We welcome you to Thanks For Listening. We think it to be one of the best websites of its kind. The title comes from the sign-off to the southendttp.co.uk award winning column in the Westside Journal in Port Allen, Louisiana. Each column is initiated with this kind of caring, whether with the poignancy of the Christmas message: The Little Star or noting the interaction of a father and son as the father slips away into the shadow world of Alzheimer disease. The award winning Gardens of Stone warned of the dismal flourishing of military funerals for casualties sacrificed post 9/11. The writing is www.southendttp.co.uk both powerful and effective, presenting points to ponder and answers to be demanded. Our honest and sometimes controversial approach to analyzing issues is garnered from years of stepping to the front lines to better assess and confront problems. We try to exhibit strong, solid writing, but with a sense of poignancy but never shying away from the irreverence punctuating the depth of our reader (and our) life experiences. We try to get straight to the point. Based in small town America, communication energy spreads to cities and villages alike; it's us, being us and trying to make sense of it all lips away into the shadow world of Alzheimer disease. The award winning Gardens of Stone? We warned of the dismal flourishing of military funeral rites at the outset of military operations and the first casualties sacrificed post 9/11.Ā The writing is both powerful and effective, presenting points to ponder and answers to be demanded. Communication is people relating socially interacting as equals, each adding an element to the sauce piquant of community. Without communication we're another herd moving toward sterile domestication or extinction as a people? We look at people, placing elements of their personhood in the spotlight for their neighbors to admire or possibly view with a more jaundiced eye. We're not afraid to tackle the tough issues of the day whether they're on the national, regional or local level.

Soulless eyes
04/23/15
Soulless eyes By Sarge After Hilarity Clinton had her health scare suggesting she had a stroke or minor brain infarct when she was still Secretary of State she started wearing special glasses to help her focus properly. Then, more recently sheís taken to wearing her sunglasses when she orders at Scarf and Barf establishments. These glasses obviously donít work as effectively as her prescription lenses because they donít allow her to focus on the tip jar designed to help the people she claims to represent. Theyíre trying to make a living on The Fair Labor Standards Act requiring a minimum wage of $2.13 for tipped workers with the expectation that wages plus tips total no less than $7.25 per hour. (US Department of Labor) Ronald Reagan started this crap decades ago because he was of the belief all people would give a gratuity so restauranteurs wouldnít be punished by having to pay minimum wage and cut into their bottom line. He didnít count on people like Clinton feeling entitled to service by minions. She understands the concept of ďserversĒ; she simply canít equate to them. Itís evident the darkened shades help her to not suffer the glare of these people when she stiffs them for the gratuity expected for good service. Maybe she didnít feel the service was good enough to deserve a tip. But, looking at her track record it appears more logical sheís so out of touch with what the middle class is about, she just didnít feel these kids need to survive on anything more than $2.13 an hour. Why help them when you can focus on Wall Street and Income Inequality? In order to understand the idea Iím trying to get across we must look at her eyewear. The post-incident lenses adopted appeared to present a wavy appearance helping her to focus as the vision centers of her brain were disrupted by the alleged cerebral vascular incident. Iíd suggest she was required to wear these things to support her fuzzy logic there was no real difference it made whether the Benghazi Incident occurred and who really was culpable. She didnít clearly see the fact sheís responsible (through her incompetence and indifference) for the deaths of Americans. These spectacles were designed to distract everybody from the spectacle of her petulantly pounding the table and yelling because it IS all about her but not in the way itís been shown. Thereís a severe disconnect between the people and this half-witted political dilettante. Sheís a child of wealth and position. She was a licensed lawyer. Sheís NEVER had to scratch and claw for anything sheís ever gotten or supposedly earned in spite of her lie she and Bill were ďdead brokeĒ when they left the White House. She knows nothing of sacrifice. She knows nothing of manual labor. She knows nothing of the feel of sweat dripping into your eyes as you work a field, work an assembly line or even so much as plant a flower garden to make the world brighter. All sheís done is consume, expect to progress and have a presidency given to her because her asshat husband said heíd get it for her with the multiple millions derived from selling her Secretarial position to the highest bidder through contributions to the ďClinton FoundationĒ. Yes, I believe Hilarity has vision problems. But this thought is derived from having been scuba diver years ago. While pleasure diving as a novice off of the coast of California, I was introduced to a small shark. (I make no claim to anything larger than three feet long but I was impressed with its sleekness, its speed and the fact it swims with its mouth open a lot of the time). Itís always ready to eat. But the most interesting thing I noted as it circled us was not just its curiosity as to what it could get away with: it was the soulless, blankness of its stare as it registered the possibility of getting to taste-test this intruder entering into its consciousness. Thatís the same look Iíve seen so many times in Ms. Clintonís eyes. Thanks for listening
