YES – Paul Krugman is a Bonafide Moron

While gold slowly moved higher, and the cryptocurrency world careened all over the place, the media decided to focus on the potty mouth of a woman playing a game of which nobody cares, a talk show host nobody watches, and a story in the USA Today about, “Some US women taking their reproductive matters into their own hands. They’re ordering abortion pills by mail.”

So, so close, yet so far away.

Maybe try a condom, or a patch, or something called outercourse, (back in the day I think that was called second base, maybe third) or a wide variety of options available in Yahoo Search under BIRTH CONTROL, or I don’t know maybe try, off the top of my head, taking reproductive matters into your own hands and ordering pills to KEEP YOU FROM GETTING PREGNANT.

I digress.

The media didn’t bother with the reported 15000 Mexican troops supposedly hanging out on our Southern Border with orders to NOT stop illegals from crossing into the United States.

This sentence poses questions and contradictions.

If they aren’t stopping the illegals then why are they there, followed by the surreal statement that Mexico actually has an Army?

When did this happen and what exactly have they been doing since 1848?

What’s that?

They work for the Cartels?

That’s right.

Army must mean Cartel in La Raza.

They are now at our Southern Border to ensure the drugs GET through.

Ain’t NAFTA grand?

What’s that again?

We don’t have NAFTA anymore?

Sure we do.

Trust me when I say nothing has changed. The drug smugglers and human traffickers are continuing to flood our country with both, courtesy of the Liberal Pelosi/Cortez Democrats and the RINO Chamber of Commerce Republicans.

President Trump is doing his best but each morning he must feel like Bill Murray looking for Andie MacDowell.

Speaking of Bill, William Bagpipes Barr has replaced the jaundiced Jeffrey Beauregard Sessions.

Looks like we are getting one blowhard after a mother.

Where are you Waldo?

How long can it possibly take to indict someone who committed multiple felonies, admitted to the acts, apologized for the acts, and then took the 5th in front of Congress?

Her name Willie, is Lerner, Lois Lerner.

Maybe you’ve heard of her.

Barry Soetoro has.

That’s Obama, Billy boy in case you haven’t been able to keep up with his many aliases including Team Leader of the Choom Gang.

Well played Liberals.

You gave us a Shiite (cough, allegedly) with multiple identities, who carpetbagged his way from Indonesia to Hawaii to California to Illinois to Washington while snorting Coke and having his college transcripts sealed.

So strong were his financial bonafides that his Chief Economic Adviser was the man who crippled General Electric, otherwise at one time known as the largest company in the world

Good ol Jeff Immelt as in I’m Melting all the hard work of Jack Welch.

As if that wasn’t bad enough he allowed the firm of Greenspan and Bernanke to continue forward under the name of Janet Yellen and crush interest rates for almost a decade creating the largest bubble in history that will eventually pop all over America and the world.

Frankly if it hadn’t been for Donald J. Trump the U.S.A would right now be at ZERO in-regards-to interest rates and Heil Hillary would be looking to hug Jimmy Hamas Carter, Robert KKK Byrd, and screaming for a “cloth” and another reset button while Putin continued to traipse into “NATO/European Union” territory.

The coup de grace (That’s French Liberals. Where did you go to school? Harvard?) for Barack (or whatever his name is) was the fact that he took counsel from a man who said the United States could simply mint trillion dollar coins and pay our debt back to ourselves.

Yes Paul Krugman, you are a bonafide moron.

Of course both of these hucksters are recipients of the greatest fraud of awards this side of the Oscars known as the Nobel Prize.

Obama For Peace.

Who down with OFP!

I know, I know. Try not to laugh too hard and yes this column is “based on a true story”.

The Nobel “people” later said it was given in hopes of providing him inspiration.

In other words they tied Affirmative Action and a Participation Trophy together while the very “white” Nobel Klan embraced bigotry, err, diversity.

Yeah, diversity, that’s it, diversity.

