The Tantrum

A good lesson.

The Old Liberal

I was shopping at a Wegman’s grocery store a few years ago. In line ahead of me was a young mother with a cart full of food. And a 3 or 4 year old toddler.

As is often the case, the checkout lane was filled with those last minute items one tends to forget to buy. Like candy. And candy. And more candy.

I am not cynical enough (well, I am, actually) to think that grocery stores intentionally put loads of sweets right where little toddlers can see them. And demand them. And grab them. And cry for them.

Which is what this toddler did. He or she began whining. “I want..I want..I want”.

The young mother said “No.”

So, the toddler reached over and picked up candy bar and placed it on the counter.

We all waited to see what the mother would do. Would she give in? Would…

Giving Respect

Every veteran who has served our country with distinction should be afforded an honorable and well-attended burial.

In Saner Thought

Closing Thought–29Jan19

Recently I wrote a post about the respect shown to an “Unclaimed” veteran……..https://lobotero.com/2019/01/22/those-unclaimed-veterans/

And again an outpouring of respect for the “Unclaimed” veteran…..

When the Central Texas State Veterans Cemetery announced that 72-year-old Joseph Walker was to be buried as an “unaccompanied veteran,” with nobody present but cemetery workers, the response was overwhelming. Roads around the cemetery were jammed and the service had to start late to accommodate the estimated 2,000 to 5,000 people who showed up to honor the Air Force veteran Monday, CNN reports. The cemetery said it had been unable to contact any relatives of the Vietnam-era vet, who served from 1964 to 1968 and received an honorable discharge. “If you have the opportunity, please come out and attend,” the Killeen cemetery said in a Facebook post. “We do NOT leave Veterans behind.”

Sen. Ted Cruz and CNN’s Jake Tapper were among those spreading word…

How About Those Lower Drug Prices?

In Saner Thought

**This draft was written several weeks before the elections….it got lost in all the news that swirled around the airways**

This is a question I ask as someone who has to take pain meds as well as other forms thanx to old age…..but I ask because time after time I have heard Our Dear Supreme Leader tell the country that our health care will be better and that drug prices will be lower…..and after two years I have seen NO lowering of prices, at least on my drugs……

But wait!  All the bomb stuff the media was focusing overshadowed the news the Trump has a plan to lower drug prices…..

Less than two weeks before the midterm elections, in which health care has been a major issue, President Donald Trump on Thursday announced a plan to lower prices for some prescription drugs, the AP reports, saying it would stop unfair…

SCOTUS This And SCOTUS That

In Saner Thought

It is after Labor Day and the cowards in the Congress are back at work…..and they will be drilling the new nominee for SCOTUS….

Early fireworks: The Brett Kavanaugh confirmation hearing got off to a lively start on Tuesday as Democrats repeatedly interrupted the opening statement of Republican Chuck Grassley, chair of the Senate Judiciary Committee, reports the Hill. One Democrat after another spoke up to demand that the hearing be postponed until they can see thousands of documents that have been withheld in regard to the Supreme Court nominee. Protesters in the audience also interrupted, but Grassley said the hearing would not be delayed. “If we cannot be recognized I move to adjourn,” said Democratic Sen. Richard Blumenthal. “We have been denied real access to the documents we need,” he said, calling the panel’s handling of the matter a “charade.”

Kavanaugh, for his part, intends to tell the…

The planes aren’t invisible, but it’s clear the president is a kook

“Psycho Donald Trump seems to be becoming more maniacal and delusional by the hour.

Last week he bragged to enthralled Veterans of Foreign Wars conventioneers in Kansas City, Mo., that the military is ordering 147 new stealth aircraft and indicated that he thinks they’re literally invisible.

“This is an incredible plane — it’s stealth, you can’t see it,” Trump crowed. “So when I talk to even people from the other side, they’re trying to order our plane. They like the fact that you can’t see it. I said, ‘how would it do in battle with your plane?’ They say, ‘well we have one problem — we can’t see your plane.’ That’s a big problem.”

THE SHINBONE STAR

America to the rescue in our invisible planes!

Psycho Donald Trump seems to be becoming more maniacal and delusional by the hour. 

Last week he bragged to enthralled Veterans of Foreign Wars conventioneers in Kansas City, Mo., that the military is ordering 147 new stealth aircraft and indicated that he thinks they’re literally invisible.

They like the fact that you can’t see it. I said, ‘how would it do in battle with your plane?’ They say, ‘well we have one problem — we can’t see your plane.’ That’s a big problem.”

Two even bigger problems are:

  1.  It CAN be seen — physically and on radar, big fat dumb Don, and . . .
  2.  Why are you “talking…

Dumber And Dumbest

In Saner Thought

A rainy Sunday…..makes for a lazy day and lucky for me I do lazy really well……

When I first saw the movie Idiocracy I thought that it was very prophetic….and as the years go by it proves to be a work of prophecy.  Even the society at large sees that the population is getting dumber and dumber…..

It’s official: We’re not getting any smarter. Worse, media exposure might be to blame. Researchers analyzed 730,000 IQ scores of Norwegian men entering the country’s military draft who were born between 1962 and 1991, per ScienceAlert. They found that IQ scores rose almost 0.3 points per year among men born between 1962 and 1975, then declined for men born after 1975. Overall there was a 7-point dip per generation, reports Newsweek. And the Norway study is no outlier: Other studies by European and Scandinavian researchers have noted a similar trend, notes

Holy Hell and Despots

Very well stated. I agree with every word. We are at the mercy of this genius maniac. Our Congress won’t save us. He has cast a spell. They have thrown away any moral qualities they,might have had.

QBG_Tilted Tiara

I read somewhere recently that hungry hearts willingly eat lies, or something to that effect. This simple statement stuck with me and I wondered how many different situations it might apply too.

Certainly in our personal relationships. All of us at one time or another have fooled ourselves or allowed ourselves to be fooled because of our own need for love, safety and security. Maybe we simply allowed our hungry heart to override our intellect diving into the shallow end head first even knowing it was ultimately going to hurt. We eat the lies fed to us, the lies we need to hear for our hearts survival.

Now I come to the real crux of my meandering thoughts on why this simple statement has stuck with me. The real question I have been asking for days, weeks, months even; can entire groups of people become ‘hungry’ and swallow lies? Swallow…

Togetherness At Last!!

Patches never wanted Rusty to be part of our family.  When he arrived, at the end of 2005, Patches ignored him and if he got too close, she would hiss and push him away – not too gently.

Rusty was never put off for long.  He was born friendly.  Over these long years, it was evident to me that these two would never be close.

However, lately, things have softened.  Patches has started to allow Rusty to get close:

This is for real.  Not photoshopped!

We’re a close family now.  Finally.

Rusty Has His Morning Routine Down Pat

We all know that animals (even humans) have their familiar habits and routines which make us all feel comfortable.

Rusty, of course, has his.  Below are the 2 videos that make up our daily morning routine.  Of course, I usually have to interrupt my breakfast to accommodate him. He can be bossy at times (all the time!).  If I’m not quick enough, he lets me know about it!!  But it’s worth it.

It’s heartening to see that Rusty’s back legs are working better.  But, when I can, I encourage him to walk down the steps near the loveseat; otherwise, I pick him up from wherever, and gently place him on the floor.  For at least the next couple of weeks, I have to be careful about his jumping, even though he might want to do it.  Not easy when you’re dealing with a cat.

I mention “Down Pat” in the title.  For his reward, he gets Pat-ted Down.
