Please forgive me, for having straight hair

There is so much to rant about right now, it’s hard to know where to start.

So let’s just talk about the fact that any moron who has voted or is about to vote for Donald Trump.

Dear Moron, you are stupid.  Extremely stupid.  I know, you think the politicians are the problem, so bring in an outsider.  Well, that would make sense if there was something amounting to a backroom deal going on in this country.  But there isn’t.  There’s Mr. Turtlehead standing there saying that the American people should have a say in who picks the new Supreme Court justice.  Dear Mr. Turtlehead, they did have a say when they elected Barack Obama to be President.  Twice.  Idiot.

What’s amazing to me is that anyone on the planet thinks this is okay.  It’s not.  It’s holding the government hostage, just like the shut downs just like all of the other crap the “politicians” have been doing.  And by “politicians” I mean Republicans.  These guys, yes, they need to go.  Mr. Turtlehead needs to be done with.  And Kentucky should be embarrassed for what they’ve done to our country.

Let’s move on to making our country great again.  How great Mr. Trump?  Great like we were in 2008?  Good times eh?

And this.

Here it is all broken down for you.

Peace.  Out.

And nothing but the truth so help your black ass?

I’ve been super busy, selling a shit ton of real estate.  However, I have finally gotten pissed enough to take time out of my busy day to rage.  And rage I will.

Y’all know I don’t like it when the police shoot dogs.  Nine times out of ten it’s unwarranted.  Now the police have been shooting negroes for years but now it’s just getting out of hand.  They’ve been shooting good negroes for no reason.  How am I going to get my house clean and my cotton picked if the police keep shooting all the negroes.

Stop.  Wait a minute.

I think the NFL is blocking the youtube, but really.  Go watch it again.  Beyonce didn’t do a goddamn thing.  Yet there are some white people racists who are all up in a wad over this.  It’s stupid.  Very stupid.  And it shows who you are.  Rudy Guiliani?  We know who you are.  Faux News?  We know who you are.  And now the rest of you, we know who you are.

Beyonce is a little pissed off.  Or sassy.  Take your pick.  Yeah, her husband was a drug dealer way back in the day.  He made it off the streets.  Give a young black man a different opportunity and he will take it.  Jay-Z took the road that got him a half a billion dollars in the bank.  How’s that old F150 treating you and your trailer Mr. Racist Puke?  I don’t care that he dealt back in the day.  I care that he got through it.  I assume if you care so much about drugs you didn’t vote for GW because of his coke snorting past.  Oh, no, you voted for him because he seemed like a good guy to sit down and have a beer with…right.  He’s an alcoholic you jackass.  So Jay-Z is Satan for dealing way back in the day but the white Congressman’s son with the drug problem can be President?  Tell me about how you aren’t a racist again…

Here’s my take.  Beyonce is a powerful, beautiful, talented woman that your racist little pukes can never have.  And she makes it clear you can’t have her.  And you’re threatened by that.  Instead of screaming how she’s disrespecting the police, check yourself.  Because you are the problem.

While you’re checking things, check this.

29 shots by SFPD.  Cenk crushes it.

Enough is enough.  This needs to stop.

The police are escalating and the people are escalating.  And the NRA is escalating.  And this shit needs to stop.  Next up…a rant on Trump and xenophobia, complete with Nazi parallels.

Oh what the hell.

I like to dip and I like to spit

Don’t you worry your pretty little heads.  I’m still here and I’m still pissed.

I am particularly pissed at anyone who thinks that Donald Trump, Ben Carson or Jeb Bush would make a good President.  They won’t.  They suck.  And you are an idiot if you think that any of these guys could be President.

Trump has the most potential, if he weren’t a racist loose cannon.  At what point does he say “Some of my best friends are Mexican?”  That’s not what this country needs.

Jeb Bush?  Because W did such a great job?  I love how the Bush’s are trying to rewrite history.  Sorry.  We were here.  Your idiot brother allowed the economy to bluster unchecked after 9/11.  You created the mortgage crisis and sat on your hands while millions of Americans lost their homes.  You can find on this very blog where I raged about Bush telling us to “Go to Disneyland” after 9/11.  You can look at the craptastic disaster of a country he handed over to Obama in 2009.  You know, Obama, the worst President ever.  The guy that has held interest rates to all time lows in spite of the banks and Republicans beating him in every way to raise them?  Why do you think they want their own guy in there?  To raise rates to they can make more money.  It has nothing to do with wanting to help you or I.  And let’s not forget Daddy’s War.  Or that fact that it was child’s play for the Seals to get Osama bin Laden once they had the orders to actually go and looked for him.  Obama the guy who has nothing to do with premium being $2.65 at the corner by my house?  The guy that got everyone back to work?  Yeah, that guy.

