The Ties That Bind

RELIGION



Religion is the glue that hold society together; it also keeps it S-O-S; "Stuck-on-stupid!"

Yesterday, all my troubles seemed so far away.

NOW IT LOOKS AS IF THEY ARE HERE TO STAY...


Tomorrow, and tomorrow, and tomorrow, creeps in this petty pace from day to day, to the last syllable of recorded time;
And all our yesterdays have lighted fools
the way to dusty death. Out, out, brief candle!
Life's but a walking shadow, a poor player
That struts and frets his hour upon the stage
And then is heard no more.
Homer (as Macbeth)

Mom used to say, "Enough is enough; too much will make a dog sick!"




#ME (the flock) Too



This shit has gotten out of hand.

Quick digression into history; 20 years ago I was involved in a custody case over my child with his biological mother. As a means to gain her ends, she reported to the police that I “Threatened” her. I was arrested on Domestic Violence charges; I fought this and was eventually found “Innocent” (not ‘Not Guilty’, IN-NO-CENT!).

When Bio-Mom failed to gain traction with that stunt, she decided upon another move, in open court, she stood up and screamed, “He raped me!”

The Magistrate rolled his eyes, the Prosecutor sighed out loud and, there was an audible groan from the table of the Children’s Services workers; everyone there knew she was full of shit and went forward as if they didn’t even hear her.

But, she had won – after court was over that day, I called her lawyer and told her that if she and her client were that low as to try to ruin an individual’s life, it was not worth it to fight that custody battle.

Fast-forward ten years, the wheels come off the wagon at Bio-Mom’s house and Children’s Services again take custody of her children; she now runs smack dab into the faces of people at Children’s Services who have known her for better than twenty years, my child was placed with me.

Skip forward another three year (in which she hasn’t laid eyes the child), she wakes up one morning with “Hell in her” and travels 100 miles to where I live and, makes a claim of sexual improprieties surrounding the child – this in effort to regain custody.

After a thorough investigation covering 6 months, her claims were judged to be specious, unsubstantiated and, without merit; her custody request was denied and, for good measure, I was given a 5 year Order-of-Protection (which she ignored), any contact with us would have caused her to be arrested.

I bring this up only because, I know what it is to be caught up in someone’s agenda and be falsely accused and have to defend your honor and fight for your freedom, liberty and, justice.

Misuse of this #Me-Too sentiment / I’m a victim shit is going too far.

Personal Rant


Can you hear me now?


It really "tries my nerves" to try to communicate with someone with a *Free* / Cheap cell phone that came with the pay-as-you-go plans. The plans from Boost, MertoPCS and Cricket, the ones that are "Lifelines" dangling from the main Cell Phone providers.


There is an issue with audio quality with those phones and, typically, they are provisioned for lower "quality" connections with fallback to 2G-EDGE networks.

I find myself TALKING LOUDLY as if I'm trying to communicate with a deaf person because their phone is breaking up; no, it isn't me, I try to call those people back on a different line and still get bad results!

It's analogous to the Men's' razor model: They give you the handle and, you have to return to buy the blades to fit the razor handle; wanna be cheap, they make "Disposable Razors" especially for those with, DISPOSABLE skin on their faces and / or heads! They give you the phones and you have to use their service.

I implore *You* to do better; upgrade to better phones, please.

Compassion or Co-Dependency?

As seen on Facebook



This really struck a chord with me when I read it because, I could only imagine how many unfulfilled lives there are out there with the same aspirations that were never met or achieved because they didn't get what they "deserved."
