The Un-visible

Trump is what America needed to understand the failure of a democratic society when we don’t get involved as concerned citizens.

Observations

The plight of the homeless continues to be ignored by those who live in a world where day to day necessities such as a place to eat, bathe, and sleep is not a concern to the way their lifestyle in any way or form. Those people, for the most part, chose to live in those conditions, therefore, it’s not my problem, and I definitely do not want those people in my neighborhood or anywhere near it. It becomes almost a necessity to be able to ignore those who have all of their meager belongings piled high in shopping carts “borrowed” for the local major grocery chains never to be returned to the owner.

The police who used to enforce “vagrancy” laws in the past now ignore the homeless unless they do something to get arrested. Today as I rode my bike in Oxnard, California. I saw people living in the…

The Walking Dead

Things are much worse because of Covid-19

Observations

There is a article in today’s LA Times about the deaths of the homeless on the streets of skid row.They say at least three deaths occur daily with little notice by the general public or our elected officials. When we die we are buried away from the living. The living dead of the mentally ill and those who for a myriad of reasons find themselves living on the streets and back alleys of America with no way out of the misery of their daily lives are on the same level of those who are dead and buried, and at some point in time forgotten from the memory of man.

The homeless become invisible in the minds of those who are productive members of society or most importantly willing and able to work for a living because that is what improves our individual financial situations.Those who for whatever reasons they choose…

Caravanserai

Observations

The long dangerous journey now being undertaken by thousands of migrants from Central America and beyond continues towards the U.S. with no let up in sight.  The president has ordered the Nation Guard to the border to support the Border Patrol in their mission to secure the border. This act has only made the migrants more encouraged to continue moving North. They have only to reach the border and ask for asylum because they cannot be refused access to an immigration judge which could take years due to the current backlog of cases on file. America being a country of laws has no choice but to do what The president said about Obama “catch and release.” There are no borders for those who are forced to leave theirs homes to survive. Refugees become citizens of the world. Wherever you lay your hat is home becomes your mindset for survival.

The Air

Observations

There is something in the air affecting societies all over the world. There is anger and rage due to the failure of  governments across the globe to show any concern for their citizens. Europe has been overran by people fleeing poverty and war. America’s southern border is under constant assault by people leaving failed governments in South America. The citizens of the countries that are affected are starting to show anger to those who are different from themselves who are seeking a better life anyplace that will accept them.

Infiltrators, illegals, migrants, asylum seekers no matter what title is used these are human beings with literally nothing but the clothes on their backs. America has a serious problem with the homeless in this country that is shameful to say the least. In Los Angeles there are now thousands of people living on the streets in one of the richest cities in California…

Coronavirus

The virus has disrupted the lives of most people who now inhabit the earth. It will now change the way we interact with others until further notice. This include the wearing of masks when we are out in pubic places. The mask is now the great equalizer when it comes to how we face the world on a daily basis. Those who might have facial features that might cause unwanted attention can now blend in with society as equals.

There is plenty of anger and uncertainty across America because of the fact that those in charge do not have the ability to lead the country through this mess. The racial, and economic divide that is on display daily in the media for the whole world to see. Europe has put a ban on Americans who want to travel there even though they need those tourist dollars. When I look at commercials on the television it’s like looking into the past. It appears that all of human behavior that involves close contacts with others.

Six feet apart wear a mask or you will be six feet down in the earth. That is a hard fact to accept. I for one am waiting for the day I can accept wearing the wearing of a mask and not being bothered by seeing others with masks on their faces. America will have a tough road ahead trying to work out the problem of racial inequality in jobs and especially housing with forty million plus people out of work in the last three months things will surely get ugly when the evictions and foreclosures start again.

Reparations for four hundred years of work for no pay must be addressed by the people who benefited from that labor. That is a subject for another time.

Angel Of Death

The Coronavirus has changed lives we once took for granted forever. We as human beings will have to survive in a world where close physical contact with others of our species its verboten. God help us.

2020 Vision

The decade of the 20’s has begun with little fanfare by a society that is eagerly looking forward to the future, and all the possibilities that can exist moving forward. The numbers 2020 for some reason to me at least gives me a sense of peace for reasons I cannot explain. The world we now inhabit has not really changed in the thousands of years of human history that came before us. The attitudes and behaviors of modern society can be justified by our individual DNA profiles. Our life experiences confirms this reality on a daily basis.

The new year always gives one a chance to look forward to the year ahead with a clean slate mentally. This is a once a year gift that a lot of us waste because we a not mentally ready to accept it. The Catholic church has confession clause where you can say I have sinned and be forgiven by a priest on a regular basis, and then you are mentally free to make the same mistakes over and over again.

The bottom line is we all need the use the power of our minds to forgive most importantly ourselves and anyone we believe have may have done us wrong in the past. This a God given power we all possess, and should not waste on trivial matters.

Our lives are all on the count-down clock from the moment of our conception to our eventual demise. That is something we all need to remember on a daily basis.

Betrayal

The president’s decision to pull all American military forces out of Syria may be the first part of a plan to bring our troops back in the future in an attempt to clean up the mess he has created. This will surely be at a cost of lives and treasure one cannot imagine at this point in time. We betrayed the then south vietnamese people at the end of that useless war. I remember watching people hanging on the landing skids of the last helicopters leaving the Saigon embassy as the NVA soldiers claimed final victory over the American “invaders.”

America did the right thing by allowing thousands of allies and their families to immigrate to this country to at least make up for that act of betrayal many years ago. The current administration has no plan to do anything similar to help the Kurds especially after signing the anti-muslim ban. America is giving up its leadership role in the middle east for reasons only known to the president and his inner circle. Tho only other country we can count on in that unstable part of the world is Israel and they should be concerned when we are sending more troops to defend Saudi Arabia in case of a future military conflict in that part of the world.

The story of possible impeachment of our president and to kick him out of office opens the door for Mike Pence to be our next president. The future of our country is on the line especially on the world stage. We have to do better than this for those who will follow us in the future.

Trump’s Tower Of Babble

The Trump Dynasty

Observations

This president’s struggle to maintain the current status of his administration which is under constant attack from the Democrats for more information about his contacts with leader of Russia after becoming president. Thirty-seven is the number of people who are now under investigation or on their way to prison for involvement with this man is testimony to the power of corruption in Washington politics and those who are elected to serve the American people. The desire for more power in the Oval Office is nothing new here. In the early 1900’s barely contained by the constitutional limits of his executive powers, Teddy Roosevelt boasted he “caused to be done many things not previously done by the President,” This president’s call for a national emergency to get around Congress to obtain funds for his border wall is just a modern version of that attitude.

It seems that history does at some…
