Boomer’s Ramblings (A comedy of government irony)

My friend, Sean Ivey, posted this on his Facebook page and when he was telling me about it I thought it would make a great blog. let’s face it we all like to make fun of the government at one time or another. This turns out to be perfect for that very thing.

The SNAP/food stamp program administered by the Department of Agriculture, is pleased to be distributing the greatest amount of free meals and food stamps ever.

Meanwhile the National Park Service, administered by the U.S. Department of the Interior, asked us to “please not to feed the animals” signs are all around the park. They say the animals would become dependent on the handouts and not learn to take care of themselves.

Apparently it is alright for humans to become dependent on handouts and not take care of themselves. Heaven forbid if the animals we keep in our parks become dependent. If they really do not want that to happen maybe we should put the animals back into the wild and throw the humans into the parks. That way the handouts could be more easily regulated. The humans that don’t really need them and are just mooching would be put down. Or…actually released back into the wild to fend for themselves. I do know there are people on welfare that deserve all they get and in some cases deserve more than they receive. I also see, on almost a daily basis, that there are quite a few that do not now, nor have they ever earned their way into the system. Yet some of them get  more benefits than some of the others that do earn them. As part of my wake-em-up slap in the face to them that need it….this has been happening for years now.

My Disclaimer: (I) I realize that this would require the government to actually get off the duffs and do some research and possibly their jobs. As a firm believer of the government being the laziest and most narcissistic part of this country. I do not feel that will ever happen.

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.
