• Bush is a Moron,  Corporate Wankers

    Missing the point on immigration

    The right wing of this country is spending oodles of time and money beefing up the border patrols and immigration sweeps and building a freaking ridiculous wall to keep the Mexicans from crossing the borders and taking jobs away from Americans. Except that ship has sailed and the jobs have been already taken away from Americans. Not by Mexicans and Guatemalans and Central Americans swimming across the Rio Grande, but by corporate wankers outsourcing our jobs to India and the Philippines and Pakistan. Not one Guatemalan walked across the Arizona desert to become a title officer for six dollars an hour. Plenty of engineers in India have stayed home and…

    Bon Mots and Cheap Shots

    With a nod to Herb Caen: This is not how you support the troops!This morning I’m driving down Treat en route to my morning workout. As I turn onto Treat this guy behind me is totally up my ass. Strangely, I’m driving the speed limit, it’s 5:30 in the morning. One guy driving a mini-van and he guns it and goes around me and speeds off down Treat at least 60 mph in a 40 mph zone. As he whizzes by I see the “Support our Troops” yellow ribbon. Now where I come from, wasting gas because you’re a selfish bastard so my friend’s sons can risk their lives in…

    Danger -Rant Ahead

    Some poor schmuck made the assertation that AB 1634, which is the mandatory spay neuter bill in the State of California was the fault of the Democrats and their big government mentality and that the Republicans are all for personal responsibilty. So away I went: What a steaming pile of horse crap. It’s not about big government, it’s about issues. Turn off Fox. If there weren’t thousands of dogs being picked up by the dog catchers, if there weren’t numerous cases of dog maulings by intact animals, this wouldn’t be an issue. San Francisco has had two high profile maulings in the last few years. One was the lacrosse coach,…

  • It's all Reagan's fault

    Bon mots and cheap shots

    Last night I had dinner with two old Title Officer friends of mine. I can’t believe I’ve been doing this stuff for 30 years. I can’t believe I’m turning 49 this year. How did I get this old? I understand when I stand up. My knees and hips creak horribly, but my mind is that of a teenager. Anyway, my friends are young at heart as well and be bitched about the business and how it is not what it was. How the kids coming up now don’t know how to search a piece of property. If it’s not in the computer, they’re like a fish out of water. We…
