This blog is dedicated to my good friend Paul R. All of our crazy friends and of course my wife and I went on our first camp out of the season to our favorite coastal hangout. Four nights sitting around the campfire and engaging in a few adult beverages, seems to bring out the best in people. I’m not sure why they don’t implement this technique in so called “think tanks”. I’m sure that many more monumental ideas and inventions would be the result. For instance, my friend Gary started knocking his beer over after about three hours and getting dirt in the bottle, I simply took out my pocket knife and cut a chunk out of his tee shirt and put it over the top of the bottle with a rubber band. Kept the dirt out, and the could still drink it as it filtered out the dirt already in the bottle.

So, in one of our in depth conversations, my friend Paul, who reads all of my blogs, asks a very important question….He asked “who is they”? He went on to say that almost every bad thing that happens in this world is a result of what “they” did. People are always quick to say “they are responsible for this”. It just never occurred to me how utterly horrible “they are”. So, I thought in the interest of public awareness, I will attempt to list a few of the things “they” are responsible for.

  1. I went to the market to buy my favorite treats I enjoyed as a youngster. The store owner said, they quit making them years ago. Well damn, they didn’t ask me.
  2. It’s amazing how much power they have, I really liked Oldsmobile cars. They quit making them. Did they ask anyone first?
  3. They don’t make dishwashers like they used to, even President Trump said so. Why doesn’t the President do something, so they will make them better? Seems reasonable to me.
  4. They are putting stuff like cereal and chips in smaller packages and charging us more. Who said they could do that? Can’t they do something about this?
  5. They say the climate is changing and they need to restrict our activities. I think they are wrong, but I can’t find a phone number or an address. I don’t know where they are.
  6. A few years ago, they thought it would be a good idea to paint firetrucks yellow. Apparently it didn’t work out because they are painting them red again. They were wrong.
  7. They keep raising our property taxes. Why can’t they be voted out of office?
  8. If that isn’t bad enough they raise gasoline prices every summer when we are taking our vacations. They are heartless creeps.
  9. You hear people say all the time, they are making it harder for us to get ahead. They must hate us.
  10. They need to be brought before congress for all of the bad stuff they are causing. But, I don’t think they will do it.

So I am asking for your help, in finding out who they are. I’m tired of all grief they are causing everyone. If anybody has any clue, or inside information, let me know, and we will mount a search and destroy campaign so they can’t keep spreading misery. We have another camp out planned soon, so be on the lookout for more mind boggling revelations.
