It is Thursday already, and I ain't writ a thing...
I guess partly cuz I am really tired of the presidential campaign that has been going on for so long. Seems like all the news is about HRC and BHO.
Now that the primary season is over, we are being inundated with JMc, also.
'Sides, haven't had any inspiration lately.
Radio sez the tornado watch for Sioux Falls has been allowed to expire.
Ben talkin bout 2 to 3 inches of rain per hour.
Still lotsa farmers ain't gotten into the fields yet.
Guess that means there is prolly gonna be a lot less crops comin out next harvest season, which is prolly gonna raise commodity prices way above whatever the majority of us can afford.
Guess you all are pretty happy about the alternate fuels you have foisted upon the rest of us in the name of the almighty god of environmentalism.
The most expensive commodity in this country is I.G.N.O.R.A.N.C.E.!!
Now, some of the blame has to go to the poli-tic-ians who lie through their teeth in order to asuage their pet projects and make sure there is plenty of money for their reelction.
But more blame should be centered on each and every one of us who refuse to learn from history.
Yeah, I remember when I ran for a local school board position.
Our country was in the throes of trying to improve edgemacshun.
You know, the active school board was pushing outcome based edgemacashun.
Well, those who voted for this dumbin down of the skool system, are now reapin what they have sewn.
One of my fave bloggers is Mamacita. She recently posted a rant against smokers, including asking them to seal up their homes so their stinky smoke smell didn't get out.
Well, we have some laws in some of the cities in this country that make it illegal for a person to smell smoke coming from your abode.
Those of us who have been around for a number of decades, should remember the events going on in the Soviet Socialist Republic.
It was socially acceptable to tell on your neighbor, about anything, in order to keep yourself out of trouble with the authorities.
Well, guess what!?@!
We now have cameras at intersections to record driving behavior.
We have doctors asking children if their are handguns in their house.
We have children being expelled for carrying empty, used cartridges.
FOR CRYING OUT LOUD!
We now have children who can tell us how to put a condom on a banana or a cucumber, but cannot tell us anything about how this country came to be.
Well, I am at the age that I have more years behind me than I have ahead of me.
But I have two children who are young adults, and I don't wish for them to have the kind of country we have watched disintegrate on the front pages of history.
Did I say that IGNORANCE is the most expensive commodity we have in this country?
Prolly the saddest part of the whole thing is, I spent 29 years of my life, laying my life on the line so this country would continue to be the land of the free and the home of the brave.
Talk about being short-sheeted!!
Come on Scotty, beam me up!
