    I felt a little like a dying clown

    There is always more to the story than we know. The Gulf of Tonkin, it’s the alleged attack on a US warship by the Viet Cong which was the impetus for the escalation of US involvement in Viet Nam. Didn’t happen. Hyperbole. Watch the Fog of War where Robert McNamara openly says it didn’t happen. He now believes it was an “over excited radioman” who got it wrong. 33,000 Americans died, countless Vietnamese and who knows how many are just damaged still. A friend’s brother served. He became convinced that the Doctors were going to do unspeakable things to him and would not go to a Doctor. He died of…

    One trick is all that horse can do

    He’s a one-trick ponyOne trick is all that horse can doHe does, one trick onlyIt’s the principal source of his revenueBut when he steps into the spotlightYou can feel the heat of his heartCome rising through Don’t like the trade deal with China? Threaten them with tariffs. Get them to the table. Give our farmers a $16 billion bail out. Fly to Florida and play golf, it’s just money anyway. After all only liberals put solar panels on their houses. Right? I’m sure that’s what Sean Hannity told him in their late night bromance calls. Don’t like NAFTA? Threaten everyone with tariffs. The Canadians won’t fight back. That’s what Sean…

    Take my tears and that’s not nearly all

    I’m not sure when reason left us. I always joke that I am a Libra and that makes me wishy washy. Actually Libras are based in justice and balance. There are only a few things that I can’t see both sides of. Child and animal abuse. Thievery. That’s about it. I actually understand while someone is racist or bigoted. I don’t respect it, but I understand that they are not accepting responsibility for their shortcomings and have chosen to vilify someone else’s race, ethnicity or culture to make themselves feel better. It’s strange to me, it worked with the Dixiecrats and it’s working now. When I was a kid we…

    Send me away with the words of a love song

    At the end of 2016 everyone was complaining about what a crap year it was.  Well, I’d take 2016 back in a heartbeat right now. Two days ago I had to put Rita to sleep.  It was one of the five worst days of my life.  The day I lost my father.  The day I lost Xica.  The day I lost Beauregard and the day I lost Rita. My life is not the same.  She was a huge personality that permeated everything that happened at the Farm. Nine years and one week.  That’s how long Rita was in my life.  Slightly more if you count back to when I originally…

    You’re king in a fool’s paradise

    It’s time for me to just totally lose my shit. Dear Republicans, You seething pile of rubbish!  You are a bunch of idiots.  You say less government but want to legislate bathrooms and abortions and gay marriage and make up shit that just doesn’t matter.  Like there is no such thing as an abortion in the 9th month, but you candidate is such a freaking moron that he thinks there is.  And you stupid shits listen to him and his ilk.  You deserve each other.  You’re heading to a civil war within your party and it couldn’t happen to a nicer bunch of ignorant inbred backwoods pig humpers. Here’s the deal,…

    So I’m begging you please man, don’t call the policeman

    And now, something horrible happened in Dallas.  I have to say, it was just a matter of time. This little gem was taken from a post when Eric Garner was killed back in 2014: Here’s the deal and I’ve been talking about this for months.  Everyone talks about how few Realtors are actually good at their jobs.  About 10% will really rock your world.  Another 10-15% can do a decent job.  The next 60% are just average.  They don’t do anything amazing but they don’t screw up fantastically either.  The last 20% are thieves, liars and cheats.  Completely incompetent.  Think about the field you’re in.  The same thing is true.…

    Dear Voters

    In particular Bernie Sanders supporters.  And really anyone who is thinking like Susan Sarandon is right now.  Bernie is running for the Democratic Party nomination.  He is not running for the Green Party nomination, the Independent party nomination or any other nomination.  He is running for the Democratic Party nomination.  If he does not win, which as of right now is a real possibility, although Hillz is certainly not a shoo-in right now, the people who have registered Democrat need to step in line and support the party nomination.  Period.  Not behave like petulant children Susan.  I’m not thrilled with this process but this is the process by which we…

    Please forgive me, for having straight hair

    There is so much to rant about right now, it’s hard to know where to start. So let’s just talk about the fact that any moron who has voted or is about to vote for Donald Trump. Dear Moron, you are stupid.  Extremely stupid.  I know, you think the politicians are the problem, so bring in an outsider.  Well, that would make sense if there was something amounting to a backroom deal going on in this country.  But there isn’t.  There’s Mr. Turtlehead standing there saying that the American people should have a say in who picks the new Supreme Court justice.  Dear Mr. Turtlehead, they did have a say when…

    I like to dip and I like to spit

    Don’t you worry your pretty little heads.  I’m still here and I’m still pissed. I am particularly pissed at anyone who thinks that Donald Trump, Ben Carson or Jeb Bush would make a good President.  They won’t.  They suck.  And you are an idiot if you think that any of these guys could be President. Trump has the most potential, if he weren’t a racist loose cannon.  At what point does he say “Some of my best friends are Mexican?”  That’s not what this country needs. Jeb Bush?  Because W did such a great job?  I love how the Bush’s are trying to rewrite history.  Sorry.  We were here.  Your…

    So make lots of noise

      Bruce/Caitlyn Jenner.  Why do we care?  Seriously.  I’m not married to either one of them.  Who gives a shit? Rachel Dolezal.  A little more interesting.  She’s not black enough because she’s white.  She’s too black because she’s white.  She is checking the wrong box on her Census form?  I guess.  It’s not like there isn’t a whole bunch of people out there living out their fantasies as someone who they aren’t or maybe someone they became.  It’s just that Jenner can go to the best Doctors in America and go through gender reassignment.  I don’t think you can go through race reassignment so Rachel, we’ve got a problem. And…
