I Got The Blues.....

My outlook on life has been radically changed over these last few years. The loss of my beloved Susan on April Fools Day 2009 didn't start it ... but certainly poured gas on it and struck the match .... burning through all positive indicators of my future. Obliterating the hope of a radical change in politics that I'd hoped the congress would at least do its duty and support the new President.

Also, the loss of the physical ability to continue my job as a cook (chef is so imperial sounding) added to my ever growing list of negatives. Fighting (yes, not just applying) for help via a social security disability claim for damn near two years has left me even more depressed. A condition known as Fibromyalgia (PAIN!!!) was added to my Diabetes and Asthma. Chronic Fatigue Syndrome had been dogging me for many years and was unexplained until recently.

Stuck in the house for 98% of the time... I've have been watching much more TV than ever that caused addiction to political shows starting during the 2008 Presidential Campaign and continues today with the crazy tea bagger supported rethuglican "newbies" in the house of representatives and Governers.

I understand we had a two party system for over a hundred years but that has changed. Right wingers signing Grover Norquist's pledge should just tear it up and refute the "not one penny of tax increase" horse shit that has congress and the President in a phony debt ceiling battle because they are adding on a ton of shit to it when it normally is considered house cleaning. A one line paper that usually took a show of hands in Congress because it was needed to pay for programs that had already passed the congress and needed to be paid for. you know, a couple wars,bailing out wall street and the banks, unemployment, and a bunch of other things.

Now they want money from social security (that pays for itself and when it has a bonus it lends it to the government (pay THAT back) and Medicare, that has exploded due to shitty medical expense explosion that must be brought under control.

Congress is REALLY broken this time. Bills that we have piled up for 12 years suddenly need to be payed for by senior citizens, school children, teachers, firemen, policemen, etc., etc., etc.?

Do I need to move to another country? Do you? I got the blues....BIG TIME!!!

Gotta Revolution!!

This blog was about blues music.... right now it's about my personal blues. Well... yours too.. if you paying even minimal attention to what's happening in the USA ... you hafta be depressed. All the robber barons of our past have sardonic grins on their dead faces ... we are returning to their reality... the hard work done to undo all the terrible shit they inflicted on this country are being repealed!! If you have young children... get ready... they will be workin' in unsafe factory jobs soon. We are just pawns of the rich and their multinational interests.

Reaching retirement age? guess again. Paid social security your whole life? Tough shit!! Sick? Curl up and die! The only chance to reverse this trend is:
1. No more lobbyists
2 campaign finance reform
3 term limits
4 machete bearing crowds of pissed off Americans storming congress
5 tax billionaire people and their corporations (maybe that should be number 1)

My life sucks and doesn't look like it's gonna improve ... give me a machete!!!
Listen to the music at Bandana Blues and meditate .... it helps me ... for an hour or two.......

What do you think??

Nausea! Not caused by something ingested, but by watching TV shows about the fascist take over of our country by Repuglicans financed by large corporations. Everything I believed about this country is turning out to be wrong. The last 11 years have proven that we (normal Joes) are just cannon fodder and consumers (it was obvious for over a hundred years but I'm usually the last to know anything). Kept fat and dumbed down by the true leaders of this country. Even the founding fathers knew that human beings are intrinsically evil and out to grab your wares and keep them for their own without a hint of regard for fairness or compassion. They tried their best to create a document to help prevent what has happened to this country, I am however, sure that they knew it was an impossible task.

Wanna join me in this Nauseous state, or do you prefer to keep your blinders on? Get ajolt in the groin that will open your eyes by watching Terrorstorm by Alex Jones. If you have Netflix .. it is watchable for free... but you will pay a price ... your cherry will be popped and you'll wanna tell everyone about it.

Watch it and let me know if you are nauseous.

Obama Speech 04.13.11

I felt equally buoyed and dismayed by the Prez speech.... it was great... but the republican machine will grind it to pieces with spin, alternate baked "financial numbers" and opinions told to them by rich despots like the Koch Bros. that the play-dough minded subscribers to Fox News will eat up like candy and IGNORE the facts.

I wish him luck... along with the aging baby boomers that I am one of.

Listen to some blues and feel better...... you could be Libyan.

The world is in such a state that it is depressing to even follow news stories about it. It doesn't help my personal outlook on life in general. There isn't enough positive things happening to make me feel remotely optimistic about our spinning (out of control) planet.

Just something to cause me to spontaneously smile does not happen on a daily basis. However, about the only thing that affects my mood in a positive direction is my love of listening to great music ... I can still do that. If I became deaf I'd end my life.

So,... join me in smiling when I play music for us on the provided link ... email me if it helps you smile too.... that would make my smile wider. Just click on WTF?
