Straightjacket Talk #879

A strange thing is happening with the political tug and pull of Republican versus Democrat. I don't know if anyone is paying attention. You see...I believe if the RNC does not support Donald Trump and let him run a fair Republican race, then his threat of a third party candidacy occurs or something else comes to fruition, you can expect the US will hand the election over to Hillary Clinton, thus dividing and diluting the Republican votes.  Does this scare anyone?

Whether you love or hate any candidate, they deserve a fair race. Didn't we see the same sabotage and eating of our young when Mitt Romney ran?

Divide and conquer. Democrats are smiling at this circus act.

Hillary has not even run a race yet, displaying yet more of her crazy problems and lack of transparency and she might win? It is no joke that the parties need to get their poop in a group and I can't believe after so many years that the Republicans have sat around with their thumbs up their asses. STILL.

What is going on? Where are the orderlies?

Moving along to some non-related news...It hurts my head as much as the police shootings rise along with the abundance of citizen ignorance out there. I had no idea so many people just don't understand the basics of law enforcement, rules, law and order, and have gone bull to the china closet that the rules don't apply to everyone. The words they spew! Social media has really watered down our intelligence and common sense. I have been guilty of this a time or two and when I comment on a news thread, I try to have my poop in a group.

But what do you read out there? You read a lot of discourse and disconnection. You read a lot of negativity. People just are not happy and it exudes nation wide on all threads dealing with any news reel. It doesn't matter what kind of news it is, there are angry people out there. What has happened?

Is everyone off their meds? At once?

Businesses are bottle necked and afraid of even opening the doors due to boycotts, lawsuits, on controversial statement, etc. Am I defending all these actions which have led to businesses losing everything due to being accused of discrimination, hate, or mouthing off about cops? No. I'm just saying you must be very careful anymore or one sentence or one action can end your livelihood and that is very scary.

I feel the courts are banging their heads with all the lawsuits.  One state court rules this way and another that way.

What is wrong? What is right? We can't even all agree on that.

Excuse me, sir, may I buy that white jacket with the shiny buckles?

Education is such a mess, I think we could all get educated just fine off of Rosetta Stone and ACME U. Yeah that.

Have we focused so much on coddling and entitlement that we now have created a super bug of sorts in the minds of our youth? Some citizens want you to believe there are rules, but they want to choose how they are applied or how you conduct your business or how you educate my child. Sure. We should all be informed, but should we dictate that Little Johnny gets a green book instead of a yellow book even though he is at the same reading level as the others? Should Little Johnny be allowed to have his parents at his college advising meetings although he is an adult and there are FERPA laws and HIPPA laws? Does he now give proxy to his mother?

Liberals are abundant in academia and they are afraid of their liberal students. I shit you not.

Nurse! Nurse! I want red jello not the lime kind!

And we still have not really moved forward with discrimination issues with gays and race. How long before we iron out the kinks and trod on, America? Now we have so muddied the water with Muslim issues, immigration, and banking?

Doc! Hey! Could you tighten these straps? Thanks.

So because all of this US disruption (I will refer to it as IN-fighting) is sensory overload-is  the answer sought out by our youths to shoot up everything? For our government to allow terrorist acts to go to committee before we act? What happened to our president's military leadership? Do we just shout out on social media and let our voices whither with the newsfeed rolling to the bottom? Where is the action?

The bars are too small in my room. I need to talk to someone about that.

I feel the cops are now being played in a real live video game defending their six, having to focus on a 360 degree turn. Do the youth really think you have extra life and phone a friend works? I guess at least I can still have fun trying to disperse some common sense on news outlets on Facebook. Come on...let's all get millennial and try out some of that instant gratification with likes and replies!

Chaos is unfolding.

I am a unicorn!

I think the Lousiana thingy sounds like a murder suicide thingy. Possibly. News is unfolding. Minute by minute. Gosh. Can you imagine if we had to go back to the old way? Eek. We might have time to report and absorb the facts. What would that be like?

Heck with world problems, let's fix America first.

At least I get a nice TV and internet in my room.  That is standard or I will sue.

What are you doing about it?

Do we have solutions? Workable ideas?

I know. I'm going to open a bottle of wine. It's all I got. It's workable.

You betcha I'm into smuggling contraband. Duh. Don't worry. We made it in the kitchen.

Man, I bet someone out there blames this all on Bush. He is so powerful and reminds me of the Tazmanian devil mixed with Pig Pen from the Peanuts. I mean, really, that's an accomplishment. Sigh.

