? Can’t he just jump off the comic book page and ride into Washington and defend the drainers of the swamp??Reporters used to be like priests. They used to be beyond reproach. Seekers of the Truth. Exposers of injustice. One couldn’t wait to read the newspaper front page to know that brave good men are subduing evil. That the milk was being delive...

Global Cooling

Global Cooling
I like it cold rather than hot.I worry about global cooling.It is going to preserve us all in ice… Cities and nations in the deep freeze. Immobile and unable to fight any more. As relationships between nations chill, big wars appear more imminent.Nuclear war in North Korea seems to be a reasonable conclusion. The people there are cold already from deprivation and diminishment. Their hell is cold…. no Hope, no Truth. Nuclear war leaves nothing behind but eternal cold after enormous heat. Sad.Global warming is not the threat. We are.We are not protesting the evil of terrorism and abuse.Controlling carbon emissions is sound behavior and important. But there are priorities when you lift your hea...

Memorial Day

Memorial Day
Our flag flies at half mast.Our flag.The flag of the United States of America.Our flag allows us to debate, criticize, and protest as much as we want without fear of persecution.It is amazing how much we love to criticize. Media and social networks are ablaze with condemnation. Oh yes, there are stories of good works…. but those headlines are stolen by scandal and criticism, however intellectually cloaked.Freedom of speech is the greatest threat to freedom throughout the world. What we take for granted is feared elsewhere. We are under attack by radical this and that because freedom of speech will destroy their power. Terrorism is applied to those willing to speak. Sad.Graves freshly dug and...

Church State

Church State
Churches are becoming labelled in our educational system as not politically correct… aka evil.Churches are where people congregate to learn about morals, morality, sin, forgiveness, and love… and Truth.But don’t be seen going into one these days. And definitely not if there are any cameras around. Maybe all Christians should wear body cameras like the police? Then we can catch them in the act of spreading their fake stuff.I guess this gets the Middle-Eastern religions off the hook because we would not want to offend them by mandating body cameras on them. For all they do is good and sensitive acts.So what is a church state?Maybe we should have just one state for Christians like Montana. It c...

Enough

Enough
Yes Dear, you have told me that 5 times.Enough.Politicians say the same thing in 20 different ways into 20 different cameras. They just change their ties once in a while.Reporters report on their same questions ad nauseam. No longer do they say “sir” before they ask a question…. And why does their question take 2 minutes to ask in 10 different ways? They are not reporting, they are just repeating the obvious. And why is their “opinion” more expert than the expert’s? Enough.Enough with no respect.Enough with over explaining.Enough with robo-voice prompts that do nothing but shield the company from live interaction.Enough with looking the other way to drug abuse… to child abuse… to women’s abu...

You’re Fired

You're Fired
“You’re fired!”…..I have heard that several times…And guess what…It was always for the best.Thousands of CEO’s and thousands of maintenance men have been fired for all kinds of reasons…. Many unfair… many because of political whispers from the insecure… get it?What is all the fuss?Come on… it will be replaced by the next crisis that is not a crisis…Aren’t soldier’s sacrifices more newsworthy?Where is all the uproar about child abuse?? Single parent families?The abuse of women in many other cultures is ignored. Let’s fire some of those leaders.Getting fired hurts the pride…. But men get on with getting on…Getting fired should get one fired up!Point your gun to the heavens and get fired Up.###...

My Terms

My Terms
I am going to do everything you ask as long as it is on my terms.I am going to give you money as long as it is on my terms.I am going to give you hope as long as it is on my terms.The problem is that we all want everything on our own terms. With the onset of social media, texting, skype, tweeting, facebook… we all can be friends with people who agree with us. So we build up an ego reinforcing PAC… Personal Admiration Committee that insures we are never wrong.Our country has never been more divided and it is its own fault. Everybody is right. Everyone is yelling. Faces look red and veins blue.In the end one person gets to call the shots. Or maybe one congress if it can unite and rule…..Do we ...

Widowmaker

Widowmaker
Something hasn’t been right for a while.A gnawing feeling of mortality.And then I was on a Caribbean beach every day.Walking from the water 15 yards on soft sand I could barely make it to the chair. A dizziness?? Ignored it. It’s been going on for a good while. Flew home and was given a “procedure” to install my 4th stent in a new dedicated operating room right out of a science fiction movie. A monitor, 4 feet by 5 feet, was positioned just inches from me where my doctor focused his skills. It led him to my “Widowmaker” Artery. Google it.This is the arterial junction between the right and the left main heart arteries. I had 80% Blockage. Heart attack territory.The right and the left arteries...
