Small town, White people, thank God!

whtpplToday, for work, I had to visit New Braunfels, a small town only 40 miles north of San Antonio.   It is a vaguely Germanic-based town.  I didn’t have a lot of spare time to find a nice quaint restaurant for lunch so I ended up at Schlotzky’s.  A slightly upscale sandwich chain shop.

After ordering my sandwich and sitting down at a table to wait, I was pleasantly surprised to see that everyone around me was white. Not one hispanic in the place. It was kind of weird and nice.  In San Antonio, you would be hard-pressed to find another white person in the crowd.  Here I was sitting among my own people.  I felt a sense of belonging that I don’t often experience.  As the only white guy in most places I often feel out of place.

Perhaps I’m racist.  Well. No doubt I’m racist but that’s only because I feel the loss of community.  Maybe you can relate to being the only white guy in a room full of black people or even the other way around.  Well that’s what I experience every day.

There is something to be said about communing with your own people who have the same values customs that you do.  It’s a special thing.

President Trump – Too good to be true?

Tags

, , , , , , , , , ,

prestrpDonald trump is leading in the polls for the 2016 Presidential Race.   Personally, I’m both excited and a little weirded out.

The man is rude and crude but that’s what people are liking about him.  After so many decades of politics-based leadership, everyone is tired of the pussification of the United States and is welcoming a leader who might offer a chance to make America great again.

There was a time when the U.S. was a world power.  A leader.  A successful country that a person could be proud to be “from”.

He is touting strong action to handle things like illegal immigration.  He plans to build a wall. Finally!  He plans to deport illegals quickly.  Finally!  He plans to end “birthright citizenship”.  Thank God!   What a scam that was.  Yes. Achorbabies is a proper term because that is what they are.  Don’t like it?  Go back to Mexico and make your own country better.

I like his opposition to Political Correctness.  That was a terrible fad that was seriously crippling our country.

I look forward to hearing the rest of his plans.

Of course, this all seems too good to be true and things that sound too good to be true usually are.  Even though he leads in the polls, I find it hard to really expect that he will win.  Still, he has my vote if he gets to that point.  There are a few other good Republican candidates but they are not a manly as Donald Trump.

Go Trump, Go!  Fix America!  We need you.

While on the subject of presidential candidates, I also find it hard to understand how Hillary can even have a chance.  After Benghazi and the email situation how can anybody possibly trust her?  She leads now but I can’t see how she can continue.  She should be embarrassed and bow out.

Checking Bags in Movie Theaters

, , , ,

bkpkAfter the recent outbreak of movie theater shootings, they are getting ready to start checking bags as people enter.

Duh!  I would think that would be a standard good idea.  But first I have to ask the question, why are bags even allowed in movie theaters?  Why would a person even NEED a bag?

In my day we were not allowed to bring bags into theaters.  We would never even consider bringing a bag ANYWHERE unless we were going camping or to school. This thing about taking a backpack everywhere you go is a perplexing fad.  First, what could you possibly have to carry all the time?  All you need is a few pockets which contain your wallet, keys and phone.  Anything else is unnecessary.

Women, a different story but still mind boggling.  Travel light people!  It’s far better.  Keep it simple.  Keep life simple.

The Rage Returns

Tags

, , , ,

rgeIt’s pretty obvious that my rage is coming back.  “Angry Max” is taking over and I am powerless to stop him.  I know what is happening but everything I’ve taught myself over the last year is completely gone.  I need to go back and read my blog and see if I can remember again.

It’s crazy how the world just pisses me off at every turn.  I know I shouldn’t allow it yet it just keeps happening.  The things that make me angry are so numerous I could make a list.  I like lists but not sure I should list these things since by acknowledging them they become real.  Right now they are just thoughts and thoughts can be forgotten.

While I wasn’t working I was able to mellow out.  Now that I spend 9 hours a day, 5 days a week doing something for someone else, the mellow is waning.  As I get older and time passes faster it becomes more and more valuable.  The loss of time grinds on me like a millstone powered by the unending river of people that pass by me without seeing me.

