April's Fools Day: When the Fool Became Informed

Yesterday was a good day. In the morning I was kind of irritated by a couple things I read in the news, as usual now a days. Then I looked outside and seen overcast skies. Brrr + shiver = misery! I hate being cold. It was April's Fools Day, and the day looked like it was made for fools.

So I went to the bus stop anyway. At the stop I met a lady I had talked to before. She and I talked about politics. I asked her who she supports, and she replied "Trump". So I asked her why she supports him? I got the standard fare one would expect from someone who is steeped in the FOX news network speel. She said "Because Trump will stop all them Mexicans from coming over here and stealing our jobs."

I've got to stop right here a minute, and try to be objective. The lady I was talking to wasn't a bad person. She was a fooled person. I'm finding there is a huge difference. There are people out there who are so filled with hate, they are vile and despicable human beings who are to be despised. Then then again there are the others! Their victims. The lady I was talking to was every bit as much of a victim of injustice as any other human being who has ever been.

I asked her how old she is, and she replied 57. I was a bit surprised because I was guessing 70ish. I asked if she was on social security, and she said SSI. She lives in a trailer park I know because she mentioned it when she referred to some others who were getting assistance. This lady looked like she had a hard life. She looked worn, but I could tell her mind was still sharp.

I think she has been fooled by the media and the machine. She is one of the people that the criminal conspiracy, which was concocted by the traitorous oligarchy with their network of media, was successful at duping by spreading deception and propaganda. Do you get what I'm saying here? She has just reason for compensation for damages, as far as I'm concerned.

So I told her the real situation. Of millions of jobs that have been shipped off to foreign lands and who did it. Who worked with them to do it and how, baby. I spilled my guts. She listened too! This person wasn't stupid. She asked questions. She was using reason and logic.

You can tell the difference. You know them persons like the one I seen in the video who said "I'll punch you if you don't like Trump." There is no way to reason with a person like that. They are fully given over to evil. It is best to turn away and to not say another word. Just walk away. This lady I spoke with wasn't one of them. Even though she lives among them, she is one of the ones of reason. She said she will for sure check out what I said. She was looking at a Bernie Sanders video when I left. Maybe she will tell other people she knows. Maybe she will tell the other victims of the oligarchy.

That's one of the good things that happened on April's Fools Day for me, but I'm only getting started. After that wonderful meeting at the bus stop, I went to the VA hospital. I met with my lady to have lunch and talk. We are like minded on all things political. She serves our Veterans and is passionate about Veteran's issues. I had some green chile stew. It was yummy!

After an enjoyable lunch, I made my way to the Hippy shop, Birdland. As I walked down the street, I noticed a fellow walking in the opposite direction with a blanket thrown over his shoulders. He had raggedy shoes, and walked in a shuffling manner. It was quite obvious that he was homeless and had been that way for years. I turned around as he passed and said "Here, take this." and gave him a hand full of quarters. So away I went.

When I got to Birdland I was excited. That place is cool! It is a Hippy Shop that has been a fixture in Nobb Hill of Albuquerque for years. Now they are a medical cannabis dispensary too! That is so convenient for me because it is right on the bus line. Inside the shop is really cool too. You have to check it out.

When I got to the counter I introduced myself, and told them I admire what they are doing. Right off the bat it was up front and open we are all Democratic Socialists speaking together. We all were feeling the Bern!

I after the intro, I filled out the registration form, and told them I had to go to Zombie Comic and see if I can sell these old 1970's underground Freak Brothers Comic books. I showed him and did his eyes ever light up. He was a fan from way back. He said to go on over to Zombie and see about if. Then If i wasn't offered a good price to come back. So away I went.

At the counter of the Zombie, I greeted the young man and said, "I have some comic with me I want to sell." He said the owner will have to check them out and that he would be back in 5 minutes. So as I waited a conversation started. I told him after I got done here I was going back over to Birdland. He said he wishes he had a card, or that cannabis were legal. I said "Me too brother!" So of course the topic of Bernie Sanders came up. So did the fact that one year ago we would ask if a person knew who Bernie is and they would say "no", and now everyone says "yes". I asked him if he had ever heard of ward meetings, and he of course said no. So I informed him about that, and he was glad of it. He said he is going to tell everyone he knows! I was very please.

The owner had already returned and had written an offer. It was extremely inadequate, so I politely declined their offer. I bid them farewell and back to birdland I went.

A fellow I had met at Birdland offered me a fair offer for the three Freak Brothers. He said he was going to place them in his collection. I'm glad he got them because he appreciates them as true Hippy Memorabilia. They are getting kind of rare too. Each of the Freak Bros. he got were 1 of 10,000 and 40 years old. They are in good hands.

So now I have enough to get some meds. They have a really nice dispensary there at Birdland. The bud is quality stuff. The staff is knowledgeable too! I am quite happy that I stopped in there. I will be going back, and soon.

Now that all of that was done, time to go home. The sun was shining and the warmth of its rays felt good. The buses were all right on time too. I didn't even have to wait very long at the 2 bus stops. So I was home in no time. When I got home, I filled up the pipe they had given me in a gift pack at Birdland. I sat back and took a puff on the pipe while sitting in the backyard. The cramps in my feet and the tingling in my hands subsided. I was at ease and all seemed to be going in the right direction. I think the future looks bright. I'm not saying that there will not be a struggle. I'm saying that the future looks really good. All is well with the world. Humans are being enlightened. Humans are progressing. The proof is all around us. I can hear the proof shouting "Enough is Enough". I'm shouting right along with them too.
