OK. Most everything that I write on this silly blog is stuff that jumps into my vacuous head at random moments. I am a nice guy, but not necessarily a smart one. Shit&stuff, I could not even come up with a name for this blog and had to fall back on one that Randal coined for me. (by the way, buddy, did I ever say thanks?)
So here's the deal..... I opened a post this morning and there was a comment from the esteemed consort of DCUP, Mathman. It seems that he had a relative who resided in Oshkosh. Now I did not grow up here, my parents did, but I have lived here now for over thirty years and from the general area that he described, his Aunt lived about three-four blocks from where my Uncle and Aunt lived. In and of itself, no big deal. But it brought to my empty head that there is one thing Americans do that I really love. We seek connectivity with each other. I believe that.
Spartacus made mention of a somewhat similar situation on his blog.... of someone who may be of a mutual acquaintance to both of us.
So I am sucking coffee this morning and trying to think of something witty to write about the promise I made to have a Jood For Prezidint rally and provide free cheese and beer. Get out the vote etc. and I realized that the whole deal with Jood and Nunly and the campaign on the blogs is about connectivity. That we are Americans who are sick and tired of being splintered, fractured and torn apart. It has gotten so bad, our asundered society, that even those who try to aspire to unity are ridiculed. Some are trying to put it back together. The blog thingee is just how some are trying to do it.
I really do think America is a great place. Every race, heritage, religion, hair color, bra size, philosophy, recipe, underwear type, yadda&stuff is represented here. It is not a perfect society...never will be... but Americans do fix things when they are broken. And like my father used to tell me, "kid, you broke it, you fix it!" OK. America needs some fixing. America needs to connect with itself again.
To further those goals I am offering
