• Bon Mots and Cheap Shots

    Teeth are extruded and bones are ground

    I wrote a really really great speech for my Toastmaster’s Club last night.  It was a speech contest and I’m generally golden for contests.  I have the presence and I tear it up.  It was called “One foot in the grave and another on a Banana Republic”.   It was a really good speech. I used to live in Santa Barbara.  Santa Barbara is a tough town to make it in.  There is incredible wealth down there.  When I lived there Streisand had a house there.  The Shah of Iran’s sister lived up on the hill.  David Nancarrow the founder of Carrow’s restaurants and owner of Sambo’s lived there.  We…

    Let’s just keep going

    The stupidest idea ever pushed forth came from Schwarzenegger. That is the “let the people decide”. 80% of the people are always ignorant. They won’t get off their asses to figure out why something happened.  Or why it matters.  They will act on their own insecurities which does not benefit the republic. Today I throw Governor Christie under the bus.  You are an ignorant buffoon elected by, thanks to Reagan, a now largely uneducated state. “He should just write a check and shut up,” said Mr. Christie Tuesday. “Really, and just contribute, OK? I mean, you know, the fact of the matter is that I’m tired of hearing about it.…

    Sounds like a whisper

    You know even I can’t make this shit up.  The Girl Scouts can’t meet at a Virginia church because of their connection to Planned Parenthood.  It’s not worth it to me to say “I told you so” but when the Good Lord comes these folks are going to be all puffed up and He’s going to say “What the hell were you thinking?”  Banning children from church, what an awesome idea.  That’s not to say that the Girl Scouts didn’t push back a little. I swear to God, I don’t make this up.  Here is my call on Santorum “misogynist sonofabitch”.  Followed by “stupid”. Speaking of misogynist sonofabitchs or stupid misogynist…

    I needed somewhere to hang my head without your noose

    I had an argument with a guy a couple of weeks ago over dog rescue.  It’s a subject a lot of people are very passionate about.  But like everything else, few can think outside of the box. My business coach made me brush my teeth with my non-dominant hand for a month.  It started with him saying “Brush your teeth with your left hand.”  Followed by “Dude, I do that every day”, which was kind of the lesson within the lesson.  Anyway, it really helps your thinking.  Drive home a different way every day.  Start in the grocery store on the right instead of the left aisle.  Whatever.  It’s good…

    We both know I’m not what you need

    We haven’t done Bon Mots and Cheap Shots in a while.  After five days on the road, it seems appropriate. Let’s start off with Delta Airlines.  Credit where credit is due.  They got those sonofabitches off the gate and in the air on time.  Set a watch by those guys.  Clear airplanes, delightful staff.  Smooth flight back to Orlando and relatively smooth home, even though I know that’s a function of the weather, I was expecting a rough flight home and it did not scare the crap out of me.  In spite of both flights home being over booked on the way home I had an empty seat next to…

    God is a bullet have mercy on us everyone

    Yesterday the United States Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit struck down the bullshit known as Prop 8.  The most telling quote to me in the whole thing was as follows: “Proposition 8 serves no purpose, and has no effect, other than to lessen the status and human dignity of gays and lesbians in California, an to officially reclassify their relationships and families as inferior to those of opposite-sex couples” Want to talk about wasting taxpayer resources?  How about the asshats that won’t stop with this piece of shit?  A true conservative should be outraged that this much time and effort has been wasted to dictate government involvement in…
