I’m sensing a pattern here…

earthThe Black Death. The Spanish Flu. Ebola. Swine flu. H1N1. Now, Corvid-19.

The planet is warming. This results in coastal flooding, and storms more ferocious and frequent than in the past.

World leadership is trending towards idiocy and greed. Whole groups ignoring science and reality.

I think I know what’s happening.

The Earth is trying to kill us.

Sometime during the fall of the Roman Empire, Mother Nature probably noticed the naked apes were getting a bit problematic. The first attempts to thin the heard were only partially successful, even though the Black Death was staggering in it’s swath across Europe. The only thing the apes liked doing more than killing each other was making more apes, and as soon as they were able, they went right back to those pass-times.

As time went on, the crazy ones led their troops to war, and millions died. But still they made more.

Now, with another pandemic sweeping the planet, what do the apes do? Hoard toilet paper and bottled water. Some of them even claim there’s no threat, and continue to act in ways to make the problem worse, all the time screaming “FAKE NEWS!”

So now the Earth is raising it’s temperature, and mutating flu virus’ as fast as it can, hoping to save itself and whatever other life can hang on.

We can hardly blame it.

Still here…

I hadn’t realized it had been so long since I posted! I’m still around, settling into retirement, and getting used to the new normal. As such, I’ve not been motivated to post any blogs, but I hope that will change soon. In the meantime, be sure you’re registered, and vote!

Time for my annual Christmas story. It’s 1971, and 14 year old JimmieJoe gets a Christmas surprise!

Time for my annual Christmas story.

Best Christmas Ever – 1971
I wrote this back in 2007, for my personal blog on MySpace.
******
We were telling Christmas stories at work the other day, and I told my “best Christmas ever” story.  After I told it, I thought it might make a good blog, so here it is.

The location: Visalia California, the house on Divisadero Street, just down the block from the junior high I attended (now called a “Middle School” for reasons known only to the bureaucracy of schools).

The year:  1971   8th grade  Jim is 14 and knows Santa’s secret identity.
Top item on the Christmas wish list:  A 10-speed bike.

I had spent MONTHS hinting, suggesting, begging, pleading, and pretty much making a pest of myself asking for a new 10-speed.  Each time it came up, the parents made it clear that they were just too…

I hear he’s bought himself a bright red Corvette, and has an adorable little place in Key West for the off season. Rumor also has it that he’s house hunting in Palm Springs, just to change things up now and then!

Happy Holidays!

Hey, Donald Trump! You just killed the most wanted terrorist in the Middle East! What are you going to do now?

“I’m going to the World Series!”

You heard what happened then, right?

If he wasn’t one of the biggest scumbags on the planet, I might feel a wee bit sorry for him.

But he is, so I don’t.

Melania seemed like she was having a good time, though.

“Lock him up. Lock him up.”

Batter up!

Help me go “Over The Edge”!

Alternating Currents

IMG_8417

Last November I went “Over The Edge”, from the 8th floor of the Marriott Hotel in Visalia. It was a fund raising event for The Source LGBT+ Center of Tulare and Kings Counties.

The crew at The Source had so much fun “throwing the 9-1-1 dispatcher off the roof” that they want to do it again, and I’m game. There’s only one problem, though.

We have to raise $1,000 to do it.

I’m at $790 at the moment, and it’s down to three weeks before the event, November 9, 2019.

I need YOUR help!

Please go >> here << and donate on my account! Small or large, every donation helps, and they’re tax deductible. You can also donate through Facebook, at this link.

The Source LGBT+ Center (Facebook page here) is an important resource for the lesbian, gay, bi-sexual, and transgender communities here in Tulare and Kings…

AR-15 (2) One thing you can count on, in the battle to get assault weapons off the streets of America, gun owners, specifically those who own (or wished they owned) the AR-15 will fight to the death… to make sure you know AR *doesn’t* mean ‘assault rifle’.

Now, they have a point. AR stands for the original manufacturer from back in the 50’s, Armalite Rifle. This fixation, however, on what the AR stands for is a bit disingenuous, given their penchant for screaming “CONFISCATION!!!!” any time anyone proposes a restriction or buy-back plan.

The Colt AR-15 is an assault rifle, though. Who says so? Colt says so, that’s who.

snidely-whiplash Oh that Trump administration…

“Hmmmm…  we’ve been unable to nail Hillary on anything! ANYTHING! Curses, foiled again!”

*lightbulb*

“I know! We’ll retroactively classify material that was sent in routine State Department and government emails, and start harassing people about having classified information on their computers!!!  Bwahahahahaha!”

Stunned career official (SCO): “But how does that make sense? Why would we do that? How does that become Hillary’s fault??”

Trump appointee (TA): “Because these emails ended up with her, so anyone who sent them is guilty, too! Since she had classified material on unsecured computers, SHE’S GUILTY! AND SO ARE THEY! Bwahahahahaha!!”

SCO: “That makes no sense! You can’t retroactively classify materials that were unclassified, then harass people about them!”

TA: “Watch us.”

Fox News: NEWSFLASH!  Classified emails! Hillary! Benghazi!

MAGAts: “SEE!!! WE TOLD YOU!!! LOCK HER UP!!!!!!!!!!”

Trump: “NO COLLUSION, TOTAL EXONERATION, WITCH HUNT, BIDEN!”

Everybody else: “WTF?”

Vladimir Putin: “Bwahahahahaha”

Update: Taliban deny Camp David Tweet by Trump
