Getting Old…Means Not Having to Say You’re Sorry
I’m in a very cantankerous mood lately, due to the fact that soon, I’m having another birthday, and I’m just not aging gracefully. And I WANT to. But, I just can’t damn it. I realize that death is an unknowable equation…and I’m lucky to have lived this long…considering all the close calls I’ve had working at night in downtown St. Louis.
After all, so many people die young. And they didn’t even get to realize how precious life is…that knowledge usually doesn’t come until you realized you don’t have many years left…
For instance…all the babies that die young. Nothing in life is more heartbreaking than losing a child. Whether it’s a baby, or a man who lost his life in war…I can’t imagine the pain of the parents, and they could never put it into words. And here I am..still living.
And so, when I think of these things I get …in a bad mood. An angry mood. And I get even angrier when I think that right after I write this and post it, some NSA computer is going to store it in some little computer chip for…probably some company to send me ads…for all eternity.

Which brings me to the subject tonight of the fight in the news between Alex Jones, and Glenn Beck. Glenn Beck it seems has sucked up to Zuckerface. Ever since Glenn Beck lost his following when he started condemning people for not voting for Ted Cruz, he’s been losing it, and Alex Jones thinks he’s part devil.
It’s been pretty amusing. After all, what do I care? But I do care. Our ‘heroes’ are pretty stupid nowadays. When the biggest ‘hero’ on the block is Mark Zuckerberg, you’ve got a problem.
And here’s one thing nobody talks about. When you get old, and you see young men like Mark Zuckerberg, being so rich and famous, and so full of…shit..it just pisses you off.
I must admit, I’ve gotten my opinion about Zuckerberg from the movie The Social Network. Jesse Eisenberg did an excellent job portraying the boy as a spoil, rich, and insufferable snob.
When he invented “FACEBOOK” it was clear, that he took (stole) an idea, and did everything he could to make it his alone.
Ruthlessness is the name of the game to be a success it seems.
So, why is Facebook so popular? People want to connect..and show the world who they are. It’s a simple concept and trust me, it didn’t take a genius to think of it.
I probably am one of the only people who compares Facebook with any other invention. It’s not that big of a deal….the propaganda about it is.
You don’t have to be on FACEBOOK to live a life. FACEBOOK has not made my life, easier, but is has made the FBI pretty happy.
It’s not like the invention of the automobile or the airplane. It’s just another web invention.
And really…how can a man who is a genius be so STUPID when it comes to everything else?
His politics are “get into bed with every government so your product makes you MORE rich!”
What I’m trying to say is the older I get, the more I see how history is always the same: Some men float to the top of the heap, and more times than not, the man that should rise to the top, NEVER does.
Animals in the wild eat their own…so…does…man.
So, I’m not having a happy time getting old. I keep reading all these snazzy articles in magazines about how it’s all how you look at life that matters.
My doctor says my life is written in my DNA. No use in fighting it. As you can guess, I don’t get along with my doctor very well, but because of Obamacare I’m lucky to even HAVE a doctor, so I’m stuck.
Frankly, I want him to lie. Yes. Lie.
So, I have to celebrate something on my birthday…and I’ve decided the one thing I have to be thankful for, is that Oprah Winfrey has retired too. I don’t have to see her when I’m changing the channels on every talk show. Thank you Oprah, for the wonderful birthday present.
Watch…tomorrow I’ll see her on the Glenn Beck program.
Pass the salt.