Paulie Shore Krugman received his PT because of his “explaining the patterns of international trade and the geographic distribution of economic activity, by examining the effects of economics of scale and of consumer preferences for diverse goods and services.”

Let me explain this simply.

Krug Less than a Man theorized about…CAPITALISM!

Give that man a prize, a Nobel Prize if you will.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again these “Nobel” nitwits need to change their names to No Clue and be done with it.

Again, well played Liberals.

Well played.

If that wasn’t enough the Progressives in California have decided in July to raise taxes on gasoline (again) and background check anyone buying ammunition.

It’s very clear they haven’t thought this through.

The raising of the price of gasoline in the SUMMER will guarantee MANY problems.

Making ammunition harder to procure will guarantee at least ONE thing.

Surer shooters with truer accuracy.

I’ve always proffered that rope was the best way to go but the Progressives in the Golden State appear to be trying to again make famous an appropriate Revolutionary War quote.

Do not fire until you see the whites of their eyes.

Of course in the Liberals case the only thing one would see at that close a range is their behinds as they tuck tail and run like the mutts that they are, bleating like sheep, in search of many villages, who are missing their idiot.

In God I Trust

The question has been bandied about many times over.

If you could talk to anyone, living or dead, who would you choose?

A large group will select those who were famous for being intelligent, such as Albert Einstein.

Others will prefer humans who were famous for different “attributes,” like Norma Jean Baker.

The answer to this question varies, as with so many different people, their choices will always cover the spectrum and then some.

What about you Jason?

Who would you choose and what would you ask?

For me this is simple.

I’m going with the Big Fella Upstairs and I’m not asking a damn thing.

The only words coming out of my mouth are THANK YOU.

Thank you for giving me Free Will so I not only have the opportunity to work hard, save my money, and be beneficial to others, but also have the capability to realize what I am doing.

Thank you for putting me in the greatest country in the history of Man.

Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!

No questions about the universe, heaven, the creation of Earth, Jimmy Hoffa, who shot Kennedy, or Area 51.

Nothing, nada, zilch except merci beaucoup!

The reason I am writing about this today is simple.

If I have no questions for GOD what makes Liberals think I would ever have a question for them about anything?

What could we possibly ask these lost souls?

How to stop abortion from happening?

According to the braintrust of The Traveling Pants of Milano, women need only to halt having sex, in order to stop getting pregnant, and that all Liberal women, should cease and desist.

Another Progressive decided to support this protest by posing naked.

Hmmm, not sure if they thought that one out, then again, what am I saying?

They are Liberals.

Of course they didn’t.

This is the same group that screams for women’s rights and then supports Islam (Sharia) where women are property and abortion is a crime.

I’m pretty sure there are others ways for responsible adults to keep from getting knocked up but by all means all Progressive women should stop having sex immediately.

In fact let’s make this an Equality issue and attach it to the new “law” the House just passed by adding all Progressive men in there as well.

I have no doubt, if Liberals stick to this course of action, the intelligence quotient of the next generation, will rise dramatically.

Now if we can just close the border and send back all the Somalis, “Palestinians,” the Chinese spying for Dianne Feinstein, and the Pakistanis working for the Clintons/DNC, we might get to a point where we can afford to remove all forms of income tax, save the American Dollar by fixing interest rates and reducing debt, and create new systems where everyone who wants it, can genuinely afford, quality medical care.

Not this Obamacare, California Care, Medicare For All garbage that is crushing Americans and saving illegal foreign nationals.

With all that said I still wouldn’t change a thing when speaking with God.

Thank you again Big Fella.

It’s been a great ride and I appreciate the opportunity, oh and thanks for the Progressives.

We do need comedic relief down here.

What’s that?

You didn’t send them?

Very interesting.

That definitely makes it easier, for us to return them, from which they came.

In the meantime, I guess I’ll see you, when you want to see me.

Sincerely,

Jason Kraus

Libs Need to be Progressive with Their Bigotry

While our National Guard was apparently being disarmed by the Mexican (Drug Cartels) military, the Democrats decided to focus on “environmentalism” by creating a Senate Caucus that will deal with “Race and Class”.

