We offer observations on the human condition from a 24 year old mind trapped in an 84 year old body.
NOBODY ASKED ME BUT
Some rub eyes with palm of hand.
I experience guilt being alone in a booth.
In the end we do not know where we are going.
There is a time and place for a time and place.
I record what others do not.
Mama at supper always said, “so enjoy.”
Some are so happy with a full mouth of food.
Our lives are complicated by self inflicted goals.
At age 84 I am not in a hurry about anything.
Some walk with hands stiffly by side.

The Republican party won the past election and they arrived in Washington D.C. expecting to run the place and pass their legislation. Most Republicans expected the dude from Africa to get out of their way and turn this nation over to the Koch Brothers. Alas, Republicans forgot that a second term president was not running again for that position and now enjoyed the position of telling one and all, “go fuck yourself!” The NEW Obama frankly does not give a damn about what Republicans seek as legislation and he will make their lives miserable. In one sense, it has become “pay back time” for the president who was constantly impeded in his desires to pass legislation. For the past six years Republicans have been able to block passage of laws, and now the president with his power of the veto is giving then a taste of their own medicine.
The sad aspect of the new Obama is that this attitude would have resulted in greater victories for Obama if only he had behaved in this approach six years ago instead of giving in to Wall Street fears and threats. He should have told Wall Street to go fuck itself and protected those in need rather than making the rich more wealthy.
