I have come to the conclusion that mankind is becoming the most despicable animal inhabiting the planet Earth. We have already killed off 70% of all living species just in the last several centuries. We favor war over peace, greed over sharing, kill for the joy of killing, look down on ANYONE considered less than us in society, hate people because of their skin color, their clothing, or the manner in which they choose to wear it.
I just don't get it! What makes you any more superior than anyone else?
I'm in a rather bleak place at the moment.
I don't trust banks, I don't trust our government, I despise people who think they are better because they have accumulated more money or worldly goods and look down on others because of it. The stock market is a rich man's playground or casino, taking what little the average person has in it and then lying about it.
Mankind is on it's way to extinction and the world will finally heal itself and go on without us, much to the betterment of itself. Maybe someday another species will come from somewhere in space and appreciate this world for what it is.
The present species does not, not enough to tell the ones who are destroying it to go to hell!
If we are going to kill ourselves off, let's at least try taking out the trash first and maybe we can save it.
I know the scum presently occupying our Congress and White House care only for themselves, so we are already on our own. Might as well try before it's too late.
Peace be with you, I'm trying hard to keep up the same.
I wish to thank all of you who continue to read my posts on this site. I know I have not been very active lately, but not having the election in front of me or being in the midst of battle sometimes takes the wind out of my sails.
Not that I don't have more to say, but sometimes I have to pick my targets. I am trying to be critical but constructive at the same time and that's not easy.
There are many things wrong with the political climate, but this last election gives me hope that we can get this country back where it belongs, caring for one another instead of hating each other.
We are headed for a generation where seniors are going to expand exponentially and we are not ready for it. Not enough healthcare personnel, trying to reduce the safety net at the expense of the needy, infrastructure is falling apart, the planet is reaching a "boiling point", and we are doing nothing about any of it. We must feed the bulls first. To that I say bullshit! We must start and I mean now!
But I fear it is already too late. We will start having critical shortages of food due to climate change, the killing of bees, too much water in many places, too little in others, warming of the oceans, the death of sea life, being overwhelmed by trash, the poisoning of our soils which can't be remedied.
You name it, it is coming down the road, and it's coming faster every day. Just look at the food recalls lately. Beef, thousands of pounds, lettuce, cauliflower, you name it. Poisoned by E Coli or Salmonella because we have abandoned our checks and balances in food inspection.
Just look around you. If you don't see it, you are blind!
Enjoy your loved ones this week of holidays and try to do SOMETHING to change someone else's life who has less than you.
May peace be among you.
It's 2 days till christmas and while I'm not a believer, many I know are. So to all of you, I wish you a merry christmas, or happy holidays or whatever. For the first time in many years, this year I am embracing the spirit and hoping everyone has a wonderful new year.
I finally see light at the end of the tunnel, albeit a little dim.
We are going to turn this around! I foresee some rough times ahead, but I do think the republic will survive this descent into madness. The idiot will be gone soon and we can get back on level ground.
May you find peace and help others to find the same!
Today should be a day that strikes fear into the hearts of every American citizen.
The last sane person who isn't corrupt just resigned. And not just anyone, but the Secretary of Defense!
This means that now some stooge who hasn't a clue about the military will be installed to run it. If you were concerned about America going to hell in a hurry, it just sped up the process.
The clowns appointed to the DoJ leadership to rein in Bob Mueller, now Mattis. We will wake up one morning to hear that we are going to war with some innocent country because Putin wants it and tRump will do anything he is told to do.
The "leaders" in Congress must get off their lazy asses and bring him down NOW! Not next week, not next election, NOW!
We are in serious trouble and it's only going to accelerate unless something is done to stop him.
I fear for my country and it's citizens. Everything the Congress has done the past 2 years has been to the detriment of our country. Our allies no longer trust us, our own people no longer trust our government.
Get that fucking idiot out of our house NOW!
As usual, may peace be with you. I know that's much to ask after this tirade, but it is necessary.
For many, many years, people have been crossing our southern border and when caught are immediately sent back.
Sure, there are drug runners among them, always have been.
But many are caught and prosecuted and the drugs destroyed. That will never stop, no matter how much security you have. They will always find another way.
But put that aside for a moment. We are talking about stopping ALL people from crossing!
