“The enemy (crisis) of the moment always represented absolute evil.”
1984 by George Orwell

The new crisis of the day is the health care roll-out.   Everyone’s bowels are in an uproar: both Democrats and Republicans.  But, just like the government shutdown, a few weeks (or months) from now the roll-out debacle will be old news and not worth a comment even by late night comedians. 

Of the thirty five percent of the nation that bother to vote: fifty percent of the voters are Democrats; twenty-two percent of the voters are moderate Republicans; and twenty-eight percent of the voters are evangelical Christian retards.  The politicians we have elected are a mirror image of the voters and will again create the next government debacle that will keep us awake at night and our blood pressures elevated – if we allow it.  

A little Buddhist perspective: change the things that are in your power to change - accept the things you can not change – and move on.   We would be much happier if we turned off the news and were politically ignorant.  Of course, in this day of technology that is almost impossible.


I just picked up a new book A Freudian Slip Is When You Say One Thing But Mean Your Mother, by Gary Blake.   

If you enjoy PUNS – often noted as the lowest form of humor – I suggest you can o-pun this book to any page and find a phrase you wish you had coined first.    Of course if you are Rand Paul it won’t matter: you will use it anyway and claim it as yours.

  1. I enjoy puns in small doses. Too many, though, and I get a headache.

  2. "Of course if you are Rand Paul it won’t matter: you will use it anyway and claim it as yours." Good one! I'm am going to steal it.

  3. I am a compulsive punster...with me it's almost like Tourrettes....but I inherited it from my father, who realized he had created a monster...when I was 12, he told me I was the most sarcastic child he had ever encountered, but then that was after I said to him, "Hey Dad! Can you sing tenor?" He took the bait as he was great classic professionally trained Irish Tenor and said "Sure!" I snapped back, "We'll then, how about 10 or 20 miles from here?" It took him, perhaps, 2 months to forgive me for that one.

  4. guess what I received in the mail today.? I am dancing on the ceiling..absolutely some of the most beautiful jewelry I've ever will go into each package for the lady's..some of it is so small that I'm afraid that they won't fit their old arthritic hands and fingers..I'm working on that ...I can't thank you and your loving wife for your big and generous hearts..Goddess bless you my dears.

  5. and for your post? if it's not one thing it's your mother.


COMMENT: Ben Franklin said, "I imagine a man must have a good deal of vanity who believes, and a good deal of boldness who affirms, that all doctrines he holds are true, and all he rejects are false."
