A Season of Change

Posted by scorpiomkm on October 11, 2009

The ‘change of season’ is when the earth undergoes a transformation, doesn’t it. Even here in Northern California the air has ‘that feel’ about it ~ that chill. Too, even the trees (save the Evergreens) take on that ‘color change’ from rich green to orange … to eventually losing all its foliage. God, I love it. I do love it so!

Don’t you just ‘feel’ this CHANGE of Season? Notice how your body is undergoing CHANGE; be it to cope now with the cooler temps (blood thickens, the need to pack on more calories) or the lessening of daylight hours (a certain ‘nesting’ attitude takes place, as well a perceived ‘need’  to cuddle more with a Loved One).

We’re in a period of ‘Great NATURAL Change’!

Most of my Life ~ and during all of my so-called Mature Life <g> ~ I’ve always just looked to Nature to reinforce my Belief in a God. In fact, I look mostly to Nature as a Guide to the Principles I live by during most forms of Human Behavior. As an example, I’ve long ago Understood that as a Male I’m a ‘Hunter’ ~ just as the vast majority of the Males in every species. Therefore, I don’t struggle to suppress but UNDERSTAND certain ‘urges’ that arise in me be it for women (sex), status, jobs, games etc. . It’s in my Male DNA!!

Think about it. Why is there so much pedophilia within the Ranks of Priests: Suppression!

Why are so many Kats that pontificate ‘Family Values’ or Homophobic phobias THE biggest freaks and perverts around: Suppression! And it is this denial and feelings of GUILT toward ‘Basic Human Sexuality’ that lies at the core of many of these phobias and psychosis.

Look at nature, where the Females are Basically ‘Nesters’, Birthers and such to Today’s so-called devoted ‘Career Woman’: the Super Woman. Note how the devoted Career Woman is plagued with Fibroid Issues in the womb much more so than her previous generations of Sisters. Or look at the “Devoted to my job” woman who OUTWARDLY appears to be stable, highly successful and happy … while behind closed doors pops a vast amount of pills, hard drugs, alcohol ~  and has the sex life of an out of control mink!

These are NOT Judgments, Folks. Just simple Observations.

See. This is why I often look to Nature for Guidance in MOST activities. Why: because Nature simply mirrors the dictates of God.

Say It Ain’t So, Blue Angels!!

Posted by scorpiomkm on October 10, 2009

Can you Folks recall the numbing feeling you had whenever a Hero or some strongly held Belief you cherished proved to be otherwise? As a ‘for instance’: the day it dawned on you that Santa Clause was REALLY your parents. Or …. the day you realized the ‘Tooth Fairy’ REALLY was ol’ Mom. Or …. the day you first learned and experienced that one of your sweethearts REALLY liked somebody else. Or …. the day it sunk in that the Indians were not always the ‘Bad Guys’.   : )

Soul Stunning epiphany, baby!   : )

And as you get older, these earth shattering realizations don’t stop but just keep on coming as well! Many athletes and celebrity types, say, often have feet of clay, don’t they. Most politicians that we once held in High Esteem eventually prove unworthy of both our Trust & Money. Even our own government proves untrustworthy far too often, and in the end all of these forms of disillusionments (and far more not mentioned) leaves one simply stunned and deeply shaken.

Why do I say all this? Well, because TODAY ‘My Blue Angels’ thoroughly DISAPPOINTED me when they cancelled their Air Show immediately following their half-ass Flyover to open their Show. They just STOPPED Flying, baby!

The frickin’ Blue Angels!!

MY “Blue Angels”!   : )

They said the weather was a factor: but Bullshix!   : )

I damn near got a tan today <g>, there was so much blue sky and sunshine at the beginning of their Show!!

Look. I’m a VERY perceptive Kat. Go back and read my Entry entitled “Flashback” (the second ‘Flashback’ Entry yesterday), whereby in it I commented on how the Blue Angels were what: “out of sync”. How the Blue Angels were not performing up to their Standards.

Didn’t I!!   : )

In fact to be truthful, I had not really planned to attend today’s Fleet Week Air Show because 1) there was a big Ohio State football game on TV that I wanted to see <g>; 2) this being Fleet Week, I really wasn’t in the mood to fight the crowds of tourists, sailor MoMs and Dads ~ and Sweethearts that flock to the ships to see ‘their Loved Ones; and 3) today neither was I really in the mood to wade through the crowds of Hookers that normally accompany naval ships when they pull into port!  : )

But hey! Yesterday the Performance of the “Blue Angels” was so BAD and damn near reckless … that TODAY I just HAD TO take my black ass back over to Fisherman’s Wharf in San Francisco to wipe away that sour taste that still lingered in my mouth, okay.


