Chaos at the top!

Chaos at the top!

Thursday March 12, 2015

The arrogant, corporate-controlled Republicans are doing a good job in their determination to
bring down our country. Giving standing ovations to that war-monger Israeli Prime Minister,
Netanyahu, a reincarnated Hitler, and sending a seditious letter, signed by 47 ignorant senators,
to Iran, attempting to undermine on-going negotiations re their making a nuclear weapon, brands
them as TRAITORS.

When ignorant voters gave control of the House and Senate to Republican, it will be a prime
example of the Biblical saying: “We reap what we sow.” How true it is that “ignorance is bliss,”
and that makes us the most blissful nation in the world!

A Zapatista Prophet Stays in Our Home for Ten Days!
Mike Esteva
Last month my wife Peggy and I had a prophet in our home: Gustavo Esteva….
….Gustavo was once an IBM executive, and an official high-up in the Mexican government. At one time he was
also a revolutionary guerrilla. Now he calls himself a de-professionalized intellectual and itinerant
story-teller. He’s the founder of an alternative university (Unitierra). He has authored more than 30 books.
Our threatened survival is where Gustavo started (our conversation). He said our world stands in a position
of unprecedented danger. It is threatened by climate chaos, oligarchical (ruled by a few) governments,
tremendous wealth disparities, an economic system that simply doesn’t work, schools and communications
media that propagandize rather than inform, and by an emerging and universal police state with its system
of perpetual war that (suicidally) defends the status quo. Under the present world order, the line between
governments, the military, the police and the judiciary on the one hand and the criminals and thugs on the
other has completely disappeared. Not a pretty picture.
The 2012 National Defense Authorization Act upheld by the U.S. Supreme Court permits the U.S. military
to invade our homes without a warrant, arrest us without charges, and imprison us indefinitely without
trial, legal representation or due process.

I have no reason to know if anyone reads what I write. It really doesn’t matter because there is only a
tiny chance that the U.S. will keep from self-destructing. I base my thinking mostly by what I read in
the website www.opedNews that contains articles by very knowledgeable people that contains information
you won’t get in your newspaper or via the “news” on T.V. Our only hope for national long-range survival
is for informed people to know what the hell is really going on in our country, and for them to vote
accordingly. Personally, I don’t believe it will happen. The vast majority of Americans are either uninformed
(ignorant) or have “I don’t give a shit” attitude.

Let me back up a bit. I consider myself to be well-informed but I DO have an “I don’t give a shit attitude’
re politics. I didn’t vote in the last presidential election and won’t vote in the one coming up because
both parties SUCK! However,if a there is a candidate who tells it like it is, commiserates with working people
and goes after the rich folks and warmongers running the show, I will eagerly vote for him or her. However,
I don’t see that happening. Corporations, via their campaign contributions run the show, and it’s virtually
impossible to win an election without their support.

In 12 days I will be 94, so I say to myself, “Why do you give a shit?” and resign myself to eat, drink and be
merry. My time is running out – FAST!

The Search for the Fountain of Youth

Thursday, April 9, 2015 9 p.m. – Racquetball Day –

I think I found it. All I need do now is stay healthy!
After playing 5 games, I showered and picked up my wife, May, and a copy of the magazine called
AGING TREE (Google it.). The cover headline: FOUNTAIN OF YOUTH FOUND! In Letter from the Editor,
Corey Shenk said, among other things:
I think the “Fountain of Youth” is within all of us. We make the choices about what we believe,
what we eat, how we act toward others, how much we laugh…the decisions we make every day.
Ultimately at the end of the day, you are the only one that can allow anyone to make you feel
one way or another. Be who you are…smile, laugh, consult your higher power (whatever it may be),
eat, enjoy those around you, be kind to others, and enjoy an activity that lights up your life
and makes you feel like a child again. Yes. We found the “Fountain of Youth.” It’s the laughing
child within us all.
If you red my blogs, you know how I found the Fountain of Youth via my regimen, my lifestyle and
my perspective on Life.
The following is self-explanatory:

Oh, I forgot. Would Dr. Oz like to try me out on the racquetball court? I’m 94. (April 29th)
How old is he?

For photos of me go to:

I have no idea what SAG/AFTRA is/are. Never been on your show, or any other for that matter.

