Love Letters goes to Maine, USA

Posted by on Sep 1, 2017 in All Blog Posts, Media, Photo | 0 comments

The last couple years I’ve nursed my mother, Arline, to fully recover her well being. We moved a few times. This included Arline going in and out of an assisted living place. She also had a short stay in a memory care facility. Lot’s of drama and decline in these places. Every senior who needs a nurse deserves a nurse. Lucky Arline.

I pulled Arline out of two places. Even the best are problematic. After dealing with a slimy back stabbing corporate mentality that works to drug seniors, I made a decision to rent a house for my mother and to hire and train private caregivers myself. She’s not on any medications other than CBD medical cannabis to help with relaxation and sleep. She lives a fairly normal life and that makes all the difference.

By pulling mom out of managed care and caring for her myself with good help, I got her life and mental health back. It’s not often a nurse gets this much satisfaction. Even so much health here we’re getting ready to fly to Love Letters, USA – Maine.

Today Arline’s usual charm with gentlemen got her ordained as a Junior Officer of the Santa Barbara CHP.  She’s got the sticker to prove it too.

Nothing Gold can Stay by Robert Frost

Nothing Gold Can Stay

Nature’s first green is gold, 
Her hardest hue to hold. 
Her early leaf’s a flower; 
But only so an hour. 
Then leaf subsides to leaf. 
So Eden sank to grief, 
So dawn goes down to day. 
Nothing gold can stay.

College Professors and Social Justice Studies

Posted by on Mar 17, 2017 in All Blog Posts, Bowdoin College, Media | 0 comments

It’s been four years since I posted about the scientific Bowdoin study. That study shows what’s going on on college campuses, the attack on Western culture and critical thinking. Tonight I watched an update on this topic. It’s a youtube by Millie Weaver of Infowars. It shocks me to see a college professor profess that all racism is white supremacy.

This general issue about what’s going on at the colleges is something that I’ve felt uncertain about. Last summer I watched meetings of the National Association of Scholars. I learned what virtue signaling is. I watched Hillary Clinton do a lot of that. And I wondered what could ever be done about this problem.

Then Trump came along. He put the lens on PC culture. So much now seems a miracle.

A Scarlet Letterman for Donald Trump

The Scarlet Letter, a classic novel by Bowdoin College graduate Nathaniel Hawthorne

Hollywood style PC is a threat to comedy. To shun someone is to behave like a bully.

David Letterman in a recent interview called for Donald Trump to be shunned. Letterman said “if you see somebody who’s not behaving like any human you’ve known, that means something. They need an appointment with a psychiatrist. They need a diagnosis and they need a prescription.” He points to Trump’s once alledged imitation of a reporter with a disability, something similar to a comedy bit comedian Denny Johnston has done on stage for decades. It’s outdated, weak comedy, but not horrific. Why is Letterman now the comedy morality police? Here’s video of Letterman groping my ass when I was 16 years old (that part’s at the very end). Not to point fingers….

“Shunned” is like what happens in  “The Scarlet Letter”, by Bowdoin College graduate Nathaniel Hawthorne. Hollywood elites attack Donald Trump for offensive “locker room talk”.

But these are the very so-called values of sexual promiscuity that Hollywood grandly promotes in movies and TV for decades. Chasing women happens a lot in romance novels, over 50% + of paperback book sales. Decadence is what Hollywood stands for.

In a previous WW2 Love Letters blog I write about Robin William’s suicide and the problem of war vet suicide. His suicide was, in my opinion, caused by a side effect of prescribed psychiatric medications. I believe Robin’s suicide was caused by bad advice and it’s not funny. Yet Letterman thinks sarcastic advice for Donald Trump “see a doctor, get a prescription” is OK and PC.

I say this to President Trump: “Here’s your psychiatrist.” I found this old video footage in storage. All improv. I’d never met David Letterman when I was “on set” with him. I was a guest walk-on, like an extra. In the film, I’m the girl with the long hair in the dress, standing next to him on the left, at the very end. Something happened to me as camera rolled. All of a sudden there was an unscripted sneaky doctor hand, David Letterman’s, groping near my ass. See me giggle AND pull his hand away from my backside at 3:30 on the footage. At the time I had no idea what the theme of this sketch was. Really, it’s just no big deal.

My point in sharing this video is that this is Hollywood culture. Letterman has no moral high ground position to be judgmental, then or ever. Grabbing ass is not so unwelcome as you can see here in this video. But it is a bit shocking when it happens to you.

I was 15 or 16 at the time. It’s before David Letterman or Robin Williams were famous. In response to Letterman’s recent statements about Donald Trump saying Trump should be shunned and needs a psychiatric diagnosis: I submit this historical specimen. Funny has many flavors. Funny takes care of itself. Comedy in America doesn’t need Hollywood PC censorship.

This time capsule shows Letterman playing a predator psychiatric doctor who really likes his nurses. Robin Williams is Joe Bob Walker, an alien life-UFO appreciator, a UFO welcomer. The Joe Bob Show is emblematic. Like the pharmaceutical companies of today and used car salesmen of yesteryear, Joe Bob has bought up all the TV stations and ad time. He keeps popping in, annoyingly like Cal Worthington used car ads, on his sponsored show.
