How are you doing? Have you had a good week? Or are you like me, troubled by the events in New York and other places? I think my faith in our government is a little shaken. How about you?
I mention traveler because that is what we are all doing, we are traveling. Yes, we go day to day at our jobs or our lives, but we are still traveling.
A lot of people don’t get it. You see they think life is about the destination. Even a lot of the Christians think about the destination of heaven or hell.
Life is not about the destination.
Life is a series of adventures. When one ends, another begins. They may be short adventures or long extended adventures, but they are adventures.
So what is life about?
Life is about the journey.
Life is about how you manage your day to day lives making the best out of what you have.
Some foolishly believe that the very rich have it made. Indeed their goal is to be the very rich!
Money is a tool. Much like a hammer or a saw, it is a tool. Some of us are very good at keeping up with our tools and managing them well. Some are not. I just want enough as not to have to worry about continually doing something to obtain it.
The more money that you have, the more people will find a way to get it from you. If you were to win the lottery let’s say, do you have any idea how many “friends” you would suddenly have?
Every charity of the world would play to your emotions trying to extract some part of your windfall.
Your family would also be at your door.
No, I do not play the lottery. Firstly, I understand math and statistics.
The lottery is a “stupid tax.” Let me say that another way, the lottery is designed to take money away from people who don’t understand math or statistics.
Casinos are also for the folks who don’t understand math.
All games of chance are geared for the house to win. All of those one-armed bandits are wired together to a network of computers. Some programmer writes the algorithms that tell the many machines out there what they can pay out on any given time.
They must have some payouts, or people would not go. They don’t pay for those fancy casinos with their own money… In short, its rigged.
You’re best chances or odds if you will are on games that are not electronic. Poker, Keno, Roulette to name a few. The odds are still against you but, not as bad as the one-armed bandits.
I talk about the game of chance and poker and our government because of the revelations of this week. Bernie was cheated. To be absolutely fair, Bernie was wheeling and dealing toward to end of the primary. He was lobbying the DNC for his own jet, and a house on the beach so he would not contest the results and withdraw and of course support Hillary.
With rigged elections, one has to wonder just how sacrosanct our elections truly are.
There are governments in the world today who rig elections to stay in power, are we doing that?
The Clinton machine cheated millions of Americans who voted for Bernie. The mainstream media is downplaying it or not giving it any airtime. Liberal talking heads are spinning this behavior as usual!
Donna Brazil who is the whistleblower is the same person who before the debate gave Hillary the questions that she would be asked during the debate. Who are these people that we elected?
Why is she telling all now? She wrote a book and is marketing it. She was part of the machine and is now trying to get rich.
I try not to focus on this too much as there is little that I can do about it. I think that the media should be reporting the news and not be making up the news. I believe that Yellow Journalism is alive and well in this country.
- If you supported Bernie Sanders your vote was stolen.
- If you supported Martin O’Malley your vote was stolen.
- This is banana republic kind of stuff, and it happened here!
- Do you have feelings or thoughts about this?
How do we stop it from happening again? That is the real question. Was there an oversight process and if so, how did it fail?
I should be working on my novel, and I am writing a blog. Have you ever tried to get your head back into your story and away from life?
Currently, my story is traveling at faster than light speed away from the earth! Some crazy computer has just abducted my characters!
