Mad Jack Hanks: Tales From The O-NO Ranch 3-18-13

What the heck, dear hearts and gentle readers, what the hay? I'm havin' some problems seeing my way clearly with some of what is going on in today's world.

Dennis Rodman goes to North Korea to be friends with little "whoever?" Is he our new and latest ambassador to the far east? What the? I should admit that I lost a fortune when I invested heavily in Dennis' School of Charm and Good Looks! Oh well.

A feller lays down on his bed in Florida to take a nap and falls through the gates of hades when the earth swallows him and his bed up and they couldn't find him! That's hard to swallow.

Jane Fonda is voted one of the most admired women in America. Are you kidding me? What gives?

Is all of this real? It is dear friends. It's the world we live in today. It's what is happening to you and me and if you are like me your head is spinning around so fast at times you think it just might explode.

All of the reality shows on my "telly," in my opinion, are scripted, right? Of course. The camera man is right there to record each and every facial expression and every word uttered. In "Moonshiners," "Lizard Lick Towing," "Hard Core Pawn" and every other reality show, is produced in such a way as to suck us in and make us believe all of what we see is really real. Really? There is one exception that I watched last night and that was a reality show about rescue "choppers" and their crew of brave soldiers that go into the war zone to take out the wounded. There is no acting there. The fear, the twitching jaws, the nervous blinks and at times utter confusion is real. It's hard to see for real our wounded men and women being loaded up and hauled out to saftey. They spare nothing. There is absolutely nothing left to the imagination. It's rough to watch but it's real. It's what's happening and I will be so glad when we bring all of our troops home from those regions of the world.
