arlin report thought(s) of the day: spontaneous blogger

I am so glad I am NOT keeping track of people in the news media (along with their guests they interview) that sneeze or cough into their hand(s). I would have lost track by now. But, don’t you just love people who lecture you to take up certain behavior or change habits that they can not, refuse or fail to do? I know bad habits are hard to break……cure! ūüôā

Sometimes my thought(s) of the day comes later in the day, not always upon waking. In fact, I’ve had some “thought(s) of the day” come just before I decide to hit the sack for the night. If that happens and it is beyond midnight (early AM hours) I just save it for the new day. Some days I post nothing on “thought(s) of the day”. Nothing really strikes me those days or I am in repeat mode. Thank goodness for current events. I will say this about most of my posts, those that I actually write, not the re-postings of others; I may be the most spontaneous of all bloggers/writer(s ?) that you read. Kind of like this post here! I don’t really pre-plan many of my blogs (not always). The danger in that is; I may occasionally wish I had said something a little differently or maybe not at all. But its a report you say? Yes I do search material of others and on many topics, experts and people with opinions and share it. I usually have an opinion or two or comments on all. Not sure why I am writing about this at this point, maybe I am just looking to make my posts (including “thought(s) of the day”) more interesting. What do you think?

As you probably know if you read my blogs the “ARLIN REPORT THOUGHT(S) OF THE DAY” is not the only blogging article I write. I will often write articles, usually opinion that are more than just a thought for the day……..maybe on something I have more to say on the topic; like litter. I am anti-litter (I hate litter and litter bugs). It drives me crazy, especially along roads and highways where the opportunity exists for people that have no respect for natural beauty. STOP LITTERING!

Stay healthy!


Hillary Rodham Clinton is getting great press for her new book “Hard Choices”, after all controversy sells. ¬†I’m going to Vegas and betting this will be a Best Seller. ¬†No, I didn’t blue-line it here, I refuse to help her sell her book, as if she needs help.

Unless you aren’t breathing, by now you’ve heard about the chapter on Benghazi. ¬†Here is the comment creating all the excitement: ¬† ¬† ¬†“I will not be a part of a political slugfest on the back of dead Americans. ¬†It’s just wrong, and it’s unworthy of our great country.” ¬† Now here is a quote from me……”Spoken like a true politician about to go on the campaign trail.” ¬† This is typical of how our so-called¬†leaders deal with difficult matters, by not taking any responsibility or facing accountability. ¬† That is what she is telling me.

Does she really think she is going to avoid a political slugfest as a candidate? ¬†Hillary’s comment will be like pouring gasoline on a fire, from partisan and non-partisan candidates.

I don’t know if Hillary Clinton is responsible for what happened to our people in Libya or not. ¬† I do know she was in a position to be more responsible than she apparently was, along with our President and other government officials. ¬†It’s difficult to place our trust in our leaders when events such as Benghazi occur on their watch.

Hillary, you may be or become a great author someday. ¬† ¬†I would rather see you write more articles and books; whether they are non-fiction or fiction, as of now it’s difficult to tell the difference.

We have only just begun.