Example of my sense of humor:

When a small amount of blood was found in my urine, mu urologist ordered a C/T scan to see if there
was a tumor causing it. When I entered the lab, a young impertinent young lady checked out my vitals,
while an older woman at a small desk shuffled some papers. After finishing her routine, the young lady
went to a closet, took out one of the bare-ass hospital gowns and tossed it at me saying authoritatively,
like I was a child, “Put this on and take off your pants.”
I put the gown across my left arm, walked up real close to her, startling her a bit when I made eye contact,
and said softly, “Honey, I’ll take off my pants if you’ll take off yours.”
The young lady was stunned by my audaciousness, but the older woman howled with laughter saying, “That’s the
first time anyone ever said that. You just made my day!”

Actor Robin William’s wife is being sued by his children re his assets. I had a similar experience with my
kids that is described in my Kindle ebook: I Hope I Outlive My Greedy kids – The diary of a disillusioned widower.

Of course, nothing will come of it. I am resigned to the fact that being a
nobody who is facing the difficult task of trying to be a somebody, is basically an exercise in futility. Then,
I say to myself, “What the Hell, old Man, what else have you got to do?? And I do it! It’s the Don Quixote in me
I can’t resist. Arrivederci!

Women are the ones who can save the world!

Women are the ones who can save the world!

Wednesday April 8, 2015
I have simple solution for world-wide peace. Replace all of the stupid, war-mongering men
in charge of the countries and corporations with women. My logic? It’s summed up in the saying,
“Men are from Mars, named after the God of War and women are from Venus, named after the God of Love.
I suspect that men are generally aggressive and combative due the primitive heritage going way back
to the Stone Age when they had to hunt and kill animals larger than themselves for food while their
mates remained at “home” caring for the kids and doing the cooking.
Right now, most men are now far removed from their chimpanzee cousins who establish territories they
stake out with urine and protect with a vengeance. Add to this their battles for sexual dominance
that can be fatal. One of the common attributes of most male mammals are their constant strenuous
fights for the privilege to have sex with one or more of the desirable females in their group.
I believe it’s mainly the “territorial instinct” among men that causes wars. Google territorial wars
and check out the lists in Wikipedia to see what I am talking about. A case in point right now is
the refusal of Israel to allow for a Palestinian State.
One of the major problems with my proposal is that the vast majority of women have babies and feel
obligated to nurture them during the early stages of development, another is to be the home-maker
and keeper.
All I know is that wars are stupid, started and sustained by stupid men. Perhaps another solution is
to force those that start wars be the ones that fight them. If all of our congressmen were subject
to the dangers of IED (Improvised Explosive Devises) that blow away the limbs of our servicemen or
kill them, they would not be so keen to settle disputes by bombing the hell out of pseudo-enemies
using drones, that also “accidentally kill innocent men, women and children in what is euphemistically
called “collateral damage.”

Wake up folks, it may be later than you think!

Greetings Fellow Americans
Tuesday April 7, 2015 8 p.m.

I just finished watching Wheel of Fortune with wife, May, which is what we usually do after supper. We share chores, when
she cooks, I do the kitchen; when I cook she does them. We are riding on Cloud Nine right now. Most of our bills have been
paid (the biggest: $5200 in Real Estate Taxes) and we now afford to go to Wendy’s after racquetball.

I am blessed to have such a loving companion as my days dwindle down to a precious few.

I am also blessed with having TWO PURPOSES IN LIFE. First and foremost, I want to do all I can to help people be all that they
can be, via my writing and, secondly, I would love to have the experience of being FAMOUS. Realistically, there’s little chance
that will happen, but the thought that it MIGHT is very motivating and fun to think about.

Right now I am woking on my 16th KINDLE ebook titled: THE GREAT AMERICAN DREAM NIGHTMARE. The subtitle: Is the U.S. destined to
become a Giant Concentration Camp? In researching it, this is one of the things I found out:

Justice Antonin Scalia says World War II style
internment camps could happen again
Joel Gerhke
February 3, 2914
Justice Antonin Scalia predicts that the Supreme Court will eventually authorize another wartime abuse of Civil Right
such as the internment camps for Japanese-Americans during World War II.
“You are kidding yourself if you think the same thing will not happen again.” Scalia told the University of Hawaii law
school while discussing Korematsu vs. United States, the ruling in which the court gave its imprimatur to the internment camps.

