You know I do a thing called Three For Free on YouTube everyday. The last week I did obscure Blues artists. Today, however I did George Harrison and that got me thinking, what would George and John think about the world now. I would like to think that if they had stayed around a little longer maybe this place wouldn’t be so fucked up now. Having Martin along wouldn’t hurt either. These people were truly caring people that , although they cold be classified as old Hippies, had some really good ideas. They spread their message all over the world and young and old listened. There aren’t a lot of people out there today that can say that. There messages were all of peace and love not violence. I remember when they shot John, it seemed as if the world stood still and cried, I know I did. What has happened to us, that has made us lose hope and direction. Where did all this hate come from. How did we pick leaders that had no idea how to lead. I don’t have any answers to these questions. I, like you can only sit and watch and wonder will we survive. I think we had a great chance back in the day and we blew it. I got nothing else today. Be sure to catch me live on YouTube live tomorrow night at 8pm daylight savings time or 7pm standard. You can also check out my three for free everyday as well as posted videos on YouTube. This has been FATS and Antonia saying CIAO from Medellin, Colombia.

WHY DO THEY DO THAT?

November 27, 2022

The title says why do they do that? I came up with that question while Antonia and I were out walking Friday night and a very attractive young girl walked by all made up with a good looking outfit and then on her feet she had platform combat boots. Now I know I’m out of touch with today’s fashion trends but I just think it made her look weird. I knew this girl she’s a very good looking nice figure and good legs so I asked myself why she would wear something that took away from her natural good looks. I guess it is the influence of the influencer’s generation. You know those young people on the Net that set trends that aren’t really complimentary but make them feel important till someone else comes along. When I was in high school and my parents let me dress myself I was never a trend follower. I wore what I wanted to not what the rest of the world said I had to. I liked loafers and shoes that were tied. Now I’m not saying I didn’t like things like Bell bottoms. I loved the Hippy generation. It just seemed that once everybody was wearing something the price would go up. Look at the trend of ripped or holes in jeans. People are baying hundreds of dollars for jeans that you can just give to kids and they rip them up for free. What’s the purpose of wearing high-top sneakers with untied laces just because some gangster does. I understand that if you are young then it makes you feel cool. Back in the day of the hippy once something came into the mainstream the kids didn’t want it anymore now it seems they want everything no matter how unconformable it makes them and they have to have the expensive version. Go into a poor neighborhood and you’ll see two things right away. Two hundred fifty dollar sneakers and Apple cell phones on kids that can’t afford to take the bus to school. I know young parents that go out to work two jobs just so their kids can have what they want. I never wanted for anything growing up but I didn’t want the newest trendy thing out there. Well, I guess by today’s standards I’m either uncool or just out of touch. This is FATS and my very stylish friend ANTONIA saying CIAO from Medellin, Colombia.

HE’S BACK

November 20, 2022

Well, fat boy went and did it. He’s running for president again and not only that Elon Musk is so desperate to keep Twitter alive that he gave Trump back his account. Well, people, I follow like George Takei has moved to Mastodon where I am as well. You just have to go to @bruffjeffrey mastodon to find me. While I don’t think he can get elected again I realize that there are millions of bigots and racists as well as dumb people out there who worship the ground he slithers on. If he had not lost the last election, you’d think there would be at least one little piece of proof out there and there is none. So the real question arises are there enough anti-democracy morons out there to make his run viable. While I hate Trump I don’t think Joe Biden should run again. I’m going to be 77 next month and I recognize the fact that I’m just not as quick mentally as I was a year ago to forget the Physical problems that come with old age. That is what really scares me about Trump as he already seems to be somewhat mentally impaired. I was glad to see that the Republicans didn’t get all they wished for in the midterms but they got enough to make sure Congress doesn’t get anything accomplished this time around. Time to get ready for Sunday football so ANTONIA and FATS will say CIAO until next time from Medellin, Colombia.

Well we had our midterm and there are still a couple of races up for grabs but basically, we’re still a Democracy. Trump didn’t do well, and there’s talk now that old Ron will run against him in the Republican primary. That could become the first X-rated campaign, which will make for great fun. These two idiots have nothing nice to say to each other and it will be fun to see what happens when one wins and the other loses. Will the loser kiss and make up with the other guy or go home and lock themselves in the closet and scream. If they choose to debate the networks will have to have censors on the stage and referees from professional boxing to keep things in check. These two people are the nastiest of the nastiest. They are both arrogant and narcissus so I don’t think I‘d want to be a moderator. It could be great fun to watch. The Democrats on the other hand should really look for somebody other than Biden to run. I mean he’s a nice guy but I think they would be better served by somebody younger with a very thick skin. The Republicans will be throwing every age-related insult they can find at him. Well, at least we can relax for a couple of days before the bullshit starts all over again. This is FATS and his Girl Friday ANTONIA saying CIAO from Medellin, Colombia.

TOMORROWS ELECTION DAY

November 7, 2022

If you enjoy the benefits of living in a free Democratic country I strongly suggest you get off your collective asses and vote on Tuesday or sit home do nothing and kiss it all goodbye.

Hi guys, when I say there really isn’t a choice anymore you know of course I mean in politics. Look what’s going on, if Biden and Trump end up going for round two your so-called choice is between a friendly old guy who is starting to lose touch and a man who is mentally ill. Old Ron is not much better. There are people in both parties who would make a much better President but for whatever reason, they choose not to run. Sounds like a lot of us doesn’t it. You know the ones that say I don’t want to get involved. We have a minimum age in order to run for president I think besides term limits we should consider a maxim age so they don’t get out of touch with the people. I know the first might happen I don’t think the second has a choice. So, we should have them take a psychological exam to prove their competence to be President. If I could pick someone to run for President right now I would lean toward Michelle Obama. She’s a constitutional lawyer young quick on her feet mentally I think she would be great. But, in this atmosphere she has two strikes against her 1, she’s a woman, and 2, she’s a black woman. Trump would absolutely lose what’s left of his mind if he lost to her. I am old and don’t have a lot of years left but I do fear for my family when all this is done. This has been FATS and ANTONIA saying CIAO from Medellin, Colombia.

