Evidence what is that NON PC Rant

Riots really have zero to do with the alleged events that cause them. They are desperate acts by people with nothing left to lose. Riots are the criminal acts of unemployed desperate people. This wasn't about evidence as much as frustration with the Obama economy.

Repeating Nazi Crap

There is a clown who should stick to producing music and leave politics to those with a brain. A certain Pink Floyd clown has made a claim since his father died in WW2 he can't be anti semitic. Last we checked only Nazis advanced the cllaim that WW2 was a "Jewish War". Last we checked  the war between Nazi Germany and the UK  was a declared war.

Sorry , your fathers death does not provide cover for decades of baboonery.

Of course sticking with music never occurs to ego maniacs like Waters.

Here we go again with boorish far left arrogance

The far left likes to promote publicity nuts that confirm their stupidity. Classic examples of this are the Jersey Girls who claim ownership of 9-11. While we respect the sacrifice of their loved ones they weren't even there on 9-11. They don't speak for me and I had a front row seat. I don't claim to speak for anyone other than myself.

Our latest example is an outraged righteous gentile who has returned his medal for saving Jews from the Holocaust. While this man was once heroic, he fails to grasp that not all Nazis run around with Swastikas and idiotic salutes. It is quite obvious what Hamas has in store for Jews and one need not look any further than the videos of what this type do to non Muslims in Syria and Iraq. The medal recipient is all worked up about Israel as "Jewish State". Obviously he hasn't bothered to read demographics of every Arab State all with some type of theological law.

His niece married into a Gazan family. The family has suffered casualties. Has this person asked why these tragedies occurred. Hamas hides weapons and militants among civilians. Has this person asked about the child slave labor used to build the tunnels. Why weren't civilians using the tunnels as bomb shelters.

While we salute your act of courage seventy years ago it is obvious that you can not recognize genocidal lunatics when you see them. How many Judenfrei ethnically cleansed states are enough.

This is more moral rot from Europeans who think they are moral beacons, but are seriously deluded.

Rioting and Justice

There are plenty of wrongs ordinary citizens suffer each and every day. The answer to these wrongs is not to trash your locale and loot businesses. 

The riots have little to do with any specific act. They are caused by long term unemployment and criminal culture. Working people do not riot. The Obama administration has done everything in its power to exacerbate the unemployment problem. 

Of course when one gets a job it is usually part time with varying shifts courtesy of Obamacare. 

If there is desperation and hopelessness in the inner city it is caused by the clueless Obama administration not police brutality.

RIP Robin Williams

RIP Robin Williams and thanks for all of the laughs. One could read, in between the lines in the comedy,  a deeply troubled soul. Substance abuse and mental health issues do strike at those who would appear successful. Maybe one day we will treat substance abuse more decisively.

Thor's Hammer

I think of the lessons I inadvertently teach to my child and wonder if any of my message gets through. Much like a blacksmith forging a tool these lessons good and bad come from my example. How much these examples mean I don't know.

I took the time to spend with a lost old lady. I tried to explain the importance of kindness to the elderly and just spending some time with the lonely and the lost. Maybe it means nothing maybe my example sinks in. Maybe my appearance like the cavalry has meaning.

There comes a time where the lessons end and I contemplate. Did I set a good example for my daughter?
I could have done this or that better.

If my world ended tomorrow it is my days as dad that are my happiest thoughts.

A long life

I used to want to live a long life but to live when all of your  friends and peers are gone is no bargain. As my parents circle grows narrower each year I recall my grandmothers last years. Slowly the friends stopped calling as they were gone and the world narrowed. Going earlier at least some of your friends are there to memorialize you and talk about you from another perspective.

I think about my own life and how little my daughter knows because it only comes up in passing. She just found out what my middle initial stands for. My daughter will remember shared moments that will be priceless. Yet in many ways she knows little about me other than fleeting references to my summers in the mountain with Rusty the wonder dog who adored children and my time in VT. Her favorite story was when a crowd in Vermont talked me into wrestling at Franklin County Field days. I think the misadventures  of my friend Saul the ethically challenged pothead are up there. How I changed a thoroughly despicable friend into an icon of comedy is unknown. Yet the substance is largely true.

I still want my bones to rest in Guyana among my beloved adopted people in the forest.

Being a father and grandfather has been the best part of a full life. However, to see the world shrink is a pain worse than going and being just a foot note. I wonder if these words will read 200 years from now and viewed as the progression or retrogression in an ordinary life. In many ways this blog is a diary. How it is read is up to the reader.

