LAUGH LAB: Congress…The Real Academy Awards

AND the winner is???  ‘Disneyland on the Potomic Puppets’  with their $5000. suits, face lifts, bouffant hairdos and motor mouths.

The stage is set, lights…action…camera and undying intellectual dialog.  The look good, sound good, soap opera drama is so captivating, so entertaining that millions of Americans are hooked again.

The game plays out salaries $182,000.+, benefits, pensions, superior health care while ‘We The People’  pay the bill.  Public servants you say?  Open door policy?  Transparency?  None exists and  STRIKE 3  YOUR OUT!  But whose out…WE ARE!  We pay, they lay…down on the job that is.

AND the answer is…all public servants hereby undergo the MMPI Psychological Test.  Shorten careers to ONE term.  Slash salaries to the minimum wage.  Reward efforts by points for perks.  Swear in to unselfishly serve the people, swear out what could and couldn’t be done.

In other words folks, we gotta  STOP their psychosis…START new neurosis… GO motionosis.

HAPPINESS…Is To Contemplate

No matter whether you are youth or elder,  reflect back on each day and remember. Like an architect we  move moments in a mixture of low points and highlights that take shape in what matters in our journey through time.

We discover in bits and pieces the hardship and kinship which make up the building blocks of a life in the process of living.

Like jugglers we toss tangibles and intangibles into a universe that pitches the known and the unknown, challenging our person to meet the task of the century.

We may think that negative equals  ‘Hell’  before we master that conflict or incomplete thing. We learn that positive equals  ‘Heaven’  after we have resolved that conflict or completed that something.

Because solving & resolving problems takes long periods of time;  where the few moments of resolution last so briefly;  makes us feel we’re living in  ‘Hell’  longer than  ‘Heaven.’

The reward may come in spurts for coping or accomplishing and the price for learning may be dear……BUT never forget, that the trip may be  ‘Hell’  but the finished product is  HEAVEN!

LAUGH LAB: Calling ‘James Arness’ GUNSMOKE!

Matt Dillon has been ordered by the government to shape up the New West.

Back to the ‘good guys’ all of them armed including ‘pistol packin Mommas’ with the instructions of whenever the ‘bad guys’ are tryin to take you out……you take 10 steps forward or backward……(depending on how good – you are)  pull out your pistol and then FIRE AWAY!!!

All’s fair in love and war.  No more machine guns, automatic rifles or tomahawks allowed.  No more criminals, crazies, nut cakes, basking for life in our comfy prisons, soaking up the good life of  TV, 4 squares  and writing for profit  ‘get rich quick’  books.

Marshall Dillon says  “HOLD IT”  which stops the lobbyists, special interest groups and breaks up the parties battling under republican or democrat.  Next he blasts into law……quote  “Any moronic Washington Senator or Congressman who won’t shut up……has to draw.”

The Wild West of yesteryear comes back to life today in this 21st century.  No more free speech, courts, jury duty or debates on gray areas.  It’s strictly black & white now cause we might have a police state if we DARE to enforce law.

You’re right……the good ole  USA  is NUMBER ONE !!!

Be proud that in the world we’re  #1  in violence, crime, gun ownership with glaring yearly statistics in the U.S. that  8,000  of over 12,000  murders are by guns.  WHOSE NEXT?

Matt Dillon isn’t here but he is remembered as the CLASS ACT of his day and surely would agree with  “SASA” who says “The solution is prevention, not  ‘Who or Why’  but  WHAT & HOW.”

‘California Gold’

If you’re lucky enough to live in the state of California, you struck  ‘gold.’

The hearty hand from a bear hug of a man graciously escorted you from highways to skyways over towns & woods touching the hearts and souls of its people.

Enroute he led with ease and simplicity across  ‘mother earth’ and all her inhabitants. Whether trees, rocks or streams, they joined in the chorus of living things.  Buildings came to life in  tribute to human lives of toil and sacrifice.  People who might never have been known, were seen and heard.

What else could that touch of  ‘gold’  light up but only the  face of an ‘angel’…… our one and only beloved  ‘HUELL HOWSER.’   He gave us beauty, we honor his peace.


FRIENDS and FANTASY Come In The Darndest Pkgs!


I SIT HERE  in the middle of a forest where woods and streams surround me. The overwhelming growth consumes me as my limitations in perceiving things frantically attempt to make an immediate capture.

I begin naming things. That’s a leaf…a branch…a tree…a brook…the sky. Time and again I catch myself, for to look at that same flower without any name, I begin to see miniature worlds of wonder.

Once merely a rock riddled with algae, now becomes a moss covered palace of velvet green splendor. The trees become instruments of a mighty orchestra. The streams and brooks become the voice of a thundering chorus. The sky becomes maestro in shading and lighting.

I STAND  in the middle of civilization with a busy metropolis surrounding me. I find myself thinking…buildings…traffic…people.

When I look again, buildings become variations of fascinating form, traffic becomes a symbol of our threatening yet ever changing norm.

Instead of seeing people, I see individual persons. Masses of gender suddenly appear in likeness of one another yet difference in character. When I look very closely, I see in one single human form all the combinations of these masses in miniature.

Males look like females who look like males and females look like males who look like females.

I see with amazement how this very sight models the schools of fish in the ocean, each looking different yet resembling the other. I can see in birds, plants and animals, themselves as relatives to the ‘whole scheme’ of things.

Everywhere I go I see reflections of myself and others.  I am warmed by the statement  ‘humans are created equal’ yet I am cooled by the devastating ‘hole’ it has left in the WHOLE of humankind. We are created equal ONLY in the way that we are equipped with the same basic tools, we are not equals in the way in which we use them.   Authored By Lane
