Ramblings…1/8

January 9, 2012

It seems that my Christmas story has drained me of any inspiration to write. Or maybe because we are no in deep winter, with dark days and cold temperatures my mind has gone into hibernation. Things here on the homestead have also slowed a bit as the winter hardened. I have been working to finish a video project for release this summer and of course last minute changes always seem the most frustrating.

But for the most part there is just ‘nothing’ rattling around inside my head. Absolutely nothing is grabbing me and saying this is nuts I must make some comment on it. Of course I get spikes of a thought every time I listen to the news or read an article online, but the motivation to put these thoughts to paper is just not there. Below is a short piece I started to write about the coming election year. I started with a direction but soon my motivating force was gone and so was my creativity.

With this being the beginning of an election year I guess we will once again pull on our rubber boots and wade through the crap that calls itself politics. It is hard to find any one person out there who I think would do a good job as president. The republicans are at there best showing us how out of touch they are with normal Americans. Every now and again one of them will say something pertinent but when we look at there track record we see it is once again all talk to get our vote. They are for the most part different from the current president only in the size of there ego. Then there is the current president, and his imperial reign of ‘change’. He definitely got that saying right… Just last week he decided to save money by downsizing the military. A great move when half of the world wants to see us dead. I am sure he will go on to say how great a move it was saving the billions of dollars by cutting the number of men in the military, when he could have just cut some of the billions in funding for new weapons. What good is it to have state of the art weapons when there are no troupes to use them? OR how about his Imperial decree’s, (aka executive orders), to appoint new people to what are supposed to be congressionally appointments.

Maybe we could save the billions by eliminating congress….

I hope he doesn’t read my blog

    Pete,

    Happy New Year to everbody!

    He hasn’t got time to read your blog; he wouldn’t understand it anyway; makes too much sense! LOL!

    If he wants to cut spending, give up those separate trips him & the 1st lady take when they go on vacations every month!

    Have a good day while we still can.

    Can he read? They can just stop giving themselves raises and hiring more people to take care of them…and live like the “normal” people of the country and we wouldn’t be in depth anyhow. Plus if he’d stop giving our money to other countries….it would help. Also if he really wants (ha ha) the country to be going better, just give 100,000 back to all the tax payer’s and they’d paid alot of their bills and then the other companies wouldn’t be broke, cause……………………………. But as if that is goina happen.
    Sorry afraid the !!! will be re-elected, cause he is buying votes right and left..by giving money to big companies, they will give some back to him so that he can do it again.
    Yeah change….dumb & dumber, scary…etc.
    But take heart and keep on trucking, its all we can do.
