Boomer’s Rambles

Pride, health, sanity……….what more do we really need.  I want to know!!

Materialism……what about that?……  I believe that is what drives most people nowadays.   Having to have what everyone else has.  That need to be looked upon as having and not wanting.  Who cares if you are healthy, you can be proud that you own the latest ipad, and iphone.  You have the biggest TV on the block.  In my opinion it is the very thing that has ruined this country.  That is right the very credit you used to obtain those items is the reason the big banks keep getting richer.  While you stay indebted to them for as long as you live.  Question!!  Is there really any pride being shown here?!?  Because it definitely ain’t healthy!!!

A conspiracy theory:  (one of many I here everyday)  It appears that a certain side of the fence (as it were) would love to eliminate the middle class.  You would have two categories rich and poor. The rich would keep getting richer and the poor would eventually have to give in to the demands of the rich.  All there struggling to get by everything they did would be nothing more than working to make the rich more powerful, until they had full control.  The health of your wealth going into someone else’s pocket!!!!

So back to pride and health.  If you have both of these things, it would be a lot harder for someone to keep you down. You would use your health to keep yourself working and driving to achieve the goals we all want. No!! I am not talking about the materialistic crap.  I am talking about self-esteem.  Self-esteem which leads to pride.   Pride is then what you use to help your fellow man reach his full potential.  I believe the more of us striving to reach the heights we are capable of the better.  That in turn would lead to the country being in better shape.

Uh Oh…..sounds like we may need to revert back to the days when this country was still trying to establish itself.

As for the materialistic crap I referred to earlier, helping people to keep up with the Jones-es if you will.  This is the main reason for the problems we are having now.  Yeah!!! You heard me!!!    Credit and debt go hand in hand.  The more credit you have the more debt you create for yourself.  All this in the name of keeping up with John and Jane Doe Jones.   Where be the sanity now???

About Bigboomer

Hello, first of all I would like to thank you for visiting my blogsite. I am going to tell you a little about me. My name is Ray, I started writing back in high school. Every once in a while I would come up with a few ideas and would write them down. Most of which became poems others became short stories. Some of my inspirations are of the heart, some of them come from the thoughts of the day. You will see, as you browse threw my site my poetry is about as diverse as you can get. I hope that as you read them some will have you thinking of love, while others will make you feel sorrow. I would like some of them to set you off to an adventure. Finally, I have some poems that may make you hungry. I do have some inspirations that just plane turn into ramblings or rants as, if you read in here, you will see. I have managed to get two books published so far, the first one is titled Pathways, it may be found at xlibris.com/RayBohdan.html. there you can view a couple of excerpts form the book. The second book is Mingling Hues of My Mind it is at publish America A little bit more about me. I am fifty-one years old I have three children, Rainney, Elisa, and Anthony and two well, actually, three grandchildren Raeanne Marie, Graycee, and Amaya. I guess I could go on, but then I am afraid this will come out sounding like a dating profile. Part of my site will be dedicated to my poetry, I plan to break it down into different sections and organize it by type/style. Another section of this site will be dedicated to my blog it will be about my rants/thoughts of the day. These will vary from political, to personal, to comical. I will talk about most anything and everything that I feel may be of interest to someone. I also will devote a section to some of my favorite recipes with hints on how to capture his/her heart by winning their stomach. My favorite foods are Italian and Mexican, but this section will not be limited to those two types. I do believe however, that the most important part of my site will be the dedication pages. These will be to memorialize special loved ones and friends, as well as thank those that have made purchases of my afore-mentioned book. This is exactly what you think it is. A way for me to sell my self as a writer. Publicly get my words and thoughts out into the world. Please believe me when I say that this in no way demeans or diminishes my passions for the people and the love of which I have written, and will continue to write. I trust that once you read my poems you will feel the love i have felt, the pains I have been through, and the joys of life itself. Once again I thank you for stopping by please enjoy.
