I drafted a ‘Letter to the Editor’ of the Desert Sun about legal and illegal immigrants, but I didn’t mail it.
No matter where an immigrant comes from, no matter if he or she is legal or illegal, our country allows them to demonstrate and protest, as long as they remain peaceful.
What is not allowed, desired or legal, is the waving of any foreign flag on the soil of this country. No country in the world would close an eye and allow an American to march through their streets waving “ Old Glory”.
Why then, should it be allowed here? If I lived in Moscow, London, Cairo, Paris, Tehran , etc., and marched through their streets protesting an infraction of my human or civil rights and waving “ Stars and Stripes”, I know for a fact, I would be arrested and thrown in one of their inhuman dungeons The trial would be a farce and I would either spend years in that dark dungeon or they would throw me out of their country and maybe even exchange me for a couple of Yankee dollars?
Protest is O.K. and desired here, but respect for our fading American ideals and principles should be respected!

I am really fanatic about being a recycler. I am what I call myself a 3D, which is, dumpster - diving - dummy! Right now I have six large garbage bags filled with plastic water and pop bottles, naturally all are empty and two large bags of crushed aluminum cans. The recycling center behind Ralph’s is closed because of sickness, so I will just keep collecting and storing everything on my back patio.

The unwanted drug dealer and possible pedophile(?) Living in our park was finally evicted by the Sheriff today. Good riddance! I believe he resided for a long time at 174 Caravan. It took the authorities over four years to get rid of this scumbag.

WWII ended in Europe 61 years ago today. Who cares? Hardly anyone still remembers what those 16 million Americans did. I am one of the very few.

Lately, the media here has or is trying to drive the fear of God into us about “The Big One”. They are talking about the earthquake that will destroy everything in its path. Not a day goes by without some kind of warning from these idiots. SO! I am s cared too from their continual bull shit. Every little vibration, like when a big truck drives by, I find myself jumping.
What can I do about such an earthquake? Nothing, no, I could jump into the closet and pray.
Iran is the new ‘Nazi Reich’ in the Middle East and is beginning to cause more problems than it is worth. If George W. Manages to achieve some kind of peace in the Middle East, specifically in Iraq, then he will probably turn his attention on the oil in Iran? About this, we will only have to worry for another 975 days and then he and his oil smelling crony friends will be history.

A typical day in the life of a nobody, me! I go to bed no later than 9 PM. I then get up around 4:15 AM. I make my breakfast and read the morning newspaper ( The Desert Sun), which isn’t much better than the Alpena News which my grandpa use to call his ‘soap wrapper’. I then go to work from 6 AM to 2 PM. After work, I go through the waste cans at work and then the dumpster in our park. I then crush the cans and pack the plastic bottles in big bags. After that I try to work some on my remodeling project. At about 6 PM, I sort of called it quits. I made my dinner, washed the dishes, made my lunch for the next went go to bed. At 9 PM. I usually am able to sleep like a log in the forest.
979 days remaining with King George I.

Today is all but forgotten by my countrymen? 62 years ago, Americans and their allies landed on several beaches in France. It was called ‘D’ Day. Some 3,000 Americans were killed or wounded on this day. Today is seems nobody cares? What a shame!

Today is Father’s Day, Hog wash! Who did I father? My son died 41 years ago as a result of my wife’s forced miscarriage. My daughter(?) Heike Irene. If she isn't mine, Then I can understand why she doesn't want to have anything to do with me. So why should I get excited about today, not me!

I drove down or over to the ’River’ shopping center and had a hamburger at Johnny Rockets. Then I went and saw the documentary film “ An Inconvenient Truth” President Al Gore was the narrator. He put forward the end of this planet. I read his book about ten years ago and I have to say that he is 100% right. If we don’t do something soon, Glabal Warming will destroy us as sure I am sitting here. The trouble is, most Americans are too ignorant and really don’t care. I hope the end comes after I have left this planet?

This will be the last entry in this journal notebook. It is volumn and covers my life from August 24, 2004 to now on 196 pages. I have left a lot of personal shit out because a lot of it is really of no interest to anybody.
This last month I have collected and crushed 1409 alu cans and about the same amount in plastic bottles. I cashed in part of what I have stored on the back patio and got $67, which goes right into my ‘piggy bank’.
Why should I worry about Global Warming? I don’t have a family who care.
Everyone in America only thinks of themselves and their own comfort. The normal American will not change. We are a nation of the path of total self destruction. If I ever get the chance, I want to return to Germany where I belong and live out my life there!
THE END OF THE WORLD WILL BE SOONER THAN MOST THINK AND BELIEVE!
Yours truly, Peter M. Olsen
