The Genius Of Robin Williams

genius- exceptional intellectual or creative power or other natural ability.

“Everyone you meet is fighting a battle you know absolutely nothing about. Be kind. Always.”
Robin Williams

I'd be hard pressed to find a film Robin Williams appeared in that didn't have some sort of greater meaning. I truly believe this man had more personalities living in his head waiting to come out had he been able to carry on for years longer then he was allocated to be on this earth.

I tend to think of him more as a conduit to personalities that live in another place rather then just an actor. Must have been very burdensome at times for him. What a gift he has given us that live on in his films. An inspiration. We've been lucky to have had him live his life with us for a time.

One of my all-time favorites..

These kind of videos and movies have been where I've been spending most of my time these days. It seems I was following too many idiots and not enough of the good things people do with their lives.

The Problem of Illegal Aliens

Firing Line with William F. Buckley Jr.: January 15, 1978


(1) Was a time when TV hosts asked questions then allowed their guest to fully respond.
(2) This came from a time I voted Republican (before they become what they are today).
(3) William F. Buckley was not a screamer. He would likely bore today's audiences.
(4) This goes to show immigration has always been a problem since the U.S. was formed.

I've not posted much recently because I'm disgusted with nearly the whole lot. Both those on TV. The politicians themselves and the way people react today on social media. It exhaust me. We've come to act more like screaming idiots rather then rational well spoken intelligent beings. I have no taste for it. Thus why so few posts.

I've predicted for weeks Elon Musk will destroy Twitter by the end of the month. He's a fool who thinks he can kick everyone aside and do everything himself. He can't. I feel Trump has gotten so far out of whack he won't be a player with the majority of level headed republicans. Even if there's few left of them. Our mayor in Allentown has become a ribbon cutting feel good mayor doing little to improve the negative things going on in this town. He has avoided the big issues that we need to resolve. Don't even get me started on the Allentown School District.

Sorry if I sound negative but I remember when people in all corners were a lot more respectful. A helluva lot more intelligent and offered solutions rather then bitching out anyone foolish enough to enter leadership positions both in private and government. When we never knew what positions entertainers or sports figures took. They simply performed leaving us all the better for it while keeping their mouth shut.

So that's where I'm at right now. Not inclined to engage since it isn't bringing me joy to report or complain about things going on. Besides it wouldn't change one thing. I've been spending a lot more time catching up on movies I missed and other things which remind me when people weren't so damned paranoid and angry. Stay tuned I'll post again when it seems appropriate for me to do so. In the meantime here's something I recently found which I did enjoy...

Executive Armstrong Explains Lehigh County's Budget

I think it would be a good idea for Allentown's mayor to do the same since it's that time of year again for council's approval.

Keep Your Car Doors Locked Against Road Rats

Uploaded 11/01/2022

"Rats are roaming the streets of ATVs.

One Of The Comments Left On This Video...
M Christiansen- My Niece had this happen. Her doors auto lock when the vehicle starts. She didn't slow down when one got in front of her and she clipped his back tire and sent it into another atv and flipped them both. She was ticketed and charged with reckless driving, but when she and her attorney got to court, the case was dismissed because as proof of her "bad" driving the dipshit deputy brought in his dash cam video showing for a full 3 minutes the atv's attempting to stop her and open her doors! Her attorney had the tape of the 911 call of my frantic niece begging for help and there was a deputy right behind them filming it. My niece said the judge was livid berating the deputy for not doing anything.

At this point every car should come equipped with a dash cam.

Thought I'd take a break from some of serious stuff going through my mind. BTW- Suzi Quatro is still going strong at 72 years of age. This past April (2022) she rocked out at Royal Albert Hall in England. She has many more gigs booked this year and into 2023
