Rocket Ships,Tropical Storms and Zombies, Welcome Distractions to the Politics of the Day

Ignore the in-my-face obvious issues and lend all of my attention to unwarranted, groundless non-issues? Not happening!

Tropical Storm Isaias

Tropical Storm Isaias

Back to Planet Earth and Crazy Town

NASA astronauts, Bob and Doug, have triumphantly and safely been returned to earth by the Spacex team.
They landed off the West coast of Florida, near Pensacola, which is the opposite side of the State from where they lifted off some weeks back and would have, under normal conditions, returned to.

But, as we all know, there is nothing normal about what is going on in our Country right now...

I will get back to this!

Plan B was utilized, pulled off without complication, due to Tropical Storm Isaias skirting the east coast of Florida, taking up the landing zone and all the space around for miles.

Isaias has brought some wind and rain to Florida thus far, but other than screw up our weekend plans and force a Plan B for NASA/Spacex, not a lot more than that, at this point!

All of this, has been a nice little diversion - away from crazy town!

  • Wondering, hoping, praying that our favorite astronauts, Bob and Doug, would make it back safely. Applauding, when they safely splashed down. I was near the Cape, when they lifted off for space, so it was nice to be able to applaud once more! So exciting and amazing watching all of this, as it came together and worked out with minimal glitches.
  • Waiting, watching and wondering where Isaias will go? What will ’he’ do? Will he come ashore, here in Florida or will he continue to skirt toward the Outer Banks of North Carolina. Will Isaias strike before then? Only Isaias knows for sure, but we can be assured that it will only be a matter of time before another named storm is in our forecast, it is the season.

While waiting for the big return from space and for what this latest tropical storm is going to do next, stuck at home; I found a movie to watch that I’ve never seen before, ‘World War Z’.

Not sure how I missed this one initially, it was released a few years back and after some sketchy climate change propaganda at the start, I was thinking oh boy, maybe this was why! But, I stuck it out and the Zombie movie managed to capture my attention!

It was entertaining at first, watching the Zombies, all moving together in packs, following the noise, following the leaders of the pack, mindless robots filling the streets, destroying everything in their path, causing harm, in many cases, deadly harm, to all that got in their way...if they weren’t zombie-like, just like them....

Then, there went my attention; the entertainment value diminished and a momentary diversion, away from crazy town, only managed to bring me right back to current events in the United States right now. It was no different than what I can turn on my t.v. and watch 24-7, here of late!

Once that was spoiled, I was able to disengage once more, by turning my attention to Tropical Storm Isaias and to the return of Bob and Doug.



The Return to Planet Earth and Crazy Town

WWZ Zombies

WWZ Zombies

Once Upon a Time

Sports used to take up a big part of my weekends. I’ve been watching sports and participating in sports, for as long as I can remember.

Loving some teams, despising others, caught up in the rivalries, keeping up with stats of my favorite baseball team for a time, once upon a time.
Loving some sports more than others...

It is as if the majority of sports, from the owners to the managers, to the players, to the commentators, have all been Body Snatched, their minds toyed with. Common sense and reason have been sucked right out of their brains and they too are as zombies; following the leader, as they work so hard to destroy their own sphere, their own realm...possibly, permanently!
But, that seems to be of no concern, because they are no longer thinking clearly or objectively. It has become as Academia and Media and Politics....Subjective!
Which seems to be the term of the day; one track minds and now sports doesn’t appear to have anything to do...with sports!

Sad really, but it is just another piece, another part, of the general craziness.

I have heard that a lot of all of this craziness, came out of - was spawned out of...TDS; Trump Derangement Syndrome.

Maybe it really does exist. It has seeped in, much like an IV drip gradually altering judgment or it has hit hard and fast, all at once, like say...a Chineses virus might hit!

Oh yeah, there’s that!

Whatever the case, it is a clear and present danger in the U.S. today, no doubt about it, no longer talking about the virus, but rather TDS.

I am not susceptible to it and have absolutely no plans whatsoever to partake in it. My time will be spent...writing more, reading more, watching movies I’ve missed and until there is a cure for whatever is ailIng sports, I will have no further affiliation and I will steer clear!

I‘ve just received another private message about the latest from the mindless zombies; not only are they destroying everything in their path; they are burning buildings, police cars, the flag of the United States of America and now...they are burning Holy Bibles!

It doesn’t matter whether it was the very first time I heard of this, saw the footage or now, the tenth time receiving it from yet another concerned friend; seeing it, typing this out right now.....sends a cold chill up my spine, every single time!

Come hell or high water...or Zombie apocalypse, I cannot wait to go and stand in what I hope and pray, is the longest line ever, in order to vote. To stand with other like-minded individuals, not afraid to fight for their Country, not swayed by propaganda and threats, which seems to be sucking all of the life out of too many!

I refuse to give in and let the zombies have it!

Any zombie or mind-numb individual, acting crazy, telling me that I must give up on the man (the President) or else and that I must learn to embrace communism...or else...tells me all that I need to know about them and only re-enforces what I already know, about the President!

The media, academia, career politicians...mindless zombies, now, even sports figures, who have all become single-minded, all working toward having us believe that Donald J. Trump isn’t the right person for the job going forward, has only convinced me....how can he not be?

~~~

The storms keep on coming in this crazy year of 2020!

Please Lord keep all those in the paths of these storms safe. Amen.

Thank you Shannon, I appreciate it. Yes, stop back by after a rest. :) I am about to call it a day myself.

Shannon Henry from Texas on August 02, 2020:

Looks like you certainly found something to do to wait out any storm winds that may have wrecked our plans. Glad you're safe from any hurricane, at least for now. They say this is an especially busy year.

I did read what you wrote, but I've had a long week and weekend. Can't seem to collect my thoughts enough to be coherent right now. For anything. I'll try to come back, but I wanted to let you know that I read it.
