Well,I am sitting here wondering if anyone else has days like me,I am sitting here at 3 :OO am,cant sleep,out of cigarettes,credit card is maxed out,store is closed at this time of morning anyway,cofffee pot is on the fritz and it is cold outside,on top of that I am in the middle of a horrendous writers block,but i cant help thinking how screwed up the U.S A. seems to be these days,it seems to me that there is bad news at every turn.Have people in this country gone slap crazy? or is it just me? When ever I venture out these days I always wonder if I will return or be cut down by some idiot with a grudge to settle,or some random act of violence.Just today my wife and I went to the post office,we passed about 10 police cars and some news reporters in a neighbors front yard,seems as if 3 teens decidid to steal a car in the next town over and then try to out run the police,then you hear of two teens in brundige georgia that robbed a young mother and shot her 1 year old while he was in a stroller.Yet the Government wants to send drones to kill Americans without a trial,a pope abdicates for the first time in 600 years and the supreme court is deliberating matters of whom can marry whom.Pardon me,but isn't this the way that ancient Rome ended? I think maybe the Government must be fiddling in the streets of washington these days,they sure aint doing much else,I would go out and purchase a gun for self protection,but I probably couldent find any ammo for it,either that or a policeman would take it away from me.
Ok,I'll admit that I am a bit morbid or morose this AM,but then again I am out of cigarettes and my coffee pot dont work and it's 3 in the morning.
Y'all have a great day and enjoy life to it's fullest. lol lol and lol
