The Extent of Our Sorrow

As tears disappearing in the rain, so short is our time on this Earth. Why then do some of us want to make it shorter still? Why, in that short amount of time, is there so much sorrow for some? Could it be that without the pain we could not know the joy of being truly alive? These are merely the musings of a worn out, heart-broken old man. Will I ever know the answers to these questions? Are any of us meant to know? Untill next time...

Well, well, here we are! America has a new president. Will he work for the "common man", or will he line the pockets of the rich man? We will see come January. Untill then, Mr. Obama, untill then!

In other news, I am still babysitting for the grandkids. I had them every day last week, including Sunday, as their mom and dad had to work! It seems like they teach me something new every day. The little grandson(age 4 yrs.) is now so adept at handling my computer that I am not afraid to let him go it alone! He cannot read yet, but he manages just fine. Just the other day he told me some words that were on-screen. Pretty good for a little guy like him.

I have tried to teach him a few words. I think he "reads" them purely by memory. Oh well, any landing you can walk away cool boys and girls!

Ass-Kissing 101

I would first like to say "hi" to a new follower, Liz in Virginia. Hi, Liz! Now, you must remember, I am an old Biker, so it can get rough in here sometimes. Having said that, welcome aboard.

I am currently TRYING to read a book entitled "Plan of Attack", by Bob Woodward. If that name sounds familiar, he also wrote some other books, most notably "All the President's Men", back in the 1970's. It was all about the Nixon involvement in the Watergate breakins. I say I am trying to read this book because it is so hard to see a once-great author sink to this level!

Mr. Woodward has his nose so far up George Bush's ass, he should check on the health of the man's colon! Nowhere in the book does Mr. Bush do any wrong! I just don't understand HOW the media can never fault this man!(Bush) How many more of our young soldiers must die for Mr. Bush to be vindicated for starting this endless war? How many more American lives are worth the oil we get? I say not one! I would rather WALK than waste another young American life in Iraq!

Five years into this war, and there is no end in sight. This was bound to happen! Did Vietnam teach us nothing? Did the war in Afghanistan that Russia waged for just over ten years teach us nothing? Every day I watch the news, and they up-date the number of Americans lost in the war. Every day I curse George Bush a little more. It does no good, but I do it anyway.

And today we elect a new president.....or do we? We all recall how Mr. Bush got in office. With lying and cheating. Am I the only one to find something strange in the fact that the only state in the Union to have "ballot problems" in the 2000 election was Florida? The state where Mr. Bush's BROTHER was,and still is, the governor? Hmmm, kind of makes you wonder?

Still Crap

I still hate this new site. The actual problem is that I hate change, most men do. If it weren't for the fact that I hate change, I would have already walked out on my wife! She deserves no special treatment, as what she did was unforgivable. I will never forve her, nor will I forget.

On a lighter note...oh, wait, there is no lighter note, as she destroyed my life! I am now stuck with a woman that I will never trust again! "Damaged Goods" is all that she good to me.
