Here’s What I Know, Volume #18: Cancer is a relentless asshole and I hate it


Dose of Buffa

Life isn’t fair, and the proof comes in a variety of ways.

Before we get into what else I know, let’s talk about the unfortunate truths one can’t change.

First off, cancer is a relentless asshole that took another good person in their 30’s this week. Former Cardinal Chris Duncan passed away at the tender age of 38 after a seven year battle with brain cancer. I could list a thousand reasons why Duncan didn’t deserve to die, but I will only get more mad and start breaking shit.

Here’s the thing. You don’t have to know someone in order for their passing to make you sad. Some people just make a connection. This was true when Le’Roi Moore, saxophonist for the Dave Matthews Band, passed away in 2008. I didn’t know Moore, but his death rocked me. The way he played the sax, enlivening Matthews’ lyrics, spoke to me.

arlin report thought of the day: need a regharge?


I don’t question my value, my worth what have you. No I am not talking about material wealth. I am speaking of the mind, my thoughts and my words. I think sometimes I need to recharge, sort of like my cell phone. I should just sit back, go to idle……….wait for it all to return, see where I am guided to, where the spirit takes me. Does it take me beyond myself?

hollywood does nothing of the kind, will never walk in our shoes


While James Cameron may be beating a drum for climate change (awareness) what have you and leading a charge in his fantasy world called Hollywood, his people may talk the talk but they are like those in Washington D.C. Nothing applies to them, it is us only us common folk that are to abide. They want to make the rules, try and lead us down a different trail that they will never follow. They always walk in different, arrogant shoes. Their pride is lost, they just don’t know it.

arlin report thought of the day: not knowing is the hard part…….of anything


I’ve known for about 10 days now that I would be having robotic surgery to remove my cancerous prostate. What has been giving me sleepless nights is NOT KNOWING when! Yesterday the surgeons office called to let me know that an October 24th (2019) date has been scheduled (7:30 AM surgical time). And guess what, I got a great full nights sleep, just knowing! Its not so much I’ll be going through the surgery and recovery period that makes me restless, its just any of the not knowing (if I had the cancer) and not knowing when (or how we’d proceed). Now that I know the what, how, when and where the mind is more at ease. I know, though it won’t be pleasant I can deal with it.

Now I can get back to dealing with and writing about normal things, you know like political and government corruption, stuff we have come to expect daily. Here is a thought I came up with thinking about what I was going to write today: Our government, politicians in general and this includes the presidential candidates ARE CANCEROUS. Think about it, they infect us with their BS and it just keeps spreading. They don’t find cures. Things just keep getting worse. What they spread is only to benefit themselves. They literally eat away at us, take from us.

The Democrats (listen to the candidates) want to control every aspect of our lives. They have truly fed off their hopeful Hillary Clinton “We have to make decisions for people because they aren’t capable (smart enough) to make them for themselves, we (I as in Hillary) can only make those decisions.” They are saying we should not be ALLOWED to eat meat (not we shouldn’t but not allowed). Before long they’ll order us how we should dress, how our hair is to be styled, who we can socialize with, what we can drink, where we can travel. When will it stop?

You want to know what socialism looks like? Look at the Democratic Party.

Its nice to have my head clear!! Have a great day!