There over 600 prison camps in the United States, all fully operational and ready to receive prisoners. They are all staffed
and even surrounded by full-time guards, but they are all empty. These camps are to be operated by FEMA (Federal Emergency
Management Agency) should Martial Law need to be implemented in the United States.
The Rex 84 Program was established on the reasoning that if a mass exodus of illegal aliens crossed the Mexican/US border,
they would be quickly rounded up and detained in detention centers by FEMA. Rex 84 allowed many military bases to be closed
down and to be turned into prisons.
Operation Cable Splicer and Garden Plot are the two sub programs which will be implemented once the Rex 84 program is initiated
for its proper purpose. Garden Plot is the program to control the population. Cable Splicer is the program for an orderly
takeover of the state and local governments by the federal government. FEMA is the executive arm of the coming police state
and thus will head up all operations. The Presidential Executive Orders already listed on the Federal Register also are part
of the legal framework for this operation.
The camps all have railroad facilities as well as roads leading to and from the detention facilities. Many also have an airport
nearby. The majority of the camps can house a population of 20,000 prisoners. Currently, the largest of these facilities is just
outside of Fairbanks, Alaska. The Alaskan facility is a massive mental health facility and can hold approximately 2 million people.

To Freedom Fighters
Whistle-Blowers, the World Over

This simple quotation from Founding Father Thomas Paine’s The American Crisis not only describes the beginnings of the
American Revolution, but also the life of Paine himself. Throughout most of his life, his writings inspired passion,
but also brought him great criticism. He communicated the ideas of the Revolution to common farmers as easily as to
intellectuals, creating prose that stirred the hearts of the fledgling United States. He had a grand vision for society:
he was staunchly anti-slavery, and he was one of the first to advocate a world peace organization and social security
for the poor and elderly.

Thomas Paine (1737) was an English and American political activist, philosopher, political theorist and revolutionary.
As the author of the two most influential pamphlets at the start of the American Revolution, he inspired the rebels in
1776 to declare independence from Britain. His ideas reflected Enlightenment-era rhetoric of transnational human
rights. He has been called “a corsetmaker by trade, a journalist by profession, and a propagandist by inclination”.
Born in Thetford, England, in the county of Norfolk, Paine emigrated to the British American colonies in 1774 with the

help of Benjamin Franklin, arriving just in time to participate in the American Revolution. Virtually every rebel read
(or listened to a reading of) his powerful pamphlet Common Sense (1776), the all-time best-selling American title
which crystallized the rebellious demand for independence from Great Britain. His The American Crisis (1776–83) was a
pro-revolutionary pamphlet series. Common Sense was so influential that John Adams said, “Without the pen of the author
of Common Sense, the sword of Washington would have been raised in vain.”

Common Sense sold about 150,000 copies in 1776, a tribute to both the persuasiveness of Paine’s argument and the clarity a
nd power of his literary style. Addressing a mass audience unfamiliar with legal precedents, classical learning, and complex
rhetoric, Paine strove for simplicity. The message conveyed by his style was of a piece with his democratic politics: to
understand the nature of politics, all it takes is common sense.

Thomas Paine was an influential 18th-century writer of essays and pamphlets. Among them were “The Age of Reason,” regarding
the place of religion in society; “Rights of Man,” a piece defending the French Revolution; and “Common Sense,” which was
published during the American Revolution. “Common Sense,” Paine’s most influential piece, brought his ideas to a vast audience,
swaying (the otherwise undecided) public opinion to the view that independence from the British was a necessity
Our founding fathers, under the inspired leadership of people like George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Benjamin Franklin and
Patrick Henry, broke the chains that bound them to the rapacious British Empire.

Today, more than ever, we need a new group of Founding Fathers to break the chains with which rapacious Corporate and Political
Humanoids are binding us. We are not only in dire need a Charismatic Leader, we also need an alternative to the two corrupt
political parties now destroying our precious country.

