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


Some lean with one hand on counter.

I wonder if other life forms have numbers.

We enter the world in ignorance and depart….?

Always allow the child to make choices.

Some sleep through life.

I learned young how to survive.

No one can speak for God but God.

Life is simply a fight to survive.

I am rarely surprised by human stupidity.

So enjoy witnessing an old man making out with old ladies.

One’s stomach often reveals one’s feelings.

We have become a nation waited down with pounds of flesh.

Some women follow a man with a forlorn look.

I have never worn black boots.

I accept disappointment as normal.

I eat less these days and think more.

In the end, we are simply some human beings.

Religious Freedom For All

There is an area in the United States of America known as the “state of Mississippi.” For some, there is no such state although there is a Mississippi state of mind. Over a hundred years those with white skins living in this neck of the woods rebelled against the American government to protect their right to have a few slaves. Their religion insisted those with white skins could enslave those with dark skins, this idea came from God so how could any decent Christian fail to obey God? There are still some of those white folk inhabiting the region of Mississippi. Yesterday, they passed the Religious Freedom Restoration Act which defends the rights of those who believe in God not to have anything to do with those who believe in gay or lesbian rights. This means, I do not have to sell them things, I do not have to allow them in my hotel or business establishment as long as I obey the words of God.

Tony Peters of the Family Research Council hailed the law as a “victory for the first and 14th amendment right to live and work according to my conscience” So, gays and lesbians stay away from my business and go eat a hamburger elsewhere. I was wondering:

1. My religious belief is that having any of my money taken away in taxes to help feed the hungry violates what God told me. So, I do not pay taxes.

2. My religious belief is “an eye for an eye” which grants me the right to kill anyone who gives me a
dirty look.

I have a few more religious views but will not bother you with them. Just make certain to do what I demand be done or else–God will speak with my weapon of mass destruction.

Sometimes, too much, too soon.

Sometimes, too little, too late.

Sometimes, nothing.

For most Americans there is never too much.

For the elderly, just another day alive is enough.

Always reward love with love.

There ARE things money can not buy.

Time in life to run like hell to live.

I am elderly but think like a 23 year old.

Some are born young at heart.

I have always waited for Godot.

A President must be historical minded.

We must live IN, not Åpart from history.

Splatches on hand reveal age.

Today in America, both elderly and young feel abandoned.

Some stumble through life.

One must have faith in life to be mentally healthy.

I prefer women wearing tight to loose jeans.

To truly think, requires work and thought.

Some walk with hand on hip.

Few humans explore their inner world.

Some seek,some are sought.

Some grow old, some grow young in their mind.

After integrity, few things are as important.

The future lies undiscovered.

I was born in the working class and shall die in it.

In each life, resides a great story.

Some communicate through silence.

To test Death is to test Life.

Anyone can become a hero.

Some must shake the bottle before opening it.

Some doze through life.

To know what I don’t know is to know.

Some boast of their ignorance.

There ARE things that should remain silent to others.

There ARE times to tell off people for their stupidity.

Some fear the night, some the day.

Some never fear.

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.
