We offer observations on the human condition from a 23 year old mind trapped in an 83 year old body.


Red headed boy with dark haired mom raises questions.

Some while waiting convey loneliness.

When alone, I prefer being alone.

We come, we depart, the question is when?

Jeans accentuate the butt.

I am the child of God, few are.

Some slurp soup quickly.

I wonder why God made us with different colored hair.

As she completes meal, husband sits with legs crossed-waiting.

Sad news is that Death works every day in year.

I wonder why the smile evolved.

I struggle to hate anyone.

Some talk with assurance.

There ARE times to fire the coach.

Some put on gloves while inside, others when get out.

Some shake head in delight.

One must know in life when to punt the ball.

Beghazi Caused Ukraine Crisis!

Thank God the American people have Senator Lindsay Graham keeping the cowardly President Obama under the telescope of scrutiny for his foreign policy failures. Senator Graham explained to the American people why there is conflict in the Ukraine and why President Putin is able to persecute opponents and homosexuals. The cause of the current crisis in Ukraine is rooted in failure upon the part of Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to protect our Ambassador in Libya, and after he was killed to track down the killers. “It started with Benghazi when you kill Americans and nobody pays a price, you invite this kind of aggression.” I sort of beg to differ with the senator because the root of the current Ukraine crisis lies with former President Dwight Eisenhower. In 1956 when brave Hungarians rose in rebellion against communist leaders, the cowardly Eisenhower stood by and did nothing.

Another example of how we got to the present occurred during the 1980s when MUSLIM TERRORISTS bombed a US Marine Barracks and the cowardly Ronald Reagan did NOTHING! I urge the senator to dig further into the origin of the Ukraine crisis, how about that Abraham Lincoln who started the Civil War??

Sexual Assault In The Military Needs Fixing

Those who have served in the United States armed forces are quite aware of how to engage in the act of an assault on an enemy position. Have your gun cocked and ready to fire at any time. Unfortunately, there are officers in the US military who fail to distinguish between cocking their gun(in Army lingo, your gun is your prick) and cocking a weapon of war. General Jeffrey Sinclair has been confronting issues raised at a court martial in which a female officer claimed he made a sexual assault on her and nothing was ever done about it. Poor General Sinclair is also charged with a variety of other crimes such as adultery and the possession of pornography. Superiors refused to punish him for sexual assault, but when it comes to really SERIOUS issues such as adultery or pornography, they are prepared to take action.

But, since there are some in the military who want to pursue the crime of sexual assault, General Sinclair has decided that reality is preferable to taking a chance someone might actually find a general guilty of forcing a female lieutenant to engage in sex. So, he has pleaded guilty to adultery and pornography. I assume he believes taking responsibility for a major crime gets him off the hook for the minor one of “sexual assault.”

Most children trust parents until….

I do not like feeling of being crowded.

Fewer children per family alters parent attitudes toward children.

I wonder if ‘hate’ is a universal emotion.

When one speaks on cell phone others in booth gaze upward.

Snow advisory to older folk not important, we are not going out.

I would have made an excellent ‘character actor.”

Place four teen girls in a booth and laughter emerges.

In modern America, few who regulate are regulated.

I frequently wonder what I will never know.

Death should be compelled to take a holiday if there is a blizzard.

Fewer men these days pull out chair for woman.

Some sit with hands folded in front of face.

We all agree that we live, we die, and there is where we disagree.

In most groups the iPad controls conversation.

There is always another alternative.

Cynicism is the opiate of modern youth.

I feel proud paying a library fine, contributing to good.

All too many express angry towards those who are poor.

If a light emerges on my dashboard so does fear and anxiety.

There are baggy pant and trim pants people in life.

In the end, it is merely another act in a drama without a conclusion.

Problem: these days people retire and become bored.

Active minds can lead to active bodies.

I see more fathers with kids these days.

There are times to take a vacation from being cynical.

If God takes a vacation, why not me?

Some classify restaurants by food, me, by bathroom cleanliness.

I still at 83 check if woman has ring on finger.

For some, lechery never dies.

Evil resides in the person, not their money.

For the NRA, how about a daily shoot out at high noon??

I wonder if people watch television in Heaven.

There are moments when curiosity invites Death.

I was an innocent child and became an innocent old man.

To understand the future, study the past.

Always err on the side of adventure into unknown.

Some know what they always have known.

I’d rather be wrong than not pose the question.

I never allowed my hair to cover my eyes.

Once inside a store I never walk with hands in jacket pockets.

Young girl in bagel shop sadly says, “I guess that I will be here forever.”

Always remember, the sun will shine, sooner or later.

I never divide newspaper with anyone.

In the end, a boss is a boss.

In the end, we become who we always were.

There is a symmetry to life, the issue is finding it.

When seated, I prefer back to wall.

These days I stumble through life.

At this point I would settle for any type of leader!

By November, one knows what winter will bring.

Some have no idea they have no idea.

Be an explorer of life.

Venture into the unknown to know.

Some old folks walk side by side, others do not.

Long time since I heard: “straight and narrow.”

A certainty of life, we all wind up as dust.

Some enter the Rest Room with a determined look.

In the end, there is only an “I,” not a “we.”

Does God prefer to vacation in cold or warm climes?

Mystery of life: how crowd in coffee shop disappears.

Mystery of life: elderly woman with motorcycle helmet.

I enjoy the company of elderly men who served in the armed forces.

Obama And Paroles

The president of the United States of America has the power to parole those who have been unjustly convicted of crimes or to mitigate sentences that are way out of line with the crime and punishment. There are cases of a person receiving a life sentence for stealing a jacket-his crime was to possess a black skin. President Obama waited until 280 days had passed prior to issuing a parole for someone in jail. As of this date, he has only pardoned about 39 people for crimes. This is among the lowest number of paroles by an American president in history. This is stocking, every day a man or a woman goes to jail for a minor crime because of their skin or ethnic background. Surely, the president can set those people free. They never would have gone to jail if they had money or their skin was white.

The president can strike a blow for the madness of our sentencing system which sends the vulnerable, the poor and the ill to jail because they lack money for a competent lawyer. Obama is great at rhetoric, but lousy at justice.
