Wednesday Reads: Sick of this Evil

You can feel good

It has been so long since I think anyone of us can say…yes, I feel good.

I found that image somewhere on the net….Instagram, Facebook…I’m not sure.

No joke:

Oh and btw…the widow is pregnant.

Let’s try this:

What a racist asshole…

But there are so many assholes:

At least Mexico is coming to aid Puerto Rico:

And then there’s Maude:

Sunday Reads: Love is the Seventh Wave

D7BC3960-47AE-469E-9F22-3688EABCC81D

Well, one thing about being without internet or cell service…I am getting to listen to my music again. One of the songs in my list of purchased music is Love Is The Seventh Wave by Sting. It came out in 1985 from his first solo album, Dream of the Blue Turtles.

 

So optimistic….see what I mean.

Take a look at the lyrics:

In the empire of the senses
You’re the queen of all you survey
All the cities all the nation
Everything that falls your way
There is a deeper world than this
That you don’t understand
There is a deeper world that this
Tugging at your hand
Every ripple on the ocean
Every leaf on every tree
Every sand dune in the desert
Every power we never see
There is a deeper wave than this
Swelling in the world
There is a deeper wave than this
Listen to me girl
Feel it rising in the cities
Feel it sweeping over land
Over borders, over frontiers
Nothing will its power withstand
There is no deeper wave than this
Rising in the world
There is no deeper wave than this
Listen to me girl
All the bloodshed all the anger
All the weapons all the greed
All the armies all the missiles
All the symbols of that fear
There is a deeper wave than this
Rising in the world
There is a deeper wave than this
Listen to me girl
At the still point of destruction
At the center of the fury
All the angels all the devils
All around us can’t you see
There is a deeper wave than this
Rising in the land
There is a deeper wave than this
Nothing will withstand
I say love is the seventh wave
Songwriters: Gordon Sumner
Love Is the Seventh Wave lyrics © Sony/ATV Music Publishing LLC
It is a nice thought, isn’t it?
Wait, maybe a line from Hemingway is better….
Isn’t it pretty to think so?
Love is not going to save us from the orange asshole and his disgusting klan of hateful Republicans. It is way to late for any of us to make it out unscathed.
Well, quoting the lyrics from another song in the same album…
Consider me gone!

Wednesday Reads: Doomed Worlds

Once again it is late at night, and I am in the dark quickly writing this post. Only this time I’m hanging out in the car, the woods are full of bears here in Vogel…and I don’t mean the same kind of bears that some dudes find attractive. I’m talking the real thing. Real 🐻.

Look at some cartoons:

This is an open thread. I hope everyone is ok…still waiting to hear from the insurance company. It really sucks.


Sunday Reads: R-E-S-P-E-C-T …Take a knee

The cartoon above was a good one…

There is a lot I would like to say, but without internet or cell service…it is difficult to get any thoughts or words of protest out there.

Hell, it is impossible to read the blog. So, since I’m writing this post blind…I hope that everyone is fine.

Here’s a few tweets to start the post,

I will end with this tweet, because it expresses exactly how I have felt about taking a knee from the very beginning …

It was never a question of disrespect. The players did not turn their backs on the flag. Ugh!

This is an open thread.


Wednesday Reads: Madman and Rocket Man

Hey, I don’t usually like or retweet David Corn…but those two tweets above made me laugh out loud.

Going straight to cartoons, since I’m writing this outside in a very dark and dangerous state park that is surrounded by national forest.

#GeneralKelly reflects the feelings of most Americans. This was his reaction during Trump's speech at the #UnitedNations this morning.

Please note that many of those cartoons are from the foreign press.

Sunday Reads: Broflake

Fuck Irma.

I don’t think it will replace my usual phrase, that being: Fuck Bernie Sanders. (I mean my iPhone knows that is what I’m typing once I get to the fuc…because it begins to suggest the ending…zip and easy, 1,2,3…Fuck Bernie Sanders.

We have been staying at Vogel State Park…my daughter works for the DNR…there at Vogel, and I really do not know what we would do without the park’s generosity. My mom’s biopsy is tomorrow…and on Friday we find out if she needs to resume her chemotherapy.

Internet and cell service is not strong here, in fact…we barely have a connection on either service. So the post is going to be a quick one.

I thought this Instagram picture below would get your attention. It sure got mine. And it introduced me to the term “broflake.”

Well, we have moved into the other cabin…this one has zero wifi and cell. I will have to end the post here. It is going to be a rough time ahead.
