Drunken Rainbow Olympians Dancing on Misconstrued Clouds

First off - Congratulations to Canada for the Gold Medal!!!

OK, let's see - - - first the Olympics was all about the rainbow flag shit, not about the sports.

 Now, the world see's Canada as a place were alcohol is hand in hand with sports. What is WRONG with this picture?

Sports promotes an active and healthy lifestyle, whereas booze destroys health, spirit and families

I just do not get why it is necessary to get drunk to watch a hockey game - especially at 6am.

How many kids are waking up on Sunday morning to drunken idiots staggering in the home? I was brought up that Sunday was a family day - big Sunday breakfast and ending with the family meal at supper.

I drink, usually in excess, but, I just do not get the coalition between healthy sports and destructive alcohol. SMH!

 Hug your kiddies people, but use mouthwash first. .... Geeese!

OK, now everyone who is intoxicated can be mad at me - but you do know that I speak a truth.  Now, take your rainbow flags and use it to gather up all your beer cans - throw it over your shoulder and march to the Beer Store to get your deposits back.

Such A Long Time

"Been a long time since I left adolescence"

It seemed like a marvellous plan at the time, me leaving home to become a roaming long haired leaping gnome. The Elders tried to warn me of what lay ahead on the path called life. I never did listen well.

I would walk many a charmed path and I most definitely crawled through many a briar ridden uphill struggle to reach a life lesson. I have no regrets, but the ones I am tormented by. The darkness within for the many wrongs I mastered. I can only suffer in my own guilt till such a time as I face The Judgement and plead my case.

Living my most memorable years from the late sixties till present day, I have Blessed my soul with meeting over ten thousand souls - visited many places and if Jimi Hendrix was to sing to me, "Have YOU ever been experienced?" I would reply "Yes, yes I have."

I began dabbling in drug culture at the ripe age of ten. Shocking as it sounds, truth so it is. Times were changing then. Cowboys & Indians would be replaced by Rock & Roll. Greaser's and Hippies were actual people, not movie characters. I was introduced to LSD, STP, MDA etc., etc. Heroin became my favourite - by fourteen I was fully within the grasp of Her evilness. Alcohol was my breast milk. Guns and explosives were my toys. I was out of control in an out of control sub-culture.

Drugs, certain drugs, had a "good"' (for lack of a better word)' side. The expansion of such a young virginal consciousness allowed me to grasp many aspects of life, love, energy, karma and existence that I would have been robbed of if I lived with the Brady Bunch. I have been Blessed to experience realities and non-realities that few have or could even imagine.Within the bindings of my two books, yet to be finished, you may discover what my soul has experienced in a more thorough way.

Despite all the above, I have managed to survive five point seven decades thus far. Many years in foster care, prison and living mainly on the street since the age of fourteen. Often I ask myself how I did this, only to answer that one does not live their life, but rather their life lives them.

I believe that I grew into a good man - not a 'great' man, but with a good heart and a healthy attitude. I have slipped off the wagon many times, but I jumped onto a new wagon.

I am Blessed with many a true friend. Friends who judge me not for past transgression. Friends who know my love for them is old school true. I am VERY Blessed with three sons. Two ex-wives. An angry dog. A Dyslectic Budgie and a grouchy dragon.

I guess I am just saying, "Never judge a cover by the book."  Yes, I have a rough exterior and my interior is beat up to - BUT, regardless of who I WAS or may become, I am, after all, DANN - just as I am.

And who else can one be but that which they are?

PEACE PEOPLE, IT IS MORE THEN A CONCEPT!!!!!

RAINBOW OLYMPICS

Here is a little Facebook status that I just had to re-post because it needed to be said. I am not homophobic - I am simply stating that an International or, actually, any sporting or entertainment venue is not the place nor the time to do such things. Stealing the spotlight does not do well for striking your mark................

Quote:

"When did the Olympics become a sexual thing? I refuse to watch them because I am SO SO sick hearing about the rainbow shit. Where are the heterosexual flags OR BETTER YET - LET'S MAKE SPORTS ABOUT SPORT AND NOT WHO IS SCREWING WHO. SO SICK OF THIS PRIDE SHIT, GETS OLD AFTER A WHILE. FIRST CANADA DAY, NOW THE OLYMPICS. THERE IS A TIME AND PLACE FOR EVERYTHING. WE DON'T EVEN HAVE A STRAIGHT PRIDE DAY! NOW WHOEVER WANTS CAN GET AS MAD AS THEY WANT, BUT I AM SICK OF IT TAKING OVER ALL SOCIAL AND SPORT MEDIUMS."

"no offence meant for any body - my beef is where and how they are doing it. It steals the spotlight from the games themselves as it stole the Canada out of July 1st. I give props to Mayor Ford for standing his ground. I never take my children downtown during the pride festival because of all the sexuality. If I were to do similar, in public, with a woman we would be arrested. AND DON'T EVEN GET ME RANTING AS WHY WE HAVE OUR CHRISTMAS PARADE IN THE MIDDLE OF NOVEMBER!!! (completely off topic, but bugs me, also)"
