Must have a code that you can live by

For every cause there is an effect.  The Turtle is struggling with that right now.  You let hate flourish and you end up with Donald Trump.  Melania is upset that her husband is being compared to Hitler?  “He wants to help America.  He wants to unite people”  She doesn’t get it.  He didn’t start out killing Jews.  He started out blaming Jews for what was wrong with Germany.  And that united Germany.  Now do you get it?  Oh well it was worth a shot.

More cause and effect.  We have a particularly selfish streak in our society right now.  We don’t compromise, we want what we want and the hell with the rest of you.  You know, the guy in traffic that shoots all the way to the front even though there’s a big freaking fire engine blocking off two lanes for a huge accident, just to pick up a few car lengths when he merges at the last minute?  Or shoots up the Fastrak lane only to switch out because he doesn’t have a Fastrak?  And jacks up the whole traffic flow?  But that’s what he needs right now and the hell with the rest of us.

I had a perfect example of this last Sunday night.  We managed to get great spots at the Fillmore for the Acoustic for a Cure concert.  James Hetfield, Sammy Hagar, Joe Satriani, Melissa Etheridge, John Mayer, Tommy Lee and Pat Monahan.  It was the floor and there was no seating.  This dude about halfway through the show pushed in front of me and just stood there.  He was slightly taller than me and blocked me out.  I said “Keep moving dude.”  He just stood there.  I repeated a little louder “Keep moving dude”.  And I wasn’t the only one.  He says “Wow, not a very friendly crowd”.  Dude, we’re plenty friendly when you’re not a douchebag.  Here’s the deal, you act like an ass and get bent when we call you on it.  You self entitled little prick.  Check yourself.  And do us all a favor, if you can’t, wreck yourself.

Yesterday in traffic, little douchebag, plenty of places to merge.  Not this self entitled little jerk off.  He waits to the very front and jacks up traffic at the 580 split.  Then he gives the driver who let him in a little wave like “Hey thanks”.  Jerkoff.  The thing is, little douchebag, what if someone behind me doesn’t notice that you’ve stopped traffic because you think you’re better than everyone else?  What if I get rear ended?  Wouldn’t be the first time that scenario ended like that.  And now I’m hurt because you think you’re better than the rest of us.  You put me in harms way for a couple of car lengths.  You suck and should just go die.

PEOPLE!  Listen up!  You are part of a society.  Act civilized.  Be considerate.  Check yourself before your wreck yourself.  Don’t make me quote Ice Cube.  Dammit!



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 as a country have legislated that elections occur.  Gerrymandered?  Hell yes.  But it’s an even playing field.  Everyone has to follow the same convoluted jacked up rules.  Even Bernie.  The independent Senator from Vermont.  So run a clean campaign.  We all Feel the Bern.  And I for one am happy for what you are accomplishing, but when the nominee is chosen, get in line.  Because if you don’t you’re going to be building the greatest wall the world has ever seen.

Now for The Donald.  Dear Republicans, Whiskey Tango Foxtrot?  This is what you bring us?  An over inflated orange tinted combed over buffoon?  Are you all stupid?  Did you know that if The Donald had taken all of the money he inherited from Daddy and put it in a mutual fund, he’d be twice as wealthy as he is today.  Repeat.  Money he inherited from Daddy.  Lost a lot of it.  And he’s such a great businessman?  He’s an empty suit.  When was the last time they ran out some elitist Daddy’s boy?  What happened?  Oh yeah, 9-11.  And then we invaded the wrong country.  In seven years he couldn’t find a 6’5″ Arab in the desert with a kidney dialysis machine and an entourage.  Obama shut that shit down pretty quickly didn’t he?  Shall we talk about the mess that Arnold made of California?  He “leveraged” everything and almost buried the entire state.  He nearly destroyed the 5th largest economy in the world.  So much that we aren’t in the top five any more.  So I have to ask the Republicans one more time Whiskey Tango Foxtrot?
