Random Thoughts for Memorial Day 2017!


A remarkable hamburger on Memorial Day!

DanO BurgerMemorial Day 2017 happened on a Monday and boy was the weather ever perfect. At the noon hour when many fold were cranking up their grills, the temperature was at 75F under mostly sunny skies and little to no wind! Thing could not have been better, especially considering the rather rocky spring that had seen one too many storms over the past couple of months!

After hail had damaged my AC compressor in March, I filed a claim with my insurance company and got a new unit installed. No sooner was that accomplished and paid for when my stacked washer dryer also decided to give up the ghost. So, wham bam thank you ma’am, I got hit with two major bills that also did a number on my savings. So, that nice gas grill I was going to purchase was, ahem, put on the back burner…

No to be discouraged, I cooked up a great DanO burger on the stove; loaded it up with lettuce and onions, slathered on some ketchup and mustard and have myself a great repast! I then turned on the ‘boob tube’ to try and catch up on the news…

Kim’s hard on for missiles….

My Dong IIKim Jon-un, (or whatever the little fat North Korean’s name is) has been launching ‘test’ missiles with disturbing regularity. Most have been short range SCUD’s, but a couple have also been of the ICBM class and that was disturbing to many. I’m not sure if Kimbo’s head is actually where it should be as he seems to be missing a number of big points. They are; 1) most of the people in his country are in various stages of starvation, 2) China no longer has his back and 3) yet another air craft carrier is steaming in his general direction! None of which bodes well for this midget dictator’s life expectancy.

In my limited opinion, I would say that a war of some magnitude will sweep North Korea sometime before the end of this summer, with the likely outcome being the wholesale slaughter of much of Kim’s regime. An end result that will likely lead to the annexation of the North by the South along with a whole new batch of headaches as that piece of property has nothing to really offer….

Iran and Saudi Arabia get it on…

saudiAs things heat up in the Korean peninsula, I can also see the billions in war related aid that the US is sending to SA being used to bust some heads in Iran. This could likely be the catalyst or spark that will ignite a war in much of the Middle East. A situation where some of the players could start tossing nukes here and there to heighten the horror of was even a bit more! The really interesting events that should transpire will be just who pairs of with who.. I’d also be interested in seeing what the NATO group of 23, who are not paying their fare share, do in the short term. It might be a good idea for them to pay past arrears and get into line pretty quickly….

And, here at home….

pentagon-civil-unrest-678x381Not to be left feeling like we were left out of a world coming apart, there is the real possibility of a Civil War at home! And, unlike the past Civil War where it was basically the North against the South, this one could easily evolve into the two Coasts going toe to toe with the Middle! That would be very interesting to watch as well as see, just how the major news outlets try and spin it to their liking…

No matter what else transpires, the news people should gather record setting viewer numbers as millions of Americans will find it hard not to watch….