Let me help you Libs.

You are losing the race because you haven’t any class.

According to one of the Democratic Senators “Often times black and brown communities are the ones that suffer the biggest consequences of pollution.”

Whoa whoa whoa!

What is this black and brown stuff?

You Libs need to be Progressive with your bigotry.

African-American, Hispanic, or Latino are your 21st Century choices.

Why are there two different options of bigotry for the “brown” people?

I don’t know.

Maybe the Senate will create a Caucus and get us an answer to that.

In other action happening in Washington D. C. , a few voices SLOWLY are starting to ask whether or not Barack Obama was responsible for the spying on then Presidential candidate Donald Trump.

Of course he was.

It can be a bit surreal to listen to talking heads finally start to discuss things that EVERYONE already knows.

Speaking of talking heads Cheekbones Warren has announced it is time to impeach Donald Trump…again.

The beer swilling “Cherokee” apparently doesn’t understand she has no authority during the Impeachment process.

NONE.

Then again she thinks the United States is a Democracy.

Unsurprisingly so does Humanitarian Hamas Pelosi.

Who down with HHP!

Aunt Nancy the ultimate acronymic three letter virus.

How do Libs feed themselves?

With other People’s money!

Thank you. Thank you.  I’ll be here all week.

In other Dumb Lib News it appears Medicare will start to run out of money in about seven years.

I’m sure putting everyone on it will make it all better.

Due to the limited intellect of the Liberal let us explain this issue with song.

Hush little Libby don’t say a word, don’t bother with the truth, just follow the herd.

If that herd shifts to reverse, Medicare will be there, with your hearse.

Too late Libby, stop that wailing, Sarah was right, you should’ve listened to a Palin.

Okay enough singing. Let us continue in sotto voce to soften the blow to the Dims.

According to “scientists” (propaganda) “feedback loops will make climate change even worse.”

Let’s use the AOC translator to explain this further.

“It’s like you know, like, yeah, (hair flip) like, instead of like twelve years, like it’s like now six years, until we all like die.”

I cannot speak for all but in my opinion, in the case of Progressives, the sooner the better.

Six years is like way too long, dude.

Ya feel me.

Surely you do.

I do and don’t call me Shirley.

Of course Shirley is better than Kareem.

Speaking of worthless humans Bernie Gang Rape Sanders is leading the Democratic Party’s Presidential nominee process without actually being a Democrat.

This shouldn’t surprise anyone.  The Party of Criminality wants to count illegals as citizens in the next Census.

What’s one more comrade on the Hindenburg leading his flock back to their Schultzstaffel roots.

The Dims appear to enjoy the repetition of consonants.

The SS, the KKK, the CBC.

One can only imagine their stupidity with the addition of a vowel.

White Men Can Jump

As we are told every day through the American Media, White People suck.

AOLoonyTunes won her contest by telling the voters in her district to not vote for the White Man.

To vote for someone who looks like them.

They did and she rewarded them by doing a horrible Hillary Clinton impersonation.

I ain’t no ways tired.

Of course you aren’t.

One has to work and carry their own weight in order to be tired.

Still, as dumb as their premise is, let us play along.

I’m not going to remind them of all the “White People” who, for the better, have changed the way humans live.

I’ve done that in the past and it doesn’t seem to matter to the Mad Hatters so here we go.

White People suck.

Hillary Clinton is white yet received over 60 million votes.

The Democratic frontrunners for the Presidency are Bernie, Biden, Beto, and CheekBones Warren.

White, White, White and yep you guessed it…Pale Face WHITE.

Speaker of the House and Hamas supporter Nancy Pelosi.

Ghastly White.

Minority moronic Leader in the Senate Amy Chuck Schumer.

Ghostly White.

Governors of New York and California.

Whiter than a Klan rally.

Former Governors of New York and California.

White and Moonbeam White.

