We should have a NATIONAL PRIMARY DAY... Right now the news morons are all basically saying "Super Tuesday" will determine who the Nominees for each party will be. Two reasons this bugs me... #1 There's plenty of voting after Super Tuesday... so... it does not determine who the nominee shall be. #2 All this focus on the "horse race" early on... with News Reporters claiming who will be the nominee, gives the feeling that if your state primary is after Super Tuesday... it doesn't matter. For those of us in Michigan who will vote on Tuesday, March 8th... a week later... it becomes really annoying. By the time the Michigan Primary takes place, every News reporter in the country will have already told who is going to win, regardless of how any of us in Michigan vote. It is really annoying. Often, a candidate we might have liked is already out of the race, because of Iowa, New Hampshire, etc. didn't like them. By the time WE get to vote... the field has already narrowed itself down to one or two candidates... The whole thing is annoying. My vote should count just as much as somebody who lives in Iowa, New Hampshire, etc. And think of this... there are plenty of states who have primaries long after Michigan does. We have already lost a few Candidates on the Republican side... of course we all know Hillary will be the Democrat nominee... (if she can stay out of prison) ANYWAY... I really SERIOUSLY think there should be a SINGLE national primary day. Making primary voters in ALL states equal. This system is messed up. And, not to mention the Democrats and their "super delegates" who can go to the convention and vote for whoever THEY want... regardless of how the people of the state voted. For example... This year... Bernie Sanders schlonged Hillary in New Hampshire.... beating her by an amazing 20 percentage points... but... they each will get the SAME number of NH delegates for the convention.. because ALL of New Hampshire's super delegates say they will back Hillary... even though Bernie clearly stomped her ass in their state. The whole thing is a mess. I say... ONE NATIONAL PRIMARY day... And delegates MUST back the winner of their state... or... the district they represent. There should be no Super Delegates, in either party. All this NONSENSE that makes people in Iowa or New Hampshire have more power with their primary vote than people in other states with later Primary elections... this whole thing is just garbage. Have a National Primary Day... all on the same day... then let the political parties choose their nominee based upon those results. And, by the way... if you are a resident of Washington DC... you don't cast your primary vote until JUNE 14th ... long after the Primary process has already narrowed the field down to basically ONE candidate for each party. I mean... why even vote in a primary if the nominees have already been determined by people in all the other states... before you are even allowed to vote. ALL VOTES SHOULD BE EQUAL.... and the only way to do that is to have a NATIONAL PRIMARY DAY. -

One of the smartest things I ever heard... from one of the smartest people I can think of: George F. Will once said... something like this: "The IMPORTANT trends in the world... are the trends that all the people IN POWER are trying to stop... or control... and... no matter what they do... and no matter how many powerful forces TRY to stop it... The people in charge simply can't stop it."

--- Some examples.... "The rise of the internet" .... or... The Rise of Radical Terrorist Islam. -- Those are couple of GREAT examples of things everybody in power tried to control... or stop... and basically they can't. Another great example is Donald Trump. The POWER brokers in The Republican party are doing everything they can to stop the guy.... and they can't do it. Somehow... He keeps getting votes. And... the same could be said for The Democrats this year... Bernie Sanders is doing a WHOLE lot better than the people who run things want him to. But.... don't limit this thinking to Politics.... This applies to something as simple as POT-HOLES in our roads. In spite of all the talk... and all the money that is spent on it... America has a massive infrastructure problem. We spent 100 years building roads and bridges... as if they would last forever.... when... in reality... not much of it was built to last. Or how about this one.... We hear over and over... people in power talking about "saving American jobs" ... yet... the reality on the street is... regardless of who we vote for... America's jobs are being outsourced to countries with lower labor costs... and it is happening at an alarming rate... and nobody seems to be able to stop it. The absolutely absurd War on Drugs is another example.... in spite of spending zillions of dollars... (big surprise) ... people still use drugs... and drug use continues to grow throughout our society. AND THE LIST GOES ON. I have nicknamed this whole thing... "The George Will Theory" ..... lol... So... next time you are trying to figure out what news stories REALLY matter... through all the clutter we are exposed to... I suggest applying "The George Will Theory"... When you see trends that are happening IN SPITE of the people in charge... things the powers that be can not control.... THOSE are the News stories and trends that matter.
The rest is just noise.

