The Outlook is Dismal....Unless

Yes, I feel like we're in a swamp. We're saddled with a White House administration that embraces a totalitarian mindset. It's their way or the highway, despite 200+ years of history that made this country the greatest society that has ever populated the earth....period! To Obama and his minions, it's all about ideology. Damn the torpedoes, full speed ahead!

There are so many things to hate about Washington, D.C. I dare say that if George Washington were alive today, he would be ashamed by what his name has become associated with. He would have been embarrassed during his lifetime to have a city named after him, but so much more so with what it has evolved into.

Keep in mind that George Washington was charged with challenging the same type of intrusive governance that we are challenging today, albeit under his name. How totally disrespectful of the man's legacy!

The colonists reached a breaking point back in the 1770's and I suspect that many of us are at a breaking point now. Although the forces arrayed against us are strong and we have a new breed of "Tories" in our midst, I don't believe we're going to be vanquished anytime soon.

The very same characteristics that enabled this country to gain a footing and withstand King George's onslaught are being brought forth today against Barack Obama. After all, when the economy crumbles and Washington D.C. runs out of its ability to prop up the stock market, what will be left? Hard-working Americans!

Unless I'm wrong, it's the working class that will get this country back on its feet. Not the countless freeloaders that take advantage of government largess and feel entitled to its support. No, it will be the people with a work ethic who keep on striving to get ahead.

When it all comes down, IF it all comes down, take heart! The people that matter are armed, they're industrious, and they're just waiting to prove that the failure of Barack Obama's "fundamental change" will be their opportunity to rise to even greater heights. Let's just hope they've kept a copy of the Declaration of Independence and U.S. Constitution in their back pocket!

Dare thee dissent?!

Yeah, I know, this can't possibly be happening in the US of A, but it is. If you dissent from the liberal line, you're to be squashed! Not argued with, not challenged on faulty logic, just squashed!

To whit:

The new CEO of Mozilla is driven from his job by a bunch of LGBT leftists:

Bloomberg: OK, Cupid, Where's the Line? Mozilla CEO's Exit Over Gay Rights Shows Split in Valley

An oldy, but goody:

DC Examiner: Examiner Editorial: Harry Reid lets Obama, Eric Holder cover up IRS scandal

You idiot climate deniers need to be punished, despite what you spent on snow shovels this year:

The Daily Caller: US college professor demands imprisonment for climate-change deniers

Ah, I love the scene of dissent waving in the breeze:

Swing Away!

I'm reminded of that line from the movie "Signs". Swing away!

I've been blogging under an assumed name, Roderic Deane. I broadcasted my first show as Generational Dysfunction on BlogTalkRadio this past Sunday. For the show, I explain why I created Roderic Deane and why I am leaving him behind.

Reunions Matter!

It's funny. You spend your entire life trying to forge a trail for yourself, wherever it may take you. You can't look behind, for if you do, you might be forever trapped in the past. The future compels you, the past repels you. Until you're my age, that is. My 40th high school occurred last weekend, about 1,000 miles away from where I am now. The ironic part is that I was in town the previous weekend for my mother's 90th birthday. I thought the reunion was the same weekend and I had the good fortune of being there at the same time as the festivities surrounding my mom's birthday. Oops! I was off a week. Oh well, I thought, no biggie. Until, that is, I started to see pictures of my high school days come across on Facebook. My God! I recognized everyone! Sure, they looked different, but they also looked the same, as I remembered! I was still living in my hometown for my 5th and 10th reunions. Your 5th reunion is fun! If you went to college, you've recently graduated and are enjoying your first job. That makes for a fun, 2-minute conversation. After that, it's like you never left high school. You continue on like it was yesterday. Fun! I had to travel back for my 20th reunion, having moved to Indianapolis. This too was fun, although my wife (at the time) was not particularly amused at my antics! Life goes on.... I can't believe it's been 40 years since I graduated from high school. Were it not for Facebook, I dare to say that the attendees would have been few. From far away in Texas, I sat anxiously awaiting pictures from the event, in real time. It didn't happen! Real time is presented by the young as they broadcast their whereabouts. For my classmates from '72, the time was frozen in the moment to be cherished as is. I regret not being able to join them, but I resolve to attend the next one!

All things must end...

All things have a "shelf life" and this blog is no exception. I've moved on to other ventures and, regrettably, have neglected this blog. It's time to come clean. I am suspending this blog from future posts so I can pursue other "interests". When those interests come to fruition, I'll let you know by posting about it here. In the meantime, thanks for visiting! You have contributed to a journey that I never thought imaginable.