Mueller, Comey, McCabe, Rosenstein, Strzok, and Page.

Say it with me now…Whiiiiiiiite!

Rachel Maddow, Anderson Cooper, and Stephen Colbert.

White, Whiter, and Whitest of all.

After careful review I have to agree.

These White People do suck.

My only question is who keeps voting, hiring, or listening to them?

Bueller? Bueller?

Anyone? Anyone?

After some thought it appears the only thing that will fix this issue is of course Diversity and boy howdy do we have some.

Ilhan Omar decided to basically tell us that Americans deserved the death and destruction that happened on 09-11-01.

Obama’s own pastor flat out said it with God Damn America and America’s chickens coming home to roost in reference to 09-11-01.

Amazingly ol Barack was able to sit in this church for over a decade AND be friends with Louis Kill Whitey Farrakhan.

Ah Diversity.

Bigotry all grown up.

Jussie Smollet style.

With our coverage of the “Whites” and the “Blacks” one would be remiss to not mention the “Browns” otherwise known as La Raza.

Yes The Race which has a Presidential Candidate, Julian Castro, the Attorney General in California, Xavier Becerra, and a Supreme Court Justice known as Sonia Sotomayor.

Hoo boy this is quite a list and when added together we see every single person on it has one thing in common.

They all vote Democrat in a country that doesn’t practice Democracy.

One of America’s Founding Fathers stated that all Democracies die by suicide.

Although it appears the Party in front of us is proving him correct, due to the fact we only have twelve years left, it may be time to Go Green and learn to tie a hangman’s noose.

Rope is still recyclable.

Let us do everything we can to save the planet.

Treasonous Traitors

These days in America each week appears to have its own fits and starts. This seven day period was wrapped around the speech of one Donald J. Trump. Friends or strangers, the question that was asked of me the most was “Did you see President Trump’s speech?”

The question was sometimes asked with excitement, occasionally anger and always with passion.

My answer was this.

“No, I didn’t see or hear the President’s speech.”

At the time it was happening I was nowhere near a television or radio and missed it completely. Each person I spoke with seemed very surprised by my answer.

“His speech wasn’t meant for people like me, people like us,” I said.

“I am all in. We are ALL IN. The only thing I am listening for from Mr. Trump is THE CALL.”

I continued, “His speech was meant for the anti-American population known as Liberal-Progressive-Democratic-Socialists. It was a warning.”

Liberals really don’t get it.

As I’ve said many times President Trump was sent by us to stem the tide.

To give those who will defend these United States a breather, some space, a little time.

He is the carrot.

WE are the stick and it’s pretty clear the DimWits don’t like vegetables.

Well done Mr. President. The population known as AMERICAN is ready to go.

Of course a wall is needed. Of course it will cost a certain amount of money. Nothing worth having is free and of course it will save lives.

As I stated last week physical barriers always save lives.

In the world of reality, where too many these days don’t reside, physical barriers are called SHELTER.

Third on the list of Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs, only slightly less important than WATER and FOOD.

Shelter is nothing but a collection of WALLS that allow for the fourth item on the list of Human Survival to occur.

SECURITY.

It’s very clear that Democratic Politicians and Democratic Voters don’t care about this.

Over the years they’ve embraced murderous dictators like Castro, Chavez, Khamenei and Putin.

Helicopter cash drops, flexibility and uranium anyone?

It’s time to secure OUR country and until that wall is built there is only one thing that will stop the rape, murder and trafficking of humans and drugs through our open border.

One thing and it won’t cost the Federal Government a single penny.

Not one thin dime.

It’s time for the those who can and those who will.

It’s time for the American Volunteer to secure OUR border and protect OUR country.

This will be done with precision, with purpose and with the repeated pull of a trigger.

After about a month our problem will be solved and then we can refocus our purpose on the reason all of this disease, degradation and death originally occurred.

The reason children continue to be raped, sodomized and butchered.

The reason Americans continue to die at the hands of illegals.

