QUESTION - since I've been posting all these conglomerations - does anyone out there actually go visit other Authors' posts?
The original concept was that IF my comments to another Author were interesting enough, it might prompt others to go read them.
If the answer is NO - or I receive no answer to this question - should I stop posting all this CRAP under various and sundry titles?
The Tick is Clocking! ...
And Yet - More CRAP!

RE: John Martin’s - Health Care? -
JOHN - WELL PUT, MY FRIEND!
For 3+ years now, in order to survive RETIREMENT = LOSS OF EARNED INCOME - I work 3 days/week, delivering MEDS to sick people - mostly SENIORS, mostly 65 - 85 + ... and, with the passage of time, suddenly, I don't have anything for that poor old codger anymore - WHY? HE - SHE IS DEAD!
Death is the ultimate TRUTH - the ultimate FINALITY - the END OF THE ROAD!
Diabetes Testers, Diabetic Insulin and/or pills and Diabetic socks, wheel-chairs, crutches, canes, walkers, pain meds, heart pills, HBP pills, eye drops, nose drops, laxatives, suppositories, DEPENDS, ENSURE, cough drops, cough medicines, vitamins, supplements, and on, and on, and on, ad infinitum ...
It is truly RARE - if anyone actually gets BETTER! Not unlike cattle, FATTENED FOR THE KILL - (yeah, Steroids too!) - those glassy-eyed, over-medicated, hopeless, and many, many sufferers of Dementia - just STARE INTO SPACE - Totally oblivious to their environment, surroundings - and for some - even their NAMES, SPACE, OR TIME!
HOMES - no, not the acronym for The Great Lakes - but, for Senior Citizens, as they are called ... Senior Communities, Assisted Living, Renovated High-Rises, Miniscule Apartments for the Poor (some just a single ROOM) - OH Yeah - the 'Well-To-Do' which are few and far between live in beautiful sumptuous Condominiums - at least until that FINAL HOSPITAL STAY - when the family finances finally run out - and it ALWAYS DOES -
then, they are hustled into, and DUMPED - at one of the aforementioned - HOMES!
Way back in the late '70's, when I was selling Life, Health, and Disability Insurance, the Average American was Statistically THREE TO SIX MONTHS' AWAY FROM BANKRUPTCY!
Today, my guess is only 1-2 MONTHS!
NOTE TO: THE ADMINISTRATION, CONGRESS, GOVERNORS, MAYORS, ALL OTHER 'ELECTED' OR 'APPOINTED' OFFICIALS, CORPORATE CEO's, PHARMACEUTICAL MFRS., AND ALL THE 'WARMONGERS' OUT THERE ...
1. YOU HAVE BEEN 'SCREWING' ALL OUR PATRIOTIC VETERANS FOR DECADES ...
2. DITTO - ON ALL US 'SENIORS' ... AND NOW, AFTER GIVING YOURSELF 'COST-OF-LIVING RAISES' - HAVE THE AUDACITY TO TELL US, IN PRINT, THAT OUR SSA BENEFITS ARE BEING 'FROZEN' FOR 2 YEARS, BECAUSE THERE WAS NO COST-OF-LIVING' INCREASE! DUH?
3. I HOPE ALL YOU GREEDY 'S.O.B.'s DIE PREMATURELY AND BURN IN HELL !!!
Please pardon my 'French'! Peace ... Tom.
RE: My - Crapola ? Congress -
The Corruption is so bad, you could almost SMELL it!
You can smell it; that's why I left Washington, forever.
Ps: Frosty the Pumpkin is still here!
PPS: Edvard is definitely an Old Fart!
AH ... THE CESSPOOL OF THE POTOMAC - D.C.
DISTRICT OF CLOWNS -
DISTRICT OF COLLUSION -
DISTRICT OF CORRUPTION -
DISTRICT OF CALLOUSNESS -
DISTRICT OF CRAP-SHOOTERS -
DISTRICT OF CANTANKEROUSNESS -
DISTRICT OF COCK-AND-BULL CHARLATANS -
Did’ja notice how I 'cleaned' that last one up?
PEACE TO ALL MEN & WOMEN OF GOODWILL!

