Humans infringe on Nature’s beauty
Loved that article by the Earth Lady on the bobcat in the Daily Journal on Oct. 11. What a beautiful animal! It is surely cute enough to make you want to tickle its tufted ears. Thank you. However, there is this unsettling subtext of man’s constant infringement on nature at every turn. We think ourselves to be the controller of this magnificent living, breathing, over changing yet ever remaining (seemingly) life-sustaining ball in space we call Earth.
There are serious consequences to ignoring the delicate balance of nature. We are now able to pursue extending life for man to 120 years. What a milestone of technological wizardry we have attained. Does it make sense to spend enormous amounts of resources on prolonging life beyond the natural end while killing the unborn (abortion) before it can begin? Should we remember that we are only stewards of this marvelous world and that Mother Nature will exact her dues?
Seven billion and counting require space, food and water to live and eventually there will be none. Today we have food fights. Tomorrow we will have fights for food. Just thinking.
The spirit of Obamacare resides with the demons
Democrats in Congress aren’t getting sufficient credit or recognition for the most significant legislation they passed in the Modern Era. Perhaps the “short” title of the “Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act” should be changed to the “Democrat Takeover of Medical Care Act”. Also the moniker “Obamacare” gives too much credit to a single individual who obviously didn’t read the legislation before he signed it. So in the spirit of where the act came from and to where it takes our country, perhaps the new moniker for the “Democrat Takeover of Medical Care Act” should be “Dem-onic Care.”
Think about it.

No defense merited for mess in Capitol
Seventy years ago, about mid-night on Columbus Day, I, along with a number of other young Americans, were struggling to cross an Italian mountain stream, the Volturno, 50 yards wide, neck-deep, and cold, with the added attraction of German machine-gun fire.
We were there, because we loved this country, and believed in the government that had sent us there. I spent more than two years over there, and in some difficult situations.
Today, I would not step across the smallest mud-puddle in the state in order to defend this mess in Washington, that we are forced to call the American government.
There are over 500 politicians, many, nothing more than selfish, greedy corporate shills, lounging on soft leather, who do not deserve the honor of being called, “The Congress of,We, the People.”
We are being ruled by an administration, that continually tromps our Constitution into the slime, and, one, which I believe will go down in the books, as the most corrupt administration in this nation’s history.
Recently, someone made the statement, online, “Our Forefathers, who gave us this Great Country, were geniuses. The people, now running this Great Country, are idiots” Amen.