The reason opioids are rampant.

Anyone in public office that states they will protect foreign nationals here illegally is committing a treasonous act.

Make the call President Trump.

We here in the Golden State have a Governor who is calling for more illegals, when our law enforcement just lost a member, forever, because of an ILLEGAL.

Gavin Newsom is begging for the attention of the AMERICAN.

It’s time that attention is provided in a permanent fashion.

California is filled with elected traitors and these traitors are the primary reason so many problems are happening across our country.

Make the call Mr. President and let us go to work.

Americans have answered the call from the beginning.

This time won’t be any different.

The fist is mightier than the tweet

Michelle Obama took the time to state that people around the most powerful tables in the world “aren’t that smart”.

Yes Michelle, we know.

You at one time were found at those same tables.

A Democratic Senator from Hawaii bumbled through a statement so verbally bizarre, I won’t bother with her actual words.

Suffice it to say Mazie Hirono thinks she is a genius and the voters are morons.

The majority of voters in the State of Hawaii have proven that one of her premises is correct and it isn’t that she is comparable to Albert Einstein.

Sheryl Sandberg leaned in a little too closely and found herself nose to nose with the Soros spin machine.

Two Libs meant for each other.

Another Senator from New York decided to tell men that they suck, their time is up, and that Intersectionality is here to stay.

I’m guessing someone saw Kirsten Gillibrand on Tinder and didn’t swipe right.

In other Progressive news Gregg Popovich’s San Antonio Spurs are 12-14 continuing to prove that ANYONE could have coached the Spurs to championships when Tim Duncan was on the team.

RINOS continue to provide the example of blathering idiots while “questioning” James Comey for the umpteenth time. Comey, who said he wouldn’t testify in a closed door session, did indeed testify in a closed door session, proving that morons are not only found in both parties but are also on the same side.

Finally, Democrats and RINOS also known as Lindsey Graham (didn’t take him long to return to form) are fretting and frothing about the death of one Jamal Khashoggi.

I understand Obama, Farrakhan and Pelosi being upset about the killing of a supporter of the Muslim Brotherhood, ISIS, Al-Qaeda and Hamas but actual Americans?

The Lindsay known as Lohan has more credibility than the one known as Graham.

Of course the next Speaker of the House has publicly stated that, “Hamas is a humanitarian organization” so what do I know.

I know that with enough votes the “majority” has allowed humans into Congress, that OPENLY support terrorist groups.

Welcome to the suicide of a nation through the work of Democracy.

I also know these vitriolic pieces of fecal matter are laser focused on one thing.

Dear President Trump,

The hyenas are circling and ready to attack as a pack.

In case you aren’t clear YOU are the target and they are coming for everything you have and want you, at a minimum, in an orange jumpsuit.

They are trying to make an example of you and send a message to the citizenry that even a billionaire will be cut to shreds, let alone the average citizen, who attempts to stand up.

By continuing to bring in cabinet members from the past you are continuing to refuel the Swamp as you refill their ranks.

You need to bring in a “sacrificial lamb”.

Someone who will take one for the team.

Bring in your Hector for eight weeks.

Someone who will fire Mueller and his entire probe and indict those we know are guilty like Hillary Clinton and Lois Lerner.

Someone who knows they are only there to demolish the rotten core and tear it down completely including removal of the foundation.

I will happily volunteer my services.

No pay required and I will bring my own security.

This can happen literally overnight and then if/when the heat is too great for YOU, simply call this individual in and demand their resignation or if it will strengthen your hand, fire them.

Give the Press their Achilles moment while completely removing what you keep calling a “witch hunt”.

If it indeed is a “witch hunt,” and it is, then bring it to an end.

In Greek mythology Agamemnon had a great horse built as a “gift” to Hector’s people.

Rather than welcome the Trojan Horse, you need to BURN IT DOWN where it stands, with all the enemies of America inside.

I can guarantee this.

If you don’t send a message soon and I mean before January, the pressure that you’ve been justifiably feeling, will feel like a warm blanket in 2019.

