I'm in utter awe. Good afternoon all. It was a strange night, but Wednesdays always are. The show officially ends at 11 p.m. Central time, but we
all talk over Skype for a while afterwards. I fall into bed (maybe I should try one of those cots in the back, instead) take my sleep pills, then
sleep in three hour segments until nearly noon. (Unless there's a reason to get up, and it had better be a good one.)
That strange sleep is part of my disability, but I'd rather not talk about it publicly because real guys are near perfect and don't have problems.
I fall short of that part of the guy code from time to time, but I can seek forgiveness by spending half an hour in a hardware store, or truck or
motorcycle dealership. (We don't have any gun shops nearby.)
, Hi! I didn't see you over there. I hope you're feeling all right, it seems like a bout of discomfort is sweeping through the
regulars here lately. G keeps the place spotless, so nobody's catching anything here. Just take care of yourself.
You said something that struck a chord with me. It brings up a question I haven't been able to answer yet, maybe you or the rest of the guys in the
place can help. Here's what you said:
Change for the sake of change without wondering whether or not what you're changing might have been like that for a real reason. People have
it in their heads that everything old or traditional is the enemy without wondering whether or not some of it exists for a real reason that makes
There's not much question left, especially after Mrs. guohua offered her assessment of America's strength, that the country is worse off in nearly
every area then it was a decade ago. Our current president's job approval has been slipping (or plunging, depending on which side of the aisle
you're on) almost from his first day. So my question is:
Is our current president intentionally weakening the country, or is he doing it through carelessness or inadvertence? If intentionally, is it
because of hatred for the traditional, or for America as an idea, a country?
At the beginning, I thought it was just a set of bad breaks, but after six years it's getting harder and harder to believe it. He's a very
effective president, in that he's made many changes, he's had a big effect. Not too many people anymore think those changes are good.
People are being told that a Congress that prevents the president from getting things done is a bad thing and justifies extraordinary action. In the
first place, the system was designed to make changes difficult unless there was fairly widespread agreement. In the second place, I think we've had
enough changes for now, let's try to heal from the changes we've had.
