Ownership, Surprisingly Not Just For Cars and Other Assorted Sh*t


Words, I suck at them. Sentences can, sometimes, be the windmills I tilt against. Scratching them down on paper, not that anyone does anymore, is as much fun as Polynomial long division. The one thing that I have always maintained is that, spoken or written, is that they have power.

Since the beginning of this blog ( I’m sure some grammar Nazi is cringing at the structure of the preceding sentence –believe me it was my pleasure ) I’ve maintained that we should own our words, it’s not easy sometimes we fall in love with what we write, other times we can’t wait to get away from them but we should own them because in that simple act we grow.

I was reading Nicholas Kristof’s, Jimmy Carter, His Legacy and a Rabbit   http://www.nytimes.com/2015/07/09/opinion/nicholas-kristof-jimmy-carter-his-legacy-and-a-rabbit.html?_r=1  and something resonated with a conversation I was having a few days back. Let me  give you a brief look at the Carter KILLER SWAMP RABBIT story.

Evidently while on a fishing outing, President Carter casually had to paddle away a wild rabbit that was trying to jump on his boat. The story got out and was sensationalized a few times over. The result of Carter’s Killer  rabbit was that he was painted in the media as ineffective and weak. That blatant misrepresentation coupled with the lengthy hostage situation ( he opted for sanctions and diplomacy with a rescue attempt as a last resort, something that many have since agreed was the only way to resolve it ) led to his defeat in the elections by Ronald Reagan—We The People then had to endure decades of  Reagan’s conservative philosophy that has degraded the country. All of this in part thanks to yellow journalism–today we call it Fox news.

That was not the only time a politician has been derailed by a cruel media— can you say YEAAAAH?!

Well Howard Dean’s impassioned gaffe caused him the Democrat nomination, in great part because the internet went wild with memes. He, a successful and respected politician, was portrayed as some yokel lunatic, the result you ask? Yep, we got  W Bush  *and you know how fantastic that was. *Italics denote sarcasm.

Now the media is at it again and their new bowling pin is Bernie Sanders. A couple of rabid radicalized BLM frauds recently hijacked a public speech that had drawn a huge crowd, funny the media still overlooks Bernie in favor of Republican clowns, to push their own agenda–so who does the critics focus on? Sanders–they use the same reprehensible language they used on Jimmy Carter, the same argument, that he is weak. I think the RESPONSIBILITY now lies within us, to challenge the deception, we should not allow peddlers of discord to bring the downfall a good man.

The media needs to own responsibility for their words, they need to stop being harebrained because their words have impact that when done irresponsibly hurt not only individuals but the nation.

It should come as no surprise that I’m no BIG fan of President Obama, my views have evolved not because of the right-wing media assault on the man but on my own based observations. I often  will lampoon him, as I  do any other politician, and will have a critical tone but I always keep it centered around policy not on a personal level, I give him credit when credit is due, relax Obamabots he doesn’t deserve it as much as you think he does—yes I’m grinning, and know if I tally his record he has done a lot considering the historically belligerent congress he had to deal with.

Having said all that I present my next topic, “Pictures are worth a  thousand words.”   What did you forget who I am? 😀

My thoughts are with President Carter and his family and to kudos  to

        You also need to be well versed on the talking heads and the Gilmore girls.

        • misterx27 says:

          What is a “Gilmore Girl”?

          • waverly says:

            From wiki –
            Gilmore Girls is an American comedy-drama series created by Amy Sherman-Palladino, starring Lauren Graham and Alexis Bledel. On October 5, 2000, the series debuted on the WB to widespread critical acclaim [1] and remained a tent-pole to the WB until it was canceled in its seventh season, ending on May 15, 2007 on the CW.[2]

            The show follows single mother Lorelai Gilmore (Graham) and her daughter, also named Lorelai but who prefers to be called Rory (Bledel), living in the fictional town of Stars Hollow, Connecticut. The town is filled with colorful characters and is located approximately 30 minutes from Hartford, Connecticut.

            Gilmore Girls is known for its fast-paced dialogue filled with pop-culture references. The show earned several award nominations, winning one Emmy Award. It was also critically acclaimed placing No. 32 on Entertainment Weekly‍‍ ’​‍s “New TV Classics” list,[3] and was listed as one of Time magazine’s “All-TIME 100 TV Shows” in 2007.[2]

              • waverly says:

                Oh I NEVER watched Gilmore Girls when it was on television. I binge watched the entire seven seasons when it became available on Netflix last fall.

                I have completely “cut the cord” and watch NO television anymore at all, period.

                • misterx27 says:

                  LOL! really! I still watch,but I keep it to the things interesting.And local news,national news.I must admit, I watch way to much American politics.It is like a train wreck,I can’t avert my gaze

          • waverly says:

            Gilmore Girls has been for me a long time, goto, drug of choice. especially when looking to escape to the land of the veggie comatose.

    Looks like “The Guardian” had it going on today in the way of “thought provoking” articles.

    Note – I refuse to read one more thing about that hideous, self-promoting, comb-over, douche-bag.

  14. waverly says:

    Ok – it’s movie trivia time.

    What Frankie Valli song was prominently featured in a classic 1978 film? And featured again almost 20 years later in a vehicle for Mel Gibson / Julia Roberts ?

    I saw the 1978 film when it first came out in the theater and vowed that I would never watch it again. Too violent for my tender 20 something sensibilities.

    • Lizard says:

      I don’t know and googling would be cheating. 🙂

      • waverly says:

        It’s ok Liz. Go ahead and google it. “The Deer Hunter” movie so ruined that song for me. It detracted from it’s intended use in the movie “Conspiracy Theory” 20 years later. Ruined it, just ruined it. Deer Hunter is the only thing that comes to mind whenever I hear that song. Gawd what a sickeningly devastating film. The most haunting of all the Vietnam era films, IMHO.
