Life hurts

First I am sorry for this post, I needed to get this off my chest and didn't know of another place where I am anonymous enough to not warrant friends and family trying to talk. Sometimes strangers are more comforting. So thank you ahead of time for being the people that I feel comfortable talking to.

Life is hard, life moves fast, life doesn't take prisoners. It is cold, calculating and knows no mercy. It is nothing but a set of events that happen because of choices you make. Recompense must be paid, your ledger must be balanced and karma really is a bitch.

As my marriage is breaking up, and my wife is moving on and out... I find myself becoming more reflective. Who knew, that for someone who thought they were preparing for the end of the world, matters of the heart were just as bad if not worse than a collapse of society. That there really are no guards, or protections that seem to fit the situation. Those amazing highs when falling in love, getting married, having children, and just being around your soulmate are such a double edged sword... for when that one decides its time, it makes the lows seem all the worse.

Trailer / Tiny Living

My Family and I have just purchased a travel trailer and we are fixing it up now so that we can live in it. At the same time we are looking for a place to park it. I am finding that it is very difficult to find a place to park a camper full time and not pay out of the nose. Mobile home parks around Richmond VA are prohibited from allowing campers to rent a lot space. Most campgrounds are not open year round, and those that are charge over $600 a month!

Marriage of newlyweds, ages 96 and 95, questioned

ALEXANDRIA, Va. (AP) — In some ways, Rebecca Wright doesn't understand all the fuss over her 96-year-old mother's recent marriage. After all, she says, "Anybody who wants to get married must have a little dementia."

The courts, though, and some of Wright's other relatives aren't amused. And the future for newlyweds Edith Hill, 96, and Eddie Harrison, 95, is very much uncertain.

The Rutherford Institute is challenging two facets of the Virginia election law: one requires the (D) and (R) to have the lead spots on the ballot, the other requires a certain number of signatures before a third party can be on the ballot. If this is successful, they may carry it over to other states.The lawsuit was filed on behalf of the Libertarian Party of Virginia, several Libertarian Party candidates and an independent (non-party) candidate for public office in the November 2014 general election.

John Whitehead describes the reasoning behind the suit:

Police Arrest Paraplegic Man For Considering Himself a Pedestrian

So much of this lately the stories are running together.

A male officer ordered him to stand up, Dodson recalled. “I said, ‘I can’t stand up. That’s why I’m in this wheelchair.’”

A second officer literally slammed the paralyzed man face-first on the ground and handcuffed him behind his back, the Roanoke Times reported.

Mr. Dodson was charged with driving the wrong way, disorderly conduct, and resisting arrest. He was taken to jail on a stretcher and his scooter was impounded. His bond was set at $1,000.