P.P.S. - I CANNOT TELL A LIE! I CONCUR WITH YOU ...
EDVARD - IS - AN OLD FART !!!
RE: Regis Auffray’s - Life: What’s It For? -
REG - let me add my two cents' worth ...
The PAST - it is history, over and done with - we cannot change it -
So let it go! Don’t Waste your Time!
The FUTURE - no one knows it, we cannot control it - why even worry about it? Any attempt is futile! Don’t Dwell on it!
The PRESENT - it is all we have - TODAY - what can/will/must I DO TODAY? Make the Most of each Day!
What's IT for? to Help others - to Share with others - to Enjoy Life with others - to Love others - Unconditionally!
What's IT all about? FAMILY!
When the 'chips are down' THEY are the only ones you can count on!
If you don't have a Family - GET ONE! Adopt one! If your Parents are Dead - Adopt others - Help them - Share with them - Enjoy Life with them - Love them!
If your first wife/husband Failed you - Betrayed you - Left you - SO WHAT!
Is that a reason to Quit Life? Find another! Try again! Be Brave! Be Brazen!
Be Happy you are ALIVE and able to take another CHANCE!
CARPE DIEM! SEIZE THE DAY!
“Today is the Beginning of the Rest of your Life!”
Quit 'crying in your beer!'
"Pick yourself up - Dust yourself off - Start right over again!"
In the final analysis, as you draw your last breath -
there are NO GUARANTEES!
Heaven? Hell? Spirit? Soul? You can never know - SO -
"Don't Worry! Be Happy" - as the song lyrics go ...
"Life: What's it For?" L-I-V-I-N-G !!! and G-I-V-I-N-G !!!
Peace - Tom.
RE: KARLA’S - Man, Am I Glad That’s Over! -
KARLA - WELL PENNED DEAR FRIEND!
2010 is a year of many elections - if the American people have learned nothing else from the past - it should be this -
VOTE AGAINST EACH AND EVERY INCUMBENT -
FOR EVERY OFFICE!
YOU WANT REAL ‘CHANGE’?
ELECT ‘NEW BLOOD’ INTO CONGRESS -
GET NEWER, LESS EXPERIENCED ‘CROOKS’!
IT WILL TAKE AWHILE, BEFORE THEY BECOME ‘CORRUPTED’!
PEACE - TOM.

IRAQ = BLOOD FOR OIL!
TWIN TOWERS = BLOOD FOR HATRED!

SEMPER FIDELIS! E PLURIBUS UNUM! DOMINUS VOBISCUM!
RE: Karla’s - Missing - Note and My Brain -
DEAR ‘STORMY’ - GOOD ‘POOP’!
A. Heads are not ‘glued’ on - they are ‘SCREWED’ on!
B. Been there - done that! Losin’ ‘stuff’ makes one think yer ‘SCREWY’!
C. Suggestion - try to create an Anagram with key words of the current ‘piece’ thoughts.
Sometimes this one word helps to recall some of the itty-bitty goodies yew can’t recall.
EXAMPLE - SCREW ... Some Crazy Rascal Eats Worms!
As Larry The Lounge-Lizard used to say:
“Peace ... Love ... and ... LOVE!” TK.
RE: My - ATOM vs. ADAM -
Interesting concept, puts a whole new perspective on living huh?
Be always safe,
KAREN - thanks, Doll - yeah, kinda like - GERMS R US! Tom.
Umm, interesting. I see this write has having real potential. Potential for a BBC comedy, no maybe a ragedy, wait perhaps a tragedy of the human comedy. Perhaps it could be the new Dr. Who. No wait......
DAN - to use Frank Boswell’s word ‘Dramedy’ - perhaps?
A comedic drama that exposes all of mankind’s fractured ‘brilliances’?
Maybe more like DR. HUH? Thanks for comments. Tom.
Yeah, we could just be quarks inside a living being. Kinda like bacteria that lives in us.
HAHA, They ask the world experts, mainly US. Such depth to their views. They prolly though out ones that didn’t match their thinking. LOL
Is this the Infamous Bloody Brit who sank a Thousand Shits - and
Toppled the Topless Towers of Illegitimate Justices?
IT IS! IT IS! WELCOME BACK, BUNKY!
GOT a million questions ... write me direct via email ... Tom.
You forgot to inform us how many atoms is needed to make a fart!
Edvard, yer Cuz
DEAR Edvard, Ole Cuz-Fart ...
Just look directly into a Mirror - and - start COUNTING! TK.
P.S. the number of atoms is directly proportional to the age of the FART !
The inverse is also true - younger people like ME, have less Mass,
ERGO less atoms ...
Karla Dorman, The StormSpinner
We’ll never measure up to God’s perfection. We were created in His image, and then we decided we didn’t need Him anymore, so we made us ... Him. Little gods, in charge of our own destinies (and failures). JMO is all ... thought provoking excellence, though, Tom, well done.
(((HUGS))) and love, Karla.
DEAR STORM-SPINNING, TEXAS-TORNADO HALF-TWIN ...
YEW GOT IT DARLIN’ ... little gods ... not unlike lil squeaky FARTS!
SILENT - BUT DEADLY! Man, and it’s reverse Nam - both ugly failures!
“Perchance to Dream?” Pax Tecum! TomKat.
RE: J’nia Fowler’s - Been Duped Lately? -
on a slightly different note - about being ‘duped’ -
I am so distraught by all of the DISCLAIMERS about medicines -
what FOOLS would take any of them?
I’d rather keep my malady, than risk the side effects - like -
your LEGS may fall off, or go BLIND - or you might just DIE!
Peace - Tom.
RE: Mr. Ed’s - When All Is Gone -
ED - thank you for sharing this sad tale!
Out of all the creatures that walk this earth, ultimately -
Man is the most Feral!
The wolves, the lions, the hawks - all the ‘predators’ combined - do so, naturally. It is their survival skills, to hunt in order to eat, in order to continue living. Not so with Man!
In Army Basic Training, we were taught - “The Spirit of the Bayonet” -
TO KILL! TO KILL! TO KILL!
It almost makes one wish that Gunpowder and Knives had never been invented!
When will Man ever realize that he cannot harness Nature, nor ever defeat it?
Perhaps a new Bumper Sticker is needed? NURTURE NATURE!
Peace - Tom.
