  2. Good morning Mickey..., It’s quiet, it’s painful.

  3. Hi Mickey, Joe, and all who are not here yet…

    It usually gets quiet when the weather gets nice.  I have noticed that for a few years. I will be going outside soon. The trees are amazing - almost in full bloom. 

    Joe...I have gotten to know the wood chuck family better in the past few days.  You wouldn’t believe how big the parents are - like small ponies.  The young ones (I have to admit) are kind of cute. They look very cuddly. But it is the young ones who are digging along the foundation and doing damage.  Some days they win - and some days I win.  The score is not in for today yet. I fill the holes and they dig more holes...sort of a metaphor for life.

    The US policy on the treatment of widows of victims of assassination is lacking in any compassion. No one in the media has noticed. Group-think is at an all time high. But, the past few days, when I am out I have had people whisper their concern/disapproval about USA policy. Now is a time when we should be shouting and not whispering.

  4. Mickey...nice poem.  Very interesting…
    sometimes I have used specific music and sometimes I have used the photos of the bombed Iraqi children…

  5. I wonder if a poll was taken, and it was answered honestly, and what american could have an honest answer, how would people answer questions about their very OWN children.

    Would the answers reveal that children are property, objects owned by adults more than parents respecting the lives of children, for who they are?

    A young child was curious about the protestors on saturday. The father backhanded the little boy on the back of the head. Since I have been backhanded on the back of the head, more than once, this bastard committed an act of violence toward his son...his son just might want to inflict violence, that he has learned from daddy the jerk, on someone else.  Would daddy ask why little boy is violent? I’m sure he would.

    We americans have got to be the dumbest organism’s in the entire universe!

  6. Hi all,
    It’s funny how we consider ourselves the smartest animal on Earth, yet how many people have been outwitted by an annoying fly? Ever tried catching a moth...i’ts tough!

    I can safely say that not a single sea-cucumber has walked up the stairs and forgotten what they wanted.

  7. Rick...and it is almost impossible for a human to outsmart a squirrel. The power company has tried almost everything to keep squirrels from causing power outages. The last one cost me a lot of money for a computer repair after an ‘unhealthy shut-down’ caused by a squirrel walking on the wires. (I know I need a back-up power supply.)

  8. RMJ 7...For less money than a back-up power supply you, can get 20 lbs. of sunflower seed. This will keep the squirrels happy and off the power lines. No more unhealthy shut-down’s. The squirrels will be more fond of you, their racket might scare the woodchucks away and everybody lives happily after.

    The down side, well, 20 lbs. of sunflower seed doesn’t go far between the squirrels and the birds it will attract. Still a much better deal than electronics, if you ask me, but then, no one asked me.

  9. Good morning Mickey. I like the title, “Revenge of the Homeless.’

    Just received an email stating after 13 years of war, “it’s time to be alarmed.” It takes only 13 years. I returned the email asking where is the outrage that is 45 years overdue? Since this email is from some catholic priest, I reminded him the meek shall enable the destruction of earth by the aggressors. Time to be alarmed? Oh so polite, timid but grossly inappropriate. Why are americans afraid to get pissed? Why do people deny emotions? I mean, most americans are not practicing some advanced or esoteric developmental technique that they’ve divorced themselves completely from society, the insanity.

  10. Hello everyone. Great conversation, as always.

    I think we Americans are so programmed to believe we have it better than anyone else that we avoid reality. It’s just too painful and too risky to allow ourselves to recognize that we’ve been fed lies from Day One.

    On that note, a new post will be up in a matter of minutes.
