(David Huckabee tortured and killed a stray dog when he was a teenager.)
Yesterday, I prepared a feast. It started with eleven dollars worth of jumbo shrimp. I fried them with liberal amounts of salt and grease. After that, I enjoyed three pieces of steak-bacon. For dessert, I ate an apple. I washed the vittles down with two bottles of Jinro soju. Talk about delightful.
I didn't watch television. I've been doing a lot of reading lately. I recently discovered an author named Conn Iggulden. He writes stories about the Mongols and the War of the Roses and the Roman Empire. His stuff thrills me. It's real escapist joy. But this is a blog about God, television, and politics. So it's probably time to put the novels away and accept my role as a happy illiterate peasant. There aren't enough hours in the day for book learning.
I paid homage to the Christ God. I said the Lord's Prayer on bended knees. No big surprise. I'm not some dirty pagan. I thanked Jesus for my good fortune. Life's gradually becoming more bearable. My eldest boy and his mother are repairing their damaged relationship. She's gradually accepting the fact that both her children are dullards. Good for her. On top of that, my cellulitis is getting better day by day. I now walk with only a slight limp.
I went to bed at 10 p.m. I had a strange dream. The actor Michael Douglas was on a television show eating pudding. He told the audience not to fall for liberal bullshit. He said that socialism kills. Perhaps this is some type of strange warning not to support Bernie Sanders. I really don't have a party. I'm a social conservative but a fiscal liberal. I'm definitely not a capitalist. I believe in free education and health care. I also believe that the poor should eat the rich. But what do I know?
I turned on CNN. My new cable provider doesn't have Fox News. What a pisser. Donald Trump insulted the Bush family. He implied that George Jr. was responsible for 9/11. I don't find Trump's words offensive. Bush couldn't find his ass with both hands. His presidency was a disgrace. And so was his father's. The last thing we need is another clown in the White House.
I read the paper later in the day. The ROK is up in arms over Mike Huckabee's remarks about dog meat. But here's the rub. Lots of Koreans still eat Fido. They cook him in a soup which they slurp in the summer. Supposedly canine flesh has lots of medicinal benefits.
Nevertheless, Governor Huckabee shouldn't throw stones at glass houses. His son David was arrested for animal cruelty after torturing and killing a stray dog back when he was a seventeen-year-old camp counselor. I thank Christ that both my children are gentle.
Anyway, it's time for the song du jour. Here's Surfin' USA by The Beach Boys. God bless.
