Dems Want Statehood for District of Columbia

One of the current Democrat schemes to ensure Democrat majorities in perpetuity is to make DC a state with two new Democrat senators.  We know that DC is perpetually far left and will always vote socialist.

DC is the socialist foul stink hole of Washington.  How appropriate for Democrat prospects.

Another Muslim Mass Murder

Muslims committing mass murder in the United States is almost commonplace.  There was the Fort Hood massacre, the Orlando Pulse atrocity and the Boston Marathon terrorism.  This week another one occurred in Boulder, Colorado, where ten innocents were shot to death.

Democrats, who have their brains in backwards, generally react to Muslim atrocities by inviting more Muslims in.   And, of course, advocating repeal of the Second Amendment.  

The obvious solution always evades them:  ban Muslims, not guns.

Stoicism and Marcus Aurelius

Lately I have been drawn to the philosophy of Stoicism, as famously taught by the ancient Roman Emperor, Marcus Aurelius.  Stoicism teaches that it is not external events that make us unhappy, but our reaction to them.  You can avoid unnecessary, fruitless stress and worry over events and situations that are beyond your control, and achieve serenity in the process.  For example you can alleviate anguish over Biden’s destruction of the economy through a stoic response.  At times you must “trust the universe” to deal with such situations.

Of course you should do everything that is under your control to avoid unpleasant outcomes.  However, when the outcome is beyond your direct control, stressing over it has no purpose.  Accept it and move on.

Grief Takes Many Forms

For the past two years I have experienced my severest depression of all time, praying for my own death, beseeching my dead father to “come and get me.”  Today there was a slight break in the clouds and a small ray of sunshine came through.

I took a three hour nap and when I woke up I felt better.  Then I realized my death wish was simply borne of my grief for my two brothers who died in less than a year of each other.  Grief takes many forms and mine has resulted in a feeling that I want to join my brothers on the other side.

I’ll be with them in time.   No need to be impatient.  Meanwhile I need to seek a reason and a purpose for remaining in this realm, to be happy.  I’ll work on that.

A Yearning for the Past -- "No Not Much"

Yearning for a simpler and saner time.  When a 10 cent soda only cost a dime.

The Last Farewell - Lyrics - Roger Whittaker


One of  my favorite songs is "The Last Farewell" by Roger Whittaker.  It was popular in 1974 when I was separated from my sweetheart while living and working in Arizona.  The song reminded me of her.  I still love the song.  I came home and married the sweetheart.

Here it is.  Enjoy.

Secession and Historical Ignorance

There’s a YouTuber called Timcast who is generally conservative, but yesterday he really pissed me off.  He opined that secession of states is illegal and revealed some of the most ignorant and naive notions about the War of Northern Aggression, the kind of 3rd grade pap we were all taught in childhood.  Jeez, some people never learn.

Dr Seuss and Secession

Dr Seuss has now fallen prey to Cancel Culture madness, to political fanatics who see anything and everything as “raaacist.”  The insanity continues to worsen and we need to separate ourselves from it.

Speaking of separation, the subject of red state secession is being discussed more and more by conservatives and Republicans.  I fully support this remedy for healing the body politic.
