Kim du Toit
It seems to be a fact of life that when one spouse of an elderly couple dies, it’s not long before the other dies too. I haven’t looked up any actual stats for this — it’s purely an observation — but it seems that if it’s the wife that goes first, it doesn’t take long before the widower follows. It seems especially true if the couple is truly elderly — say, in their 70s or 80s, and I believe that spousal deaths “days after” (and sometimes even “hours after”) are almost a given once a couple has reached their 90s together.
I know exactly how they feel.
A blogger I’ve known since I started a blog myself. Much more prolific than myself and a better writer by far (in my opinion).
But one seeming difference, I started my blogging after losing my wife and he stopped blogging after losing his. Kim is only started writing again recently.
Being arrested in his efforts by the cruel severance of their shared journey in life by death; he has continued now with the meditations on loss and the awkwardness of trying to continue an existence that only made sense by being shared.
His pain is fresh, I grieve for him. I pray for him, if he doesn’t mind too much (he’s an atheist).
I believe that being loved by and loving someone till the end makes you stronger, firmer and not damaged. You will carry that persons love forever. You will never be alone.
The oddities of WordPress domain identification and logins prevent me from placing my words of condolence on Kim’s site directly, but I wish him peace and pray for his spirit.

CNN (all of them):
In other words, a closeted Trump supporter working deep inside hyper-liberal CNN just gave O’Keefe a ton of behind the scenes footage of “The Most Trusted Name In News.” My guess is we’re about to hear a bunch of establishment media puppets revealing their extreme hatred for the sitting President of the United States.
MTV News “senior political correspondent” Ana Marie Cox admitted this morning that she is taking part in the protests against President Donald Trump.
As I’ve said before, nothing wrong with the Second Amendment (doing fine, thank you); it’s the First Amendment that seriously broken. Continent wide news networks owed by a few wealthy people, all saying the same thing because the mouthpieces are highly coiffured and well dressed mannequins reading the words put before them.
The news (all media) is one of the three legs of control, along with government/union control of the schools and vote fraud that the progressives have used to establish control and subvert our country.
They claim to be the voice of the people but in truth they hate most of the citizens especially those with differing politics or beliefs and will reach down to any level to grind down the humblest member of society to spread their own dogma or protect their champions; ask George Zimmerman, ‘Joe the Plumber’, Monica Lewinsky, etc…

I swear that sometimes I think Scott Adams is detailing my career graphically. Except I have better hair and are taller.
I wish I had ever seen his show, everything I’ve read or heard about him impresses me.
The key to understanding the urgency of the actions of Sec.of State Tillerson come from the details of the costly anti-terror mission into Yemen.
“Initial reports are always wrong, but it doesn’t appear to be a failure of planning or intelligence,” said the former special forces officer.
Almost immediately, the raiding force on the ground took intense fire, according to the briefing paper and a senior military official. Occupants of the targeted house and its compound, along with their guard force, moved to a separate cluster of houses nearby where families, including women and children, were staying. Armed women fired on the U.S. and Emirati forces.
“There were a lot of female combatants who were part of this,” said Navy Capt. Jeff Davis, the Pentagon’s chief spokesman, on Monday. “We saw during this operation, as it was taking place, that female fighters ran to pre-established positions — as though they had trained to be ready, and trained to be combatants — and engaged with us.”
One Navy Seal died, three others were wounded.
While most know about the Yemen raid, most do not know about the dismissal of the three Awan brothers, Abid, Imran, and Jamal Awan. On February 2nd, they were abruptly removed from their positions of managing information technology for the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence.
The Awan brothers were hired by the Obama administration, and access to top secret information regarding military operations. The committees they allegedly worked for had access to “the most sensitive and secretive government intelligence, including covert anti-terrorism activity… including the Yemen operation”
One thing is for certain “Trying to nail down who the leakers are is like trying to count the cockroaches under the couch.” However, it seems most of the “leaks” are coming from Obama holdovers. Which makes Tillerson’s “cleaning house” look like not just the correct move, it leaves you wondering if he did enough cleaning house.