And you want four years of that crap?

Or Ben Carson.  What a total looney tune.  We’re splitting hairs on some resumé padding right now.  Because West Point doesn’t have scholarships.  You’re either in or you’re not.  But you have to apply to get in and he never applied.  So if he applied and got in arguably everyone gets a full scholarship…I’m more interested in those Egyptian grain silos.  And he’s leading the pack.  Shame on you America.

Sing the rain on the roof on a summer night

It’s time.

I haven’t got off a good rant in a while.  Let’s do this!

The precipitating factor was a comment on Kid President’s facebook page.  His comment was “We need to live in a world with fewer selfies and more #otherpeoplies”.  Cute for sure.  Although my selfies with Bill the Dog make this world a better place, but I digress.  Someone commented “We need less ‘I’m offended’ and more ‘I’m listening’.”  On it’s face that sounds great.  Except for one thing.  Some shit is just goddamned offensive.

I’m not listening to these assholes.

^That is a Getty Image apparent taken by Spencer Platt originally found on theroot.com

That is offensive and I’m offended.  I’m not listening to those assholes.

This?

^Image Reuters via the japantimes.com who must thing we are a bunch of ass clowns.

Not listening.  And extremely offensive.  And embarrassing.  I’m embarrassed that jackholes like these clowns get a vote in this country.  They aren’t civilized.  Sorry.  They aren’t.

I generally agree with the General but ok.  If you want to round up the radicalized Muslims then you need to round up the radicalized white supremacists as well.  A Muslim shot four but how quickly we forget about that little shit that shot nine in a church last month.  His ilk were out in their hoods and robes last week in South Carolina.  Are they any less dangerous to America?  No.   And they’ve done a lot more damage over the years.  Oh, but it’s ok because they’re white?  No, it’s worse because they’re white.

How sweet the sound

Well this was a good week to be an American.

gay agenda

 

I gotta agree with 2001 Britney.

I am quite shocked that this SCOTUS arrived at this decision.  I thought the court was so loaded by the Bush’s that it could not arrive at this decision.  48 years after Loving v. Virginia they finally righted another wrong.  Well some of them.

Oh the irony!

Thanks Obama.

Speaking of irony, enjoy this little gem.

There should totally be some accountability for that one.

Next up, the confederate flag.  Last time I said the conversation would get confused.  Didn’t see the confederate flag thing coming, but seriously, why?  Take it down.  I’m part German.  I don’t fly a Nazi flag as part of my German heritage.  It was a horrible part of my heritage’s history, just like slavery was a horrible part of US history.  Take it down.  We all have a lot of bad history.  History is the past.  We make our future.  It should not involve racism, bigotry, or hate.

It really was quite a week.  The Boston Marathon bomber was sentenced this week too.  The Charleston shooter should get the exact same thing for what is essentially the exact same crime.  They hated a people that weren’t like them and they killed them.  They should both swing.

And finally, Obama.  If Presidential retirement ever gets old he should preach.  Seriously.  He tore it up yesterday.

He certainly doesn’t have a singing career in his retirement but he sure can preach it.

 

 

What it is

There are no words for how pissed I am at the right wing douchebags right now.

Nine church going Americans lie dead and these assholes are deliberately confusing the conversation.  They are doing it because they don’t want to face the fact that we are the only civilized nation that has this kind of gun violence.  The rest of the world is asking what the hell is wrong with us.  And I have to concur.  What the hell is wrong with us?

Rick Perry, total asshat that he is called it “an accident”.  Hey jackass!  Was it an accident the 2nd, 3rd, 4th or 5th time he reloaded?  WTF?  WTF?  Not an accident.  A deliberate act of terrorism against black people.  Period.  It has nothing to do with Christianity.  I has everything to do with hate, racism and guns.  He hated black people.  He was a racist.  He killed them with guns.  Period.  End of story.  Everyone else?  STFU.  Period.

Oh I know, one of Rick Perry’s flying monkeys said he “misspoke”.  Bullshit.  Bullshit.  Did I say flying monkeys?  No, he’s the guy the follows the elephants in the 4th of July parade and scoops up the elephant shit.  That’s who said he misspoke.  Sick of it.

And seriously, what the hell is he talking about?

And Jeb Bush?  Arguably stupider than his idiot brother.  We don’t know if racism motivated white supremacist shooter?  Who we?  You got a turd in your pocket?  Any thinking person knows that a white supremacist is motivated by racism you ass clown!  You, are way too stupid to run this country.  Way too stupid.

