Am I The Only One Sick of Trumps Media Masturbation?

How I chose to spend the 4th.

Happy 4th of July America! This day used to be about our independence but as of this year and forever more Trump wants it to be about himself. He wants his tanks, his planes, his parade and almost more importantly, he wants, no needs insulation from those who might call bullshit on his fantasies. He is selling tickets to people who are guaranteed to be non-hecklers but more importantly for a holiday for everyone, they must be rabid Trump supporters.

For his calendar he hopes to sell later in the year, Trump will surround himself with generals, admirals and what-not, all while jets to fly-overs, not sure what they think they will show by flying Air Force One overhead but this is Trumps fantasy, all for the many photo-ops he will need heading into the 2020 election.

As a veteran I find it odious that he would pull this with our military, making them aggrandize him while at the same time Trump is targeting service members with families with undocumented members. There is just so much wrong with that but then there is so much wrong with everything he is doing with the military.

One thing my wife did not appreciate as a civilian is that the military pretty much has to do what he says, including many stupid things. They really have little choice unless there is really obvious to the common soldier reasons for disobeying a direct order from the Commander In Chief. Its not enough just to be a solider forced to be at the border, hating what you are being forced to do. You can't then just say fuck it I won't (article 15 at best, jail-time more likely). It is the sad brain-damaged truth that we have someone of very low intelligence who has not only never served but was a draft dodger to boot (and this cretin wants to tell ME what patriotism is?) giving orders to the military. Does anyone think this is the right answer? Really?

For reasons obvious only to Trump, he thinks this will buy him some legitimacy heading into 2020 since he has accomplished nothing of worth to most Americans so far. He does stupid shit all the time with the reasoning that it will make great TV. Look at what he did with Kim Jong Un after the G20 meeting, you know the one he dragged with him his worthless daughter and equally worthless son in law along for show and tell. So Trump walks on North Korean soil and did you notice people of importance there were not diplomats and ambassadors, just Trump and his broken-assed family along with their requisite retinue of reporters to commemorate the "historic" occasion where nothing actually happened.


As if that wasn't enough, our Dear Leader was just now once again siding against his own people and siding with Vladimir Putin about seriously important shit. I think he might know that Putin and his hackers are Trumps only real chance at re-election. The funny part of the whole Russia/Trump thing is Putin barely disguises his disgust and bemusement with Trump and Trump is just plain too stupid to see it...

No Trump is if anything the antithesis of what the 4th of July is supposed to be...its funny but after his first year I started envisioning a time when America develops a craving for a boring yet functional government once again. It seems like it has been so long...



I guess the most dangerous thing about Trump being President Trump is that he sees nothing wrong with lying directly to not only my face but the faces of all of the American voters. For a long time it was just written off by the Republicans as something that was not their problem but what will happen if and or when Trump tries to come to the American people to make the case for war and no one believes him? He has made this situation on his own but if the leader of the military cannot convince the public of some emergent military need, he isn't really qualified to lead the country now is he? Every time Trump is on-screen trying to sell his conspiracy theories, it just reminds me of Jon Lovitz...

Folks, this country is great and can be greater but at no point does it need Trump in order to do it. Since the country doesn't need Trump, it leaves us with the conclusion Trump is only doing this for himself at our expense.

Signed,
An American veteran embarrassed by his dysfunctional government...

An idea whose time has come.

Dementia Cannabis Update

Update: 22 July
Project started, grow page and journal is here:

Operation: Constant Clarity


This is one of the most difficult posts I have had to write, mostly because I "had" to. Allow me to explain and I promise by the end you will not only understand the "difficulty" and the "had to" bit but also I hope you come away with a few new assumptions or conclusions, you pick and if all that passes you by, perhaps you will find illumination as this is some serious "dementia from the inside out" kinda shit.

The 18:1 Theory
Before I tell you what happened, please recall I have expressed a theory or hypothesis on the effects of a cannabis extract/concentrate that tests out to have a CBD:THC ratio of 18-1 on the demented mind. By demented I mean any brain with not just dementia but anything that alters so-called normal operation. I don't mean anything like it fixes everything, rather there are things that are fixed by this like PTSD and ADD that you …

Be Who You Actually Are

Many moons ago I was starting my day like many of us enjoying the gifts of dementia by spending most of it screwing up each and every thing I attempted to do, large or small and usually in ways both spectacular as well as costly.  On the verge of tears I spent about an hour medicating with my very best botanicals when I had the BFO (Blinding Flash of the Obvious, engineer-speak): I am still attempting to be something that I am not only NOT but barring acts of a supreme deity, never will be again. Its just that damned simple.

* What makes a persons personality unique is the precise set of influences, patterns of thinking, lifetime experiences or memories amongst many other things. These are all stored and/or controlled by the brain.

* The root cause of dementia is damage to select portions of the brain.

* For better or worse, the simple truth is that this will result in a different person. Not better or lesser, simply different, in the same way that any two coworkers might be very dif…

Holy Crap Batman! A hero with dementia!

Braven 2018
Hey kids, I ran across something you just HAVE to watch. I mean you as in readers of these words. Looking for entertainment last night I was scrounging some of the dodgier parts of the Internet for something not involving a cape or "found footage" to watch. Long story short I ran across something from this year (2018) called Braven, starring Jason Mamoa (Aquaman/Ronin on Stargate Atlantis) and Stephen Lang (the major hard-ass in Avatar).  Plot reads like a B-roll actioner, drug dealers drop in on county folk and try to take them on their own turf. I agree, major tired plotline BUT......
Here is the kicker: The country folks (Mamoa/Lang) are in the cabin in the woods kinda thing because Lang (plays Mamoas dad) has alzheimers (he blames it on some Vietnam injury but...) and got into a fight at a local bar, thinking some girl was his dead wife out on the town. 
Of course Jason beats everyones ass in proper manner as it should be but thats why these two are in the c…
