Wednesday

(I've never played darts with Ted Turner.)

Yesterday, the Dragon Lady served Korean pancakes for dinner.  The meal was comprised of fried batter mixed with vegetables and squid.  My kids love that kind of stuff.  For me, however, the fare was just a little bit too ethnic.  But I didn't complain.  I smiled and ate my vittles like a happy young retarded boy.  I'm wonderful that way.  The glass is always half-full in Smith's neighborhood.

I downloaded a series called The Divide.  It centers around an innocent Caucasian who stands accused of slaughtering a black family.  The show's filled with a shitload of HBO veteran actors.  You'll recognize a lot of familiar faces. I find the premise quite shocking.  In the liberal media, the white man is always the villain. So this change is quite refreshing.

I paid homage to the Christ God.  No big surprise.  I'm not some filthy atheist.  I said the Lord's Prayer on bended knees.  I asked Jesus to give me more patience.  Lately, I've been quick to anger.  This unwanted fury often eats at me like a cancer.  Conversely, forgiveness and serenity are wonderful for the body.  They make us both spiritually and physically healthy.  Trust me.  Emotional baggage is for the birds.

I went to bed at 10 p.m.  I had a strange dream about playing darts in a bar with Ted Turner.  Mr. Turner was the owner of the tavern.  He kept hurling insults at me.  I called him rude and informed him that I'd never drink in his establishment again.  He promptly expressed remorse for his bad behavior.  I refused to accept his apology.

I woke up at 6 a.m. and drank several cups of coffee.  Then I read the paper while enjoying a bathroom break.  The Asian Games are coming to the peninsula in September.  The Korean squad is expected to win the gold medal in baseball.  Japan has the strongest professional league in Asia.  However, their team is made up entirely of amateurs.

I turned on Fox News.  Robin Williams committed suicide.  I loved Mork and Mindy.  I also marveled at his mad stand-up comedy skills.  But most of his movies sucked complete ass.  He frequently played pompous know-it-alls.  Patch Adams was so bad that I damn near cried during the film.  No kidding.

Anyway, it's time to don our tinfoil hats.  Here's Alex Jones.  He believes that Osama Bin Laden is still alive.

God bless.

    3. Mr. Smith, do you think the Ted of your dreams could represent Tyler Durden? The Tylers keep hurling insults at Shonkey Malonkey or whatever name you're using this week. And you keep darting the bitchez with pithy pissy comments. You're more on target with those than you used to be, BTW. It shows you've been reading the posts you're leeching onto. Well-played! I bet you WISH the Tylers would apologise to you. Maybe after they whip you off the pages often enough so they know you have sticktoitiveness...

    4. I have no idea what my dream means. It's probably just a by-product of stress. I'm raising two young children during a seemingly endless economic recession. Life's a bitch.

      Cheers.

  2. Which Osama bin Laden would Jones be talking about ?
    If you look at the photos/vids of this cat over the years TPTB have had several guys play him.
    Navy Seal Team 6 knew the score and paid the price.

    FLB Smith... peace........

  3. I thought OBL was in the white house right before 9/11?

    And then Time magazine ran an article about his death in 2001?
    Who knows. I know that the current administration is hell bent on starting a nuclear war with Russia, which they seem to think we can win if we do a first strike. The whole world has gone mad. And my family seems to be doing just fine, by the way. Everyone has their own agenda, and I rarely see everyone during the same day. best, Jay

  4. And with regards to RW, mixing alcoholism and psychotropic drugs doesn't seem to end well, usually. I've been sober thirty years, and that has been my observation, on more than one occasion. best, Jay

    1. I heard just today that he had the early onset of Parkinson's Disease. Plus one of his television projects had just been rejected. So who knows? Suicide is a mystery.

      Cheers.

    2. People who abused too much cocaine, especially the freebasers, are more prone to get Parkinson's. Remember what happened to Richard Pryor toward the end of his life? That shit was cut with all sorts of who-know-what kinds of adulterants. I remember from the late 1980s that there was a small outbreak of artificially induced Parkinsonianism from a bad batch of synthetic heroin in the U.S. that had a few molecules that were "off" from how it was cooked. When you get enough strange chemicals floating around inside your brain, weird things can happen to the wiring. Coke and speed do enough permanent damage to neurotransmitters on their own. Add in mystery chemicals and doG only knows what will happen. Not to slag the poor bloke, but I wonder whether Michael J. Fox's Parkinson's was caused by that?

    3. I never got into illicit drugs. I was too busy having a love affair with booze.

  5. Suicide is good. It's one of the things that makes us human. Correct me if I'm wrong but I believe the other animals are incapable of suicide, with the possible exception of that cute little critter on Bohol in the Philippines, which, it is said, will bash its little skull against the wall repeatedly if taken into captivity.

    1. Suicide is devastating to the survivors. It's the ultimate selfish act. Suck it up and die a painful gut-wrenching death like everybody else.

    1. Probably one of the haterzzz who drifted over from ZH getting a slam at Robin Williams, Mr. Smith. There are many who are so full of bile that they want to spew venom at everything. They feel that way because deep inside, they hate themselves. At some level, they realise they are awful human beings. They are like pancreatitis, where the human body eats its own inner organs because the digestive juices get backed up and dissolve a person from the inside. Many of them will end up killing themselves.

    2. I'm full of bile, too. Dealing with my anger and bitterness is a daily struggle. My demons have demons.

  7. Finally I got caught up with your latest pieces, Smith, shine on!

    Things are speeding up, getting crazier by the day. I really enjoyed your link to Bonner and Alex Jones from Saturday. Excellent discussion between them, and I valued the conversation.