Donald Trump.  STFU.  Seriously.  I bought the property from some Chinese guy?  STFU.

Who else?  Who else wants a piece of me this morning?

Until each and every one of us calls out racism, bigotry, sexism, prejudice of every kind when we see it, this nation will not change.  The thing is, it seems to me we are heading back to the 30’s.  At what point do we start segregating buses, lunch counters and water fountains again?  That seems to me to be exactly what Rick Perry, Jeb Bush and Donald Trump want.

So make lots of noise

 

Bruce/Caitlyn Jenner.  Why do we care?  Seriously.  I’m not married to either one of them.  Who gives a shit?

Rachel Dolezal.  A little more interesting.  She’s not black enough because she’s white.  She’s too black because she’s white.  She is checking the wrong box on her Census form?  I guess.  It’s not like there isn’t a whole bunch of people out there living out their fantasies as someone who they aren’t or maybe someone they became.  It’s just that Jenner can go to the best Doctors in America and go through gender reassignment.  I don’t think you can go through race reassignment so Rachel, we’ve got a problem.

And then there’s this.

Laverne Cox is interesting to me in that she has a twin brother who plays Marcus pre-op.

At some point it’s going to be ok to just be human.  If you are a good, kind person that’s good enough.  If you’re a shit, you’re a shit.  You aren’t a white shit, or a black shit or a hispanic shit, you’re just a shit.

Speaking of shits, here is an interesting factoid that I did not know.  Crime went down in the 90’s and it has been attributed to Roe v. Wade.  What?  Women who got pregnant who didn’t have the desire or ability to raise children didn’t have them.  So unfit mothers had less children and less criminals were created and crime went down.

Fed Up the movie.  Watch it.  You know when you see something and you say “Goddammit!  I knew it!”  It’s like that.

Does either side have someone normal they are running for President?

I’m sorry.  I don’t give a shit about the Golden State Warriors.  They have won once in my lifetime.  Once.  I just don’t care.  Although Stephen Curry’s kid is awfully cute.  And Lebron is an asshole so there’s a good reason to root for the Warriors, if you gave a shit, which I don’t.

And I’m sick of advertisers wasting my time on youtube.  Enough.

 

 

Been a long time

I know.  I know.  I suck.  But I’m here now.

The problem is I don’t turn on the news any more so I am slightly less pissed off these days.  However, I do turn on the interwebs so let’s buckle our seatbelts kittens because the stupid is deep.

Mike Huckabee.  Moron.  Here’s the quote “We are moving rapidly toward the criminalization of Christianity”.  No we aren’t you moron.  When I was a little kid we sang “Jesus loves the little children, all the children of the world, be they yellow black or white they are precious in His sight, Jesus loves the little children of the world.”  It doesn’t say all of the Christian children but not the Muslim ones.  It doesn’t say the Christian ones but not the Jewish ones.  It doesn’t say the Christian ones but not the Buddhist ones.  It says all of the freaking little children you ignorant shits!

Miss me?  Thought so.

Speaking of ignorant.  Paul Ryan.  Free school lunches give kids “an empty soul”.  Now, I would assume that means that Paul got free school lunches when he was a little tyke and that’s why he is such a soulless ignoramus.  No, you idiot.  Free school lunches many times are the only meals these kids get.  There is no food in their home.  There is no leave it to Beaver June Cleaver putting out fresh cookies and milk when they get home from school.  There is no one picking them up from school.  There is nothing to eat.  If these kids can’t get some nourishment somewhere they can’t learn and then they will be just as stupid as say Mike Huckabee or Paul Ryan.  I used to have a friend that taught school in East Oakland.  She said that the kids would be going to the nurse with headaches around 10am every day.  BECAUSE THEY WERE HUNGRY AND HADN’T EATEN SINCE LUNCH THE DAY BEFORE.  Little undernourished brains can’t learn.  Clearly Paul Ryan and his undernourished brain don’t know that.

I am just amazed at these idiots who think their experience is the only one out there.  Their mom made them school lunch and they went to a Christian church and they had clean sheets to sleep on and a roof over their head so pull up your bootstraps and make it happen Pilgrim!  Idiots.

Studies say that the lack of nourishment actually depletes the intelligent quotient.  So does hopelessness.  So poverty makes a normal human being dull.  Now what Paul Ryan or Mike Huckabee’s problem could be I don’t know but that’s why it’s so tough to get out of these neighborhoods.  The programs that bring hope to the hopeless change lives.  Feeding hungry children changes lives.  Being a money grubbing Mr. Scrouge just makes you an asshole.

She bet on one horse to win and I bet on another to show

How about a year end wrap up?  Oh what the hell?

