While the nation recoils at Speaker Pelosi's 1900 page (easy to understand) healthcare bill - don't bother reading it, just vote for it - We have an army in the field in Afghanistan. And Barack Hussein Obama is dithering over this and that. It's a prime characteristic of the ObamaNation. So much goes on that's completely wrong that it's difficult to remain focused. The Chicago crowd go for the shotgun effect and you need to hand it to them. Their aggressive campaign to push the United States into a strange permutation of utopian national socialism requires constant attention.
I dove a reef in Hawaii today. Yes a pod of dolphins were present - they sleep on the surface during the day in shallower water and hunt at night. There was one green turtle laying on the bottom, getting his shell cleaned by some of the reef fish.
It wasn't striking in its strangeness but in its similarity to other dives in other years. Many of the reef fish have stripes in order to confuse predators. Which fish in the huge school of striped fish does the predator eat? It's a metaphor for the ObamaNation's program of abominable practices where they come at us so fast, all disguised and need to be dissected to understand that they hope the system of opposition (which means us) is overwhelmed. Their strategy did not spring into being without conscious thought the way the reef fish did.
As of January 1, 2017 this blog began to receive anonymous posts. I try not to delete them, but if you want to be taken seriously here, you need to identify yourself, if only by some sort of cryptonym.
Welcome to Virtual Mirage
"But I don't want to go among mad people," Alice remarked.
"Oh, you can't help that," said the cat. "We're all mad here. I'm mad, you're mad."
"How do you know I'm mad," asked Alice?
"You must be," said the cat, "or you wouldn't have come here."
Virtual Mirage - What's on the other side of the mirror? Ask Alice how deep the rabbit hole really goes.
This blog is an extension of MY JOURNEY because sometimes my journey needs more explanation, and sometimes there is more to be said than can be expressed on one ordinary blog.
Sometimes it's politics (very serious), sometimes I address the human condition with a dose of humor, and other times it may seem as if the track is headed in a unique direction. I can be a complicated guy at times.
There are a few things you'll find I consider:
* Absence of proof is not proof of absence.
* Sometimes the questions are complex but the answers are simple.
* Love is the only condition where the happiness of another person is essential to your own.
* Steers do not sign treaties with meat packers. (think on that)
* Taxes are NEVER levied for the benefit of the taxed.
* The purpose of fighting is to win. There is no victory possible in defense.
WHITE POWDER (Novel)
There is something intoxicating about a secret.
THE OLD WHORE (NOVEL)
In the peculiar culture of the Central Intelligence Agency, "old whores" are people who will do whatever it takes to get the job done, irrespective of the cost.
EXILES FROM EDEN (NOVEL)
Sparks fly as two star-crossed lovers meet. He runs toward trouble as she yearns for something missing. And it ends in a flight from and toward justice.
Today, I balance work and play as much as anyone can. All things remaining equal, play is more important. Life is short - it's important to make every day count for something, if only to yourself.
I'm a former tinker/tailor/soldier/sailor who has now decided that maybe it really wasn't all done for nothing.
