"Normal" Americans get to celebrate tomorrow by having a feast with their family members. I did recently "make up" with my sociopath mother but along with that comes a resolution to reject not only her but the sociopathic society that comes with her. So the plan is to let her come, eat and then dispense with her as fast as we possibly can. All the while being evasive about projects Exodus and Wolverine.
Yes, it is only another day in the life of a suburban baby boomer "nobody" American prole. It does seem that the angst of caring for elder parents of baby boomers is becoming a rather large issue for dysfunctional families and their members. What struck me hardest was the sudden breakdown of Ma and the realization that it is a hopeless situation. Most places on the net just advocate walking away from a sociopath.
But then I realize our entire society is run by sociopaths. Then what.
And what will dinner conversations consist of.
Hey, Ma, what part of under investigation for elder abuse do you not understand?" Or, OK Dad is of no "use" to you in providing you with entertainment, mental stimulation, dancing and dining out so you plan to wharehouse him in a "care" institution and then place yourself in a elder assisted living community. Well, ya know these things do happen and soliciting seven parasitic lawyers who have zero standing in the practice of elder law kind of leaves the door open for the gold diggers don't it.
There is this growing paradox in this the "land of the "free"" and home of the "brave". It started with 911 and even before that with Charolette Iserbyt.
Former senior policy advisor in the US department of education. As I look back upon several years of internet research, I mean everything from Hopi Indian prophecies to Nostradamus predictions I realize I am not alone and in fact am in the company of great and wonderously famous/infamous names in accordance with my worldview. I am just an American peon engineer so how in God's creation did I ever come to the conclusions I have come to. Jesus H. Christ, I can't listen to or stomach more than 30 seconds of mainstream bullshit assholian American TeeVee without wanting to reach for some Blessed Holy Water or something.
My mother is 80 years old. She, having the benefit of living more of her lifetime not eating processed foods and or living in our modern toxic enviornment has sent me on a paranormal quest for sanity in an insane world for about an entire month now. That is the strength of a more correct lifestyle. What is that Japanese community touting 140 year olds? Nah, that was a link on at least three fried computers ago.
So how did I get to the place I am today.
German expatiot assignment
Late in life business school degree completion. Globalization education don't you know.

The name Lasthorseman used to be sort of a unique thing and when I did a Google search it did in fact return many of the places I used to comment on in political blogs and such. Yes, in the "left" vs "right" scheme of things many of the subjects I brought up where "unconventional". Now though I see that the mighty search engine itself Google, that vast bastion of corporate oneness that is corporate establishment oneness has in fact taken upon itself the responsibility to inject other Lasthorseman links thus cancelling out what used to be mostly blog posts. Yes, this could be just the march of technology but if it is not then I feel honored to be considered a pain in their ass.
Sound sort of like I hate my mother don't it.
No,like the 200 year historical end of an empire I just consider it a sad, very sad loss.
