A Lack of Self Control?

Everyone needs water to survive but this moron needed it right then and there. To me this is more disturbing than it appears. When I’m working in the sun, I walk to my truck after I finish a job and take a gulp. I don’t stop everything I’m doing and ask the customer for a bottle of water.

Secondly, this idiot so easily made fun of Senator Marco Rubio momentary pause for water while giving a speech last year, then he himself pounced on that water bottle as if he hadn’t had water in days. The Divider in Chief mocked Mr. Rubio by throwing a water bottle around as if to say, he couldn’t control his water urge…

This guy is a fake, while he spoke of lowering the trade deficit he drank a bottle of imported water. I guess American bottled water wasn’t good enough for his Lordship? I might be wrong but I think we even have a trade deficit with Fiji. Slowly it’s coming to light that this King has no clothes and he can get really really thirsty… This too will pass

Four More Killed…

The word came out at about noon yesterday that yet another moron had gone on a rampage. This time only four people were killed and I say only four because lately with the recent mass shootings four pales in comparison to the jerk in Las Vegas and the other guy in rural Texas. You know there’s something wrong in our society when killing four innocent people doesn’t seem that bad.

The lone gunman decided he was going to cause havoc in the small town of Red Bluff and he did just that. He drove from place to place and attempted to settle scores. He made his way to a grade school but found all the doors locked so he moved on. The details are sketchy but at one point he pulled his weapon on two police officers and that was the end of him.

Soon after the tragedy, The Guy in The White House did his usual tweet of condolences but cut and pasted the wrong shooting. This moron could take the time to even check what he typed. Yes folks, this is the country we are living in. It seems like everyday some gun nut is taking out their revenge on innocent people and we have a leader who really couldn’t care less. This too will pass

That’s The Way of The World…

The young brother in the wheelchair is once again in front of this Starbucks as he is every morning. He doesn’t outright ask for money, no he just sits there like a monk of yesteryear who stood at a door, bowl in hand waiting for a little rice. I doubt he was a monk in anyway or form prior to being in the wheelchair but I actually admire him. Could I do what he does?

Down the street comes the man who is racked with mental pain. I’ve seen him before and he’ll be walking normally when suddenly it looks as if he is hit with 12,000 volts of electricity. His whole body goes into convulsions for a moment and then he continues on his way as if nothing had happened. He too is homeless because who could live around that?

Roberta flew down to see Matt at the detention center in San Diego. She texted me what she experienced and despite his situation he’s doing ok. He still blames others for his problems but he still cares about his brothers and sisters. I know he’s ill too and his future looks grim. This is a cold and heartless world for the mentally ill… This too will pass

I’m A Sentry at Peet’s…

The crowd at this Peet’s at the edge of East Oakland is a bit rowdier than most Peet’s located in and around Oakland. I believe this Peet’s is the south most of their stores in Oakland. It’s a wasteland below Fruitvale Avenue until you reach the city of San Leandro. This Peet’s closes at 7:30 or when the sun goes down for good reason, the freeway on ramp is a few hundred feet away for an easy getaway.

I had finished putting in a fiber for a man who had no clue what fiber optics was but he would lower his bill by five dollars if we installed it. The guy before knew everything about fiber and used code words such as latency and duel mode. It about to rain here and that’s when the real fun will start working for The World’s Largest Telecommunications Company. It looks like I’ll be spending a lot of down time at a Peet’s. This too will pass


Glen Campbell died a few months ago but between the wildfire and my working countless hours of overtime, I forgot to mention his passing. Now anyone who knows me knows I love Mr. Campbell’s rendition of Jimmy Webb’s classic MacArthur Park.

This was recorded in 2002 with the South Dakota Philharmonic Orchestra. I’m sure they rehearsed this piece over and over because it’s quite complex. Notice the flutist in the beginning at him in total admiration. Then later she is able to carry on with her duties of playing the flute.

Glen is gone to the other side but he left us with memories and music. Now I know this song has been rated the worst song ever composed but for me it’s the best song ever composed. The other day I placed a fiber for a musician who happened to be wearing a striped pair of pants. I mentioned MacArthur Park and she went her keyboard and without music played all 6 minutes of it. I was in tears… This too will pass

I’m Trying To Stay Positive…

There were those who boarded the Titanic with fears of what if… Yet they still boarded because those around them told them that it was the safest ship ever build. That being said, I have a feeling life is about to get real bad and this isn’t anxiety. Everyday, I turn on my news apps and I’m ready for the next shoe to drop news and my first words out of my mouth are usually, “Now what did he say!?”