Keyboard Cat Video ....

When is the last time you watched THIS classic video?



Micheal McDowell starts 39th out of 40 cars at THE DAYTONA 500 today.... which isn't a big deal... until you consider THIS crash he was in, back in 2008.  Just one of so many stories that make up an event like The Daytona 500... an event I have watched since I was about 10 years old.  So... we are off to the races... for the 2016 season!  And... best of luck to Micheal McDowell !!!  -

re. People.... There's somebody I work with... don't know her very well... been working nearby her for about a year. Always happy, always cheerful... somebody you can count on for a smile or a casual joke. A real positive person who puts others in a good mood, everyday. SO... recently... she took a week off, or so... suddenly... for unknown reasons. She comes back totally devastated, completely down... really dragging... like a completely different person. HERE IS THE QUESTION.... Do I snoop into it and try to help? Maybe accidentally say the right thing? Again... somebody I have probably never had a 10 word conversation with. An interesting thing to ponder... Do I just sit back and watch a really happy person be miserable? Or do I risk stepping in it completely in an attempt to be nice? Clearly, something really big happened... to change somebody this much... yet... I haven't caught on to what it may be... ANY IDEAS? An interesting predicament. -

Something people underestimate about Hillary...

Something people greatly underestimate about Hillary...
Crossing the National Security people in DC is a very dangerous thing to do. I doubt she will live through the year. These are people you simply can not mess with, like she has. I have dealt with these people, on a limited basis... and they are downright scary. Poor Hillary has NO CLUE who she is messing with. She is in trouble with the wrong people, on this National Security stuff. You simply can not do what she has done and expect to live very long. Seriously. Hillary thinks she is invincible... but... there are people out there who simply will not tolerate somebody carelessly throwing around our National Secrets. This stuff is WAY bigger than she is. She is in danger. There are National Secrets that are far more important than a single human life. It might be a fun little game for her... but... The National Security types are not playing. She will not become President. Period. And, if she doesn't shut up... she may not live through the year. This is a REALLY sad situation... and I see disaster headed her way. People her age die all the time of "natural causes." And... if you think things like that don't happen... think again. Hillary is in deep. And, it is not funny. You just can not mess with THESE PEOPLE. There are people in this world you can kick around and play games with.... but... National Security type people won't put up with it. They WILL stop her. She is in grave danger. I see a very sad time in our Nation's history coming up in a few months. We are right on the brink of tragedy, with this one. This is not a good thing. This is a very, very sad situation for America. - S

Why I am voting for Bernie Sanders....

Speaking of The Star Spangled Banner....

Speaking of The Star Spangled Banner... Who knows the SECOND and THIRD verses? Everybody sing along, now...
And where is that band who so vauntingly swore
That the havoc of war and the battle’s confusion,
A home and a country should leave us no more!
Their blood has washed out their foul footsteps’ pollution.
No refuge could save the hireling and slave
From the terror of flight, or the gloom of the grave:
And the star-spangled banner in triumph doth wave
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave!
Oh! thus be it ever, when freemen shall stand
Between their loved home and the war’s desolation!
Blest with victory and peace, may the heav’n rescued land
Praise the Power that hath made and preserved us a nation.
Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just,
And this be our motto: “In God is our trust.”
And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

People and their silly brand names....

You know... sitting here thinking about something. I notice a lot of people consider the list of Singers / Actors and entertainment types they like to be part of THEIR identity. How strange. I simply can not relate to that mentality. The entertainment business is exactly that... a BUSINESS. And, that is ALL it is. This is right up there with people who consider the brand of car they drive to part of their identity... or brand of shoes... etc, etc, etc. All I can say is... perhaps they might consider having their very own identity that reflects something... anything... about who they really are... instead of what products they consume... and which businesses have successfully separated them from their money. I could make a guess... as an armchair psychologist... that they are simply afraid to put THEIR OWN personality out there for people... so they rattle off lists of singers / actors they like... brands of jeans they wear... etc, etc, etc... rather than risk sharing anything of substance about themselves. Just my uneducated guess. Anyway... I run into a lot of people like this... and it really puzzles me. Clearly something wrong with anybody over 15 who presents themselves this way. They are hiding something from the world... that is for sure.

