Creating this blog has been on my mind for some time now. My dear friend David Perluck started calling me the Old Deaf Bastard years ago. I called him the Old Fat Bastard. You can read about him on his dedication page. Though I’m not quite deaf I do have a severe hearing impairment but this is not why I started this blog
Those of you who may know me know I am outspoken. Apparently, I’ve upset some people on Facebook with my political posts and opinions. I am NOT a supporter of the current administration and many of my posts will reflect this. I decided to move these comments off Facebook.
Outside of current politics I have strong interests in preservation of our environment. Again recent events by the current administration make this an imperative issue. I consider myself a humanitarian and strongly support this statement:
“Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, the wretched refuse of your teeming shore. Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed to me, I lift my lamp beside the golden door!”
I have had an amazing life. I’ve worked many jobs in many industries. I’ve been poor and I’ve been rich. My experience in life is what has led me to this blog. You may not agree with my opinions but I do welcome the opinions of others. I ask only that you only be respectful in your comments. Personal attacks won’t be tolerated, unless directed at our current government officials. In that case there are no restrictions. Adult language is acceptable as you will see I say fuck a lot.
Hope you enjoy my pondering, thoughts and opinions. I look forward to yours
