Space Fillers

 Space Fillers

By BR Chitwood


Today, with knowledge redoubling incredibly fast after Sputnik1 soared upward in October, 1957, to a ‘punctuation point’ status in Space Exploration, our World’s brain power geared up for some historic competition among the elite nations, creating an intellectual atmosphere that was swift in giving birth to new technologies, new political problems, promises, and diminishing returns for many nations.

The scary part of progress, the intellectual geniuses of that lofty world of Cyberspace create some fun tools for living and comfort, some industrial items that bring speedy delivery of products and information, bring more time for leisure, and, for those ultra-wealthy cyber experts, super wealth and influence over our lives, our political policies, and our societal lives – which, all too often, lead to crime and violence.

Purposely not mentioning Covid-19, the scourge of our century, killing tens of thousands of our citizens, we now must watch riots in our cities, stores looted at will by Oligarch-minded criminals, state governments being taken over by politicians who know little or nothing about managing, or, following the historical guidelines of our state laws.

Perhaps the scariest of these insane actions is ‘how we are to be teaching our children’ in Elementary Schools – ‘Cancel Culture’, ‘Gender/Trans & Cis’… et al. For me, this is close to moronic administration to be feeding our youth with this kind of curriculum.

Sorry if I offend anyone…

I’ve climbed the toughest part of my assigned hill. I’m on my way down the other side. Aware that my words have little or no meaning, but I proudly write them here and hope that they might reach the eyes of those who believe in our Deity, our history, our freedom and liberty, and all those who sacrificed their lives for this greatest country on Earth.

Author: Website: - B R Chitwood - My Mission: Writing to Discover Me

I'm a young man in an old man's body, trying to catch up to myself, trying to find pieces of me I left back in a disconnected youth and the early years of manhood. I'm a stereotype of many in my generation who can play the 'blame game', yell 'foul', and 'let's start over'. But, we are what we are, the sum of all the scary kid-emotions we experienced, the gin mills and piano bars that became our sandboxes of pleasure - lotus eaters of the best (or, worst) kind, the love affairs that did not quite settle us down, the sad poetry and songs written in bars and motels along the way... A Dreamer! A Wanderlust! The world needs such fools as we to write our books, our poetry, our songs, to offset the madness that plagues the soul. I've written fourteen books, over three hundred blog posts, in search of those pieces left somewhere in many parts of the globe. You can preview my books on the next page. There's even a Blog page...all my posts are not showing on this recently created blog page, but, if you want to read more, go to my official blog site and check out the archives: http://www.thefinalcurtain1 Writing for me is therapy for the soul.

  1. It is sad that so many hate their country and want it to dissolve into the kind of place Lenin would feel at home. There is way too much government dictating how we should live for my taste. Good post, Billy Ray.

  2. For those of us who have lived through several wars, cultural turmoil, and ups and downs of the economy, this current upheaval is the most perplexing and disturbing. Hang in there, Billy Ray. It’s going to be a bumpy ride. 😊
