Sensory Overload

How many planes have you heard over your head today
How many automobile horns and motors did you hear today
Did the sounds of  police sirens. ambulances and fire engines fill your ears today
What of the dogs barking
The babies crying
The trains screeching to a halt
How about the music blaring from storefront speakers
And then the helicopter from the news stations
The school bells ringing the change of classes, and the church bells tolling the hours, quarter hours, and half past
The mother yelling at her kid to shut up
The televisions selling everything and nothing
The heating systems rolling warmth
The eateries exhaust motors
Those noisy generators that turn on the lights
The police whistle that says stop and go
The drunk singing a song with unknown words
The weird one shouting the end of the world
A cat hissing preparing for attack
The other who always chants for us to repent
The vibration and drone of the jackhammer
The hiss of the steam through the street vents
A motorcycle with a pseudo muffler
The refrigerator engine
The washing machine
The dryer
The dishwasher
The doorbell
The telephone
The alarm clock
The sound of running water
The coffee pot hissing
How many engines have you heard today
How many machines have droned your ears to dullness
And your nerves to fray
To be happy to close your eyes to sleep
To wake from a dream with the sound of the garbage collection crew complaining about working while we no longer sleep

hillary and donald

Can she say, "That depends upon what your definition of Classified is?" Obviously Americans are loathe to prosecute a Former First Lady for any offense, and she will probably get away with here elitist rule of life, that she is entitled and deemed worthy of anything she chooses without earning any merit. And there are some females who are so wanting a woman president in their lifetime they will vote for anyone, whether or not they have the qualifications.

Benghazi is something she dismissed with, "the fog of war". But if her first interaction with war has her overcome with fog, how will she lead in other battles. How will she protect our troops.

Her honesty is not in question, we all have heard her vague non committal responses, with the look on her face noting that she hoodwinked another group of people into agreeing with what she has said when in fact she has said nothing.

For someone who has no accomplishments under her belt besides getting jobs that seem more like positions acquired through nepotism.

As a good democrat she is promising spending money we do not have to benefit those in need, with no plan for where the funds will come from.

The Republican front runner is a new face to the race for the White House, with gruff, aggressive behavior, with insults abounding. In his case you know his appetite for acquiring things and you must decide whether or not he is bucking for the job to improve the American condition or to advance his advantages, improving his conditions in life. We know our Representatives are far more financially well off after serving the people than  they were before their employment. Thinking about all the possibilities for his deal making.

 So far all the deals he had made have been to his advantage, and not necessarily others, i,e. creditors who lost their investments when his companies declared bankruptcy.

We mostly hear him insulting people, or praising himself.

Today he says he is refusing to participate in the upcoming debates because he has been insulted by the head of fox, and he does not like one of the moderators.

This guy is applying for a job, and the interview process is a standard operating procedure. What he in fact is saying to the people is hire me without me presenting myself for approval. You all know me. He is looking for the job without having any competition.

Have you heard him discuss anything, has there ever been a communication without mention of negative comments of the competition, or how great he is, or how stupid are those running the government. Often he simply rants and raves about how much money we owe, a lot of money. And that he will fix it, shall he file bankruptcy for America to fix it all?

He also wants to build a fence and export illegals. For decades we in America have tolerated corporations hiring illegal aliens as cheap labor, it has been discussed for years, and we all have participated in purchasing goods such as farm products that have been picked or harvested by illegal aliens and we have closed our eyes, and the government has allowed the practice to continue. Now everyone who will not benefit from their living in the USA wants them out. These people and their offspring should in fact be permitted to remain, should be documented and pay taxes. This idea of having them pay back taxes is absurd. They ought have work permits and be given the opportunity to study to become citizens. The have been workers, earning for their families doing jobs Americans do not want to do. Shame on us that we now want to throw them out.

Neither of these candidates have the qualifications to lead this nation to progress. There will be no emotional growth to enhance our futures, we will continue to slide into the dark ages.

The most important issue for Americans is education., ignorance our enemy.

We can fight isis with education, knowledge is what they are lacking, they do not know any thing but their religion. If we Americans show them the benefits of education, nothing will stop us. Education is a good job, sending people to school is better than sending them to war. Giving America to expand intellectually is the only way America will grow to greatness.

But the problem is: the media and the government have spread a breath of fear that has infected the population. Unemployment has furthered the epidemic, and both candidates are hoping we are so frightened that they will get us to choose an emotional response as opposed to an educated thinking mind to choose a leader. There is an air of crowd psychology that is growing into a mob, sad for us, we are going backwards when we ought choose forward.

Tennis Anyone

Can anyone explain why the tennis association tolerates the grunting professionals. Is it something totally necessary for tennis players to grunt and groan with every swing. Why, or are there any other so called professionals that vocalize their use of energy. And why do the fans tolerate such behavior, are they all deaf. Yes, it is a strategy to unnerve the opponent, to glean an advantage, but it is in such poor taste. Do they ever watch and listen to themselves, can they be proud of their behavior. Even football players do not  sound as foul. The sport has diminished since the likes of Maria Sharapova and the other Russian named players have appeared, as well as the men including Novak, too bad the fans and association tolerate such unprofessional behavior. The fans ought be insulted that they have to be subjected to the sounds of pigs squealing. Those contrived outbursts are more objectionable than that Spanish guy always playing with his butt. The tennis association ought to have a code of ethics for unprofessional  behavior, the player should be fined for demeaning the sport, lowering the standard, insulting the fans - perhaps even noise pollution. It they can fine Serena for her language why not the rest for poor sportsmanship. It would return the game to an enjoyable sport.
