Well, here we are on Tuesday morning and Obama is on vacation while our military is spread out over the world facing radiation dangers in Japan, civil war in the mid-east, Afghanistan /Iran/Iraq/N.Korea and God know what else and Obama is on vacation. And our democrats in all of our states think we should spend more money. Just in a city in California is having lay off almost 50% of is employees because 20% of its budget goes to pay pensions. The police there can retire at age 50 with 90% of their salary as a pension for life PLUS free medical. And they wonder why they are broke. Duh.

I would hope that anyone who reads my poetry understands that I write what comes to my mind and it doesn't mean I'm the reality of the words. I mean that just because I write about alcoholism does not mean I am the character in the poems. I write about those I've known and those I know and a very wide grouping that is of sinners and saints, those who know who and where they are going and those who are completely lost. I am empathic. I write in the first person because I feel the reality of what I am writing about. Like Dean Martin pretending to be drunk while performing I am not what it may seem. Just a thought as I know some out there who read what I write see the words and not the art or the understanding of the problem I am commenting on, nor do they understand that the comment is for the purpose of illustration and not my own personal reality.