When the House returns to the Democrats their plan and policy of hate, destruction and anti-Americanism will continue.

Why?

Because it is working.

When one side fights without rules, the other side dies.

Time to get us in the fight Mr. President.

This isn’t an uptown limousine New York City soiree.

This is a Republic, Washington battle.

This is a Northern California mountain-folk brawl.

This is a Longwood Florida, Menominee Michigan, Oklahoma City Oklahoma, Peoria Arizona free-for-all.

This fight is with our fists and for the survival of America.

You need to untie our hands.

Tweets aren’t going to do it.

Let that gift be you

Growing up in the seventies and eighties one of the more common sayings was “if you don’t have anything nice to say, say nothing at all.”

Not only was this a wonderful lesson in self-control it also helped to keep the disease known as gossip under wraps.

That was then, this is now.

In today’s world that beneficial saying has been replaced with “just keeping it real” as though gossip and ignorance are “real”.

Whatever that means.

Another is “speaking MY truth” which allows virtually anything to come out of someone’s mouth.

Sadly these are the types of things that happen when Participation diminishes Competition.

When everyone believes they are “special” and a gift to the world.

Hubris has replaced humility.

Greed has replaced Grace.

Morals have been replaced with madness, and because of this, humanity and our systems, are breaking down.

Technology has opened the door for those, whose lives are empty, to “troll” and attempt to put their pain onto others.

They are “just keeping it real, yo.”

These souls are so damaged and in need of something with which to belong, they fill their days jumping onto websites, comment sections, and Facebook pages.

They speak their “truth” by threatening, badgering, and at times stalking others while using vile language including but not limited to profanity.

In the real world none of these things come out of their mouths as they are nothing but keyboard warriors and this is where we, for the betterment of our lives and theirs, must remove them completely.

These humans are comparable to cancer and have the same effect on our bodies.

Unlike cancer, dealing with these diseased animals is very easy, and at your fingertips.

Delete, block, and remove permanently from your life.

“Diversity of thought” doesn’t mean three caring intelligent minds sharing time with three ignorant bigots.

Life isn’t “fair and balanced”.

Life is what you make it.

For example Human Trafficking is never fair nor will there ever be a balance.

It’s something that must stop.

By engaging with the diseased we are giving them a platform to spread their infection.

Would you willingly eat rotten food?

Why then do we engage with rotten minds?

I don’t anymore.

A while ago I had a comment on one of my Facebook pages.  They wanted to know why, out of thousands of comments on my pages, none of them were negative.

This person went on to say they were “speaking their truth” while “keeping it real yo.”

After reading the first paragraph I scrolled to the bottom of the comment that went on for quite a while.  As one can imagine it was filled with hate and desperation and was screaming for my attention.

Like a meth head begging for a hit.

I know most, if not all of us, have had this experience or something similar at one time or another.

For those who value their own health and happiness, deleting and blocking these people without responding, is the best option.

If we have nothing nice to say, say nothing at all, and then remove them from your life so their internal battles don’t become yours.

This can be very difficult ( I have succumbed more than once) as most of us want to strike back or feel we must otherwise we are cowards.

Nothing could be further from the truth.

It is those who remove them without feeding the beast that have strength and are in a position of authority while providing leadership.

No one said leading or doing the right thing is easy.

If however you fall into the category of wanting to “save or educate” or believe it is your duty to explain to these lost vessels what is right and what is wrong I proffer this thought.

For an addict, drug or drama, to ever have a chance to heal, they must first want to heal, otherwise the cycle will repeat, and it does, right on our computer screens.

The loving thing to do with these individuals is to remove them from your life.  Only when they have nowhere else to turn, will the possibility of the truth entering their lives, have a chance.

Silence can be golden and in many cases less is more.

Humans aren’t born special but each one does have an opportunity to be a gift.

Let that gift be you.

“Vote Democrat because anything is possible.”

