THERE IS A TIME FOR REFINEMENT. THEN THERES A TIME FOR REVOLUTION.
These pages will be written in a mildly phoneticized version of regular English. The purpose is to loosen up or wear out the Spelling Cop in your head. The reason is because it's my blog and I despise traditional English spelling. Please learn more about this at Nooalf. The Future of Spelling before commenting.
Sunday, August 21, 2011, First entry.
Still bilding the site. Probably be a week or 2 before its on line. I'll keep adding entryz to this page az I feel the need to say something.
Nice day today. Sunny, but cool. Got InnaGoddaDavida playing on Youtube here. Wanted sumthing long az background mood just to not have to keep messing with it. It woud be nice if the 'play all' thing actually workt.
Been watching The Sarah Connor Chronicles on DVD all week. The first seazon had some seriously flawed riting, but overall wuz entertaining. The second seazon iz markedly improved. They rapt it up sort uv abruptly. They were developing sum interesting story that woud hav made for a great 3rd seazon. This and other foolish canselationz makes me wunder wut qualificationz get you hired az a TV executive. An utter lack uv imagination and patience are the most prominent characteristics. Remember Firefly? Or Journeyman?
I have little statuez uv The Dude and Walter on my desk. The set came with hiz rug printed in the packaging and I copied & printed it. Yesterday I found that sumbody haz peed on it! I suppoze Woo coud hav snuk in and dun it, but it wuz probably TROL or JeRE, 2 uv my cats who like to sit there wen I'm in the office. Better print a new wun, otherwize I'll find a puddle on my desk wun morning!
Wuts bugging me theze dayz? The republican prezidential candidates and the newz coverage uv them! I watched the debate on Fox cable and Ron Paul wuz the only guy who had anything serious to say. The really goofy thing iz that Fox, CNN and MSNBC treat him az a joke, yet cover idiots like Rick Perry, Michelle Bachman and even Sarah Palin az if they were actually qualified to be running the country!
I'm seriously considering making another website. The ME TOO! campayn for prezident. Seriously, they keep blabbing about Sarah Palin running for prezident, so why not me? The dummest drug addled zombiez in my least coherent dreamz make more sense than her! It offendz me that theze newz organizationz woud spend a single second reporting on her wen therez a world full uv real newz happening. Wen wuz the last time we heard anything about Haiti? Or... where wuz that next big quake? I forgot alredy kuz it haznt been mentioned in months!
OK, let me simmer down. I'll get started on the prezidential campayn site next week. Not for 2012! If Obama duznt get re-elected...sheesh! The idiots win. I'll run for 2016 az a rite in candidate. I'll call it the NO MONEY campayn.
Sunday, Disembr 2nd, 2012 2nd entry.
Apparently I dont hav much interest in keeping this up. I suppoze the lack uv anything noteworthy with ZOL or my life iz a big part uv that. But I do spend alot uv time commenting in forumz, mostly The Skeptic's Society. Eazy to find if youre interested; I go by my real name.
Horay for Obama! The smart guy winz again! I am officially dropping my bid for 2016 now, since its likely the GoPS will hav figured out that their stupider-than-thou stratejy duznt work by then. But I'll keep the Bum Off The Street campane development materialz on file, just in case.
Sum actual news here now!
A few weeks ago I had a fone meeting with Jim Babinski at Thomson about a ball nut design I'v been working on for a few yirz. I wuz hoping to get a quick 20 to 30 million selling it to them, but it turnz out that its been around for many decadez. Woud hav saved myself a few thouzand owrz uv work if I'd just thought up the fraze 'internal crossover' while Googling and searching the PTO.
Possibly not a total loss, tho. Therez still a humongous manufacturing oportunity if I can get sum investorz interested.

Bad newz for regular bread & butter work. Barco got eaten by a bigger company in the same biz. I've been subsisting on machining work for them since 2005. They made rotary joints and got a regular flow uv orderz for low part count specialz that I could handle with my manual equipment.
Sad to see companyz disappear, especially wen theyv been around so long. Barco began around 1900, got medium, then began to fade in the 80z. It wuz a quiet, plezent bilding in a clean little suburban industrial area wen I found them. My biz card landed on Larry DeLisle'z desk at the rite moment, saving me frum having to move into a van down by the river.
RIP Barco. Good luck to Larry and the gang.

Got hooked on Kick-Ass for sum reazon, so I'v watched the 2 moviez 5 timez each and lissened to the muzik on Youtube a buch uv timez over the last month. I'v seen them several timez befor and didnt go nuts, but now I cant get enuff. THEY NEED TO MAKE MORE! At least make it a proper trilojy.
In Dave Lizewski'z narration at the beginning he wonderz why nobody ever tried to be a super hero befor. Good question! Later at the Atomic Comics Cafe hiz palz Marty and Todd explain that sumwun woud get killed rite away if they tried, wich iz a good explanation for why sensible ordinary people dont do it. But there are alot uv not so sensible andor not so ordinary people out there, so you still haf to wonder why.
Az it turnz out, there realy are peeps out there putting on costumez, prowling around looking for criminalz! So I got the idea that they mite need sum special equipment. Click on the SHS button abuv.
Sunday, Jan 3 2016 5th entry.
Got invited to start a channel on Disqus. Looks like a good format for prezenting and debating social issuez, so I started Shaping The Future. The frst article iz the Gun Incident Tax idea I had several yirz ago. Read it & comment! Hopefully, you can put sum serious thot into it, wichever side youre on, and keep the level uv debate abuv the simple minded NRA sloganz you find on the rite wing propaganda blogz that cater to gun nuts.

