Dear Madame Zoltar

Hello, my Wednesday warriors!  How are you?  The weather has been magnificent.  Too bad we can’t “lock on” to one day and repeat it over and over again, weather-wise.  Here and there I’ve spotted commercial signs of Halloween and it’s depressing.  How about we get through this month first?  I dislike the feeling that I’m being pushed along.  Mr. OrbsCorbs told me that a tenant in his apartment building has a full size skeleton hanging from the front door.  That’s just creepy.  Halloween is a month and a half away.  Officially, it’s still summer.  And you know that as soon as Halloween passes, the Christmas stuff will be out.  It’s difficult to stay in the moment when advertisements by the thousands urge you to think (and spend) ahead.

As I predicted, our glorious and mighty Green Bay Packers made cubs of the Chicago Bears last Sunday. This Sunday, September 20, they beat the Seattle Seahawks in a night game at home starting at 7:30 PM.  Injured or not, Green Bay is a force to be reckoned with. Onward, Christian soldiers!

Amongst the many issues of the day, one sticks out: the police shootings and shot.  Most of the nation seems to be in an uproar about this, one side or the other.  We can’t have our police shooting at everything that moves, but we must have our police shooting when called for.  Although I distinctly denounce the assassination of police officers, I think more needs to be done to improve community policing. Everyone needs to holster his/her gun and take a step back.  We already fought a Civil War.  I don’t want to see another one.

I also wonder about the militarization of the police.  More and more, the police look like an occupying army.  Less and less do the citizens trust them.

When I wonder about such things, I also think of the bid and vote rigging in City Hall.  Although lawsuit after lawsuit has been filed against the city, the corruption keeps eating away at the heart of the city.

Our country needs some serious healing.  Serious.  We have to cut out the cancer of corruption wherever we find it.  When dealing with a dummy, don’t miss the opportunity to teach him/her some new things.  It will take the best of us in the country to bow down and give aid to our brothers and sisters.  We must stress the civility and the truths that we share.  No one else is going to bend back 20 years and help walk our neighbors into the 21st Century. 

We need healing and we need time to heal, but the hucksterism has already started for the Presidential Election of 2016.  It will only ramp up more. These are troubled times and I’m not especially fond of living through them.  And the fact is that I don’t believe a word from any of the candidates’ mouths.  We need someone to keep us together rather than driving us apart.  If worse comes to worse, I’ll vote for Mr. OrbsCorbs via his write-in campaign.  He spews foolishness like he is “a member of the absurdist party,” but the fact is that he would do better than 99% of the scoundrels currently running.  He’d actually be concerned about the country and not the big payoffs from special interest groups.

“President OrbsCorbs” has a nice ring to it.  And you, my readers, ring in my heart.  I love visits to my blog.  Thank you for taking the time out of your day to read my blog.  I love you all.

Who’s Mr. OrbsCorbs running mate?  Ask:

Enjoy the weather while we have it, gang.  Kids are back in school, so watch out for school buses and little legs.  Remember to give thanks for what blessings you have.

Orbs and Mme Z are the perfect pairing. If a country messes with the prez, the VP can just zap them away, win win!
