Old and singular

I have been called bitter, because I thought I had deserved more in life and said so. I am invisible, because I am older and I am also singular.

I became a singular person during my last marriage, I can’t really say how this happen. I have never been an outgoing sort of person, but I had had a few friends before.

I thought I would take a vacation and now I find that I am penalized for being singular. The better bargains are for double occupancy.

Too old to get a date, but not quite old enough to get those senior discounts.

My View

This is not a proper forum; the inverview at at Saddleback Church of Senators Obama and McCain by Pastor Rick Warren. I think this is quite different, than a candidate attending a church and giving a speech.

We stop the fiddlers

While all the philosophical bull about health care is going on, in the think tanks, blogs and the presidential candidacy; people are being made poor and dependent, trying to stay alive. Quite often loosing their dignity and abused by the personnel helping them get through the paperwork. I think the worst is losing what you have worked for, and change in the quality of life, as poverty, not illness, brings. In the mist of surgery, chemotherapy, pain medications and other sticks, jabs and tests; coherent decisions have to be made more about your finances, than what you are required to do for your illness.

Space Travel, a thought

While I was watching the preparation and launch of the last Martian Lander Phoenix; I began to think of a spacecraft powered by a CERN accelerator. CERN had been in the news lately because it was ready to come online, and some scientists think the experiments will be unsafe. It is suppose to create new particles and perhaps mini black holes. I was thinking if the could create mini black hole perhaps it might manipulate gravity such that it could use the effects of gravity to propel matter with high mass. Create a bubble of anti-gravity around an object that could of bounce off earth’s gravity. Like when you push magnet together of opposite poles and let go, they fly apart; I should say repelled. The problem would be to get a portable accelerator and figure how to power it. I am sure that we can figure how to create the anti-gravity, by finding particles with this property.

You see I imagined the space ship and the sound as if I had seen it in the future.

When the race of spades is the largest trump card

Just saw this article Graham: It's a "lie" to Say Obama Not Injecting Race into Campaign.

“To say that Barack Obama did not intentionally inject the idea of his name and his race is a lie,” Graham said in an interview on "Fox News Sunday."

“There is no doubt in my mind that Sen. Obama is trying to suggest that he is the victim of something,”
The only people that have ever said the word race are Obama's detractors and those who are calling out the right's antics.

Once again the Race Card is being played by white folks as a trump card to win this election. They don't think "drilling for oil" is a big enough issue to make folks pull that lever for McCain.
