LIVING THE STORM

Just wanted to tell you folks that the descriptions of the storm the east coast is now living though are more than accurate.

I have had a self-standing basket ball net at the end of my driveway for perhaps 25 years hoping one of my girls might enjoy the game. Neither one did, and although my youngest is 5’11”, she is a farmer.

I’m telling this because, for the first time, this hoop has blown down. The wind and snow could produce a wealth of poems, but for the common man, is it a hassle to be handled.

I hope to produce more for this blog, but a lesson for the young. If you want a career in writing; START NOW. Age had a tendency to slow you down.

OBSERVATION & OPINIONS

WHEN WILL WE EVER LEARN

The recent tragedy in Florida should never have happened and the guilt is divided among many levels. The news speaks to this, I will not here.

To say this country’s desire of gun ownership and tolerance of the violence they cause is beyond comprehension. I’m not saying guns should be banned. The problem is determining who should be allowed to own them. That determination, as of now, is beyond the powers that be. To do this will take difficult decisions and our current government is not willing or able to make those decisions to protect our citizens.

I have come up with a solution.

Donate more money than the NRA is able to the campaigns of congressmen. If that is done change may be accomplished. The representatives of this country appear to put the continuation of their career before the welfare of the people they represent.

This is a sad situation, but I fear it is the truth.

OBSERVATIONS AND OPINIONS

WHAT HAPPENED TO THE CONSTITUTION?

It appears our President has the opinion that not supporting him is a treasonous act and un-American. Does anyone find this as frightening as I do?

I feel this opinion violates more than one part of our Constitution. What is happening to our country when the President, defender of the Constitution, has this opinion?

A LEGENDARY WRITER IS GONE

I’m sure all lovers of science fiction and fantasy know that Ursula K. Le Guin has left us at the age of 88 to explore the next plane.

I enjoyed reading her work and often thought her name could be a character in her writing.

I’ve enclosed a review of her life.

OPINIONS AND OBSERVATIONS

A CRY FOR HELP

 

I plead for someone to work to save our country.

I am heartbroken but what our country now represents with values lost from the past. This is not the country of life and freedom, with honor, protection and hope ad it was for all it’s citizens. It a land of gain and profit with no concern for the land’s future.

Please, someone save us from a future never meant for us.

A FRIGHTENING SIMILARITY

IMAGES OF HITLER

 

I first had this feeling whenever I saw Trump signing a new piece of legislation as all around him, Vic President Pence, Paul Ryan and others smiling and affirming their agreement, no matter

Dare they not?

I recall a meeting I once viewed of a meeting with Trump and his cabinet. Sitting around a table each member was given a chance to speak. The comments went around the table as each member present gave a glowing report of Trump’s presidency. Dare they do otherwise?

This recalled an image of Hitler. Reflections of his generals telling Hitler that all was fine as the world stumbled to chaos.

OUR NATION’S HEART WEEPS

I hesitate to write this piece. Knowing human nature I am sure many will write articles about the tragedy in Los Vegas to express sorrow but a hidden reason, perhaps hidden from themselves, is to draw attention. With this in mind I write this article, not to draw attention but to voice an attitude I don’t understand. Therefore, I am not including any taglines for this piece. I don’t

When Sandy Hook occurred resulting in the death of twenty six and seven year olds, I thought things may finally change. That the nation would wake up to a wrong some hold dear. I have nothing against hunting. But who hunts with a semi-automatic weapon. Handguns are used to protect one’s family. But who needs a semi-automatic pistol to protect that family. I don’t understand how anyone can purchase a mass amount of weapons and not raise a red flag.

As I hear the numbers of fatalities I think this is not a shooting, this is the result of a plane crash. Then when I hear the number of fatalities and wounded, I think, this is not a shooting, this is on the level of a natural disaster. Unfortunately, this disaster is all too natural in our country.