John W. Whitehead is a constitutional attorney and head of the Rutherford
Institute In his book: Battlefield America he says:

“The outlook for civil liberties grows bleaker by the day, from the government’s embrace of indefinite detention for U.S. citizens
and armed surveillance drones flying overhead to warrantless surveillance of phone, email and Internet communications, and
prosecutions of whistle-blowers. The homeland is ruled by a police-industrial complex, an extension of the American military empire..
Everything that our founding fathers warned us against is now the new norm. The government has trained its sights on the American people.
We have become the enemy, All the while, the American people remain largely oblivious.”

P.S. Do you think I am being monitored by NSA, the FBI and the CIA? According to whistle-blower Edward Snowden, I probably am. Ah well,
if tried and convicted under the Patriot Act, the prosecutors would be frustrated because I would not be spending many years in prison at age 94!

True Love Is Unconditional and Never Dies

Sunday April 5, 2015 5 pm

Just killing time before we head for the Golden Coral for our Easter Dinner. It’s in Port Orange,
about 15 miles from our home and we will be dining with Robert, my frequent partner in racquetball
who’s a great player. Last Thursday, we won 6/6 games, with him doing most of the work But, I do
make a contribution with my power, Z serve. In one game I made 8 points in a row in an 11 point game!

At the suggestion of wife May, I wrote a screenplay based on my book: The Diary of a Dying Man. I
titled it True Love Never Dies. We check out lots of movies from the local library, and only about 1/10
is worth watching. True Love Never Dies would make a great movie, but there is no way Hollywood would
touch it because there’s no blatant sex nor mayhem. Then too, there is no way for a nobody to make it.
As with many other ventures, success too often depends upon who you know whose already there.

Well, I’m not completely thwarted. I put the screenplay into ebook format and it’s available at
Amazon’s KINDLE store. If you read it, you will see why it is superior to most of the crappy movies
out there.

Here is a song I wrote for the movie. Sing it to you fiancee:

Folk Song
There are treasures on earth
that are hidden from view,
like the air’s clear vapors
that turn into dew.

We struggle and sweat
this cruel world to survive,
not one of us here now,
will long be alive.

But we’ll never give up
Life’s too precious to leave,
We’ll keep right on searching
He will help us believe.

I looked the world over,
Wandering for years,
Finding nothing but grief
And shed lots of tears.

I sought self-fulfillment
In all the wrong places,
My biggest mistakes
Were all pretty faces.

I asked myself often
“What good is success?
And the fast cars I have,
Or even the way that I dress.”

Is this all there is?
Hypocrites and liars,
False people galore
With their phony desires?

Then suddenly I knew,
When my heart nearly burst,
I was searching the wrong places,
Not putting God first.

But who is this God
Who hovers above?
Can He be the source
Of our yearning for love?

To love and be loved
Is the goal of the wise,
For they know full well,
that, like God,
true love never dies.

Vive la Vie

Part 2: Thwarting the Grim Reaper

Saturday April 4, 2015 9 p.m.

After grieving for a few months after first wife, Babs, died I became desperate for companionship.
How do you cope with suddenly being alone after 57 years of a happy marriage that was almost like
an addiction? Well, one evening while at my computer I got a call from woman who wanted to speak
to Babs. She was the daughter of old friends and a student in Babs’ 4th grade class. When I
reluctantly had to tell her Babs died, she asked if she could come by and give me a hug. The
long story is in my ebook To Baby Boomers with Love. Briefly, we soon became an item and eventually
married. It was during the third and last year of our marriage that I became aware of the fact that
she was a coffin-chasing predator,and it was during that third year that I began coughing and spitting
up globs of phlegm that a some 6 different doctors could not diagnose.

She was a movie buff, and well-acquainted with the movies Arsenic and Old Lace, and Misery where
Kathy Bates was trying to murder an invalid writer in her care. Sparing you the details, I am convinced
and believe that my new wife, Jeanmarie (Baker) TRIED TO KILL ME TWICE. The first attempt was via the use
of the ant poison SEVIN that contained arsenic, and I later realized she was putting it in the wine I
drank every night along with cheese and crackers just before retiring. That’s why I suffered almost a full
year coughing up phlegm.

