I want “Elites” running this country. By “Elites”, I mean smart and intelligent, not rich and wealthy. Too many elected officials are charismatic, but lack the scruples to run the country.
Turns-out, Jesus was an introvert, and really hates it that we make a big deal out of his birthday.
Found this NPR article from 3 years ago. A good thought piece, even though we’ll never see it in reality. http:/
8 days into my poison ivy and I believe I have entered the leprosy stage. No pics, I don’t want to put you off your feed.
David Lynch is so cryptic. What does this tweet really mean? On the surface it would seem that Twin Peaks is coming back in 2016, but I am sure it means something else. Like in Eraserhead when the alien crying baby was a metaphor for a human crying baby.
Back from my Minnesota trip. During the Duluth leg, I hiked to the end of Park Point. Poison Ivy loves sandy soil. It also loves to spread its oils on unsuspecting hikers as the walk through. I tried to stay on the trail, but apparently I strayed. I’m back in Anchorage right now with a poison ivy gift from Duluth. Apparently I was walking backwards when it happened. The rash is near my right Achilles tendon.
Poor Adrian Peterson. Not the brightest bulb in the Home Depot lighting department. Definitely needs a life coach to follow him around, to help with personal choices.
I have empathy for him. He was raised by a Dad that regularly beat him growing up. After 7th grade, he received guidance from his father through a prison phone system. His Dad was jailed for trafficking cocaine. Apparently beating your child causes developmental problems. So does absence of a parent. So if Adrian is missing the full spectrum of life skills, we have a leading suspect.
So now that we know that Adrian beat his kid, we, as a society, should step in and teach Adrian the proper techniques of parenting. It may be too late, Adrian may be unteachable in this area. But we have to try. This is what is best for his kids. The best scenario is having Adrian around, and being a good Dad.
So take Adrian out for a few games. During this time off, develop a strategy for rehabilitating Adrian. Once he is allowed again to be around his children, make sure it is a controlled environment. After a passage of time under supervision, if it is determined that the parenting lessons aren’t taking, he should never be allowed to be alone with his kids.
Just my opinion on how things should transpire. Even if the proper parenting skills don’t take hold, and he isn’t allowed to be alone with his kids… it will be good for his kids to have him around, and not in jail.
Beating a 4 year his horrible. We know that because Adrian was that 4 year old 25 years ago.
My knee is sore. Pretty sure it’s because I don’t have enough love and peace in my heart, or some shit.
When I was younger, nostalgia was so much better.
