Teh Squeaky Wheel
Coons -- nothing they can’t do.
Happy Tuesday, GN.
Not knowing anything about the Trump dinner fiasco nor anything about Kanye West, I watched the beginning of Tim Pool’s interview with Ye last night and still don’t know anything. Think I’ll leave myself ignorant on this latest crisis.
Happy Tuesday, Gerbil Nation!
Good morning, Sven!
Sven -- it sounds like Trump agreed to meet with Kanye to give him some advice and then Kanye brought along two other people without asking. The Left is trying to make a deal out of the identities of those two others, when Trump never invited them and didn’t know who they were. Meanwhile, Obama is still friends with members of the Weathermen and the Left is perfectly fine with that.
Thanks, Paddy -- it’s almost like there’s a double standard in play. Listening to Kanye, he’s either brilliant in some fashion or mentally unstable. Or a combination of both. Odd man.
Apparently he has bipolar disorder.
The apparent double standard is really surprising.
I wish I had worked to become somebody instead of done nothing and become nobody.
Because then I could have been in a position to make that Tim Pool Kanye show go much better.
I pretty much hate myself right now.
Don’t be silly. Unless you tied Kanye to a chair you wouldn’t have gotten him to stay. And if you did get him to stay, you wouldn’t have gotten any clear answers out of him.
sorry. but no normie could see what I saw or hear what I heard. But that’s not the point.
The point is. I’ve done nothing with God’s gifts, and for that I am so ashamed.
We all have those thoughts, Dv8. At times, they drive us down with regret and remorse, especially as we age. Things that we did that we shouldn’t have; things that we should have done, yet didn’t. I struggle with this daily -- no one here knows about my early life and the sins I committed and how I failed myself and others. I fear that I’m running out of time to correct some of them and curse myself as a coward for not taking action.
It does little good to know that others may be in the same boat. However, today is still today and tomorrow brings another chance to maybe do something right -- to maybe use the gifts given to us even in some small measure.
Sigh. I know you’re right, but…..
I’ve been trying to break myself out of this stasis for over a year now. I’m not ignoring it. I’m facing it, but not making much headway against it.
It’s hard to get out of a deep rut. Change of scenery, perhaps?
What I’ve found that improves my frame of mind is doing any of the tasks that I’m neglecting. I’ve got a board of postit notes on the wall in front of my desk listing things I want to explore, do, or need to get done; some big, some small. Small wins and all that.
I’ve been doing a lot of that lately.
Also lately, I’ve been thinking that if all I can manage to do is go to work, then I should just find a better job. Because at least then, I’d not be scraping by like I am now.
I’ve not had much luck moving forward with that plan either.
I feel especially guilty about that, as there are higher paying jobs literally everywhere, and for some reason not a solitary person wants them.
You have indeed been blessed. Some use such gifts to become rich, or feed their ego by becoming famous and impressing others with their brilliance. Some seek power and control over others, for various unsavory reasons. I see you doing so much to help others. Many more you don’t help are inspired by your actions, accomplishments, and deeds. Ask the Gentle Lady how worthless you are, but don’t be surprised if she wacks you a bit with her bent wand as she lists all the things you do to enrich her life and give her joy. Like the person walking who envies people with cars, until seeing someone without legs, your accomplishments might look better to others who lack your grace and light. I hope you find some peace in your faith and in those close to you in love and friendship.
Gentle Sven, I think I would shoot this in your direction as well. My compliments and respect to you.
ah, mac. you’re the best.
I can’t say I feel any better, but I do appreciate your words. I feel very fortunate that I got to know you all over the years as I did.
I’m glad that I helped Harper manage the site when she had a more active role. She didn’t think she could do it, but I knew she could.
Anything I say can’t but detract from what Sven and Mac have written.
You are all wonderful creations of God and I am blessed to know you all.
Thanks for that, Mac -- it means a lot.
I’m a nobody with 8538 twitter followers. Less than 1500 to go until I get my first Marxist handler.
It won’t be the kind of handler that would ruin my life like Kanye had or Chapelle, or others. But anyone who’s anyone has one, and I identified via experimentation, that, on social media, around 10K is where your first little buddy shows up.
One doesn’t qualify for Ginger or Mary Ann right off the bat, you know.
I’m totally Team Lovey!
Well… time for work soon.
It feels like it’s gonna be a long night, for some reason.
Bah, it will go by fast and you’ll do a good job.