Why, all of a sudden, just because tRump is "president" everyone crossing is either a criminal, a drug dealer, a rapist, carrying disease, lazy or just trying to get non-existent benefits? Did it change overnight? I don't think so!
People are fleeing countries that our country has interceded in, causing war, gangs, poverty and downright fatal consequences for it's citizens. Why can you not see that?
Leave it to an asshole with little intelligence to utilize that for his own advantage. This is exactly what despots do.
Make villains of an entire group of people and victimize them again when they seek help. Are you proud to be a part of this? It must stop!
Why don't we need a northern border wall? Oh, I forgot, most people coming across that border are WHITE, not BROWN!
This idiot and all his enablers must go, the sooner the better.
It's time we started to act like fellow humans and live up to the standards and values this country has stood for for over 250 years.
May peace be with you, and may you come to your senses before it's too late.
I have come to the conclusion that the divisions of this country are a lot deeper than I ever imagined.
Trying to convince a trumper that he is a nasty, dangerous criminal is like talking to the wall, only the wall has more intelligence. And I know my opinion of them is biased, but it is biased because of a lifetime of watching them. Until now, they pretty much kept to themselves. But DJT has emboldened them to a point where they are no longer afraid of the consequences of what they say or do. In other words , he is their savior from their obscurity. He has given them the courage to speak their insane thoughts in public and commit their acts of violence and hatred against innocents because they feel they can now get away with it.
I don't know where this will all end up, but I do know it will go on for some time. It has always been there, it's now out in the open. Sort of like the "genie in the bottle" metaphor.
Hopefully we are reaching the end of this nightmare soon, with all the trumps in prison for the lifetime of crimes they have committed against humanity. Time will tell.
But keep this in mind, Bob Mueller managed to do what no one else was able to do and that is put John Gotti, the Teflon Don, in prison for the remainder of his life. Hopefully this will be the same for Douchebag Donnie (AKA Little Hands) and all of his enablers.
At least now something is finally coming out to give hope to us all that this sordid episode may be over soon.
Until that time, may you have the strength to endure and may peace be with you.
For all of you hoping for Bob Mueller to take down this criminal cabal occupying our White House, I'm with you.
But even if he does, that will not be the end of the nightmare. The underlying problem that few are recognizing is that our government has been taken over by the billionaire class, lock stock and barrel! For example, the Koch brothers. they own a good percentage of our supposed representatives in DC and state legislatures.
They want you to think that you can still achieve the "American Dream", when in reality they stole it from you years ago. You just don't want to admit it. Then you have Google and Facebook and Twitter and all the other social media platforms. Who among you really believes that Google and Amazon don't know every aspect of your searches, your purchasing patterns, your private life. Why shouldn't they, you tell them everything that goes on in your life. And then you place in your home a speaker that is on at all times, for convenience. That to me is stupidity! You have been brainwashed into thinking the way you do because they know your secrets, and they use them to get what they want, which is more wealth to the top.
Think about it. TV programming, the internet, advertising, all designed to dumb down this countries population. Education (or the lack thereof of facts) is being manipulated to teach our young people to be slaves to the pursuit of success, no matter the cost. Everybody gets upset when the Dow takes a tumble, only to come back within a few days to it's previous absurd level. The only ones making a killing in the market today are the power brokers. It's their party and you are not invited. I have seen a lot of changes in my 71 years, and most are not good. It will fail, and soon. It cannot go on this way for much longer.
We are entering into the unknown, with the denial of climate change, no money for necessities, no care for the less fortunate and continuous growth of inequality among the classes. It will come back to bite us in the ass and it will not be that far in the future.
Our future will be determined by people we don't even know exist, because they are in agencies like the CIA, the NSA, and other covert agencies who monitor every inch of your life.
I know many of you may take this as the ramblings of an old man, but I can guarantee this. DJT is only a symptom, the worst lies beneath the surface. The fact that an idiot like him got as far as he has is the problem, and if you voted for him you have been taken over by the elites and Facebook.
To be continued!
May peace be with you, and may you wake up before it's all gone!
Now that the election is over and this site will be up for renewal, I have decided to let it lapse and continue to post on my FB page, Dennis O'Connor. While I appreciate all that came to this page and read my articles, it is time to move on from this site. If you would like to continue reading my posts, send me a friend request and we can continue.
Thank you to a!ll who supported me in the election, I will never forget you.
May peace be with you all and may this nightmare soon be over!
