    The drug of a nation

    Let’s have a fish fry today. Interesting list of the most influential US winemakers.   I’ve met six of them.  Five of the six are in the top 20.  Three in the top three.  Kind of a charmed life I lead. Not so fast buck-o. What the hell is that you ask? Here’s a hint.   I tried to take a photograph so I could blow it up and see what it was.  Some strange bug on the door jam in my bedroom.  At 10pm at night.  My brain had been shut down for a couple of hours by then.  Well, it’s a black legged deer tick.  And that bite.…

    Drinking some and gambling, and tying up loose ends

    Before you decide to have absolute faith in our justice system, consider this. I got run over by a truck that is the Alameda County Superior Court. On September 15, 2012 I got a ticket for not having a copy of my current insurance in the car.  Coincidentally and by happenstance, my insurance rolls on the 15th of September.  I receive the courtesy notice in the mail and make a copy of my new insurance card and pay the $25 dollar fine for not having it in the car.  Why wasn’t it in the car?  I run about six weeks behind in reading my personal mail.  I try and pull…

    I feel that blood that pumps in beat

    Oh. My.  God.  The Right Wing has their panties in a twist over the Zimmerman case.  Why Zimmerman’s Great-Grand whatever was black they whine.  And where is the justice for this Marine? Just wait one minute there Buck-o.  Stop.  Rewind.  Play.  This was not a random racially motivated crime.  The victim and one of the suspects were friends.  The victim was invited to the party where he got hammered and was kicked out.  Then he sent a text message that lead to a parking lot fight that he started.  And it went to far.  And instead of calling an ambulance, they left him out there.  Because no one has ever…

    Bitch, you better run a check

    I could go on and on about the trial down in Florida, but it’s in Florida.  And that State is just full of idiots.  Hanging Chad?  Check.  Safe haven for OJ until he beat up some guy in Vegas?  Check.  And now they unapologetically tell a young black man’s family that he got what he deserved for walking home in the rain with a hood up over his head. Here’s where we go off the reservation.  I think the jury got it right.  According to Florida law.  Thank the NRA for this one.  Wha?  Yep.  Here is a great article from the former Miami Police Chief.  He blames Florida law.…

    I’m not part of a redneck agenda

    I can’t leave this one alone.  I tried.  I can’t do it.  Neither could this guy. Who are all of these complete jackasses supporting Paula Deen?  Who are you people?  Let me help.  A bunch of ignorant racist assholes.  That’s who.  Read this and tell me this is  acceptable workplace behavior.  I defy you.  It’s impossible.  How would you like to work for her drunken brother who brought porn to work?  And kissed you and called you a “little Jew girl”?  You see, she said these things to a white woman because she thought it was ok.  It wasn’t.  So STFU all you Walmart shopping, NASCAR watching, diabetes cases.  Just…
