None of the Above

May 10, 2008

None Of The Aboe

 Never has there been a better time for the choice of None Of The Above.  How in the world do we make a decision about a left-leaning Republican, a left-leaning Democrat and an ultra-left-leaning Democrat?

The latter, Obama, talks of “change”.  Well, we’re gonna get change no matter what.  Most of that change might be in the mind and heart of the next president, however.  How can someone take over given the current conditions (good or bad) and make the RIGHT change?  John plans to vere left while Hillary plans to turn-left and blame-right.  As for Barack, he plans to FALL left, which will either be the most brilliant strategy or the greatest mistake — kinda like our current situation with George.

As for George, the jury is still out.  Will the history books show all of this turmoil as a great vision carried out by a man who had to live out his vision despite the ridicule of most of America or will he go down in history as the worst ever?

Who would want to be president, anyway?

Now, back to the topic:

We need a fresh, new batch of candidates that REALLY WANT TO HELP AMERICA (or at least one).  The current batch just want “the office” and the in-fighting from the Democrats goes to show us they’re truly the house divided against itself. 

Soon, we’ll get to see how Barack and his running mate team up to fight John while John has been sitting back collecting ammunition.

Is he too old for the fight?

Let’s just start over.  EVERYBODY BACK IN THE RING!!!

Today, I Feel Old

April 6, 2008

Charlton Heston

OK.  Today, I feel old.  Moses is dead.

Who hasn’t seen the Ten Commandments movie?

I’ve been watching this man all of my life and indeed just (bought and) watched the movie The Omega Man within the last couple of weeks.  I frequently watch selections from the Planet of the Apes series and have always respected Mr. Heston’s talent and even his political views.

Every time someone like this dies, I feel the RATCHET of life pushing me one step closer.  I hear the mechanism click, but never hear it unclick.

MLK

 

Now that it has been 40 years since the assassination of Martin Luther King (MLK) (and I’m not making light of this issue based on its location in this posting), I realize how fast that life ratchet moves and how many clicks go by that we don’t even notice. 

I remember we were in Atlanta during the funeral.  I remember my father going out to the celebration.

MLK was 39 when he gave the “I Have a Dream” speech.  I would have been NOWHERE NEAR READY for something like that when I was 39.

I’m now older than Hendrix (27), John Belushi (33), ODB (35),  Stevie Ray Vaughan (35), Anna Nicole (39), Malcom X (39), MLK (39), Edgar Allan Poe (40), Elvis (42), Reggie White (43), Steve Irwin (44)
 and Jesus (on Earth) (33).

WOW!
May we all live to be as old as Moses.

Goodbye, Mr. Heston.