The 2nd time she tried to kill me was when she provoked a bloody fight that landed both of us in jail.
It happened one evening after I returned home from racquetball and found all of the many lights and fans
all spitefully turned on because she knew it would provoke me, and it did, real good! Using the racquet
in my hand I smashed all of the artificial flower arrangements she made, and when I got to the bedroom,
there she was, at age 56 and 5 ft. 10 in. tall and weighing 200 pounds glaring at her 82 year-old benefactor
(she was penniless before I met her) at 5 ft. 6 in. and only 155 lbs. Having taken martial arts classes,
she floored me in an instant and plumped down atop me with one of her massive tits covering my mouth.
Instant panic. (The Bitch was trying to SMOTHER ME-A GREAT WAY TO GET AWAY WITH MURDER!) I reached up,
grabbed her hair with my strong right arm and WOUND UP ON TOP OF HER. I told her to quit fighting but
she kept pummeling my face with her fists. Then God intervened knowing I couldn’t handle her if I let her
get up. For some inexplicable reason, I stretched out my right arm and my hand grasped a porcelain
insulator like the ones used on power line poles.

Well, I was furious and desperate, and swatted the side of her head with the insulator to subdue her.
She wouldn’t quit, so the next time I swatted her more directly and harder causing blood to splatter
all over her face and me. Again, to shorten the story, we both called 9-1-1, got handcuffed and taken to
jail. Since it was a “he said/she said” situation, neither of us did real jail time. To keep from
going to trial, I opted for probation and anger management classes, which is another interesting story
I will relate later.

Believe it or not, I don’t regret the experience. I viewed it from the perspective of a writer and sure ’nuff
it’s given me something interesting to experience and write about. Like a bitchy sister-in-law once arrogantly
said to me when she wanted me to do something I didn’t want to do: “What else have you (old man) got to do?”
That was 20 years ago, and it still sticks in my craw!


Thwarting the Grim Reaper

Friday April 3, 2015 10:00 p.m.

Three weeks to 94! No complaints. I am blessed and grateful for my current existence. I believe, and hope, that
I have a cat’s genes for “nine lives.” The Grim Reaper beckoned me six times so far, and God saved my ass
each time. The first encounter was when I was 8 years old living in Brooklyn, N.Y. I hit a girl on the head
with a cup of ices and took off running with her close behind. As unthinking kids will do, I dashed off of
the sidewalk into the street and got creamed by a horrified driver who just could not stop in time. An aunt
at the scene said the rear wheel of the car stopped just inches from my head.
Of course I was unconscious and bloody. When I woke up, a guy in a white jacket asked me if would like an
ice cream cone, and I later regretted saying, “No.” It turns out that I was taken to the corner drug store
for treatment, was bandaged up and in good enough condition to go home.

A 2nd encounter with Death occurred when I absent-mindedly ran a Stop Sign while on my motorcycle and god
hit broadside, causing the bike to spin like a top and fling my airborne. I landed in a sitting position
on a curb, and when asked if I were all right, I said, “I don’t’ know yet,” and proceeded to take a mental
inventory looking for areas of pain. There were none, but after being taken to the hospital, they discovered
a bad injury in my left shin that had to be stitched. As I lay on the gurney, a nurse approached with an
identification tag, and I pleaded with her, “Please don’t attach that to my big toe!” She laughed and
attached it to my wrist. God was with me when I was hit by the car. It hit the back of the bike just
inches from my leg, putting the bike into a spin. Had I been hit directly in the middle of the bike,
that would have been all she wrote.

The 3rd encounter happened in 1992 when I was 71. I had just returned to Florida after attending my father’s
funeral in New York. Usually, I could run a mile in about 10 minutes. On this particular day, which was a
Friday, I was unable to finish the first quarter-mile lap. I not only found it difficult to breathe, but
also experienced some pressure in my chest that felt like pleurisy. When my upper back began to ache, I
quit and decided to try to see my doctor that very afternoon. Of course, it was Friday, which meant I might
have to wait till Monday to see him. When, on the phone, I described my symptoms to the receptionist, an
ex-student of mine, she consulted with the doctor, and I was advised to come in immediately. After Doc
finished his routine stethoscopic examination, with inconclusive results, I was hooked up to an EKG
machine for a more precise check on my heart’s condition. I never expected to hear the news. With no
hesitation or emotion, Doc looked up from the EKG readout and said, “Mr. Sganga, you have angina.”

“Angina!?” I said in disbelief, “How can you tell?”

