Demented Citizens for a Saner America

The Demented Citizens for a Saner America seeks to encourage the public in general and those who have differing diagnoses of dementia in particular to register to vote and then do so. We are affiliated with no political party nor will we be supporting any particular candidates. Our primary goal is to awaken an untapped voting block that is continually overlooked, those with dementia. There are ~25 million of us in the US. Many are still of sound enough mind to cast a reasoned vote. We encourage you to make you voices heard by doing so.

In support of our encouragement of the demented vote we offer the following:

1. There’s no denying the highly partisan and divisive nature of today’s political environment. Much of that can be blamed on voter apathy. We can still do our part to change that.

2. Through increased voter turnout we could conceivably return to a more civil time, both politically and societally. 

3. As evidenced by recent events, those in power today have little to no compunction with cheating, lying and generally short-circuiting the democratic process to achieve their own ends. However, rather than trying to out-cheat the card sharks, it is better to simply deny them the battlefield. Voting them out of power is just about the only tangible means a civilian has of effecting this.

4. Since the party in power right now has no interest in governing, let alone doing so fairly, we need to put someone else in charge that does have our best interests at-heart. Who is that person/candidate? At this point, literally any other group can and will do better than those currently in command.

5. Witnesses to the chicanery of the current administration assume that karma will come for them eventually; voting now makes you part of that karma.

6. Another important reason to vote those in power out of office is that they are currently running around displaying what many consider un-American behavior and values and doing so in our (collective) name. Personally, I don’t want these people being how the rest of the world judges all Americans. These people embarrass us greatly and will continue to do so until stopped.

In summary: if you have a problem with attacking our friends and embracing our stated enemies on the world stage, if you have a problem with the “good old boys network” running things, if you don’t like the state the country is in, if you feel that the very things that made this country great are being legislated out of existence, if you have a problem with the national debt sky-rocketing with no end in sight, if you just plain hate seeing neighbor turned against neighbor, get out and vote on November 6th

Make your demented voice known, because even to the demented, the current state of this land certainly qualifies as “crazy”. End the insanity in government, even if you cannot do so for yourself. Think of it this way: you are in all likelihood voting out someone crazier than yourself, and that can only be a good thing.


Update 23 October 2018: I voted. May the deity help the other guys...

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…
