Perspectives of a Colorado Curmudgeon on topics ranging from Basketball to Music to Science & Religion to Travel to Memories, touching on a bit of everything.
Excellent post and excellent pictures! This post should be good for about 50 comments. We had the most fantastic country in the history of the universe, and as the founders repeatedly warned future generations, that unless the nation clung to certain specific principles, the chief among these being virtue, we would lose liberty and everything else they fought for.Now we have a potential leader of the free world accusing another potential leader of the free world of having a small dick, and the accused saying he doesn’t. All this on national TV for the amusement of the world. We may very well be left with the choice between a corrupt, horrible hag like Hillary Clinton or a lying bozo like Donald Trump. It is not a question about the lack of virtue ruining the nation, it’s a question of how fast and in what direction the ruin will go.The left has undermined the foundations and torn out the support structures of civilization so totally and effectively that there is no way to rebuild or even hope to save the structure.
BB - mainly agree; however, I would not put the blame for the nation's decline solely on the shoulders of the left. Think about the right's support of corporate welfare, big money bailouts, the crooks of Wall Street, science denial, resistance to reasonable regulations, and so on. Plenty of blame to go around. Checking out Canada and central America to live out the golden years :-)
Very true, plenty of blame to go around. Debatable whether or not they are from the right, but establishment Republicans support corporate cronyism and corporate welfare in all its manifestations. There are references to alternate countries on the SHTF websites. Have no idea what country I would escape to if it came to that. Seems like they could come and getcha anywhere you go. I think after the government money runs out and social chaos ensues, we might be forced back into small self-sufficient communities like we had before the 20th century, and like we have in the small, independent Amish Communities. Arthur, IL is 124 miles from my house and I always have a couple five gallon cans of mower gas on hand in the garage that could get me there. Lol!
Canada? Central America? No Greencroft for you, DES!
If I were with you, Biz, in return for a bite to eat if none could be gotten elsewhere, I would be equipped to provide a valuable security service for the non-violent Amish, sort of Harrison Ford style in the movie "Witness." Imagine a band of roving thugs coming around after dark to trespass on Amish property, expecting easy pickings of whatever they wanted to steal. Imagine me hiding in the barn with night vision goggles, my Bushmaster, and three or four 40 round magazines. Things would not go well for the intruders. Lol! Might even be offered an extra helping of biscuits and gravy in the morning.
S. T. Greencroft - Nicaragua - I like the sound of that!!SSS - protecting the Amish - I like the sound of that as well. We could be the Menno Knights. :-)
Bizzy - total aside - given your feelings about the Colts owners, I would believe that our gracious host here would welcome a guest commentary about Irsay's hypocritical BS regarding Manning's retirement!
That is a possibility.
Re: substitute "white" for "great." There is a lot of sense in that. Multi-cultural multi-racial societies don't work. History has proven that. In this day and age, one is castigated by the suicidal progressives for stating that truth, but I ain't ashamed of it. It has nothing to do with one group being "better" than another, it is just that different races in large numbers in one country inevitably come into great conflict. It hasn't happened here yet on a large scale, but we do see a glimmer of it between Blacks and Hispanics. Hispanics in general hate Blacks. No one castigates them for it because they are also a minority. You can surely see it in Europe where Middle East races have corrupted the native white populations in France and Germany where rape has skyrocketed due to Muslim migrants.
Never Melted - racism is a big problem across the board, and perhaps never go away until the end of humankind or globalization leads to one race - I predict that it will be the former!! I also think that religion plays a huge role and simply piles on the racist issues. Europe is certainly learning that immigrants generally do not want to be assimilated but want to carry on their "culture" in a more appealing setting.
