Turn the Page

Not only a badass Bob Seger song, but a lesson to us all.

Turn the page.

How long will the politicians continue their ridiculously antiquated us-against-them infantile horseshit?

Republicans’ asses are chafed because Obama kicked their asses and now here comes Joltin’ Joe from Kokomo.

Democrats are chafed because Trump outmaneuvered and out campaigned them in ’16.

Turn the page is also the directions I give to the Domestic Despot when she gives me crap about anything.

Turning the page is an excellent thing, for example, if you are reading a good book.

Or when your girlfriend says or does something to inexorably alter your relationship.

And not in a good way.

And, as 83 percent of women agree, that whenever there is a strain in a relationship, it is always started by the female of the species.

I don’t make the rules; I just play by them.

New drama in our attempt to find our new abode. Still holed up in a very nice hotel, but ready to move in and get the doggies into their new back yard and me into my new pool.

The weather is awesome right now; it is serious golf weather. I have to get some practice in as my cuz from Cali might be coming by this fall.

He has always been a scratch golfer and I believe had scholarship opportunities to play.

I am lucky to break 100.

On the front nine.

No, not that bad, but I celebrate any score of mine of a bogey or better, so I am not very easy to please.

Rivalries and grudges get brought up when talking about turning the page.

Hatfields vs McCoys

United vs City

Union vs Confederacy

MaryAnn vs Ginger

Us vs Them

And yes, Republicans vs Democrats

This is my appeal to both parties: try to remember the very first time you were struck with the patriotic idea of serving the people?

Dig deep.

Capture the essence of what you truly believe in, aside from dogma or sanctions of any kind. Then admit that there is one guiding principle you operate under.

Divisiveness and hate.

I know that’s two words, but not really if you think about it.

They are synonyms.

Knock it off.

If aliens start dropping from the sky, I find it very doubtful that the human race will operate with the usual divisiveness and hatred with which it normally functions.

When will it stop?

Republicans are not allowed to have sex with Democrats?

I can’t figure out who the winner is in that scenario.

I used to love watching West Wing not only because Martin Sheen’s presidential personae was a big Notre Dame fan, but he actually reminds me of JFK.

This whole January coup thing serves as a stain on our Republic, and I am sure I am not the only person who has grown weary of listening to Nazis regurgitate the spewings of yet another madman.

Yes, it is your RIGHT to say and do stupid shit, but you would be much better off if you only did one thing.

Turn the page.

Stay well.
