    I’m the other white meat known as ‘Kid Funky Fried’

    This country has had better weeks.  And few worse. Oh how we cling to our  guns because they are going to protect us.  No one would be able to hurt us if we all had our assault rifles.  No one would be able to place a bomb at a public event and murder three people and maim hundreds more.  And if they did the gun owners could just mow them down with their awesome firepower. Yeah.  Didn’t happen. Well, if those same two shit stains got into a gun fight we could defend ourselves and shoot back and…didn’t happen. Your “Red Dawn” fantasy is laughable. ~Steve Marmel Why is no…

    Got two good eyes, but you still don’t see

    Well, you had to know which side of the fence I was going to fall on with this one.  But here goes. Black Friday is bullshit. Shopping on Thanksgiving for Christmas is bullshit Walmart is bullshit Target and Toys R Us?  Bullshit. When I lived in the City I used to enjoy going downtown early on Friday morning to see the new window displays.  Macy’s always outdid themselves, the SPCA was loading puppies into the windows at Gumps, and there was nothing like getting a cup of coffee and walking the quiet streets checking out what everyone had done.  I was generally out of there by about 9:30am before the…

    And this is crazy

    Two posts in two days?  You gotta know something is really pissing me off. Chevron. Complete asshats.  This is why Citizens United was total bullshit. We just got it up the ass here in the Bay Area to the tune of $4.90 per gallon.  And then we got it up the ass a second time when Chevron donated $2,500,000. to Romney’s campaign.  Total bullshit. As much as I would like to pick on Sheldon Adelson, the truth of the matter is he’s in the gaming business.  And people are stupid.  That’s why he’s so freaking rich.  I don’t have a problem with him participating in the political process.  I have…

    Millions of people living as foes

    You know, I’d leave this subject alone if it weren’t so important.  Or if it was the drum I’ve been pounding on for the last four years. I’ve said for 20 years that the title industry needed to unionize.  Now I know OTG just regurgitated, but before you projectile vomit, consider this; if the industry was unionized the jobs wouldn’t have been shipped to India.  And we’d all be in pretty decent shape right now.  It’s not like the title companies have less work, they don’t.  It’s different work.  Probably more work. Now riddle me this kittens, if you were making $127k per year would everything be peachy keen in…

    And the preacher he did start to glow

    We haven’t had a link dump/rant/cheapshot lagniappe in a while.  Let’s go! First, I have a couple of votes for worst person in the world.  Or in our first case, most disgusting excuse for an human being and certainly not a Christian on any level goes to the asshats at Westboro Baptist Church, and we use the term “church” very very loosely.  These people are the devil walking the earth.  Period. Next up, let’s take a few minutes to talk about CEO compensation.  You know I check out everything I’m sent.  I was sent a chart saying CEO’s are making 475 times what the average production worker makes.  That is…

    There will be no highlights on the eleven o’clock news

    httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rGaRtqrlGy8 Interesting.  Depending on how long you’ve been reading PBE, you’ve seen <insert your years of participation here> years of me bitching about corporations beholden to their Wall Street gods.  Looks like somebody else gets it. Now I’m not a big fan of Anonymous.  However, 700 arrests is nothing to sneeze about.  Neither is the fact that the progressives and the teabaggers actually agree on this issue.  Wall Street has too much power in America and some people have finally figured that out. JP Morgan Chase donated $4.6 million dollars to the NYPD to…break heads?  What was that for?  To protect their interests?  That is the most suspicious act in…

    The mirror speaks, the reflection lies

    These guys are agents at the Cult of Red. Huge producers who go around the country teaching others how to succeed in the short sale market. We had a deal in our office last year where Chase wouldn’t work with the owner or agent on the short sale, the buyer finally walked and the homeowner said “Screw it”, walked away and moved to Texas. SIX MONTHS LATER Chase sends the homeowner in Texas a letter saying they will pay him $30,000 to short sale his house. He calls back his agent at the Cult of Red and sonofabitch if they don’t short sell the house and the homeowner gets $30,000.…

    Thibodeaux, fontaineaux, the place is buzzin’

    Jack Assery, party of one, your table is ready. OK, I know.  blahblahblah. Thieves.  These thieves are lucky.  I don’t know that I would have been able to restrain my desire to fire off rounds at them if I’d been home. These little d-bags stole my catalytic converter.  They unbolted it at the back but then used a pipe cutter to cut my goddamned header because the front bolts were seized.  I want to shoot them all.  I was out of town at The Cult of Red’s Family Reunion (an amazing event that makes me proud to be affiliated with them) when this happened and my dogs were in their…

    Sippin’ on gin and juice, laid back with my mind on my money and my money on my mind

    Part of me says “Why can’t you be a kinder gentler Wine Dog?”  The other part says RAGE ON! Just in case you missed my rage on Chase.  Read this for background. OK, now that you’re up to date, it’s time for a follow up post.  I’m sure there will be more on this one.  On October 4th, I sent a HAFA package to Chase.  On FEBRUARY 7th I received the following email: Good morning, I’m the negotiator for this file and the investor is countering this offer to 120K.  If you all accept this counter offer, I will need a signed addendum by all parties no later than Wednesday. …

    All I’ve got, I had to steal

    The wine industry has no idea what they’re in for.  I know.  I’ve been preaching the gospel to deaf ears.  I will find no solace in a “I told you so”.  Wine will be changed forever and not in a good way. Wine Enthusiast just awarded Bill Foley Man of the Year.  My personal disappointment in this decision runs so deep it’s palpable. OK the fact that Wine Enthusiast thought that calling him “humble as he is an established leader” makes me want to vomit. Foley is raiding the wine industry just like he raided Carl’s Jr. way back when and the title industry in the mid 80’s.  Consider this,…
