I looked at the last time that I posted and realized, wow it has been a while.
A lot has happened since December 22, 2015. Too much not to use this post as a spray at all fields, so to speak.
The 2016 presidential campaign is in full swing and finally, Iowa voters will caucus on Monday. We are at a point of the campaign in which we will see in the Donald J. Trump campaign is going to steamroll it's way to the GOP nomination. On the Democrat side, we will see if voters Feel the Bern and whether once again, as in 2008, they go far left and nominate an open socialist.
The Super Bowl is set and next Sunday the Carolina Panthers and the Denver Broncos will play for all the NFL marbles. I'm pulling for a Bronco win for probably the first time because I do like Peyton Manning. And He has not ruined any chance for my beloved Cleveland Browns making the Super Bowl the same way one horse-faced looking guy, John Elway, did twice to my Browns in the 1980s. The reason that Mr. Manning has not done damage is because, to be blunt, my Browns have sucked. Pure, plain and simple.
On February 28 will be the Academy Awards, truly a waste of time and space. Yet millions will watch and salivate over people that could not get a serious job. Oh, and there is a manufactured controversy about the fact no Black was nominated for best actor and or actress. And the movie Straight Outta Compton was not nominated for best picture. Why there is the hash tag, #OscarsSoWhite. And I say so what?! There have been plenty of years in which Blacks have been nominated and won. Last I checked, and correct me if I am wrong, but the movie 12 Years A Slave won the Academy Award for best picture in 2013. It's all arbitrary anyhow and some years are just better than others for Blacks and well, everyone else. Some Black actors and actresses are boycotting the Academy Awards this year. And I say welcome to my party. I too am a boycotter but that is every year, not just over some made-up controversy. I just loathe the whole awards show concept.
California is still in the toilet and moving to the left at a rapid pace. There is still corruption at all levels of government and always the wonder of why. Maybe essential one-party rule is part of it. Just sayin. . .
There is so much to write and so little time. But one vow is that I will make an effort to get something in at least once a day from here on in.
Ruminations are not all that easy to do.