May be an image of 1 person and text that says '"Our vote this year is about whether we ever get to vote again. This is not the year to sit out." -RACHEL MADDOW OCCUPY DEMOCRATS'

Once again I missed a post last week, this time for severe illness. As you all know my assistant is Antonia and she needed flea ointment applied last Saturday. I did as your supposed to and washed my hands really well, but I guess Antonia rubbed up under my armpit, and well the result later that day was not pleasant. First I vomited everything I had in my system then I couldn’t move my legs and my Kidneys started shutting down. I drank liters of water and by Monday morning I was on m way back it took until Thursday for me to become somewhat normal. Why didn’t I call for an ambulance and go to the hospital? Well, down here by the time they get to you and then get you to the hospital you’re either better or dead. Well, now let’s move on. The election is coming and it’s different this time your right to vote and live in a free and democratic society is on the line. Never have I seen so many unqualified people with radical views running for office. I mean have you ever listened to Herschel Walker a cockroach has a higher IQ. I blame the people and Trump for this. The people because they’re dumb enough to believe Trump and his ego is so strong he believes the lies he tells and not only that he believes he’s above the law. Now, there’s a whole party full of idiots out there that think that change will make America Great Again. What made us great was the ability for us to help and respect others now we have Candidates that think dictators are cool and we can play nice with them and they won’t bother us. There was a lot of that kind of sentiment right before Pearl Harbor. I’m glad I don’t have kids because the future now is grim. This is FATS and ANTONIA saying CIAO from Medellin, Colombia.

I read an article this morning in which Trump’s former attorney Michael Cohen said Donald Trump doesn’t want to be President he wants to be a Dictator. Well, that doesn’t surprise me and Republicans might support him in his quest. Now, you say what. Well, some Republicans put forth the idea that Ronald Reagan should be King. The fact that Trump thinks this way shouldn’t surprise anyone just look at how he idolizes Putin and little Kim. He loves the way people respond to them saying look how they respect him. Well, we all know what happens to them if they don’t show absolute loyalty and respect. They simply disappear. Trump has always felt( just like Nixon ) that he doesn’t get the respect he deserves. I for one feel he gets more than he deserves, he doesn’t understand respect isn’t something you are entitled to, it’s something you earn through your actions. He feels he is the most intelligent man around, yet he makes comments that make a lot of us cringe and doubt his state of mind. I personally believe that he is somewhat mentally unbalanced and that he has told so many lies over and over again that he believes them to be the fact no matter how much proof he is shown that he is wrong. I don’t see many really smart people supporting him unless you count the racists and crazes that run around kissing his ass. I don’t blame them it is intoxicating to find a man in power that supports their craziness. They react to him like a third grader does when his teacher gives them a gold star. Well, I going to stop now and go watch some football. Those of you looking for my live broadcast on YouTube will have to wait a little longer as there is still a problem in the meantime this is FATS and ANTONIA saying CIAO from Medellin, Colombia.

KARMA, IT CAN BE A BITCH

October 9, 2022

Well we have all heard of Karma, or What Goes Around Comes Around or, Yin and yang, or even Physics For every action there is a similar or opposite reaction. We have all had it happen to us or seen it happen to others. I look at OJ and everybody says he got away with murder. His life pretty much went to shit after the trial. No one is paying to play golf with him no one wants to hear what he thinks anymore. So when is it going to hit Trump? I don’t know, but I wouldn’t be standing too close to him because he’s built up a hell of a lot of bad Karma. His greed alone should guarantee a seat in Hell. There has never been a greedy, self-serving politician just plain nasty as Trump. I mean not even Nixon and he was pretty bad. Trump feels that because he was President and was on TV, he is beyond this and Karma is afraid of him. Well, he should ask Attila, Caesar, Hitler and the rest they all thought that Karma wouldn’t get them. Well it is football Sunday and I’ve been up since &am to watch games in London so now I’m beat we will discuss this more at another time. This is FATS and ANTONIA saying CIAO from Medellin, Colombia.

THE SILENT MAJORITY

October 2, 2022

Good morning and welcome to our blog. The term Silent Majority was made famous by Richard Nixon. He was saying that the anti-war protesters didn’t represent the opinions of the majority of Americans. Well turned out he was wrong. Today the term applies’ s to those who simply do nothing when they see evil at work. They just want to go to work at a paying job come home watch their favorite TV shows go see a concert or sporting event a couple times a year and not be bothered by the news. They don’t want to know anything except the scores of last night’s games. The plight of the people in other places is not something they are going to say or do anything about. One of my friends is like this. I had asked him what he would do if Trump did away with Social Security. He answered he didn’t care and he wasn’t going to worry about that now ( He was only 40 at the time ). he tends to get into relationships with women that will let him stay without doing much. He is just one example and probably not a very good one of people that just don’t think the really bad shit that people talk about is going to happen to them and let me tell you there are millions of people just like him out there. Some don’t want to get involved for fear of what others will think and some have a different fear. I will tell you this if they keep just sitting on the sidelines waiting for it to just go away they will wake up one day and say how did this happen why didn’t someone tell us or do something to stop it. This is where being old is an advantage I won’t be around to see this. This is THE ANCIENT ONE and ANTONIA saying CIAO from Medellin, Colombia.