I live in Religious Whacko Land....

You know... Holland Michigan really is Religious Whacko land... Seriously... The place is just full of whacked out "Christians" who are mostly just full of crap... and wouldn't know Jesus if they were talking to him face to face. What a town full of weirdos. Sometimes it just hits me... How in the world did I survive growing up around all these fruitcakes? These people are just so full of THEMSELVES and not "God"... or anything else even remotely good... Just drives me NUTS. For the most part... I see it as more evil than anything else... These people are psychotic. I don't mind people who believe in magical invisible beings in the sky... I mean... fine with me... I don't care if other people worship Tennis Shoes. Doesn't matter to me. It is none of my business. Its all the same ludicrous nonsense to me, either way. What I do care about is they act like ASSHOLES to their fellow humans... Prancing around bragging about how THEY are so smart that THEY just happened to choose the one true correct religion... THAT crap bothers me. The sheer arrogance of these people goes against everything their own religion teaches them. Not to mention... most of them I talk to know less about their own religion than I do... which utterly amazes me. And... their complete intolerance of other religions is nothing short of shameful. How DARE they swagger about declaring they are so correct and they know the one right prescription for everybody else. It really is sickening. Anybody with a BRAIN should feel insulted to the core by such stupidity. You would think they would take a hint from the Muslims who are slaughtering people in the name of Allah... You think that would clue some of these people in... that declaring YOUR religion as the "one true religion" might, just maybe, lead to some problems with other people who think THEIR equally stupid religion is the "one true religion" .... What a bunch of evil garbage. All of it. Why do they give a rat's ass what anybody else believes, anyway? The truth is... it is absolutely none of their fucking business. Why can't we all just get along? After all... when you think about it.... after you cut through the crap.... we all basically believe in the same Flying Spaghetti Monster, anyway.... So, what is everybody's problem?

Finally got that Author Biography finished....

Finally got that annoying Author Biography finished... as best I could. I can always edit it, later. For now, this will have to do. I just hate writing these sorts of things.... Its like a rotten homework assignment, or something....

My new Email Address ....

Big Smile... my new completely egotistical email address is up and running...

-- There's certain sense of humor to that... Big Smile.....

Wrote a new song....

Just wrote a great "Death Song" .... Can't really post much about it until I send it off to Nashville. Have to see what sort of interest I get from my Nashville contacts before saying much about it. Quirky business. Have to do things right. But, I really like this one --

Just follow these 8 Simple Steps:

With the price of gasoline so low... it only makes sense to convert gasoline into food. Gas is getting cheaper. Food is getting more expensive. Turns out... converting Gasoline into food is much easier than most people think!

Just follow these 8 simple steps:

#1 -- Search online to Figure out where and when all the Food Bank drop offs are within reasonable driving distance of your house.

#2 -- Carefully put the gasoline into the gasoline tank of your automobile.

#3 -- Drive around to all the Food Bank drop offs, being sure to arrive at the proper times and locations you previously identified with your online research.

#4 --- Try to look poor. This usually helps you get a few extra items.

#5 -- Pick up your food.

 #6 -- Place food in car.

#7 -- Using the remainder of the gasoline... drive home.

#Step 8 -- Unload your food.

 And... PRESTO! Its like Magic! 

You just converted a few dollars worth of gasoline into FOOD ..... It couldn't be easier! -


My new hat ....

I ordered myself a present... a genuine leather stockman's hat.... I have wanted one of these for a long time... Key differences from a cowboy hat are the shape... the fact that it is LEATHER... and... one thing I had to shop around for was to find one with a NARROW brim. I don't like hats that you feel you can't fit through a doorway with. Also, the Bramah brand hats are foldable... which I need... so I can stuff it in a locker... or whatever. Although Stockman's hats are an Australian thing... the Bramah hats are made in the USA. This one has the pre-worn leather look to it.... which is what I wanted... because I want it to look like a scrappy OLD hat the very first time I wear it. ANYWAY... so I am pretty excited about it. Been wanting a distinctive hat for years.... Hopefully, this will do the trick.... I will update this story when I actually get my fancy new scrappy looking hat.... -