So there I sat today on the lush grass of Aquatic Park (the Air Show’s Center Point). The air is somewhat chilly (like yesterday), but hell “This is the Blue Angels I’m about to watch!” Yep. Me and about 5,000 of us <g>, all sharing a small plot of grass … most eating some food (I ate fries and prawns <g>) …. most watching kids running wild and/or  dogs licking legs and sniffing your food <g> … as well as getting our jollys watching a small boat turn-over when its drunk passengers decided to all crowd to one side!  : )

Now look here. I’ve been to enough Air Shows to no longer get a thrill whenever little ‘prop planes’ do their little suicidal stunts in the air, okay! I’ve passed that point long ago <g>. And neither do I ‘get off’ in watching other jets do their loops, barrel rolls, high speed passes and vertical climbs either: I’m simply THERE to watch my Beloved “Blue Angels”, okay!

So TODAY for Three full HOURS I sat patiently awaiting MY “Blue Angels” to erase from my memory that horrid Performance I witnessed on Friday. And that was it!

So alas after 3 hours of WAITING … suddenly “Fat Albert” flies overhead. “Fat Albert” is the Blue Angels cargo plane which begins each Performance, and as always the crowd was electrified at seeing “Fat Albert” fly overhead because we all knew ~ and by ‘ALL’  I mean damn near the MILLIONS who had lined the wharf area, parks, rooftops, private yachts and boats ~ we all KNEW that with “Fat Albert” flying overhead, that our “Baby Blues” were soon to follow.

Now here is where that sour taste in my mouth of yesterday, suddenly turns to a shocking revulsion.


The “Blue Angels” glide over a nearby Island on the Bay and make their beautiful ‘peel-off’ whereby the Diamond Formation (jets #1 #2#3#4) peel right in a slow climb, while the two Solo jets (#5 and #6) streak straight toward the crowd. I’m counting, baby: “Jets #1,2,3,4,5,6 are all present and accounted for” because yesterday during their ‘Practice Show’ they mostly flew with only 5 planes! (one Solo Plane rather than the customary two)

So here we go. The ‘Diamond Formation’ makes a Slow Pass in front of us, while shortly thereafter ONLY ONE Solo Plane crosses Center Line and NOT the usual two!

“Oh, Oh ..”   : )

“Hell, not AGAIN! I gave up watching Ohio State!!”   : )

Now I’m getting bad vibes because I notice that a longer than usual time interval passes without spotting either the Diamond Formation (jets #1#2#3#4) or Solo Jets (#5#6). Oh, I forgot to mention that during all this I’m listening to the radio (my little Walkman) because the Blue Angel  ‘Show Narrator’ is telling folks via the radio what the ‘Blue Angels” are doing in the sky during their various maneuvers , okay. So anyway I finally see the “Blue Angels” again, in a tight Diamond Formation, do what seems to me to be performing their “EXIT” routine!


??????????????????????


So as I’m watching this I’m thinking to myself, “Oh, no. Not like yesterday. Not on Fleet Week for cripes sake!”


: )


And to give the “Blue Angels” their due, it wasn’t like yesterday; because shortly as the “Blue Angels” do their EXIT ~ Stage Left manuever <g> ~ the Navy Narrator Announces over the radio:

“The Blue Angels have cancelled their Show due to poor weather.”


???????


That was the Official version, okay. But take it from me ~ Scorpio <g> ~ the kat that fly’s jet #1, the Commanding Officer of the ‘Blue Angels’ … will NOT be back next year, because either he was incompetent or else a member of his Flight Team was so. In either case, this Team of “Blue Angels” were no doubt the WORST Team I had ever seen since following them for going on  damn near 20 YEARS now.

And trust me: it HURTS to have witnessed what I’ve seen these past several days. It truly does.

Today the Fleet sails under the Golden Gate Bridge … as well the airshow featuring my “Blue Angels”.

Yesterday I watch ‘My Blues’ perform their practise show, and I must admit: Yesterday the ‘Blues’ were out of  step, out of sync, flew with one plane OBVIOUSLY having mechanical problems. In short, yesterday the ‘Blue Angels’ flew well below their Standards (and I’ve seen a LOT of their Performances). Hell, the guys have been at this since winter training in El Centro, California! But it just goes to prove that even the ‘BEST of the BEST’ have their ‘bad days’, huh!   : )

Hopefully TODAY the ‘Blue Angels’ will fly the way they know they can.

Anyhow.   : )

Here’s a video I did previously this year. In it I discuss …. hell, I can’t remember <g> ….what happened to be on my mind at that time.   : )

For my New Visitors, the video will give you a ‘look’ at me ~ Scorpio ~, as well you’ll hear what a sexy voice I have.   : )

FLYBOYS

Posted by scorpiomkm on October 9, 2009

I’m headed out the door to watch my Beloved “Blue Angels” streak across a deep blue sky over the San Francisco Bay …. fly above the heads of envious kats (like me) who wish they were in the cockpits of thunderous War Eagles like F-18 Fighter Jets that THE BLUES navigate in tight ~ SUPER TIGHT ~ formations …. and while doing so scare the hell out of cats, dogs, and Old Folk.   : )

But since I can’t, the next best thing for kats like me is to be jealous of Celebrity Kats that get the priviledge of riding with one of the ‘Blue Angels’.