A while ago I wrote about a Democratic Congressman out of Florida who proclaimed that he and the Liberals had the “black and hispanic vote”, the strong support of the gay community, and were going to run the country.

Florida then proceeded to go for Trump.

Oh the well laid plans of mice and stupid men.

Still, I remember listening to this buffoon and wondering how someone with so much hate and ignorance could ever attain such a position.

I guess anything is possible within today’s Democratic Party.

That could be their new slogan.

“Burning cities, closing schools, runaway debt, and control by public unions which will require new taxes every election cycle.  Vote Democrat because anything is possible.”

I digress.

The Liberal Loon from Florida had made quite a statement.

The Dems had the blacks, hispanics, and gays.

I’m pretty sure there is a word for the concept of having blacks, hispanics, and gays but more on that in a minute.

As I do with all communication, verbal or written, I think about the actual words people use.

Black, hispanics, and gays.

I don’t “have” any black friends.

I don’t have any hispanic or gay friends either because I am not a BIGOT.

I have FRIENDS.

The proximity to the sun of one’s ancestors or sexual preference isn’t on my list of things I find important or relevant to call someone my friend.

Loyal, ethical, smart, hard-working, etc.

This is my list.

Anyone who has a list that has any color or gender preference on it or believes in “skin color diversity” is a stupid human and should be removed from your life.

I have.

These people believe in victimization and live their lives in that role.

It’s incredibly damaging to be around these types of parasites.

Chicago is filled with these types of humans.  California is as well.

Let’s get back to what works.

Loyal, ethical , smart, hard-working, etc.

That is my list.

All humans with these values are valuable to these United States.

I don’t “have” friends.

I am a friend.

Do unto others as you would have done unto you.

As Americans we must choose intelligently and wisely as to whom we will befriend.

In other words Liberals need not apply.

We don’t “have” any room for bigots and personally speaking I lost all patience for Progressivism five clicks back.

Click Liberals.

Click.

In Memoriam

How do you say thank you, to humans you’ve never met in this world, and never will?

How?

How do you say thank you to those still on Bunker Hill?

At Gettysburg?

Those still on the beach at Omaha or Normandy?

Those still located around the 38th Parallel.

How do you say thank you to those still in the Mekong Delta?

Those whose last breath came in Kandahar or Mosul?

I can’t.

I don’t have the words to say thank you, to those who paid the ultimate price, that Americans may be born into a free country.

I don’t have the words to say thank you to those who are the reason the United States of America exists and is the greatest country in the history of man.

I don’t have the words.

I believe in God but I am not a religious man.  When my time is over on Mother Earth I will have but one request.

That I may join, if only for a moment, those precious souls that gave of their blood so mine could flow freely and without fear.

Just a moment before I am shuttled to wherever I am destined so two words can leave my lips to every individual known as an American Soldier that never returned to their home town, never felt the love and appreciation of Americans while walking in a parade on Veterans Day or the 4th of July.

Never saw their families again.

Two words.

Thank you.

It isn’t enough and never will be but as long as I am here, I will humbly serve those to the best of my ability whom served us, to the best of theirs.

Please God, bless those, who have blessed us, with so much.

Mother’s Day

Everyday something new, and quite frankly bizarre, seems to happen in these United States.

Each morning “and as I rise” (Alabama) I no longer check to see whether there is  “new” news.  There doesn’t seem to be an original thought on television anymore and the humor has disappeared completely.

Everyday we have “journalists” who’ve never written a cogent sentence in their entire lives repeating nonsensical blather.

Every night we have “comedians” with writing staffs who believe Nazi references and literally crying is what Americans now find entertaining.

We don’t.

It goes even further than that as most of us in America have finally arrived at sensory overload and are now choosing to not listen to anything coming from the Boob Tube.

How do we know this?

Rating are horrible across the spectrum.

There will always be a “winner” when two or more entities vie for the same customer but interestingly enough, we the customer, have decided that poison comes in many shapes and sizes and this does include at least one square box in virtually everyone’s home.

