Fresh Air!

Today is a stunning example of early spring, temperature in the 60s, blue sky and a touch of a breeze…I had to get out in it.

I thought about setting up my camera mount to document the trip, but I would probably bore even myself with a video like that. Plus, I was impatient to get further than the end of my driveway for the first time in over a month, so as you can imagine I was more than slightly eager to hit the road.

I just had the batteries swapped out in my chair for fresh ones with spring about to arrive and needed a couple of miles’ worth of a trip to make sure they were 100% reliable, too…I had a purpose!

It was glorious. I took the normal route most of the way to my favorite parking lot where I fly my aircraft and stopped at the smoke shop for some cigars. I saw more people today than I’ve seen for months…remember, my habit’s been to go at dawn when the wind’s calm so my lightweight R/C planes that weigh just an ounce or so don’t get tossed around, and I enjoy the peace and quiet of the neighborhood at that hour. But today I went in the early asfternoon, so there was traffic on the roads to watch for with everyone trying to get something done during their lunch hour.

Tell you what, the simple pleasure of not being cooped up on yet another pretty day was intoxicating. Healthy folks are spoiled rotten…in hindsight I know I was. I’m a garrulous sort to begin with, and I found that a lot of the people I encountered at the store were eager to talk to the odd crippled guy in the chair. This bodes well for my plan to be a visible promoter of Ron Paul’s campaign once I’m properly mobile again; I ended up talking with one gent for almost a half hour about all sorts of subjects.

Now imagine what I’ll be able to do once I’m out and accoutered with a Ron Paul T shirt, hat, and magnetic sign on my Element!

HAH…once I’m on the job, the Establishment is doomed, the poor chumps!

About Glenn Horowitz

I'm a 20 year civil courier pilot, retired by multiple sclerosis. From summer of 2011 until December 2013 my efforts went mostly to my first blog, Get Glenn Mobile, to raise the funds needed to convert my Honda Element for wheelchair access and end my virtual housebound confinement. This was realized just after Christmas 2013 when I was able to acquire a superb X-WAV Element, already modified for my use. Though the original goal wasn't met, what was raised, plus my Honda, plus the proceeds of the sale from my mother's car were enough to make it happen. It's an amazing story in itself! Now, after my release from homebound prison, I can augment the journalistic work I'm doing for the American Daily Herald by getting out in public, talking with people, perhaps even getting some media attention to explain why someone as disabled as I am knows these unfunded entitlement programs like Social Security and its 'disability insurance' are bogus and do more harm than good, and in fact why the whole welfare/warfare state is contrived to keep the gravy train rolling for those who benefit while they drain our resources and eat out our substance. Why 'public education' is really public INDOCTRINATION that's become a meat grinder destroying our youth and our future. Why the fiat currency foisted on us by the Federal Reserve for a hundred years has destroyed the dollar and will without doubt cause its collapse. On and on the list goes, and I want to talk with the world about these vital matters.
