The Ocean Calls My Name

Sail On Sailor

                        LP: "Holland" 1973                        

Having spent at least half of my life on or near the ocean, it would be fair to say that this song is right up the on my all time favorites list! Maybe it's on your list too. You know everyone loves a great song especially when it connects you  to something important in your life!  This is one of those song for me. Hope you enjoy it!  Happy Thursday!!!

Fed Up!

I haven't been doing much ranting lately and that has caused a couple of occasional followers of the SandBox to ask why?  Quite frankly, I don't have much of an answer other than to say I am just fed up with the whole political situation right now.  Fed up of listening to him bitch about Hillary and her bitch about Trump and vice-versa.  Fed up with all of it! Seriously though......we are into the 21st century. We put a man on the moon. We've cured many horrible diseases, are on the verge of curing others, our tech advancements are rivaled by few, and we're one of the most well educated countries on the planet. But you're gonna sit there and tell me that Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump are the best that we, as a nation, can come up with?  I'm calling bullshit on all the Clinton and Trump "homers!"

One is a lying, untrustworthy, manipulative, over bearing, and an over emotional hot mess whose actual physical health is now being called into question and the other is an ego maniac who is a smart man, but thinks the entire planet revolves around him and has no clue how the "real world" works outside of his little sphere of influence. And let's not forget the socialistic babblings of Bernie Sanders. Really people??? This is the best we can do???

Everyone wants to point fingers and blame the other side or political party or political ideology. We'll guess what..........WE ARE ALL RESPONSIBLE FOR THIS MESS. We created these monsters by voting for the same kind of politicians from both parties at every level of government for the last 50 years. The way this country was headed, this was bound to happen sooner or later.  It looks like "sooner" has won that battle. So what do we do now?   Choose the lesser of two evils? (AND YES BOTH MAJOR PARTY CANDIDATES ARE EXTREMELY TOXIC AND ARE OF VARYING DEGREES OF EVIL IN MY OPINION), totally sit out November 2016, or maybe for once take an actual serious look at 3rd and 4th party candidates that most people wrote off a long time ago?

I quite frankly don't know.......and neither, it seems, do some of the smartest people in America. As for me, I think I'll just turn the volume down on all the social media bitchers, whiners, and complainers for a bit, put on my Archie Bunker for Prez t-shirt and give some more thought to this political quandary that has no right answer.......just a lot of bad choices!  I would suggest that before election day sneaks up on us,  you take Archie's advice. "Stifle Yourself" and do the same!