Showing me some squiggly lines on the readout, he replied, “These inverted T’s are a sure sign.”
The bottom line: I underwent two angioplasties (ballooning of arteries) that worked in preventing
me from having a heart attack.

The 4th encounter was once again a matter of “pure luck.” (Divine intervention?) I was now 81.
Since my Urologist found I had a bit of blood in my urine, he had me undergo an IVP (x-rays taken
of the urinary track as dye is injected into a vein) to check out my lower abdomen for cancers.
While sitting opposite me in his office he said, “There are no signs of cancer in your abdomen,
but you have an abdominal aortic aneurysm.” “What’s that?” I asked. Showing me the x-ray of my
abdomen, he pointed to a bulge in the artery where it branched off into my legs. Continuing, he
said, “I advise you to have this taken care of immediately because if it bursts, it will fill
your abdomen with blood and kill you almost instantly”
Bottom line: I underwent a “Triple A” (short for Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm) operation that was
terrible! Spent a whole week in the hospital on a liquid diet that caused me to look like a Holocaust
My Urologist, by pure luck on my part, saved my life. Jogging with the ailment was very dangerous.
It killed Einstein, my father and a much younger brother-in-law. It is an insidious disease with
no symptoms that can only be detected by a doctor looking for it, and it is recommended that
everyone over 50 get checked out. If it bursts, there’s no way to get to a hospital fast enough
to save you. They measure the size of the bulge in centimeters and mine was a top-of-the line 7 cm.

I’ve been writing now for more than 2 hours and I’m tired, and it’s not smart to write when you’re
tired. Stay tuned for the next installment.

A Miracle That Happened to Me

Tuesday April 2, 2015 11:00 p.m. to contact me:

I lost my first wife, Babs, after 57 years of being happily married when she was killed by a
second chemo treatment that should not have been given at the Bert Fish Medical Center in
New Smyrna Beach on October 4, 2003. The cruel oncologist responsible for her death was a
Pakistanini-trained doctor named Abdul Sorathia. The full story is in my Kindle ebook:
To Baby Boomers, with Love.

I am now married to a wonderful, loving lady whose maiden name was May Locke. We have
been loving companions for five years and our attachment grows stronger daily. She will
be 64 on July 1, and the 30 year-difference in our ages is null and void. No couple
can be more compatible than we are. And, how lucky I am to have such a great companion
at my age, which will be 94 come April 29th.

How we met is the Miracle. I was a lonesome and desperate-for-companionship widower who
maintained the same blog you have just tuned into. Well, wife May. who lived in Alton,
New Hampshire, and who was a fan of George Clooney, Googled his name to check out some
of his pictures. Lo and behold, amongst his pictures, was a PICTURE OF BABS with a link
to my website. She visited my website and read what I said about missing my wonderful
wife and how much I still loved her, and decided to email me. In my blog I mentioned my
book, The Diary of a Dying Man, and in her email, May said she thught it would make a
good movie, and that I should write a script for it. After telling her I had no idea
as to how to write a script, she recommended I read a book titled: The Scriptwriter’s Bible,
which I did.

To make a long story short, ater exchaging a bunch of emails, I invited her to cone on
down to help me write the movie, and therein lies the Miracle. We kind of fell in love
via our emails, and WOW! she agreed to come down! and we have been an item ever since.
We wrote the movie which, of course, we could not find a producer for, so I put it in
a Kindle ebook format and it’s available from Amazon under the title True Love Never Dies.

Soon after May came dow, I asked her how she found my website, and she told me about
finding Babs’ picures in the midst of hundreds of Clooney pictures. You know what? I
Googled Clooney images and Babs’ picture was nowhere to be found! Not then, nor now.
Thank you, God, for helping me avoid an old man’s gloomy last few years! May is not
only a wonderful companion, she’s also my inspiration. After our marriage I wrote

How to Live Longer and better

Wednesday April 1, 2015 8:30 p.m.
The March 2, 2015 issue of TIME magazine had a picture
of a baby on its cover with this squib:

This baby could live to be 142 years old.

Inside the magazine, the title of the article is:
The New Age of Much Older Age

Everyone wants to live longer, and science is starting to make that happen. But living better will be the real challenge-and opportunity.