When I was a kid my worst fear was getting old because I would be closer to death.  Now that I am older, the fear of my eventual death is less scary and more welcome.  I expect by the time I am 80 I will yearn for the eternal rest should I make it that far.  By the time I’m 80 the world will be so seriously screwed up that we will all yearn for the end.  Oy! Don’t get me started.

I think, at least at this time, I would like to once again retreat into myself and avoid external contact as much as possible.  It is the external that I have no control over and is becoming increasingly mind boggling.  You people are insane and getting worse!  Don’t you see it?  How can you not see it?

Calm… Relax.. Breathe…  It will all be OK.  I can’t be much longer until the government releases the virus.

What is the root cause of hate?

Tags

ih8uThere is a lot of hate in the world.  I know because I’ve not only seen it but I fight it every day.

We are all in constant battle with hate.  Is it human nature?  Perhaps.  We all deal with it no matter how “nice” we are.  I’ll bet the Pope hates somebody.

What is the root cause of hate?  If you really think about it doesn’t it come down to diversity?  When we see people who do not conform to our standards we immediately form dislike.  We can’t help it.  The bizarre ways that other people act confound us.  We can’t make any sense of it. It’s not logical.  There’s nothing we can do about it so it turns into frustration.  Frustration becomes anger and anger becomes hate.

Our society is now desperate to force opposite people together in the name of “Diversity” in the direct opposition of human nature.  It is just a matter of time until this combination of matter and antimatter causes an explosion that will destroy our universe.

There’s a reason God put us in different parts of the world.  Think about it.  No matter what race or religion you are; would you not be happier surrounded by people who are just like you?  Admit it!  You know it’s true.

When God first attempted Humanity on Mars, he put all the people together at one time.  It was a terrible mess and eventually they completely wiped themselves out taking the atmosphere with them in a massive rage-filled planet-wide nuclear holocaust.

This time God put each type of human in opposite ends of the planet separated by large bodies of water and burning deserts.  He figured that by the time we developed ways across these barriers we would slowly become accustomed to each other’s strange ways and though experience could live together happily.  Unfortunately his refusal to change basic human nature prevented our ability to get along.  Soon we will destroy the Earth in the same manner.

Soon after that, the sun will get hot enough to make life on Venus possible.  That will be the next attempt at Utopia.  I hope it works out next time.  May I suggest separate planets?  The difficulty of crossing the void of space should extend the time it takes for the next humanity to wipe each other out.  Perhaps that will be long enough for them to learn to live together.  Nah.  Boooooom!

 

Tired of ADHD

Tags

, , ,

spzToday there was a story in the news covering a little boy with “ADHD” who was handcuffed to keep him under control.  Everyone was mortified that the boy was handcuffed but I can see where this was totally necessary.  In fact, they should go even further and use a straightjacket.

In my day we had kids like this in school but they were called Spaz and sent away so the regular kids could learn properly without distraction.

I’m tired of people using ADHD to hide bad parenting.  It is not a disorder.  It is improper upbringing.  It is caused by parents who are too lazy to properly teach discipline when the kids are in desperate need of it.  These are the same parents who would lock a dog in a tiny kennel while they go to work or sleep.  Horrific!  Dogs, like kids, are supposed to run free and play.

Now that things have gotten WAY out of hand and parents are no longer allowed to discipline their children, we can expect things to get worse not better.  This whole thing of banning spanking was made up by the big pharmaceutical companies so they can sell high-priced drugs to treat symptoms that don’t exist.

It’s a shame the world is heading down this path of idiocy.  I had better expectations of the future when I was young.  Very disappointing.  I can’t even imagine how screwed up the Earth is going to be in another 10 years.  I’m sure glad I was a kid in the 70s and 80s.  I would not want to do it now.

Reconsidering buying land in Colorado again

Actual picture of land I’m currently looking at.

