Bon Mots and Cheap Shots,  Rant

Don’t need a weatherman to know which way the wind blows

You missed me.  I know it.  And I’m sorry.  Training for the AIDS/Lifecycle is all consuming.  So is selling real estate.

I had that terrible head cold/virus/flu thing that I got in Dallas.  I would venture it was the sickest I’ve been since I had mono in 1980.  Even the pancreatitis wasn’t as bad as that bug.  The problem is I missed five weeks of critical training time.  February and March are when you build your base.  I didn’t so I’m riding with no base and praying to God that years of being in pretty decent shape will carry me.

I’m also months behind in the my fundraising so please click through here and give me some love.  Thanks.

I had my best month ever business wise in March.  There are agents out there that don’t sell in a year what I sold in March.  I actually made the national average for Realtors in March.  More importantly I was the top producer in the office for the month of March.  Now I have to go and do it 12 more times.  Yep.  I know what I’m doing.

Today is the day.  I used to like Ted Nugent before he lost his mind.  But he did.  And today is the day he said he would be dead or in jail if Obama was re-elected.  Bring it Mr. Poopypants.

Every now and then I turn on Faux News.  Yesterday was a good day to do it.  In case you didn’t know, the Boston Marathon bombing was done by Islamic jihadists.  Case solved let’s move along, nothing to see.  Thankfully we have Alex Jones to tell us who really did it.  The Government.  If the Government was really doing what Alex Jones says they are doing, he would be vaporized by now.  That’s how stupid he is and that’s how stupid his followers are.  They are Jonestown Kool-aid stupid.

I do not understand why the web version of Fox News isn’t quite as wacky as the television version, although it’s wacky for sure.  I’m going to link to the Huff Post on this one, same story, it’s an AP story.  Don’t want Faux News to get the clicks.  The Unabomber.  Not a Islamic jihadist.  An anti-industrialist.  Eric Robert Rudolph.  Not a jihadist, anti-gay and anti-abortionist.  Timothy McVeigh and Terry Nichols.  Not Islamic jihadists, just pissed off about the Branch Davidians.  One dumb ass trying to light his shoes on fire and we are all taking our shoes off for TSA.  There’s your Islamic fundamentalist.  A Pakistani tried to blow up Times Square but we’re still dancing with that country.  The bulk of these are put together by homegrowns.  Domestic terrorists.  White supremacists.  Whack jobs.  Dare I??? SAY IT!  Right wing extremists.  That’s not to say that the Weather Underground didn’t blow up their share of shit.  Over 40 years ago.  Question everything.

Right now the lack of “chatter” leads me to believe that this is a lone gunman type who probably figured out how to build a pressure cooker bomb on the internet or in theatre.  Because we’re taking such good care of our vets with PTSD I’m sure not one of them lost their bearings and did something like this.  Now is when we should talk about Timothy McVeigh’s military service…right?  It could be some fringe Islamic jihadist, but I don’t think the big boys know about him or they would be singing praises to their war god.  And they aren’t.  That to me is pretty telling.

Whatever it turns out to be, the sad thing is that this is what our world has become.  We have to report abandoned packages or get blown up.  We have to always be looking over our shoulder and we have to know what to do in the event of a catastrophe.  It’s the world we have created and the world we live in.
