My brain’s been all over the place…

In August I was pushed out of a job I loved when the two idiots who owned the business, after years of abusing the system, were forced to sell. It was bought by a couple of guys, one of whom is absolutely unable to deal with strong women. I fit into that category. Yes, I’m currently working, but it’s just not the same; going from something you really liked to do, in an awesome place to…meh. Still, I am thankful I’m employed!

Veterans: men and women in our United States of America—gave lives, limbs and (often) their sanity to defends us and this country’s borders from enemies, foreign and domestic. This same country has ignored them and pushed them aside repeatedly. From the ludicrous nationwide homeless situation to the offer of benefits to immigrants from countries we’re at war with, the treatment of these heroes is deplorable. Why are we allowing aliens to come before those who have given so much for us? Why are we even letting these people in? Why are we, yet again, taking care of people outside our borders when there are so many that need care inside them? No boys and girls, these men and women are to be honored for having the courage to go out and put themselves between those who intend to harm us and the good ole US of A. Focus, focus on what’s important. Keep your warriors happy, safe, well-fed, clothed and covered. The stronger this country’s core is, the stronger our front is against those we have to fear and fight.

Global warming: it exists, people! It’s a natural curve the planet has been going through for eons. But please, don’t think we are not to blame for the exacerbation of the process. Our carbon emissions, plastics use and our general over-existence has pushed the progression. Look at the melting polar icecaps, the extinction of so many species, plant and animal. Sadly,  being the humans we are, most on this planet are doing/will do nothing at all until (alas) it’s too late. That time is coming, fast. We are at a point in our de-evolution where going back and fixing what we’ve fucked up so royally is not even possible, in many cases. Instead of constantly pretending this is not a huge issue, why not try to prevent future destruction by getting informed. Get a grasp on exactly what’s happening, why, and what you can do about it. The smallest step is the beginning of a powerful journey.

And finally, the Presidential (disg)race. I mean seriously, how did we come to this point, where a bunch of overpaid, non-working politicos stuff the worse possible candidates in our face and tell us we must choose from one to run our beloved country. What the hell happened to government of, by and for the people? Why are we not allowed to throw these horrid excuses out and start over with a fresh batch of options? Anyone remember the movie Brewster’s Millions? Check this clip out; it’s exactly what we should be doing right now.

Ok kids, I’m off to finish putting pots and shite away so Hurricane Matthew doesn’t bash everything to bits. Happy Thursday to all and to all a good fight 😉
