Yesterday, all my troubles seemed so far away.


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.

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.
