Time For A Break

The older I get, the less tolerance I have for fools and jackasses.

I have had it with the idiots running this great country of ours. What started out as an unparalleled experiment in human freedom 200 some odd years ago is turning into lazy-assed pinata built by pandering thieves who would trade our freedoms for their political security. Our leaders have for the most part abandoned us and pursue economic and social folly. A pox on them!

I get a dose of this everyday at work, from the newspapers and from the web. Everywhere I look I see the results of selfishness, ignorance, stupidity, lack of respect/lack of regard for God and our fellow man.

I can only take so much outrage before I gotta back off.

So I am taking leave for a while until I can regain some semblance of equanimity, some perspective of why God is allowing this to happen. I can't just turn into another perpetually pissed off curmudgeon who contributes nothing but spleen to the conversation.

I know where I will eventually end up. In Psalm 73 where I always find balance.

You've got to take care of yourself. Life is too short to be chronically pissed off. See you later.

Rest, my friend. There's a battle ahead.

I feel the same way. I wasn't the most regular poster to have a blog, but I did try.

Now I just post when something really hits me.

We'll be here when you fell like ranting.

We all need breaks. This inundation by content (Obama administration) is wearing on everyone.

Take it easy and take a rest.

I hear ya, and I feel ya. I have to back away now and again, as well, and for much the same reason. We'll be here when you get back (well, unless I'm in an off again phase, which I doubt, as I've been out sick for a bit).
