About Me

I'm in my 50's. I served 6 years in the Air Force. I've worked in the following fields: Military; Civilian Meteorologist; Dial-Up Internet Service Provider; Equipment Rental; Information Services; Currently working as an electrician. Married for just over 30 years. Was a registered Republican for the first election I was involved in and voted for Reagan. I changed my affiliation afterward and have voted Democrat ever since. I am a Bernie Sanders supporter. Any person that promotes a platform that supports the greatest portion of the American people is a person that I can support. Why would anyone have a problem with that?

Netflix - Gentefied

I've been laid up sick since Saturday morning and binge watched a few shows, including Gentefied. I'm very impressed with it. In Pensacola, FL, the city is going through the same thing. The low end neighborhoods are all being purchased, renovated (or destroyed and re-built), and sold or rented driving the cost of real estate up and up. It's something that really needs to be discussed. Have we finally found a way to help the poor find their way onto the streets to live in boxes? We, being a collective we, not me and hopefully not anyone reading this post.

A very poignant statement about America.

It was made in 2019, but it is so obviously true.

"...Most Americans have become accustomed to the countryís decaying infrastructure, the endemic crisis of drug addiction, and the structural racism of the society. If you donít fix the cracked window in your house right away, you can begin to get used to it. And then another window cracks, and then the back door stops working and the roof begins to leak, and you donít realize until itís too late that the house is falling down around you."

Netflix: Cobra Kai

I held off watching this series because I knew the acting would be sub-par and the writing would be weak, but I started watching it this weekend.

The writing is weak, the plot(s) are ridiculous most of the time, but there is something about the Karate Kid. I had just finished high school when the first movie came out. I believe I watched it at least 10 times through the years.

I can't say that it's the best thing that I've ever seen, but I can't stop watching it.
