I have been reading several on – line newspapers on the subject of General David Petraeus and his scandalous behavior with a woman young enough to be his daughter.
It seems to prove the old adage: THERE IS NO FOOL LIKE AN OLD FOOL.
Apparently from lots of histories of men in their 60s or even younger, they are attracted to young women who make themselves so totally available and lead the OLD GEEKS on—then probably laugh at them behind their backs. Ther Old Guys think they are young and virile again and are puffed up with pride. (and perhaps Viagra or some similar drug)
After reading several articles on the situation with Petraeus, I think he could use a good SWIFT KICK….in a spot where it might do him a world of good….and I think you get my drift.
His wife Holly who is the innocent victim here— probably would like to be the one to administer said Swift Kick.
Our current culture barely notices such peccadillos because a huge percentage of people in this country do the same thing ..cheat on their wives or husbands with abandon til it has become a HO HUM thing.
When national security is involved it is not so HO HUM after all.
Recall that John F. Kennedy whose serial philandering and behavior of a sexual pervert and addictive got caught up in national security trouble when one of his girlfriends (Judith Campbell ) was also “getting it on” with a Mafia Don as the same time she was involved with the then president.
This was 1960s stuff but it was still a concern of national security.
The Press of that era did all they could to protect JFK from the Public learning what their President was really like in his personal life. Much of it came out after his death and even after the death of Jackie Kennedy Onassis.
That era of the Protective Press reminds me of where we are now with the Liberal Mainstream Media protecting Barack Obama in all ways they can..especially about the incompetence and total failure shown in Benghazi where 4 Americans—-one ambassador and 3 others including military men, were slaughtered by al quaeda operatives even though Obama had declared that Al Quaeda had been put to rest. (Guess again)
It seems that even the resignation of General Petraeus has been orchestrated to keep things under wraps for political purposes til Obama could get himself re elected by the stupid-est 50-60 percentage of voters since who knows when?????? Has there ever been such an ignorant electorate? Probably not— since in decades past we did not have so many DEPENDENTS who get their living and all their goodies from the national or state governments. Those who work hard and pay all the bills for everyone else are getting to be fewer and fewer and if they decide that they are not going to work any more, the Gimme- Gimme’s are going to be in deep trouble.
I am seriously thinking of becoming a government dependent by refusing to enroll in Obamacare and go to jail instead of paying the fine.
If you think that the S______ has hit the fan, just wait til Seniors like me do the same thing!!!!!

I am a retired elementary "schoolmarm"..I was a school librarian/media director for nearly 25 years before I retired in 2004. Naturally one of my fondest things is reading! I also love reading aloud to young children, something I did for so many years with amazing results; every child wants to read the same book as the teacher read!!!! I also am fond of my gardens...both flower beds and vegetable plots. I love being outdoors....mowing the lawn after my husband has done so with a big lawn tractor...I trim with my small power mower! I have a rain barrel to collect rainwater for plants! I have an old fashioned "pedal" bike I love to ride. I enjoy going to a Silver Sneakers class at a community center about 20 miles from my country home on what I call the "Buffalo Bluff" which overlooks the Buffalo River and its valley below. I LOVE to write and am working on a book for my grandkids so they will always know more about Grandma when she was still "kickin" and "had all her marbles"!!!!

One thought on “A GOOD SWIFT KICK”

  1. A Romn general may have been accompanied in his chariot by a slave holding a golden wreath above his head and constantly reminding the commander of his mortality by whispering into his ear.

    The words that the slave is said to have used are not known, but suggestions include “Respice te, hominem te memento” (“Look behind you, remember you are only a man”) and “Memento mori” (“Remember (that you are) mortal”).[22]
