Well, I am back at the keyboard. I feel somewhat refreshed and ready to write some more. Lots of interesting ideas floating around the 'net. The most interesting idea is for the economy to collapse and we go on survival rations. I'm for that. Then we get out the long guns and watch the road for varmints coming in to steal our food. They will not be dealt with to easily. For those who might have a little sympathy for looters and robbers you might kind of listen to my general viewpoint on the matter at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L3ORwO5xDUE . It's the Eagles singing Get Over It. I love the song.

You say you haven't been the same since you had your little crash.
You might feel better if they gave you some cash.
The more I think about it old Billy was right.
Kill all the lawyers, kill 'em tonight.
You don't want to work, you want to live like a King.
But the big bad world doesn't owe you a thing
Get over it! Get over it!

I have had to live with every infirmity that came my way. No being the lucky sperm and being born to a rich family, I had to go out and make it if I wanted to eat. And you know how that world is out there when you work at a job. You sell your labor wholesale but you buy your food retail. Real cute the way that has been accomplished. And with so many people being out of jobs it is not going to get any better. When the old man was young and working in the packing plants of Des Moines, Iowa, any complaint on his part get him marched to the window of the plant where he could watch the block long line of people looking for a job at the plant. They told him if he didn't like the way things were done he could get the hell out because they had plenty of men wanting his job. If you had a wife and a family you learned to keep your mouth shut. Feeding the family came first.

Like I keep telling everybody, what is going on in the world is not in the news. What is going on is not being talked about. You get it when it is an accomplished fact. Your best shot is to just think ahead as far as you can go and see how you come out on your theory. Once in a while you get a part of the action out of some obscure sentence on a blog or a news site. You just have to be really alert. The going will be tough and mostly nothing more than groping in the dark. Do what you can with what you have to work with. Stay free and stay alive.

Amen Michael - it's a tough world out there and I am ready for change - ready to simplify.

Welcome back Michael, we all need to step back and take a few days to get our ideas going. And a little rest is great to.

As always, a very good post, my friend!

There is an old saying "Don't believe anything you hear, and only half of what you see!"

I think that applies in this day and age!
