THINGS DON’T ALWAYS WORKOUT THE WAY YOU PLAN
By Ron Munden

It has been over 50 years since I moved to California and almost 20 years since I returned to Texas. Maybe it is because I am getting older or just because I am bored but for some reason memories of those first few years in the San Francisco Bay Area keep popping into my mind with increasing frequency.

Recently I decided to capture these memories so I can at least use them as content on my websites EastTexasExposed.com and iEXPOSED.us. I am recording them as they flash into my memory so this will not be a chronological record of that period. I will try to provide the general timeframe when the evens occurred.

I will start by story by describing how I ended up in California. That was never part of my master plan but I definitely had a master plan.

moore: Winter Storm Watch
By Lad Moore

My dad always explained his Ozark Mountain Toddy as being three fingers of light rain and six ounces of fast-moving Artic blast.

* * *

It was the first morning after a severe winter storm. The ice coated everything with a crystal coverlet, strikingly beautiful amidst all the devastation. Across the yard lay cords of limbs torn from trees, and piles of branches shattered into wooden-cored icicles. Each blade of grass was engorged with glass-like armor, armor so heavy it could not support itself upright. In the rubble also lay the giant left arm of our sycamore, longtime host to my tire swing. I remember having previously worried that the thick rubber truck tire or the steel chain would surely decay before that giant tree would ever so much as bend. Not so. It had come crashing down, violating even the sanctity of the empty doghouse that sat in the tree’s comforting shade for the two summers after my dog Angus had died.

CULT (definition)
By George S. Smith

* A misplaced or excessive admiration for a particular person or thing.

“a cult of personality”

If you are a believer in the actions, deeds, musings and pronouncements of President Donald Trump despite his constant stream of lies, deranged attacks on enemies and allies, blatant examples of inciting his followers to commit unlawful acts, and being responsible for the failed efforts to control the pandemic in this country, you are a member of a cult:

If you are a politician and believe your livelihood , your freedom, and, your very life, is umbilically connected to supporting the president, right or wrong, you are a cult member.

If you see Trump as a messenger from God, sent to do battle with the liberal elements trying to turn America into a socialist nation, you are a member of the Cult of Trump.

munden: 2020 Has Demonstrated One Thing
01/04/2021

COVID-19 has demonstrated one thing — the United States cannot win a war against an adversary — be it a nation or a virus.

This country’s response Covid has been a complete failure. We have more cases and deaths even though other countries have bigger populations and less resources.

We can say that this is because of poor leadership by President Trump. While Trump contributed to the failure, he is not the big reason for the failure.

We have met the enemy and it is us — the American people.

Thank God – World War II was fought by America’s greatest generation. If my generations and the following generations had been responsible for winning WWII, we would be speaking German today.

video: Birds at the Feeder
The bird feeders become much more popular when the temperature drops. This video was recorded just before the snow storm 2021. The goldfinches had arrive just after Christmas. They were joined for dinner by several tufted titmouses. Even a few sparrows dropped by when they heard someone was videoing.

OPINION: THE ROBOTS ARE COMING
Editor’s note:
I wrote this story in October 2018. Since that time robotic has advanced as predicted. Sadly, 27 months has passed a our government has still not started to address this problem. Andrew Yang is the only person I have heard discuss the what we a facing.

Today there is lots of talk about 7000 immigrants from Central America walking through Mexico and headed to the U.S. border. People are afraid these people are coming to take our jobs. Fortunately, the President has promised to protect our jobs from these invaders.

I am confident that this nation will get through this event and it will have no significant impact on the citizens of this country.

These are not the invaders that concern me. The invaders that concern me will be coming by the millions and will have a major impact on American jobs. They will change society from what we have today.