Yet, as they say, time marches on.

We measure time in many ways.  The most common is minutes and hours.  Seconds move too quickly for most activities to matter unless you run track or did at Chico State and then you want less seconds not more. My superstar nephew will understand that better than most.

Although months are part of our measurement equation, we as humans, really look at time through two prisms.

Days and years.

We remember very specific days, that are important to us, or are important to others, that we do indeed remember.

There also appears to be subjects that most of us pay little attention, that some in our society believe, we should.

For a year to pass without a leap 365 days must occur.  In those days we celebrate “incredible” feats like Chicken Dance Day, Root Canal Appreciation Day, and Nylon Stockings Day.  Putting aside the nylons, who doesn’t like a quality chicken dance or appreciate a good root canal.

We just completed the month of April which began with One Cent Day, Peanut Butter and Jelly Day, and Find A Rainbow Day.

I wish some people had only one scent although I didn’t realize this was something that needed to be cheered.  On the other hand Peanut Butter and Jelly Day, especially grape, could happen, at least for me, once a week.

It doesn’t but it could.

Find a Rainbow Day?

I prefer Melting Snowflake Week.

Fifty-two weeks of it to be precise.

Wednesday April 5th was Deep Dish Pizza Day followed by New Beer’s Eve and completed on Friday April 7th with Walk to Work Day.

That joke writes itself.

As April wound to a close Pig in a Blanket Day was followed by Malaria Day.

True story.

With the arrival of May it appears the build up to a maternal moment was carefully planned.

Both Mother Goose Day and Mother Ocean Day arrive early in May.

Not sure if the geese care and it seems a bit redundant to attach Mother to Ocean.

I’m pretty sure Mother Earth has this covered but then again what do I know?  I’m just a guy.

Still every year, one day in May, we set aside a day to celebrate those that we call Mom, Mother, or in some cases “what’s up Gladys?”

We send cards, candy, and gifts.  We take them out to breakfast, lunch, or even dinner if someone is running late or hasn’t planned properly.

We tell stories from years past that were funny at the time or have now become laughable.

We say Happy Mother’s Day and thank you.  Thank you for the days of getting us out of bed before the sun rose and off to school with full bellies.  Thanks for brushing our hair especially when we fought you the entire time.  Thank you for requiring us to take bathes and later showers whether we wanted to or not.

Thank you for teaching us to read and “doing” our numbers with us.

Thank you for Christmas gifts that were wanted and the socks, nightshirts, and puppet show building that wasn’t.

Thank you for re-creating Aunt Millie’s fudge (I like yours better) making sure we always ate our fruits and vegetables (who knew it could snow on broccoli)  and not freaking out when we hoisted the dogs into the tree house (and couldn’t figure out how to get them down).

Thank you for listening when I needed to talk and letting me be when I didn’t.

We thank the mothers of America who know that these United States are a Constitutional Republic and not a Democracy.

Who know the truth isn’t a sometimes thing and hard work doesn’t stop at the end of a ten hour shift.

That being a mom is so much more than a “job”.  It’s an adventure.  An adventure filled with success and love, sleep deprivation, Friday night collapses on the couch and crazy Sunday morning hair.

It’s filled with tiny bodies jumping on the bed begging to be held followed by the teenage years of “please drop me off down the block and stop trying to kiss me” moments.

There are moments of pride and relief with graduations and weddings, empathy and tears with divorce, and of course the ultimate “payback” as I’ve heard it said many times.

Grand-children.

All of the fun and none of the calories.

So to all the mothers on this day, their ONE day, I say Happy Mother’s Day and thank you.  Thank you for the bake sales, the car washes, the silver dollars in Vegas that were traded for stuffed animals at Circus Circus and for chaperoning the school field trips…I think.

Thanks Mom.  Between Duffy Moon and the Little Engine that Could I always knew “I could do it” or at least “I think I can, I think I can, I think can.”

This I know.

I love you.

Happy Mother’s Day.
