We are all lost in a sea of political nightmares ... This time of year comes packed with stories of the right and the left doing very bad things.

Democrats will link us posts on Facebook showing how evil Republicans are, the opposite takes place from our Republican friends, lambasting Democrats for their immoral acts.

There are people behaving badly on both sides of the aisle, and frankly I just don't care anymore.

I will vote this year as I do every year, but I just don't care who wins..

It will be the same thing next year and the year after that, we will have the same tired debates about taxes and government reform, spending, national, and foreign-policy. But the debate will constantly echo into infinity, the band will play on, and the balloons will drop over yet more conventions in presidential elections to come.. all the while no changes will occur to bring relief to the economic climate that has engulfed America..

Call me negative, or just say I'm realistic. Either way I believe that this political season was just like the last one and will be just like the next one.

I chuckle when I hear people saying "the political process is the worst it's ever been" or "I have never seen this negative of the campaign" .. Then you have not been paying attention. It has been this negative before and will be again, the best man has never won, and those who have any sense of honesty or decency so often or laughed out of Congress by the people, folders, who claim they want honesty and decency in government.

Chances are you never heard the name Cynthia McKinney. You should have, but chances are you won't even look her up after reading this...

So in that regard we may be the reason that nothing ever changes, the fact that we keep posting those hateful messages about the other party on Facebook but looking at her own with rose-colored glasses ignore all of the sins our own party commits..

We keep voting for the same people and expecting different results, leading me to conclude that there is some form of insanity at the heart of the American dollar

Negative advertising has always been around, mostly because of how effective it is and it's major getting people to vote. People respond to fear much more than hope.

We can lie to ourselves and say the opposite is true however, we know this: Many presidents would not have won an election without besmirching the character of the other person, and many candidates would never of been reelected unless they struck fear into the hearts of the voters especially in saying all those "dangerous" things the other guy would do. The 2002 election was a prime example of the primal fear used: Terror and war. Even this year, because it it's throughout the nation are using as a kid! He disease has now become a debatable topic in American politics..

So if you're ready to tell me I am wrong, save it. Like mentioned before I will vote. And that's about that, I will fulfill my civic duty and I will share my political ballot in the process. But I won't expect much in return, as a matter fact I will expect nothing but the contrary of what those who wins say they will do.

Twas always thus and always thus shall be..



STRANGER THINGS 2 looks incredible

The newest STRANGER THINGS 2 trailer hit on Friday the 13th .. amazing timing as always with the fine people at Netflix..

The excitement over this program is incredible. Not only are people re-watching and re-binging the first season in preparation, but there is an equal amount of re-watching and analyzing of the newest trailers..

Before discussion.. take a glance:

My initial thought: This is actually the weaker of the teasers and trailers for season 2.. Yes, I am inclined to wonder why Eleven is more androgynous  .. why she has more hair now and no one shaved it. why she is out of the upside down and eating Eggos in the normal world..

So many questions about her. But the trailer didn't pay much attention to her--I think on purpose. Instead we glimpsed into the post-pubescent boys and now new friends of another gender planning something, just as the world is being taken over by giant squid creatures from the upside down.

Not viewed at all? Mike's mom and dad. Barb..

Forgive me…


Yes, indeed.. a hurricane-ish type storm is about to hit Ireland..

Hurricane Ophelia is the 10th consecutive hurricane to form in the Atlantic basin this year. According to University of Miami hurricane expert Brian McNoldy, the last time ten consecutive storms became a hurricane was 1893. While a very interesting factoid, the "elephant in the room" is that Ophelia is headed to Ireland. It is rare, but not unprecedented.

There are a few interesting things about this.. First off, there have been really rare occasions that storms of this nature made it as far as Ophelia may..

Actually there have been only a handful in the past years since about, oh, 1851..

From 1851 to 2010, only 10 extratropical storms, typically the tail ends of tropical cyclones, have hit within 200 miles (322 kilometers) of Ireland....Hurricane Debbie was the only tropical hurricane to make landfall in that area, clipping the far northwest of the British Isles in 1961.

But this is 2017--the year that mayhem on …


Real news has become surreal.. I find many headlines of our current day to relate back to THE STAND.. I know the comparison is a little fuzzy, and my overdoing it may be annoying to some. But when the strange similarities to me are striking.. The STAND starts in Texas. And in real life Texas is the center stage for the Ebola scare. And even worse, the endless stories of people 'coming back to life' are getting bizarre--though we can assume that parts of Africa cannot truly pinpoint the cause of death, so somene coming back to life is moot: The person probably wasn't dead. At least we hope they weren't.. Though SNOPES can tell us it's a hoax, try to explain the high strangeness of ABC NEWS filming a dead man and suddenly seeing him moving..

Continuing to the real news of the day (though it seems like fiction half of the time), focus is now turning on how Thomas Duncan got inot the United States. The Washington POST is giving us an hour by hour synopsis of what happen…
