NFL training camps began this week so the season can’t be far away. Politicians are trying to control your life simply to see what they can get away with. Mother Nature is saying fuck you a little more lately. China is saying don’t fuck with us old man. Joe Biden is saying what did he say. They’re investigating Trump for criminal charges it won’t happen. Remember OJ? Colombia is about to turn its Government over to a crooked communist ( Ref. Venezuela ). Christians are trying to tell you who to vote for. Hey, what happens if you are a JEW? You know Jesus was a Jew and he never resigned. Well as you can tell I don’t got much this week, so this is FATS and ANTONIA saying CIAO from Medellin, Colombia.

I just read an article on about all these rock stars going out on tour this summer. The article was saying it was the last hurrah for classic rock. Looking at the ages of these people they could be right. The Rolling Stones Jagger and Richards are 78, Bob Dylan is 81, the WHO Daltrey is 78, Townsend is 77, Paul McCartney is 80, Brian Wilson is 80, Clapton is 77 as is Rod Stewart, Elton John is 75 and Roger Waters is 78. the list goes on. There has never been such a collection of again superstars on tour at relatively the same time before. It’s ROCK and ROLL history in the making. The only problem is how much it will cost you. Bruce Springsteen tickets are going at Ticket Master for as much as Four or Five thousand dollars a seat. Now, if you have never seen one of these groups before, you probably think this will be my last chance, so let me tell you a little story if I might. When Frank Sinatra was in New York I think he was in his mid to late 70’. I went to my mom who was a super Sinatra fan. My mom surprised me by saying no she didn’t want to see him when his voice was cracking and he couldn’t do certain songs she wanted to remember him as a young man full of life. I should have listened to her as years later I went to see BB king the great Blues legend who I had never seen before. A friend of mine warned me he was now talking more than singing. He was right, he did 4 of his classics that night and just talked about the old days the rest of the time. The point I’m trying to make is with the price of these tickets today it might be better to get a case of beer but the stereo outside and crank it up with your favorite. You don’t want to see a slighter version of your music God. This has been FATS and ANTONIA saying CIAO from Medellin, Colombia.

The problem we face now is we have politicians that are old or unqualified for the positions they have. Let’s start with the president and the candidates for that office. On one side we have Joe Biden a good man a nice man, but one whose age is beginning to show. He is qualified at this time, but he’s not getting any younger. On the other side, there are two candidates for the job Donald Trump and Governor DeSantis of Florida. I believe that since Trump has already had the job and has proven ( at least to me ) that he is not qualified for the job he shouldn’t get a second chance. He is also over 70 and if you add that into the equation along with his Narcissism you have a recipe for disaster. DeSantis on the other hand appears to take the moral high road but he does so to such a degree that he also is a disaster in the waiting. so. What is it I’m saying? I’m saying that we need to not only listen to young people when it comes to the climate and racism but also to how our country is governed. When Kennedy got elected he did so with young people at his side. When Martin Luther King marched for racial equality he did so with young people at his side. The young people of today are becoming so disenfranchised with politics that it’s going to take a very special person to wake them up and get them fully involved. I don’t see one on the horizon right now but hopefully, they just need a nudge to get involved. I’m FATS and I’m 76 years old which makes me far too old to run for any political office. My mind is sound today but who knows what tomorrow will bring, that’s why I say we need young people, not one like me whose life has run its course and won’t be around to be held responsible for their actions. This is FATS and his best friend ANTONIA saying CIAO from Medellin, Colombia.

There has been a lot of talk about this new golf league from Saudi Arabia. It’s all politics folks the Saudis have an unusual and secretive relationship with the US going way back. You remember me writing about how the only plane in the air after the towers came down on 9/11 was taking members of the Saudi royal family home. This deal goes back to the original formation of Aramco oil company (Shell, Exon, Mobile, and others along with Saudi Arabia). I know a little about the company because of my uncles. One worked for Shell the other Mobile. The one that worked for Shell spent about a year in Saudi Arabia as the controller for the company. I have read articles on Google about how the company started and our relationship with the country but I don’t think they tell the whole story. I believe the Republican party and some of its members such as the Bush’s are invested in the company and the country. We have armed and trained them to be the best fighting force in the area. So yes we’re invested the question remains why we’re still friends after 9/11. What’s so important, that we would let a country hide Ben Ladin ( who is related to the royal family) for 10 years and also is a sponsor of State-supported assassinations. I don’t think I’ll live long enough to get an answer so it’s up to you guys to find out. This is FATS and ANTONIA saying CIAO from Medellin, Colombia

When I say new blood I’m talking about the Democratic party. I recently heard rumors that there might be a push for Hillary to run again, please no. I think it’s time for a young President and young senators and congresspeople. I don’t mean wack jobs like a lot of the younger Republicans but there has to be someone out there that can galvanize the public like Trump but for the betterment of everyone not just themselves. I don’t mean people like Clinton and Kennedy that couldn’t keep it in their pants. I mean someone who can bring both parties back to the real world and start trying to save us rather than enslave us. I want change and have for a while now but all I’ve seen is the same old shit and even worse than before. I’m not a Politician and obviously not a diplomat. I’m just an old guy that wants this country and democracy to survive and prevent ego maniacs like DeSantis and Trump from turning this country into something out of a novel. I wish I was smart enough to write here the solution to this but, I’m not and at my age, I don’t think I’m going to have any kind of epiphany and solve the problem. This has been FATS and ANTONIA ( I‘ve received a little grief about using the ancient one) saying CIAO from Medellin, Colombia.
