AGE IS HISTORY

September 25, 2022

The title says age is history. Well, your history starts the day your born and continues till the day you die. Rather them talk about my own history I’m going to talk about what I have witnessed and experienced. I remember watching what was refereed to as New Reels, back before TV, and seeing the Korean war. That was followed by the Viet Nam war, the first war that was fought on TV. I remember Ted Williams, Jackie Robinson, Willie Mays. The Dodgers In Brooklyn with the Giants. I remember Althea Gibson the first great female and black tennis great. I remember when the Olympics would come around they would talk about Jim Thorpe the Best Athlete to ever live and an American Indian. I remember Roger Maris hitting number 61 and Hank Aaron hitting number 755. I remember them putting a mike on Giants middle line backer Sam Huff and pro football took off on TV I remember Arthur Ashe, Agassi, Connors, Natassi, Jimmy Mac, Billie Jean King and all the rest of the Tennis greats. I Remember the Moon Landing, the Oklahoma city Bombing, Wade vs Roe and the assassination of JFK , the attempt on President Reagan and the Twin Towers coming down. Remembering all these things I can’t help but feel that we haven’t really learned anything. Well that’s it for me this Sunday, still trying to get the internet straight so I can be live on YouTube. In the mean time this is FATS and ANTONIA saying CIAO from Medellin Colombia.

TRUMP IS A DANGEROUS COWARD

September 18, 2022

The title says it all, but people could say the same about me. I live abroad specifically in Medellin Colombia, so people could say I’m hiding from retribution. Well, I’m not hiding I live here so that I could retire without sacrificing my living status. Now then, Trump is again trying to rally his minions or scare the rest of us into leaving us alone and letting him destroy Democracy. He has warned of big problems if he is indicted and as of Jan 6th you can be sure he will safe and sound somewhere while his brain-dead disciples attempt to do his dirty work for him. He will of course after all is said and done deny that he encouraged his minions to violence. In a recent article about an interview with Adam Kinzinger when he told Republicans were afraid to stand up to Trump for fear of being thrown out of their Tribe. The tribe is the Republican party. This sort of reinforces my opinion of people’s political choices when it comes to whether they are Republican or Democrat. When you are born if you make choices based on your heredity and environment, this point has been discussed for years, but I think it’s a combination of both and that you are more likely to go with the family rather than not. What this means is if you grow up in a conservative Republican family you will more than likely choose to vote that way as an adult. The same goes for the Liberal Democrats. Trump uses this threat of tribal expulsion to keep his minions in line. Remember he was once a Democrat. This has been FATS and ANTONIA saying CIAO from Medellin, Colombia. Look for us live on YOUTUBE this week if all goes well.
