OBSERVATIONS & OPINIONS: I NEED HELP TO UNDERSTAND

I need someone, a Trump supporter, to explain what I hear from President Trump.

I just heard him state, “Nobody knew that heath care could be so hard.” In all honesty, I wish he had called me for I knew.

For you supporters, please explain another statement which radically differs what he said during the campaign that if he were elected he would change ‘Obamacare’ in a week, a day or maybe an hour.

Someone tell me that I am wrong after examining the facts.

CLIMATE CHANGE

Pennsylvania, thunderstorms in February, and climate change is a myth.

When will we wake up?

I only hope it is before it is too late.

Perhaps it already is.

OBSERVATIONS OPINIONS:THE PRESENT

Is it any wonder that the novel by George Orwell, 1984, has recently become a best seller?

PRESIDENTIAL QUESTIONS

President Trump,

Would you object to someone grabbing Melania’s pussy?

Have you thought of or grabbed Ivanka’s pussy?

I understand you think Ivanka is hot.

THE FUTURE

My daughter, Lynn, is marching on Saturday.

She is an great daughter and outstanding person.

Just recognized by the USDA as a woman farmer, she is making her mark in the world.

Let’s hope her generation gets involved to make this country and world a better place.

And takes notes for the future.

OBSERVATIONS & OPINIONS: WHAT IS OUR FUTURE?

There was a time when I viewed the news on both Fox and MSNBC. I saw reports on both stations concerning the same incident. And by their reporting, I could not believe they were discussing the same issue. I have come to realize, in this day and age with so many channels available, you can select your source of facts and hear what you what to hear, what fits your view of life.

I’ve stopped listening to the news.

I should be using this blog to tell of my writing success. Unfortunately, if I depended on my career news, this blog would cease to exist. I should be writing articles to help other writers be published. That will come soon, I promise.

Now, back to the purpose of this article.

As I stated at the beginning, in this day and age a vast amount of reporting is slanted. You can hear what you want to hear without facts getting in the way. But with almost everyone able to record what is happening around them and countless cameras observing our lives there is the opportunity to record the raw truth. However, it is easy to alter photos and videos. It comes to a point ‘what do you believe’?

 As an aside, I chuckle when someone decides to rob a convenience store and there are enough photos of the event to fill a family album.

 To prove my point on video alteration, I saw a video on UTUBE of a propane leak and people were leaving their cars and running down the highway to safety, then the massive explosion came. I also saw the same video again, but this time there was a flying saucer in the sky and the world was under attack. Both presented as fact.

I have seen, granted in a news source known to report the news fitting their agenda, videos of protests occurring in North Carolina which, in all honest, scared the shit out of me. Protests where freedom of speech was denied by the authorities and arrests were made of whom ever made the effort to voice their opinion. I felt as if I was watching a movie in which a foreign government or calculated purpose was taking over our country. I could not believe this was my home. I don’t think these were altered, but once or twice in the last 69 years I’ve been wrong. This is to provide a bit of levity. We all need a bit of laughter these days, and a spoon full of sugar.

A HORROR LEGEND IS GONE

I should have posted this piece on Halloween night, but better late than never.  I feel this small piece of horror history needs to be shared.

As a writer of horror, I look to the roots of my addition.  The source which first opened the world of horror to me has just died at the age of 98.  At least they think he died.

He was one of the elements which first opened the world of horror to me.  He was Zacherly, the host of a late-night Saturday show centered on classic horror movies.  If you didn’t live in the Philadelphia, New Jersey, the New York area, you probably have never heard of him.

Born John Zacherle in 1918, he provided all the original classic horror movies.  Frankenstein, Dracula, The Mummy and the Invisible Man among others.  If the movie he was showing was not a classic, but a cheesy effort, he would interrupt the film to make comments or insert his image into the film.

During breaks he would camp it up standing in the coffin of his wife, stake pierced.  Also, he would talk to Gasport, a potato sack containing who knows what hanging on the wall.  Only Zacherly could understand what this sack said, which I found out from Zacherle’s obituary was his son.  Go figure.

Another activity, often perused by this ghoulish host, was brain surgery.  The brains looking very much like cauliflower.  I hesitate to speculate who these brains belonged to, but it is tempting.

I was a teenager when this was all happening.  Offered by Zacherly was a passport to Transylvania.  Of course I sent away for one.  With a bright red cover, it was a cherished possession.  It was lost before I had a chance to use it.

A legend is gone.  I hope he lives on in reruns, or that murky world where horror meets reality.