The beginning of the article:
We live in extraordinary times, and thanks to medical and scientific advances that even a generation ago would have sounded like science
fiction, our lives are getting longer. An American born today has a projected average lifespan 20 full years longer than one born in 1925,
and we are, as a society, growing old. For the first time in U.S. history, the number of people over 60 exceeds those under age 15.
The article ends this way:
As with most matters involving health, it comes down in large measure to lifestyle-diet, exercise, adequate sleep and positive attitude….
That, if nothing else, puts a sweet twist on the hard rule that all lives must end: enjoy the time you’ve got, and you just might get
more of it.
If you’ve read my blogs or my books, you know I am 94 (April 29th), you know my lifestyle (Read my ebook: A Nonagenarian’s Path to
Living Longer and Better) and you know I have a sense of humor. (For example, I went to Walmart, bought a leaf rake and when I got
to the cashier, she told me I had to use the screw she pointed to, to attach the rake to the handle. I said, “No problem, M’am,
I’m good at screwing.” She burst out laughing, looked me up and down and said, “I bet you are!”)
Which reminds me. After my usual one to 2-hour nap today, I woke up feeling a bit romantic, and after some aggressive coaxing and foreplay,
we enjoyed honeymooning while soft music emanated from our TV. The interesting thing is that, at my advanced age, the thrill is still there,
and I don’t have to be concerned about my erection lasting more than 4 hours because I take no pills, not even vitamins!
I mention this because I believe a healthy sex life is a big plus in extending one’s life. (See my blog on January 12, 2015) The article
supports my belief where it cites research that verifies that married couples live longer than singles.


Vive la Vie!


Wake up folks, it’s later than you think!

Wednesday April 1, 2015 9:45 a.m.

This is not an April Fool’s joke. It’s deadly serious, and unfortunately, the vast majority of my ignorant
fellow Americans don’t see the Grim Reaper waiting patiently in the wings and haven’t a clue about what is
really going on in our country right now. Our traditional corporate-controlled media sucks. I go to and the Deudge Report for the Truth. Read this and weep:

A Middle East Holocaust
By Paul Craig Roberts

Dr. Roberts was Assistant Secretary of the US Treasury for Economic Policy in the Reagan Administration.
He was associate editor and columnist with the Wall Street Journal, columnist for Business Week and the
Scripps Howard News Service. He is a contributing editor to Gerald Celente’s Trends Journal. He has had
numerous university appointments. His book: The Failure of Laissez Faire Capitalism and Economic Dissolution
of the West.

I have been around for a long time and have experienced more than most. The current situation in my experience
is the most dangerous time of all for humanity.
Nuclear weapons are no longer restrained by the Cold War MAD doctrine. Washington has released them into pre-emptive
first strike form.
The targets of these pre-emptive strikes — Russia and China — know it, because Washington proudly proclaims its
immorality in public documents describing its war doctrine.
The result is to maximize the chance of nuclear war. If you were Russia and China, and you knew that Washington
had a war doctrine that permits a surprise nuclear attack, would you sit there waiting while Washington cranks
up its anti-Russian and anti-Chinese propaganda machine, demonizing both countries as a threat to “freedom and democracy”?
The fools in Washington are playing with nuclear fire. Noam Chomsky points out that in a less dangerous time than currently
exists, we came very close to nuclear war.
Harold Pinter, one of the last Western intellects, understood the danger in Western arrogance. He denounced the West’s
crimes and called for the crimes to be subject to established law before it is too late for humanity. In his 2005 Nobel
Prize Acceptance Speech, he said…
“We have brought torture, cluster bombs, depleted uranium, innumerable acts of random murder, misery, degradation and
death to the Iraqi people and call it ‘bringing freedom and democracy to the Middle East.’ How many people do you have
to kill before you qualify to be described as a mass murderer and a war criminal? One hundred thousand? More than enough,