A few years ago I obsessed over buying land in Colorado and moving to start a new life.  My ability to do so was and is blocked by family obligation.  That put me into a depression spiral on top of my existing depression.  Things got really bad before I finally let go and dug my way out.  It wasn’t the cause of my depression but it was a major contributing factor.

Now that my depression is officially over, I’m thinking about my future again but in a better way.   Retirement will be upon me eventually and my family obligation likely be over by then.  At that point I will need somewhere to go because staying in Hell’s Furnace Texas is not an option.

What would it hurt to actually buy a little land?  I still like the town I chose and the weather is awesome.  There’s a nice subdivision that is slow to grow and not suburban flavored.  I can buy .25 acres for $10-12K.   Even if I never moved, it could be a good investment if the time came to sell it.  If I did move, it would be a nice place to die.

I’m thinking that just owning the land would put me to some ease about my future life.  I could actually have a viable plan and something to look forward to instead of just existing day to day.  I can totally afford it and pay with a check.  It’s not even like I’m throwing the money away.  An investment in real estate is likely to be better than just cash sitting in a bank account.

I’m still in the wishful thinking stage but it is a realistic possibility.  The price is right and the place is right.  Is the time right?   That’s the real question.

When the time comes that I am allowed to move on, I am ready.  If I buy the land I will be even better prepared.  I could wait until that time is upon me but prices may be higher then.  If I find a better deal, I could sell that land I bought possibly for a higher price and afford it even easier.

As a bonus, buying Marijuana will be legal.  I would really like to try that stuff out but not while I’m working.  Drug tests, you know.

It is really hard to make such decisions even if it sounds like a win-win situation.  Fortunately I have plenty of time.

Maybe I’ll plan another trip up there and see the area again.  This time I’ll drive.

What if the Nazis won World War II

Tags

, , , , ,

nziusflgI’ve often wondered what it would actually be like in the United States if the Nazis had won World War II and conquered the planet as they intended.

I’ve read a number of books and seen movies on the subject but they are all disappointing.  They all depict a dystopian society where everything is gray and everyone is unhappy and trying to return life to the way it was.  I would much rather see something centered around a happy Nazi rule.

What would be wrong with:

1. A strong central government with a single party able to easily pass laws for the betterment of society.

2. Everyone is the same race and religion ending the eternal pointless struggle.

3. Everyone has a job, healthcare and a home with a beautiful family to come home to.

4. Bad people would be quickly and permanently removed from society.

5. We would no longer have to spend a lot of time dealing with politics, politicians and elections.

6. Limits on the number of children can be set to prevent overpopulation.

7. We would have a high quality education system to make sure everyone contributes to a better life for all.

8. There could be limitations on travel so that there aren’t so many people wandering around aimlessly.

9. We would have an excellent space program because money would no longer be a limitation.  We would have already colonized the moon and Mars by now.

10. We would have excellent architecture.

I could sit here and think of so many more great things.  How could anyone not want to live in such a utopia?  Someone should write a book.  Let me know when it is ready.  I’ll buy it!

My pretend family

prtndfmlyToday I drove my Motor-home RV to my mom’s house just for an excuse to test drive it after all the work I’ve done on the fuel system.  On the way home I stopped to get a few gallons of gas before I take it to the storage place tomorrow.

As I was pumping my gas, the guy in the next stall peeked around the pump and said, “Y’all coming or going?”  Meaning going camping or coming back.

I am often shocked when other people refer to me as “Y’all” since they are assuming that I have a family.  For a second there it was really nice of him to assume that I am a normal person who might be capable of having a family.  My mind whisked away for a few milliseconds thinking that for all anyone might know, I could have a wife, two kids and a dog inside my RV.  I might be a regular guy.

I made up answers to his questions as if I had been to the lake camping over the Independence Day weekend with my family like a normal person.  It was kind of nice.

I already blew my chance of having a pretend family with the people at my new job.  They already know I’m a lone wolf.  Fortunately, they accept me anyway.

Maybe I’ll find some random people on the internet and put their pictures in my phone in case I ever need to show pictures of my family.  That’s perfectly sane.  Right?