HA! The Republican party iz finally getting wut it dezervz! They are reaping wut they sowed. The chickenz are coming home to roost. The monster they created haz turned on them. The corner they painted themselvez into iz... ? Hmm... thats not how that wun goez. Anyway -
They essentially became the Party uv Stoopid in reaction to a truly intellijent Democratic Prezident by opozing absolutely everything Obama wuz for. Obama: "1 + 1 = 2". The GoP: "Its a lie! He'z rong! He iz ruining America with hiz Godless arithmatic!" No matter how obvious or how much we needed sumthing, the assclown GoPs went to war to stop it. Its a credit to Obama'z power & talent that America recovered from the mess Bush made in spite uv their efforts.
Can you blame Donald J. Trump for taking advantaj uv the situation? He saw a distressed property and grabbed it. Thats wut he duz. Usually its real estate, this time it wuz a political party. The party leadership had desided they were going to corral and cultivate the lower left side uv the IQ bell curve, feeding them a stedy diet uv antiObama gruel fortified with anythingdemocratssayizrong and richly flavored with evrythingyouwannahear. Too hell with facts! Lojik be dammed! Obama iz out to destroy America! He iznt really the prezident! Democrats are giving away the country! etc etc etc. Youv herd it all a hundred timez.
This made it too eazy. All Trump had to do wuz sing louder & longer than the rest uv the kwire and the party wuz hiz. He literaly got it for a song. "Obama wuznt born in the United States! Tralala la la!" He kept it going long after the GoP 'leaderz' gave up on the lie. So wen the 2016 campain 'seazon' began, he wuz the only real choise left for the True Believerz.
If he wuz at least uv normal intellijens and coud pretend to hav socially akseptabl mannerz & moralz wile in public, maybe it woudnt be so bad for the GoP. But he iznt and he cant. He iz just a con man with all the unrefined crudity uv a spoiled 10 yir old rich kid left to rot in hiz own stew for another 6 decadez. Giv him credit for being the worldz greatest con man, but conning chumps iz not the only talent needed to run anything bigger than a uzed car lot. He prooved that himself a dozen timez with hiz failed bizness Venturez.
And now its nearly sertain that he will looze the election AND take sum number uv down ticket GoPs with him. He will be the hero uv the Democratic Party if they take the house or senate back.
The rate uv sewage spewing out uv Trump's past and mouth haz been stedily increasing. The GoPs cant run away from him fast or far enuf to avoid getting splattered. Lets hope he can keep it up for another 3 weeks.

Az you no, Trump wun. I wuz flabbergasted, like most peepl who havent been infected with ODS (Obama Deranjment Syndrome). Did you see Chuck Todd on NBC on election nite? Wen Florida wuz going Trump, it looked like he wuz going to poop hiz pants! Even Trump wuz suprized!
Now we no how Romney & frendz felt in 2012.
So far, jujing by hiz many unprezidential actionz and stupid joke cabinet piks, I'd say Trump still duznt expect to reeely be prezident. I'm 50/50 on him being inaugurated. And, even if, he wont last a yir.
To me, the really alarming thing iz that enuf uv the country iz stoopid enuf to elect an outrite con man to the most powerful job on the planet. He may be the worldz greatest con man, but that iz not a qualification for anything beyond running a uzed car lot. I am worried so much about thi= s that I started a Wordpress blog: How Stupid Are We? Hopefully the title will be Googly enuf to get hits. Peeps like their stoopidz! Look at Homer Simpson, Peter Griffin, Stan Smith - proof that idiots are still popular. I plan on posting a new stoopid every week or 2 and responding to every comment.

OK, I'm really doing it. Running for Prez!
More like strolling at this point, nearly 4 yirz befor the next election. If you dont got money, uze time. And I'm betting Trump will not be prez very long, getting booted by the GoPs so they can hav a real conservative. So I will be running agenst Pence az an independent or a quazi-Democrat like Bernie Sanderz. Alot can chanje in 4 yirz. I'm 57 today! The middle uv the beginning uv the old fart faze uv life. Maybe thats part uv why I'm doing this - dementia setting in!

My mom kicked the bucket this morning. She wuz out uv action for a long time, so its not a big shock. Seeing a loved wun hookt up to machinez and bagz uv liquid with little hope uv recovery can make you reconsider the idea that a sudden violent deth iz a bad thing. I never gave up hope that she woud recover well enuff to return home, but I knew it wuznt realistic. The people at the hospital and the nursing home see this all the time and they were saying she could go at any time for months.
Enya -Aniron A little sumthing mom liked.
One of the thingz Jean Mary Gaczol NEVER liked wuz exersize. Just saying the word made her grimase. I warned her for yirz that if she didnt do at least a little she woud turn into a boneless slug like in that Nite Gallery episode, but she stubbornly stuck to her 22 hour per day sleeping schedule. Not even the nagging uv nursez, doctorz, fizikl therapists or priests coud motivate her.
The thing mom really liked to do wuz dream, and you do that while sleeping. So the fact that she wuz doing wut she luvd for most uv the last 18 yirz uv her life haz to be chalked up az a win for her! And how many peeps don't make it to 86? Lots uv us 'healthy living regular exersizerz' are going to do the final chest grab before we get to 70!
Jean Mary Gaczol (nee. Birkinshaw) April 24 1931 to May 4 2017. May she be greeted at Heavenz Gate by her resently deseased cat aNJeLENU ( 1998 to April 13 2017 ) and all her other frendz who hav passed befor.
