    Default Dazed and Confused

    I watched an Atlanta Braves game earlier in the week and I understand that there are no fans allowed in the park because of the virus but I noticed there were pictures of fans placed all around the park to make it look like things were normal and I thought it was pretty stupid but enjoyed watching the game but in the paper today it seems people are paying 50 bucks to have their picture printed on a cardboard cut out so they can look for themselves on TV.....The seats behind home plate are selling for much more so you can see your smiling cardboard self for every pitch, didn't say how much they cost but I can think of about ten million things you could spend money on such as food banks to help people who have lost jobs and really could use that money to get through this mess.....We've lost our minds

    No, WE haven't lost our minds but it is interesting to note how many people have.
    It's impossible for me to imagine wanting my image to appear at a MLB game, let alone PAYING for it to happen. I'm disappointed that there are so many people who appear to think it's important to have their cardboard image on a TV screen. That said however...it's pretty trivial in the grand scheme of things. I'm MUCH more concerned about the number of people who want to turn my country over to the America-hating Democrat party.

    I am also depressed having to opt out of my season football tickets for the U. Of Texas Longhorn home games.
    Gonna miss the family tailgates, the pageantry, and the occasional victories.

    Yeah, I lean more toward saving than spending, and while I don't tell other folks whether or not, and on what, to spend their money, the same hands-off should go both ways. I'm not too excited about folks coming up empty in their retirement years and reaching into my pocket to help them back-fill a lifetime's worth of their bad decisions and frivolous expenses (yes, I understand that they feel the latest fashions, newest electronics, nicest cars, necessary vacations, lavish college student experiences, and cardboard baseball cutouts are "not frivolous or 'luxury'; they're what I deserve/need because I work so hard"), but the immutable law of nature since time immemorial is that humans make decisions and suffer their consequences, and I'm particularly concerned about so-called "progressives" gaining enough governmental power to remove consequences and make my decisions for me and take and spend my savings (and that of my descendants) to build their (dystopian) Marxist utopia.
    I keep saying it's crazy times, but a glance back at the global situation over the past several centuries makes me think that what's actually crazy is that a small body of brilliant, enlightened people was able to craft a framework that created the island of stability and prosperity that I've been so blessed to enjoy, and that it'll take ongoing, continual, tiring effort to keep it, because as a whole, we humans sure seem to incline toward stupid.

    Great post tokuno, I agree x a million....What worries me now is if the left pushes the USPS mail in vote because of this so called pandemic then we are screwed....I don't know how everyone's mail service is but my carrier sails by my house as fast as that little truck will go and some days I get nothing then other days I get several neighbors mail so I have to finish his job and deliver it myself which is not a bad thing I guess, my address is 5236 and I get 5326 mail all the time which is about 1/4 mile away but we have become friends thanks to my USPS carrier.....If mail in voting is allowed the left will make sure that votes from certain red areas somehow get held up or lost and votes from other blue areas from pets, dead relatives and unborn children somehow make it to the polls just fine and get counted....If the USPS was what it used to be and could be trusted like we remember from years ago when Mail carriers wore uniforms and cared about their jobs I think it might have worked but today when the Post Office hires anybody with a blood pressure and we trust them to deliver ballots for a true and fair election, well we're screwed...

    I tuned in to a Rockies games the other day, forget who the were playing and they were on the road. After about 5 minutes I noticed a blm on the pitchers mound, the backside so you could see it every time the pitcher threw the ball.

    Needless to say, I'm done with MLB. I'm all for ALM, though.

    Now I'm really confused....Today I ventured out for the first time in a while to get a birthday gift for my son and it felt good to be out of the bunker and drive my old truck around a bit.....While driving about at a stop light I came up behind a really nice car and noticed bumper stickers on the trunk and moved up out of curisoity to read them....It was a Lexus GX and they had two stickers plastered on the trunk and the left one said "Bernie 2020"" which surprised me a bit so I moved up a little closer to read the one on the right of a $20,000 paint job on the trunk which said "It's Our Turn Now" ......Not sure what that means because a Lexus GX starts at about 65 grand so I just had to figure there are really stupid people that make a lot of money that haven't figured things out yet.....On the way home I pulled up behind a Audi A7 which is about a 70 thousand dollar car and it had the same "Bernie 2020" on the left side and on the right side and I chit you not, the one on the right said "No one should be a Billionaire".....Really? This world has spun off it's axle, if you can afford an automobile that costs more than most people make in several years and you want a Socialist Government to take your earnings and distribute it to people who can't afford a Lexus or an Audi, well your just a total idiot and I hope you don't vote......For me I think I'll have some bumper stickers printed that say "Do you want to be a Billionaire".....F'n A.....This great country is what it is because of people who were willing to risk everything to start a business and make a PROFIT which is not a bad word but which is necessary and required to keep our economy healthy and one which the rest of the world wants to emulate....I fear for our future if Socialism become the norm....Brothers and Sisters this why we need to stay armed.....The future of our nation depends on right thinking people who are willing to vote no matter how difficult it is to do so....It's up to us....

    What tops that is the probability those idiots are university graduates who have been influenced by the leftwing professors that were the street-riot radicals of the 1960s & 70s.
    Sad that so many higher education centers of learning now preach against the 1st Amendment and practical economics.