I would have thought. Therefore it is just that Bush and Blair be arraigned before the International Criminal Court of Justice.”
Also, an Iraqi Holocaust by Gideon Polya and Genocide In Iraq by Abdul-Haq Al-Ani and Tarik Al-Ani provide abundant evidence
for convicting Bush and Blair.
Dr. Gideon Polya is a professor of science in one of Australia’s leading universities. He has a moral conscience, something
increasingly rare in the Western world.
His articles are based largely on the just published by Clarity Press two-volume heavily documented Genocide in Iraq.
Abdul-Haq Al-Ani is a British-educated lawyer with a Ph.D. in International Law and a Ph.D. in electronics engineering.
Tarik Al-Ani, is an architect, translator, and researcher.
Currently I am reading the two-volume work and intend to review it. But Professor Polya’s articles suffice as an introduction
to Genocide in Iraq. Washington has committed a terrible crime in our name. Washington not only murdered Iraq, Washington has
murdered the Middle East. Washington and its despicable vassals — “the Coalition of the Willing” — are responsible for a
Middle East Holocaust.
For people in the Anglo-American world who have a moral conscience, the facts are soul-wrenching. The populations of the countries
whose governments comprised “the Coalition of the Willing” are contaminated with war crimes committed by their governments in the
Iraq Genocide. A progressive modern state was obliterated, and 2.7 million Iraqi people were murdered.
The crime was covered up with propaganda that demonized Saddam Hussein and created fear of nonexistent weapons of mass destruction.
The Iraqi genocide was based on a lie, and both Bush and Blair knew it. The two satanic leaders simply decided to destroy a people
who they first demonized and marginalized.
Dick Cheney and the neocons continue to justify the genocide and the illegal torture regime that they created in order to produce
fake “terrorists” as a justification for their war crimes.
The Western media, especially the New York Times, is also complicit in the Iraqi Genocide, as are the insouciant Western peoples
themselves who stood by cheering while millions of people were destroyed on the basis of a blatant and transparent lie.
What does the West represent? Greed? Lies? War? Torture? War Crimes? Selfishness, Intolerance? Destruction of life on earth?
The “Christian” West is a master at propaganda and self-deception. Look at the evangelical churches. They support a criminal,

inhumane regime while professing to be followers of Christ.
Look at American “conservatives.” They support the militarized police state. They support the routine police murders of dark-skinned
American citizens. They support every war Washington dreams up and even more. Indeed, there are not enough wars for the satisfaction
of Congressional Republicans who now want war with Russia and with Iran.
Look at the Republicans in Congress and in state governments. They hate the environment. They love polluters. They worship Israel and
Israel’s destruction of the Palestinians and the ongoing theft of the Palestinians’ country, a 60-year old activity. Just look at the
map of shrinking Palestine. More is stolen each day.
Washington has supported this theft of an entire country. Yet, Washington is able to masquerade as a great defender of human rights.
Whose rights? Washington’s and Israel’s. No one else’s rights count.
How does the world survive the American-Israeli aggression? Probably it will not. The evil is now directed at Iran, Russia, and China.
These countries cannot be bombed year after year after year with no consequences to the bombers.
Iran is limited in its destructive ability. But Iran could destroy Saudi Arabia and Israel. Russia and China can destroy the US and all
of Washington’s vassal states. The intensity of Washington’s propaganda war is driving the world to destruction.
How can it be stopped when Putin himself says over and over that Washington continually ignores everything that the Russian government
says. Putin is the peacemaker. Every peace proposal he brings is ignored by Washington whose response is to beat the drums of war louder.
Unless European governments recognize the danger in Washington’s aggression and dissolve NATO, planet earth hasn’t long to live.
The American public needs to understand the consequences of Washington’s illegality and criminality. On the one hand it means that those
subject to Washington’s aggression have to endure war crimes, but on the other hand it means a growing hatred for America. As Washington’s
easy targets are used up, Washington engages countries that can reply to force with force.

Unless the neoconservatives are ejected from the Obama regime and banned from inclusion in any future American government, mushroom clouds
will go up over Washington, New York, Boston, Atlanta, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Seattle, Dallas, Houston, St. Louis, Cleveland, Chicago.
The American mid-west, which hosts the ICBM silos, will become uninhabitable except by cockroaches.
Americans, and the populations of the American puppet states, desperately need to understand that Washington is incapable of speaking the
truth about anything. Washington is an evil force. Washington is Sauron. Washington is Satan.
Look at Iraq. Look at Afghanistan. Look at Libya. Look at Syria. Look at Somalia. Look at Ukraine. Nothing but destruction comes from Washington.
Will life on earth be Washington’s next victim?

Edmund Burke said: “Evil thrives when good stands idly by.” Wake up America, it’s later than you think!