The Navy has the “Blue Angels” as their decorated Flight Demonstration Team, while the Air Force has its “Thunder Birds”. And while I’m partial to the “Blue Angels” as ‘My Favorites’ (after all, I hold that Navy Pilots are the BEST OF THE BEST since Navy Pilots have to Land and ‘jump off’ Aircraft Carriers, often at NIGHT), I nevertheless have a deep RESPECT for Air Force ‘Flyboys’.

Take a look at this video of 2 Celebs that had the Honor of flying with a “Blue Angel” as well as a “Thunderbird” pilot while promoting an upcoming Film (at the time) entitled ‘Flyboys’.

Man! Are those two Stars very fortunate kats!   : )

On the Wednesday before their Weekend Shows, the ‘Blue Angels’ take Celebs and Media Types up for a Magnificent Ride in their fabulous F-18 Hornet. What I wouldn’t give to be so Honored to take a Flight with a Blue Angel, baby!   : )

This video will give you a ‘taste’ of what it must be like to ride with a “Blue Angel”!

Enjoy.

BARACK: You’re a Baaad Man!

Posted by scorpiomkm on October 9, 2009

OSLO – President Barack Obama won the 2009 Nobel Peace Prize on Friday in a stunning decision designed to encourage his initiatives to reduce nuclear arms, ease tensions with the Muslim world and stress diplomacy and cooperation rather than unilateralism.

Many observers were shocked by the unexpected choice so early in the Obama presidency, which began less than two weeks before the Feb. 1 nomination deadline and has yet to yield concrete achievements in peacemaking.

Some around the world objected to the choice of Obama, who still oversees wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and has launched deadly counter-terror strikes in Pakistan and Somalia.

The Norwegian Nobel Committee countered that it was trying “to promote what he stands for and the positive processes that have started now.” It lauded the change in global mood wrought by Obama’s calls for peace and cooperation, and praised his pledges to reduce the world stock of nuclear arms, ease American conflicts with Muslim nations and strengthen the U.S. role in combating climate change.

The peace prize was created partly to encourage ongoing peace efforts but Obama’s efforts are at far earlier stages than past winners’. The Nobel committee acknowledged that they may not bear fruit at all.

“He got the prize because he has been able to change the international climate,” Nobel Committee chairman Thorbjoern Jagland said. “Some people say, and I understand it, isn’t it premature? Too early? Well, I’d say then that it could be too late to respond three years from now. It is now that we have the opportunity to respond — all of us.”

***********

So I open my morning paper and see: My “Blue Angels” streaking across the Golden Gate Bridge; pixs of Tiger Woods and the other Best U.S. Golfers participate at San Francisco’s Harding Park for the ‘President’s Cup’; Michael Crabtree now OFFICIALLY a member of the San Francisco 49ers and “Yes” … President Barack Obama has now won the Nobel Peace Prize!!

Does it get any better than THAT!!!   : )

You know ~ since I brought up the name ‘Tiger Woods’ <g> ~ I recall when Tiger first made his mark on the PGA Tour; how all the HATERS and Racists went NUTS over   “How dare this Black Man even be mentioned in the same breath with Jack … or Arnie …. or Player …. or Hell: even Fuzz !” And on BOARD AFTER BOARD I’d tell my misguided and racists White Brothers this:

“Hey! Just set aside your White Supremists and ignorant moronic prejudices aside and JUST ENJOY the enormous Talent and Brilliance that is Tiger Woods, because you won’t see his ‘likes’ ever again!”

Now then. I’ve again told all my KKK inclined <g> White Brothers on the Right ~ Far Right ~ and Conservative persuasion: “Hey! Just set aside your White Supremists and ignorant moronic proclivities and prejudices and JUST ENJOY the enormous Talent and Brilliance that is Barack Obama, because you won’t see his ‘likes’ ever again!” But of course, many of my White Brothers prefer to go to their graves just as Ignorant and Foolish as the day they were born.

Sad.

America has ‘Changed’, folks. And in a most fundamental way. This country ~ My America ~ in my lifetime is wrestling with mighty Insurance Companies and their Lobbyists (not to mention their ‘Paid For’ politicians) to make Health Care a ‘Human Right’! Under Obama, “WE THE PEOPLE” actually means something at every fabric in American Life ….that echoes around the World!

In my Life there have only been 2 Presidents (save Lyndon Johnson) that actually meant a tinkers damn to me: JFK and Barack Obama. Why: because these two MEN looked toward the FUTURE while struggling to get the good ship ‘USS America’ out the muck and mire of the Past. A Past that was often plagued with Prejudice, Hatred, Ignorance and Greed (the Four Horsemen).

‘Keep on Keeping On’, President Barack Obama!!

You’ve done GREAT!!
