TIME IS RUNNING OUT

Time is running out for 2016. Many will say, “Good Riddance” to 2016 but it is just part of the journey we call life. Enough of the soppy stuff and on with the ODD. Have a great day and don’t forget to finish off the leftovers.

    I really doubt it’s Czech Special Forces. The insignia and camouflage don’t match. More likely a Ukrainian spoof of Russian troops, based on the misspelled TV name “Roissya” (sic) top right corner…

    Time……is of no real consequence. We simply use it for both legitimate and Illegitimate purposes. Time……is a form of control and we either inflict it on ourselves or allow others to inflict it on us. That being said however………….2016 was really inconsequential for me generally speaking with the exception of Nov 8 which will go down in infamy. It was on that day that the US and the world must now face ”uncertainty”.

    What will 2017,18,19 hold for the world with this man in office and being lead by his fanatics? Yeah I know…..I’m just a bundle of joy and happiness aren’t I? I just find it difficult however to not consider what deep down inside we all know (that Trump is a certifiable sociopath) and then leave it till the last minute when the brown crap hits the revolving oscillator ……..and then suddenly say………..why weren’t we concerned earlier!!!

    “I am exceptionally concerned about demagogues,” the 85-year-old Weiss told me at Wednesday’s commemoration at the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum. “They touch me in a place that I remember. I know their influence and, unfortunately, I know how receptive audiences are to demagogues and what it leads to.”

    “It’s really frightening,” said Al Munzer, hidden as an infant in the Netherlands with a Dutch family and their Muslim nanny. “When you see these mass rallies that Trump is able to attract, you really wonder: How are they buying into this message of hate?”
    Munzer, who lost two sisters and his father to the Nazis, said he never thought such things could happen in America, but now he’s not so sure. “Thinking that Germany was somehow unique is wrong,” he said.

    At this time of open hostility to Muslims in America, museum staff arranged for Johanna Gerechter Neumann, who fled with her family to Albania after Kristallnacht, to talk about how Muslims protected them from Hitler. Her father, a patriotic German and World War I veteran, “certainly thought that it could never happen in Germany,” she said. “It did happen. Slowly, but it did happen.”
    And now the aging survivors worry it is beginning, slowly, to happen again. “It is repeating itself, and it is again the inattention that people pay to real cues that one should understand,” said Margit Meissner, almost 94, who fled on foot through the Pyrenees from occupied France.
    “It’s not Weimar,” she said, “but it could become Weimar Germany if you have Mr. Trump here and people keep believing what he says. . . . I think one has to speak up. And that’s the one lesson from the Holocaust: >>>>>>>>> Do not be a bystander.”

    My apologies for my depressing comment but when we speak about ‘time’ I think to myself that there is no better time to be concerned about the future than now.

    Have a good one all, and maybe, hopefully I am wrong.

    I love the weirdo comic, now I need to find another weirdo to call my own. 🙂

    Apparently, the dog wants to play now, so I have to get up and play with him.

    Have a good one,

      I used to wonder why I attracted weirdos but I think I may have figured it out. Time to embrace the weird.. or ODD, if you wish.

      Carry on gang

    The future has never looked brighter. Obama’s executive orders stifled business growth and hobbled our economy. When those restrictions are lifted you’ll see a surge in growth, businesses will expand and flourish, and more people will be employed, contributing even more the economy, and even paying more in taxes than before because they’re making a better income.

    “A rising tide raises all boats” per JFK. Truer words were never spoken, and you’ll see in the next few years a more prosperous populace.

    People without blinders put in place by the mainstream media are optimists now, and rightfully so.

      Unfortunately Don, that was completely incorrect. If there is any surge in growth it will be in the bank accounts of the already wealthy. The common worker will see little relief being thrown the occasional bone to pacify the masses. However that is just the financial end of it. Trump is a snake oil salesman pandering to the mindless sheep in the USA as other extremist leaders of the past in other countries have done.
      Trump is not a statesman, he’s a spoiled brat reality show host with a Twitter account along with his family who have etched in their coat of arms :”LET THE REST EAT CAKE”.
      If through some quirk of fate some small aspect gets better during his reign, it will be lost in the pollution of every other huge error he will make. And please stop saying that others have blinders on due to main stream media. Trump is judged on who he is, his history, his own words and on the deplorable reputations and comments made by those he is appointing to assorted positions. If there were no media, Trump will still be a future disgrace.