Americans have been dumbed down and now are willing to accept anything that Guy in The White House says as a truth. Think about it, he was over heard telling a celebrity how he grabbed women by the crouch and still people voted for him. If I happened to do that, my cell mate would be telling me what I could or couldn’t do. This guy has his finger on the button for nuclear destruction. Do you see why I tend to see the darkness lately?

Still I try to be positive. Ok I’m not a conspiracy theorist but after the Wine Country Wildfires, I’m thinking there is no way 17 fires started throughout the four counties without help. Three nights before the first fire broke out as I was driving home late at night, I noticed something strange. A shiny new Red Cross pickup truck parked on a deserted portion of Highway 121. 

It was only a few days after the fire spread out of control that The Red Cross took over all the evacuation centers and dismissed all the quickly assembled volunteers. When local officials questioned the move they were told, it’s The Red Cross business to do that stuff. I’m just saying a Red Cross vehicle parked on the side of a desolate stretch of road and then all of a sudden a few days later a firestorm engulfs the area? This too will pass

Roy Moore…

Finally, light is being shed on these vermin who have abused children. Here’s Roy Moore, the Republican Senator Wanna Be, who is said to have had relations with underage teenagers when he was in his thirties. Wait, isn’t Mr. Moore the same guy who lived by The Ten Commandments and forced his ideology on everyone around him? I forgot, Roy says he’s been married to the same woman for years now so it can’t be him.

Then there are his supporters who are willing to look past his sexual indiscretions and say that since Jesus’s mother was a teen and Joseph was an older carpenter then it’s alright. Listen, Old Roy was trying to spawn another Jesus to save our society from damnation. I guess you really can fool some  people all of the time… Back to Roy and The Ten Commandments, he probably didn’t see anything wrong with raping young girls because it doesn’t say it’s an abomination in The Bible. 

Don’t worry, The Guy in The White House weighed in on Mr. Moore’s problems. He says Roy Moore should do the right thing but that’s coming from a guy who grabs women because when you have money you can do that. Now to be fair some Republican Senators have come out and denounced Mr. Moore’s past behavior. There used to be a time when it was always the Republican Party who stood up for family values, now-a-days they stand behind a guy who rapes children. How times have changed… This too will pass

“I Am A False Prophet!”

Joel Olsteen should be forced to say, “I am a false prophet and God is a superstition” before they sentence him for ripping off his congregation. I never liked this snake oil salesman. He exudes a aura of mistrust. I find it interesting that a hurricane destroyed his meal ticket when he refused to open his church to evacuees. Please don’t worry about Joel and Victoria, rumors  are he has left his mega-church for greener pasture though there was already a lot of green lining his pockets prior to leaving. He and his bimbo wife did quite well as they lived high off the hog. This too will pass

He’s A Real Moron…

The Divider-in-Chief says he believed Vladimir Putin when he says his country did not meddle with our election and he doesn’t want to talk about it anymore. Oh and he thinks Mr. Putin was offended by him asking the question as to if he had anything to do with meddling. Was he serious? That’s like asking Adolf Hitler if he had anything to do with the burning of the German Reichstag and he becoming offended by asking him about it…

Still we have those on the right who are willing to say Mr. Rtump is doing a good job and so what if Mr. Putin helped him get in office. Finally, there are members of the Republican Party who aren’t willing to go down with the sinking ship. You know it’s going to only get worse. It’s pretty bad when The Bush Family couldn’t vote for this narcissistic charismatic psychopath and quietly voted for Hillary Clinton. 

It seems like everyday The Orange One says something more outrageous. The other day he told everyone that he didn’t blame China for taking advantage of the US. What sort of President says that sort of thing? Talk about throwing a country under the bus… I truly hope Mr. Mueller has a few more surprises for Mr. Trump when he gets back from his Asian tour… How about his son-in-law brought up on money laundering charges? Wouldn’t that be interesting? It’s not passing fast enough but it will.

What Is Wrong With These Guys?

Louie C.K thought it would be a good idea to do what he did. At what point did he say to himself, “This sort of thing won’t help me or my career.” I won’t go into what he did because quite frankly, it’s crude and disgusting. I suppose he’s never heard of the principle of cause and effect. How in his right mind could he think that behavior like he did wouldn’t come back to bite him?

I always liked  Kevin Spacey but no more. Yet  another guy who preyed upon young guys. I hope this loser takes matters into his hands and writes a farewell note and well you know… Men preyed on me and literally destroyed my life. The thing that finally did it for me was when he used the revelations of his actions to come out of the closet. Please… This too will pass
