Records

We are obsessed with breaking or setting new records in just about everything. Sports is the obvious choice for records, but we are starting to see the record for stupidest politician being taken from Andrew Johnson, impeached 19th century president. Trump gets the record, and I can’t imagine the American people ever again putting anContinue reading “Records”

You Cannot Be Serious!

To quote back-in-the-day bad boy tennis brat John McEnroe. At a time when many were put off by the entitled whiteboy, I liked him. Yes, he was a crybaby. Yes, he was an asshole. But when his serve and volley game was on, he was money. If I met him in a bar, I wouldContinue reading “You Cannot Be Serious!”

Give Me More

I cannot get enough videos of dogs riding skateboards and kicking their legs to keep it going. I could watch those all day. How about stories of getting payback to someone who really deserves it? Revenge, especially for the little guy or girl,  against great odds, is the best. And the more despicable the deservingContinue reading “Give Me More”

Fat People and Other Things.

Relax. I’m not shaming fat people. Hell, I used to be one myself. When I was working as a French chef, I weighed 280 pounds. And I wasn’t any taller. I got my fat honestly from being a raging alcoholic and eating French delicacies day and night. And any reasonable person might think I wouldContinue reading “Fat People and Other Things.”

Whaaaat?

Did I hear someone say the Ukrainians are taking back their land from their sloppy, unmotivated intruders? If ever there was a case of fucking up a war, BabyHead, Charlie Brown look-alike, Putin is a military course just waiting to be taught at West Point. On how NOT to wage  a military campaign. I takeContinue reading “Whaaaat?”

God Saved the Queen

Rest well, Queen Elizabeth II. The Queen of the United Kingdom has ascended to her rightful place among the pantheon of world leaders. No matter what was happening in this tumultuous world, the Queen was always there, as steady as a rock, representing the United Kingdom with class and grace. When a young American boy,Continue reading “God Saved the Queen”

Did it Ever Occur to You?

That there are brave policemen that are members of the Uvalde Police Department who were not there when that tragedy occurred? Testosterone-fueled law enforcement officers that knew the meaning of the “enforcement” part of the equation? They would have stormed through the door, without thinking of their own safety, brought down the wrath of God,Continue reading “Did it Ever Occur to You?”

On and Off Again

It is raining on and off again in southern Ohio, which is why it stays so green here. August 28 is the traditional end of the summer, and here it is rigidly adhered to. Like the space vehicle that sits idle on the launching pad. I read where a majority of Democrats do not wantContinue reading “On and Off Again”

A Great Day

What is your barometer for a good day? Temperature? That’s an easy one. I have great days that saw me literally climbing walls while sitting in a chair (thank you John Prine). There was five feet of snow on the ground, and it was ten below. But I had a great day. Where do weContinue reading “A Great Day”

Once They Smell Blood…

I’m talking about closers. It is the reason that I never became a billionaire. I have chronicled my time holding an NASD stock dealer’s license and my up and down career in that arena. The closers were the heartless, callous, rude, pushy assholes who were driving around BMW’s and Porsches, while I drove to workContinue reading “Once They Smell Blood…”