Sorry, SQUIRREL! I think I see Tammy Faye...I am going to ask about makeup tips.

What The Erpie Derp?

What the erpie derp? 

When Trump talks and before any words come out, I know it is going to be a record scratch moment. The latest might be the end. I don't know. I know by his body language, and the change of tone in his voice, he was making a big stab back at McCain, but ended up blanketing all captured veterans into an insult.

My liberal friends are pretty sure he is working for Hillary and that is why she is on radio silence as not to slip in the media. Who knows? Could be on to something there.

Now, McCain fired back. But...McCain is very gratious in his statement:

Sen. John McCain said billionaire Donald Trump should apologize to military service members and their families after his comments on troops held captive during war.
"I don’t think so,” McCain said today when asked whether Trump owes him an apology in an interview on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.” “But I think he may owe an apology to the families of those who have sacrificed in conflict and those who have undergone the prison experience in serving our country.
"So many men and some women who served and sacrificed and happened to be held prisoner and somehow to denigrate that in any way their service I think is offensive to most of our veterans.
"When Mr. Trump said that he prefers to be with people who are not captured. Well the great honor of my life was to serve in the company of heroes. I’m not a hero,” McCain, 78, added.
The comments set off a firestorm in the Republican Party with many condemning Trump's comments and at least one candidate, Texas Gov. Rick Perry, calling for him to drop out of the race. McCain said that decision is up to Trump himself.
"I think that’s a decision that he will have to make. Again what I think he should do is apologize to the families and those who have served," McCain said. "The proudest moments of their lives was serving in the company of heroes and those are the people he should apologize to."
Trump has said he does not think he owes McCain an apology for his comments.

Why yes. I am yelling in CAPS AND SYMBOL CURSING. I am pissed about that. There is nothing else to say except I am disgusted no executive order was issued. What? Did Obama run out of them? I thought they were endless.)(*#&$)#(*$&)@(#*$&)@#*(

What the erpie derp?

So Murphy and Oliver were running around like maniacs in what I classify as The Red Furball. It's a blur of red fur in a ball like sensation. Drives me nuts. It usually lasts about 5-10 minutes and then they stop. I can't interrupt it. I have tried. They don't care. They keep going as soon as I stop them. If I let it play out...then it stops.

Well, it just so happens all of a sudden I saw Murphy running around by himself. Where is Oliver? No one could find him. Yeah. Bastard was on top of the kitchen table and couldn't get down. I was SOOOOO pissed. It happened twice. He gets so wired up and leaps all over the place then found solace on the table while Murphy raced around like an idiot.

Kids. Grr.

What the erpie derp?

Obama's new plan is to keep guns out of the hands of those on social security? Can you say HOLY SHIT, BATMAN, what a breach of the 2nd Amendment. What makes him think it is a good idea to take guns away from the retired and disabled? My head hurts. Mostly from hitting my desk.

What the erpie derp?

Apparently, Rachel Dolezal did not like fading out of the news like her skin color. White is the new black. She made a recent statement, " I did not deceive anybody." Gurl, what do you think deception is? Fuck me in the ass. Head cases. Erg.

Changes By JL Curtis

Long overdue are some words about  the new book in They Grey Man series, Changes, by JL Curtis. I must say I have enjoyed the series very much. First, it's about great cops and nasty criminals. What a great combination. You will get drawn up in the details Curtis puts on every page. It's all about law enforcement and action, with a little western flare. So how could you not like it?

During the high drama moments, though, Curtis gets a little brazen with his characters and puts them at risk often. Sometimes it is grave. John Cronin has managed to make it through when the dust settles. Whew. I hate it when authors kill off the main character.

Changes involves more of Jesse, his granddaughter, and the Cartel's continual backlash which is relentless but realistic. She is married to her marine. I couldn't help but crack up when she met the women of the military wives. Talk about a fish out of water. Read how she tackles that. If you read the last book, you would remember Jesse was injured in an incident. I won't give any more details in case you are "one of those" who has not read it yet. Jesse hobbles around Changes recovering from injuries where Curtis had her in the line of fire. It was nail biting but she made it through. In the evolving storyline, she shows off her Cronin spirit and adds some new substance.

The book is full of thrills and action with excellent character details, expertise in combating crime, and some occasional humor-all wrapped up in the lives of some characters you will grow fond of reading. And then you will get attached to the series. Pick up Changes at Amazon. In fact, pick up all three if you have never read them. You won't be disappointed.

Bravo, Mr. Curtis! I await the next one...impatiently, of course!
