America Celebrates

The birth of our country has proven that we have done the most righteous things in life for the past 233 years, since the founding fathers of our declaration of Independence penned the great document of our birth. It is said, that freedom comes with a price, a price we all have to pay in order to make our ideals of freedom a safer bet, than not.

“Wars and politics aren’t the worth cause of political bickering, but of ones natural endurance of make a point – Collateral damage on the other hand is a another story for another time and place”.

Politics are the pivots of the game. No wonder why those in Washington are elected each year to speak and voice their concerns among those that have the legal right to vote our men and women to Capital Hill. Public service is what it is called, but the freedoms and ideals that come from the “Hill” are the one’s that make the transition from hometown hero to national hero in a matter of seconds of winning an election.

Make life a little simple, Huh? But, sure is a crappy way to get the job done! It’s only common sense and America deserves better.

A taste of middle age

Middle aged crazy? What’s a guy like me with a Cochlear Implant, ok, a bionic ear have to do with being middle aged?

Crazy enough to challenge the souls of life as I see it today, compared to what life was like 44 years ago in my past.

The future today, isn’t what I had dreamed it would be today, compared in a lifetime.

“Wait a minute?”, your starting to sound like a one of those crazy sleazy Dave Berry types! Shall, I conquer?  – Not a chance.

I wonder why life has become such a melodrama of its own without the serial reruns? Perhaps, Dave Berry would’ve agreed? Probably not, after fetching sexual jokes about David Letterman and Sara Palin’s 14 year old daughter. Life would never be the same on Television – in fact, the mad cappin beef may have been the hurdle turtle on Dave’s overture to take over the “Tonight Show”  from Jay Leno.

“Ding”, the sounds of the bell ring to start the fight for late night ratings.

Speaking of late night – the late Johhny Carson was an icon of his own time and demeanor, but he was human, just like you and me, middle aged, always a crackpot of first class jokes, always brought in the rich and famous.  Maybe that’s why Jack Parr was so famous at the same time in the 1950’s, before Carson came around?

“Ding”, round two.

Whatever one’s middle age? Life, is always the same and the story is different than one can tell, depending on whom you ask. Maybe that’s why, I celebrate my 44th birthday today, as life is always full of stories to tell, especially to the kids as they grow up.

“Ding, round three!” – say, this a fight or what?

“Uh no, you must be in a post Twitter world, right?”, well…..

Like I said, life has its drama – perhaps the 40’s seem better than the 50’s? Perhaps this is the taste of one’s middle age drama, minus Dave Berry.

Graduation gone wrong!

Graduating for High School is supposed to be a time of dedication and hard work, but once you’ve finished you’ve earned the hard work and your diploma – one young man found out the hard way, that walking across the stage and blowing a beloved kiss across the stage to his mother who sits filming the scene during her son’s graduation is in all disbelief that her son did not get his high school diploma on graduation day.

Here is a link to the news clip to the young man’s story.

Graduating is supposed to be fun and rewarding, but, where was the principals common sense in this story? And, what the hell was she thinking? OMG, not in my 25 years of post high school graduation have I ever heard of such a raccoon twitter ever denying someone their high school diploma because he or she walked across the stage and blew is mother and family a kiss from afar and only to be humiliated in front of his fellow classmates and everyone else that was present there at the graduation as well.

Common sense tells me this principal needs a spanking in the twats for miss behaving herself! At least the school board should fire her and suspend her without pay for merits and grounds of denying students their high school diploma. I wouldn’t be too surprised, if the graduation class went en mass and showed support for the misdeeds done, by the principal.

Lets hope the media gets on her case and she better hope to have a good explanation of why she was a witch to this young man and his fellow students.

Its only common sense and time will tell.

So, now tell me was this disruptive behavior or was this an over-reaction by the schools principal and school district policies? Readers please take the pool!