    "Something wicked this way comes." And it's not going to be pretty.

    Keep posting at ZH...

    1. OK Jay. I'm always interested in a well-mannered debate, because when I'm forced to defend my beliefs, it makes me re-examine them, which strengthens me. Liberals, at least many of the ones I know from my days in America, have their problems too. They're doGamned wishy-washy, fuzzy-wuzzy, "can't we all just get along?" weenies. I prefer hard-edged, two-fisted union-member left-wingers, of which there are plenty down here. America needs more liberals who aren't afraid to hate on the Fed, who will call Preznit Hopey a corporate tool, who have "Anarchy in the UK" playing in their heads instead of "Kumbyah." They need to know what FLB! means and why it's the right thing to do to have his severed head on a spike.

      Speaking of severed heads, Mr. Smith, did you see the news coverage about this one? I can't find a non-pixellated version, but I didn't look too hard, because I don't need to see that shit. Would you want Bluce holding a decapitated gourd while you took a happy snap of him? These are the people of your nightmares, Smith, only they're more real than the giant sturgeon in your dreams.

    2. Muslims will end up killing us all. I really believe that. Can you imagine what would happen if they got their hands on weaponized small pox? We'd all be sick and dying.

  9. Smith, how do you know it's "devastating to the survivors"? You're not one of the survivors.

    1. Actually, I had a friend in high school who killed himself with a shotgun. I think about that guy all the time. His death still mystifies me. That was over thirty years ago. Imagine the pain his parents endure.

  10. I agree there's too many youngsters that commit suicide. They got their whole life ahead of them---whatever's bothering them will go away--suicide not good. But some old people are faced with disease, pain, incapacity---I think they have the right to off themselves. I'd rather blow my brains out with a 44 magnum than to go to the hospital and beg some doctor to give enough morphine to put me under.

  12. FWIW, my youngest sister killed herself. I can't say that I blame her.

    She had a bright future ahead of her -- until... She had graduated from Bryn Mawr (Ivy League women's college in Pennsylvania) with a degree in geology. (Why that, I don't know, but she could have wound up working for an oil company or something.) She was hella intellectual. After college, she spent two years in the Peace Corps, teaching science while living in a mud hut in Botswana. After coming back to where my parents lived outside Washington, D.C. she had a good track on an entry-level job with the State Department. We Bukkos have contributed many civil servants to the deficit-producing maw of the Fedeeeeeevil Gubberment.

    Then, one summer day in 1988, she was driving the 1967 Mustang fastback six-banger that I had loaned her $1,000 to buy years before. Going down a highway that our family had traveled literally thousands of times. Broad daylight, stone-cold sober. She went to make a left turn across traffic and didn't see an oncoming car. She got T-boned on the passenger's side. She was wearing her lap belt, the only thing cars of that era had. But the force of the impact slammed her forward and to the right so hard that her head was smashed into the dash with enough force that it literally knocked her right eyeball out. The other eye was almost completely blind from the physical trauma. The bone around her nose was driven so deep into her brain that it damaged her hypothalamus, one of those central glands that regulates the most basic body functions. After a long time in a coma, then rehab, she attempted to live a shadow of a life. She walked with a limp and a white cane, and spoke in an almost-unintelligible slur like a stroke victim. In a way she was, only it was a blunt force stroke she had, not a vascular one.

    My sister got the same multi-hundred-thousand inheritance that I, and other family members got from a deceased rich relative several years after that. She was financially secure. She had a boyfriend, decent enough bloke who's still close to my mom to this day. She got set up with a make-work federal government job created to help the handicapped. But after a decade of living this shambling, debilitated life, she could no longer stand to be less than half of the globe-trotting person she once had been.

    So she overdosed on the slow-release blood pressure pills she had to take on account of her metabolism being messed up. Not long afterward, she told her boyfriend, who got her to the hospital. If it was narcotics or a lot of other substances, there are antidotes to reverse those. But the BP meds just kept releasing and releasing and releasing. It took her two days to die, in spite of full-on medical treatment.

    My mom, who had turned her life inside out to care for my sister -- she even built her brand-new home with a handicapped apartment for her -- is still a broken person because of the suicide. I hope it doesn't sound cold, but I think my sister made the right choice. Living caused her misery, because she could no longer be who she used to be. Her intellect was intact (although a bit emotionally scrambled, which is common with brain-injured people) but her body was wreckage. There was no more chance of improvement. She would literally limp and stumble through whatever life was left to her. There are some times when there's no point going on. I salute her courage. The greatest sorrow is not for my sis, but for the suffering of my mom.

    1. I just don't believe in suicide. It's too painful for family and friends. The act is also against God's will...In my humble opinion.

  13. Smith, I worked for the First United Methodist church for two years as a sextant. (I was unemployable at anything else then, I suppose). The preacher said God understood sickness, and a person who commits suicide is sick. However, the Catholic priest said the suicide goes to hell. Lots of fifferent interpretations, it seems.

    Bukko, I was in a coma for a month as a result of a sub arachnoid hemotoma bursting (I blame it on the statin drug Lipitor). I could tell you at great length about not understanding during the three months learning to walk and talk again. (But I imagine you see it in your work). It's been ten years and I've probably recovered as much as I'm going to; outwardly I'm "normal" appearing (whatever that is). Some days are VERY difficult though. best, Jay

    Oh, and I used to be SOOOO angry. I can't remember the last time I was angry (no medication). Comas are GREAT for unresolved anger. In this case. But in retrospect, I was VERY angry when I woke up. And I had the worse headache you can possibly imagine for three months. (They dismissed it, said it comes with the territory)
