Out Of My Mind

There is a theory claiming a parallel universe exists, also known as an alternate universe or alternate reality. It is a hypothetical self-contained plane of existence, co-existing with one’s own. Yes there could be another planet Earth out there and you and I are on that Earth II too. Now according to this concept on planet dos you would be doing something entirely different. Here I’m a talk show host but there I could be a brain surgeon. The only reason I’m pointing this out is I think we actually are now living in a parallel country. The USA is now a country of people on 2 opposite orbits and while this idea has been floating out there for years this past election pretty much confirms it and I don’t think it’s ever going back to a mostly unified United States. A lot of people thought the 2016 election was a one off and a portion of the population wanted to throw some dice in a different direction, an experiment if you will. Well it’s time to admit that this is no experiment. Chances of seeing the country thinking mostly in one direction is over. It is now 2 very different ways of thinking, common ground is toast. And there are many more media platforms coming in addition to the ones already here that will continue to give oxygen to whatever side you’re on. An alternate universe is fantasy right now, a parallel USA is fact. It’s time to address the 800 pound elephant and donkey in the room. Ok, don’t believe me? If you are having friends and or family over for Thanksgiving dinner with red state/blue state representation go ahead and bring up the election results and see what happens but you might want to start the conversation before any booze is served and with the turkey carving knife safely put away. Hey wanna have some real fun during dinner? Throw out some white meat/dark meat jokes. Bon Appetit!

Gunga, galunga,

I guess we now live in an a la carte society. For example, I was at the grocery store recently and the guy in front of me at the cashier was not wearing a mask and he appeared to be the only one in the entire store not wearing one. When he left I made […]

There has been a gap between blog postings this time around because over the past weeks all the topics that I initially was going to write about would’ve just added to the overall misery that has enveloped us over the past 7 months, and then I stumbled on an article in the New York Times […]
