When I started this blog oh so many years ago, the purpose was merely to share with the world what I had done the day before. My Key West life. As time progressed, I found I enjoyed pontificating. So I added some political/social commentary.
Understand, some days I do nothing. If so, there is nothing to report the next day. No one can go full blast every day.
Yesterday was a slow one for me. Hard working. However not in the bars and grills of Key West.
I started the day with an early morning walk at Home Depot. I continue to be a good boy. Walking and watching my food.
Returning home, I began fine tuning last night’s podcast. My blog talk radio show. Tuesday Talk with Key West Lou.
I found I had accumulated too much data. Too many topics. A busy week world wide. Needed to cut back the volume, organize the progression, and fine tune the show.
Took longer than normal. A lot more. Maybe I was slow.
As reflected, a busy week. Much happened. Most of which was worthy of discussion. Only so much can be fit in a half hour show however.
One of the items I did comment upon involved Venezuela. I have been following, writing, and talking about Venezuela since the country ran out of toilet paper four years ago. They are still experiencing a toilet paper shortage.
A food shortage as well. Worse in its impact than the toilet paper shortage.
There is no food available for purchase. Assuming there was money to pay for the food.
The farmers stopped growing long ago since it cost more to raise the crops than they could get selling them. Store shelves are empty. Few working. Electricity scarce. Most businesses permitted to operate only one day a week because of the power scarcity.
It has come down to the following. Families are killing and eating their pets. Dogs and cats. Others are abandoning their pets along highways because they cannot afford to feed them. Hunters are going out and shooting the abandoned pets. Then returning home and using them for food.
There is another world out there. One not involving immigrants, ISIS, Trump or Clinton.
Thank God it is not our world. May it never be.
Trump’s numbers are up this week. Concerns me. I fear he may win. It would be destructive for America.
I feel Trump would drag us into a dark place. One none of us want. His moment in history comparable to Hitler’s in the 1930s.
Wednesday is hump day. For me, it is screw off day. I have nothing to do.
This week’s KONK Life column The New Prostitution hits the stands at 5 this afternoon. Read it. Surprising material..
Enjoy your day!
