Parody

This is a start-up business that I’m planning. If you feel down and out because you haven't reached your desired monthly income from your writing yet or your stats are in the tank, I can help put you on that golden mountain top of success. If your story has yet to be set for further distribution on this platform, it can be fixed too.

How can I do this? I’m a big follower of John Taffer (Bar Rescue) and Robert Irvine (Restaurant Impossible), and I’ll be using their format to solve my clients’ problems. I’ll be live-streaming so that a…

Climate change is undeniable, and a genuine threat to the environment and can cause human extinction. The United States is one of the very largest countries globally, and we certainly contribute a large portion of greenhouse gases into the Earth’s atmosphere. The United States pulled out of the Paris climate accord on November 4, 2020, which was 1 day after the 2020 Presidential election of Trump. This event moved the possibility of human extinction closer to reality. For humanity to survive, Jeff Bezos would have had to build an enormous fleet of bigger size phallic-shaped ships to evacuate all of…


Theoretical

Remarkably, I have been declared fit and functional enough to live among society. Obviously, someone, somehow, and somewhere has dropped the proverbial ball. My theory is that the unknown scientists want to release me into society like a bioweapon to study the effects on people and the environment. Oh well, live and let live as people say.

Fair warning to all. I often display questionable behavior.

I stare blankly at people who wave hello at me.

When people talk to me, I often answer with “Huh?” or “What?” ending the conversation.

I don’t recall the name of the person speaking…

The world of politics has always fascinated most of humankind. It draws us in because it has all the elements of a Shakesperian play. Politics very much involves power, intrigue, revenge, ego, wealth, and entitlement. There is drama in politics because politics affect the quality of life, the environment, and health of a village, town, city, state, and country. It also affects how different countries get along with each other in a global community sense. Politics has been in existence since early humanity climbed down from the trees and began to walk upright.


HUMOR

I have nothing against the exploration of outer space. In fact, I’ve spent almost 25 years in the aerospace industry working under federal contracts for NASA and the Air force. I’ve worked in Cape Canaveral, Florida, Vandenberg Air Force Base, Ca., Hawaii Tracking Station, and even Thule Air force Base, Greenland. Thule is located 800 miles south of the North Pole. A lovely place with 6 months of 24-hour daylight and 6 months of 24-hour night. I got to know the Inuit people and the polar bears very well. I must admit that getting used to the winter storms of…

There is one thing about night lights that annoy the heck out of me. They shine their light only on the floor or on the wall outlet that they are plugged into. They work well if you only want to see about 1 foot from the wall outlet; beyond that, you will be stumbling and banging your knees on things because you can’t see. My toes are all gnarly looking from being fractured over decades of stubbing them on different parts of furniture. I have to walk in the dark sideways like some damn crab to protect my little piggies!


LIFE

Picking up the pieces of my life

The year 2020 was a terrible year for everyone in the United States due to the Covid-19 epidemic. It was made worst for my family and me because right after Thanksgiving, we received a call from the property management company of our home rental that our property will be listed for sale by the owner. The owner wanted to cash in on the seller’s market, which is trending up in real estate value due to the lower interest mortgage rates on home loans. The owner said that we were outstanding tenants and that…

Technology is improving all the time and is helping make our lives better and more manageable. I feel that not all technological advances are necessary and some are not as useful as it seems. Some technology is all bells and whistles and pretty lights and of no value.

Here is one example, Garmin announced that it is adding a new feature to its fitness tracker smartwatch. This new feature will allow your watch to monitor the course of your pregnancy as you progress in this joyful endeavor of creating new life.

Your Garmin will display your baby’s progress as text…

There is a plant vine that appears in farmlands across America every year at this time. The vine’s fruit is insidious because it is highly addictive to a significant portion of our society. This fruit infests our food, drink, cosmetics, and, is used for decoration.

The fruit of this nefarious vine comes in every shape, color — or multicolor — and size. These variations ensure that this fruit will attract and please most humans. I sometimes think that it may have come from outer space! We humans have given this fruit a strange name. We call them “pumpkins.”

These pumpkins…


Post Election 2020

The days following the news media announcement that Joe Biden has won the Presidential election, 2/3rd of the country broke out in jubilation while 1/3 became furious. Trump announced that they stole re-election from him because of massive fraud by the Democrats — in spite of no actual evidence.

Trump supporters assembled at the election centers in the states that were still legally counting the votes to protest and create chaos. They brought along with them their hate, false accusations, guns, and American flags — a lot of flags. Somehow, during his time in office, our flag came to be…