I love my daughter, but will she even call me when I am doting along in plaid shorts about days past. I love the Maltese, but will likely outlive him. His heart is truly a wonder. I retreated to a strange part of the house to get some sleep. I woke up and he was cuddled next to me. He is the best friend a man ever had and I am lucky to have him in my life. I wanted a more functional dog and didn't play with him as a puppy. One day he was all over me playing and we are inseparable. Even his buddy Prince used to fight to spend time with me.

The new Pomeranian hates me and I don't put up with much. He growls and I ignore him until I am annoyed
then I assert my dominance by walking where I want. Usually the girlfriend gets involved and rescues him
and puts him in the corner. He has tried the cute bit but I walk away. I am not fooled by this act and spend my time with the Maltese.

An overdue post about a former pal who passed away

About a year and a half ago a blog friend passed away. Jams was a leftist, but the rare type who understood
that sometimes lefties go way overboard. He was not favorably disposed to Chavez and saw the obsession
with Israel and Jews as at times over the top.

This post is not about Jams the political person. This post is about the human face behind the words and things all of us go through. The subject does not have to be a decent lovable chap like Jams it could be anyone.

Jams found himself out of work through austerity. He was laid off from a government job through no fault of his own. He was middle age and it is very hard to find work at that age or reinvent yourself. I know the feeling because I had to do it in my 30's at or nearing 50 must be frightening. I recognized the depression and the inward doubts as only one who has been there could.

I want to direct this at younger readers. Being out of work is the most frightening humiliation known to us. The older you are when it happens the more frightening. When times are tough this is why seniority rules stink but are necessary.

Jams was a wonderful man who loved his cats and the not wife. His love of life, history and art show in his every word. Sometimes we would disagree sharply, but it was the respect of his humanity and basic decency that was at the center of our friendship. If he could send a message today it would likely be a humble reminder his modesty.

Please don't forget those around you that have fallen on hard times. Spend an afternoon with someone and bring the meal with you. Spend a few moments with that senior who lives in a changed area with no family or human contact. It might be a little bit of time but to those who are lost or depressed it could be a ray of warmth on a cold day.

I miss Jams, but his words are there for those to see.

RIP Jams ODonnel

Recovery what recovery

Things are pretty bleak at the girlfriends house. In spite of the tough times I pitched in and bought them a luxury item or two. I know how rough the economy is and a  good batch of shrimp goes a long way in that style of cooking as it is almost all rice and curry. I took my CD Player from the office and now there is music in the house.

Small things like buying food that is allegedly for me but I know I will never see make the day go by.

My dying city

One of the things one doesn't get until they are 40 is noticing how the world changes around them. Places that were part of your life for years vanish. Things from the past are gone and forgotten. I miss the big Hotel of the Catskills era, local stores and family friends that pass on.

I fell asleep so tired that I didn't make it to bed. I woke up next to the little Maltese. The girlfriend locked him in the large cage because friends were over. I said it was not needed and the dog would follow me. I went to sleep and he did follow me.

NYC needs new direction and De Blassio only has united everyone in saying he stinks.

Good Natured Jokes about crime

While working some files I came across a suspected gang member. What is this the gang has a better employment record than we do. They have a female CEO and multiple key members old enough to get social security. If they weren't criminal you might want to work there.

I asked the subject matter expert. What is with all of these people over 60. Doesn't this ruin the famous TV detective line when you join a gang there are two ways out jail or a bullet. Crime is bad enough but messing
with  our actuarial tables is unforgivable.

The subject matter expert says look at the degrees. Wow this guy is more educated than the lawyer who represents him. He probably does administration.

Actually the Jerry Jones jokes are not good nurtured.

Now you know how the head coach kept his job.
Not everything in Texas is big
Jerry Jones scores more than his team.
The things people will do for a parking pass are amazing.

A Shop Vac

Every home owner should own a shop vac. I arrived home somewhat upset because my pet looks like he is nearing the end. 35 years is not a bad run for a pet. I arrived home to find the basement flooded. Apparently the boiler broke and I closed the valve and shut it down. I didn't make much progress mopping so I purchased a shop vac. Once or twice a year the tree outside blocks the drain and it is a chore. I powered up the shop vac and eliminated the water fast three huge buckets worth.

Obama weakening Jewish support of Democrats

While Jewish people including myself are socially liberal the hostility towards Israel, Jews and boneheaded economic policies become a tad much. Obama and the Democratic Party cater to the University, Media elite and do not grasp the damage being done. There is just so much damage control  Schumer can perform daily as Clueless Obama  and Gomer Kerry draw legitimate concerns.

On the local level even tired deranged lefties like De Blassio grasp that there are limits to Jewish support.
