I am a

commentary and about.

So the orangutan is out of the White House, and the political system is back to normal. Is this good? Fuck no, we're just back to these jokers doing nothing while arguing about it and sticking pretty much to party retoric. When did we become so weak, unable to make decisions and afraid of doing the right thing. I was listening to a Joe Rogan podcast the other day. In Austin, TX and I really can't believe this, 3 guys are throwing trash at a cop on 6th street and the guy backs down gets in his car and calls for backup? WTF as Joe said I miss the old days, fuck backup there would have been 3 bodies. I agree.

My view; Men are not men anymore, hairless self absorbed girlish betas are the norm, when did we become so self-entitled? We are supposed to be the greatest country in the world, we are not. Our children are 35th in the world in math, why are people homesless in America if they don't want to be? And why the fuck do we continue to let politicians and organized religion define us as a country, we need to be great again and not great in the sense of the bullshit we got handed from Frump, or Trump or whatever his name was.

Oh yeah about me? Well I am a sledgehammer but this guy, Noam Chomsky, gives me peace, and perspective. Kurt Vonnegut gives me dreams, imagination and makes me thoughtful. Hermann Hesse gives me humility and Charles Bukowski, well he makes me laugh, and reminds me not to be a drunk or a prick. And I can't leave out Earnest Hemingway, not even sure what to say he leaves me speechless usually. My favorite author no doubt, a real man, a real father and as old school as it gets. Much respect sir.

father & human.
