Yup, it’s 2016 and there’s just so much to
complain talk about that I had to drag this old blog of mine out of hibernation. I couldn’t help it–it’s truly become the land of confusion around here and it just bears whining writing about it. Aside from that I pretty much promised a good friend and fellow blogger that I’d start writing again and I couldn’t very well disappoint him now could I?
Now, before I begin (again) on this newest chapter in my blogging life I would like to direct everyone’s attention to the topmost entry in my sidebar. Please read it since it’s important that those who visit here and actually reads something that they understand my situation. I put that up when I took a break from writing and you can bet it still applies so please don’t expect a post a day since I doubt I could keep that up.
Everybody done reading that little blurb? Good. That’s taken care of.
So what confuses this 57 year old disabled vet these days? Here’s a very few that irk me to no end:
- Global warming (and those who deny it)
- The return of the Flat Earthers (really?)
- Any device that begins with the word “smart”.
- Texting (’nuff said for now)
- Clinton and Trump (and those who would actually vote for either one of them).
- Transgender bathrooms
- Much much more
Did I list “people” twice? Yes I did because when it comes right down to it it’s people who confuse me the most. My whole impromptu list boils down to people, our society, how we act these days and what we’ve become or, more to the point, what we’ve appeared to devolve into. And this comes from someone who actually likes people and always practices the seemingly lost art of common courtesy and gives anyone the benefit of the doubt until they prove they don’t deserve it.
And those who prove they don’t used to be few and far between and now? It’s more than obvious they seem to be on the rise. Doesn’t anyone think before they speak anymore? Seems not.
So, out comes the virtual pen once again. I figure this old blog has been around for the last 10+ years and I keep it well maintained despite the lack of posts so why not use it? Blogging may be not the forefront of online social activity any longer but there’s still a few of us around. Probably more than a few.
On the road again…
