Themes, Topics, & Meandering Subjects As We Experience The Difficult Times Ahead
Commentary and opinion on Human Behavior, Society, Current Events, History, Science, Politics, Pandemics, growing older, wishing I were younger, defying the odds, defying authority, the strange mating practices of Liberals, mysterious medical maladies of Conservatives, and anything else that deserves my commentary and opinion… whether you have any interest in my random palaver or not.
I do NOT know where Jimmy Hoffa is buried so don’t even ask.
(Huh? Did I just hear someone out there ask, “Who the hell is Jimmy Hoffa?”)
My opinions are free and are worth every penny you are paying to be here. No refunds. Mask wearing is optional here, but please keep to social distancing (If you wear a mask it means you are one of “them”, if not wearing a mask then you are one of “those”). Oh, by the way, the usual random drug testing has been waived this month because the cup holder person we hired is under quarantine.
The significance of the rock face graphic in this header? A reminder in my own mind that my opinions should be carved in stone for the ages. (Just don’t take everything I say for granite.)
Today’s Pontificate – If you are any bit an American, today’s Capitol Hill assault has likely revealed an immense anger from within. It did me. But let’s not go all crazy here.
Today’s Pontificate – When you look at the above photo… the owner is doing a pandemically-inspired going out of business sale, yet he still needs customers to even do that much. With some businesses just closing up is only part of the problem. The other part is what to do with inventory and furnishings so you don’t have to pay for storage space.
Today’s Pontificate – In a competitive free market world that Darwin quote would read… “IT’S NOT THE LARGEST OF THE BUSINESSES THAT SURVIVE, NOT THE MOST SUCCESSFUL, BUT THE ONES MOST RESPONSIVE TO CHANGE.” The trick is predicting, preparing, anticipating, implementing, and adapting. But a disease? Whodathunk.
Today’s Pontificate – Lock & load! That title above raise an eyebrow? Remember my previous post about guys swimming naked as a phys-ed requirement in the Chicago Public Schools (HERE)? Here’s another culture shock absurdity (by our modern scruples) to dazzle the senses and leave you in wonderment and awe.
Today’s Pontificate – There’s a movement to do this, you ask? Rather than trying the impossible and changing the amendment… some states agreed to a kind of ‘end run’ to make the popular vote count… some time in the future.
Today’s Pontificate – It’s interesting that asking that question at all implies that conspiracies don’t exist. If that’s so, is that not itself a conspiracy? Oh, the paranoia!
Today’s Pontificate – Oh, you betcha, this is gonna be one of the craziest things you’ve heard of in a long time. But it’s true because I lived it… as did many others from back in the day. Submitted for your approval, a time long, long ago.. and not so far away. That signpost up ahead is your next stop…………
Today’s Pontificate – For years I have been kinda perplexed with this idea that the goal in life is the pursuit of “living the good life”. Usually it’s attached to some desire for retirement. I am not sure how that is defined, to be quite honest.
Today’s Pontificate – Well… expect sheer pandemonium . The wounded animal that is Trump hasn’t even let loose yet. Essentially, expect the unexpected, hold your breath.. and pray.
