The Perfect Storm Is On The Horizon i1 & i2

August 12, 2017 Leave a comment

The perfect storm is coming and no one will be able to stop it.  Today is a day in 2017 and within the next years perhaps within 10 years changes will happen blazingly fast.  The following issues may or may not be politically correct and are partly my observation.  That’s not why I choose to deliver this message like this.  These are points that I think go unnoticed and I’m just putting my spin on them. I will be releasing a couple of points a week. 🙂 Well, that’s if I’m not interrupted and have the time.

Issue 1:

The majority of baby boomers will be retiring.  As retirements start most will not spend as much as they did when working and sadly they’ve not saved much over their lifetimes. This will cause a drain on programs designed to assist those in need and will not put money back into the economy. I did see a Bloomberg report the other day that said retires need to learn how to spend money. WTF. That won’t help. Leave us alone we know how to spend and while our saving habits has a lot to be desired, our spending won’t change nor improve where the economy is headed. Here is the link to that report. https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2017-05-16/rich-retirees-are-hoarding-cash-out-of-fear

It’s not hording. Does Greece, Argentina, Brazil and other countries not give you pause? Those folks are practically selling body parts to get food for their families.  That could very well happen in the United States. What we will see are people fighting for specials at Walmart’s and others stores around the holidays. And, to think some communities outright ban victory gardens or gardens to help supplement a grocery bill.  We must all learn and relearn how to help our self as no one will be there for you or your family….

Issue 2:

The cost for medical and other benefits will be staggering.  Partly due to our over indulgences and becoming fat. Yes fat and not the politically correct obese. Health issues associated with being fat are diabetes, heart failure and kidney damage.  Medicare is not what it should be and healthcare in this country, seems to be devoted to the insurer’s enabling them to invest money into other things. And when those other things come crashing down. (Housing bubble, stock bubble, TECH BUBBLE! etc. .) HEALTH CARE COSTS WILL INCREASE.  The notion that there is a healthy fat and fit person is a misnomer. https://www.independent.co.uk/life-style/health-and-families/obesity-healthy-not-possible-fat-fit-study-coronary-heart-disease-stroke-birmingham-university-a7739891.html

Let’s not start talking about the NSAIDS that are freely handed out and taken by all. Even our own government is issuing warnings about NSAIDS. https://www.fda.gov/Drugs/DrugSafety/PostmarketDrugSafetyInformationforPatientsandProviders/ucm150314.htm

I’ve not seen nor heard ad campaigns announcing this have you??

Issue 3:

 

Next UP…..

 

Poke Poke Poke

As I work on next post. This off the wall post will have to do.  🙂

I get poked all the time. Men, women, goats. It doesn’t matter. LOL There are the people that poke and when you poke back, like a robot an instant poke back. That’s darn right odd. You have the hokyPoke, Do the HokyPokey ya know the thing with your left and right legs. Pokémon, Gumby and Pokey, Poke Salad, Poke fish, and if you have the off the wall religion. “The Poke” is arriving soon! It was also my understanding that if a stranger pokes you and you answer back they’ll have temporary access to view your profile even if it is listed as private thus finding a living person from the poke. If you poke too many people you could end up with a finger disease@! “Fuck you now becomes Poke You”. Sorry for the bad word. But, it fit and I thought it was funny.

There’s nothing more common than the commonality about commonness and the ability to not read this post. #kravis

Fourth Of July – Freedom

The 4th of July. A celebration of independence where the original 13 colonies declared themselves to be a new nation.  A nation that I was born into and a nation that I’ll leave only at my death.  The past 241 years have been both exciting and tumultuous.  Future generations won’t know what hit them as the 4th of July’s great intent on being a free nation fades from people’s memories.

I don’t fault anyone for celebrating on the 4th of July.  As, that’s the intent and meaning of what freedom should be all about.  There are some that are downright mean assed people that are willing to go to any extent to take those freedoms from you.

Even though this is slightly related, and I mean slightly. Most cities around where I live don’t allow for fireworks to be lite off. Not even in your front yard.  But, we can go congregate into very large groups 5k 10K some places, fight traffic and well. I’d wish we could have our own celebrations again.

We must all stand up for freedom.  Just because we have freedom that does not mean, stealing or harming others, those that are strong should protect the weak.  Freedom means to do the right thing, the just thing for all peoples.  That’s why I and many family members joined the Army, Navy, Airforce and Marines. That’s right we believe in freedom and that’s why we all served.

I’m not nor will never be perfect.  But, I will stand up for freedom!

3D ART: A Night In the Desert

A Night In The Desert

In the still of the night. Yeah, I know an old song title. However, I’d like to find a place where you can still hear nature and see the stars with eyes of wonder.

“To find the universal elements enough; to find the air and the water exhilarating; to be refreshed by a morning walk or an evening saunter… to be thrilled by the stars at night; to be elated over a bird’s nest or a wildflower in spring – these are some of the rewards of the simple life.”
John Burroughs

Enjoy 🙂

3D ART :- Stay The Course For Family and Friends

3D ART :- Stay The Course For Family and Friends

“I declare to you that woman must not depend upon the protection of man, but must be taught to protect herself, and there I take my stand.”
Susan B. Anthony

I shall protect my children and my children’s children.

I shall protect my children and my children’s children.  We must stay vigilant and aware of our surroundings at all times.  Even when relaxing keep an eye open. Because we still must enjoy life and not be afraid that terrorists might live in the neighborhood.

I shall protect my children and my children’s children.

I shall protect my children and my children’s children.

3D ART :- Never Stop Reaching

I’ve been a long time fan of Robert Browning’s work and this is one of my favorite quotes from his collection.

“Ah, but a man’s reach should exceed his grasp, Or what’s a heaven for?” Robert Browning

A quote by me. “Stung by imaginations melded glory, pulled and connected life’s odd demeanor. As I alone amongst the stars grasp at life’s curiosities”… #kravis

So many people give up with each small obstacle they face. Those small obstacles add up if you don’t deal with them appropriately on your way to the big picture dream.  I use to count myself in with that group of people. However, I’ve always been dreaming and I’ve been grasping and reaching. I’m still trying and will never give up!

My commitment is to Self in order to become a better me for you. 🙂

3D ART :- The Night Is Still Young

3D ART :- The Night Is Still Young

This is a little of everything.  I bought an item from renderosity from artist EDART3D (off site link  https://www.renderosity.com/mod/bcs/?ViewProduct=118117) and they in turn gave me a free copy of this character with cool face designs. And, some items from DAZ3d of course my own photography is included.  Image was simple in nature, just made sure that the pose and all the items worked well together.

As I put this image together it kind of reminded me of Halle Berry as Jinx in the James Bond movie “Die Another Day”.