Here are last year’s top ten:

  1. Lose that last 35 pounds.  Lost another 10 but still have a ways to go.
  2. Ride at 15mph. I started to get faster and then had that hamstring injury so I’m still sitting around 11.7mph
  3. Eliminate the rest of the debt.  Didn’t get this done but did make steady progress
  4. Eliminate the IRS issue.  Didn’t get this done either but am making payments thus eliminating the potential for debtors prison
  5. Practice the daily 10 five days a week.  I’m giving myself a C+ on this one.  I did remarkably well on this when I did it.
  6. Remodel main bath. Whatever
  7. Build mud room.  What evs
  8. Get Mustang closer to if not on the road. Yeah…no.
  9. Add a buyer’s agent.  Tried to but didn’t end up with enough buyers
  10. Squat 230, bench 300, dead lift 435.  Squat 150, Bench 170# dead 220# definite improvement
  11. Have 6 months reserves in the bank. I have about six weeks…
  12. Eliminate tolerations within 30 days of them presenting themselves. Giving myself a B+ on this.  A couple just won’t go away but I did remarkably well on this.
  13. Follow my schedule 80% of the time.  I started out real well on this and would have spurts of being excellent.  The importance of this one shows up in my bottom line.  When I do it things hum around here.

So all and all it seems like I missed every single goal, yet, the other one I missed was the Gross Commission earned.  I missed that.  I did 72% of what I set out to do.  But I increased my year over year by 28%.  Who else do you know that gave themselves a 28% pay raise.  My new assistant turned out to be a big ol’ can of awesomesauce.  I spent about $4500 on her so she more than paid for herself.

In review, I saved eight dogs this year.  I had to make the call on two.  One for temperament, the other for health.  It kills me every time I have to tell a shelter to put down a dog.  I haven’t had to do it in a while but I had to do it twice this year.  I lost my beloved Norman.  He was my defender.  I always felt protected when that do was here.  He broke my heart.

I rocked it on the AIDS/Lifecycle raising $5700 last year.  Thank you to all who participated.  Then I had that pulled hamstring incident.  That put a damper on a lot of this year’s activities.  The AIDS ride was marred by the death of a cyclist.  Nearly everyone knew her.  I have a picture taken with her and her husband from 2012.  She was a 14 time rider.  She had a heart attack on the bike and then struck her head coming off the bike.  She was brain dead.  They kept her alive on life support until the ride was over and then her husband said goodbye and her organs went on to save even more people.  He is a broken man.  I wish him peace.

Another death rocked our Keller Williams family.  A member of one of the big teams and the rainmaker’s sister relapsed after 12 years of sobriety and was found dead in a Reno hotel room.  She was way to young to go, a huge personality, a good woman and the hole is vast.  I wish them family peace.

Just this week a friend of mine was riding in a pack outside of Danville when the pack screwed up.  There was a wreck at the front and bikes and cyclists started going every which way.  My friend was at the back.  He’d been talking with a friend of his, a guy I knew peripherally.  I recognized his picture with his family.  The guy swerved to miss the wreck.  Simultaneously, a water truck swerved to miss the first crash.  The results were catastrophic.  A family will start out the new year without their father.  When I saw him yesterday I didn’t know this and said “I’m sorry about your friend”.  He started to tear up and then told me that he was there.  He saw the whole thing.  I wish him peace.

Since I can’t’ get these finished they remain on the list.

  1. Lose that last 35 pounds.
  2. Ride at 15mph
  3. Eliminate the rest of the debt
  4. Eliminate the IRS issue
  5. Practice the daily 10 five days a week
  6. Remodel main bath
  7. Build mud room
  8. Get Mustang closer to if not on the road
  9. Add a buyer’s agent
  10. Squat 230, bench 300, dead lift 435
  11. Have 6 months reserves in the bank
  12. Eliminate tolerations within 30 days of them presenting themselves.
  13. Follow my schedule 80% of the time

I think these are good for another year.  I am working towards all of them so I think it’s all good.

What I do know is that I am a very good real estate agent.  One of the best in our area.  I have been working on a growth plan that has been quite helpful for the last year.  I have it set up for this year again already.  I read 11 books last year and got Bill the Dog trained.  I went to four real estate events to help my business.  I am happy with that.  I am getting back my strength and I am happy with that.  I’ve lost 10 pounds and I am happy with that.  And my assistant has freed up some valuable time to allow me to relax now and then and while I’m still tired, I’m not as tired as I was this time last year.  Although I could use a nap.

This is for Norman.

 

They have the authority to kill a minority

One thing we all have to understand and most people don’t, there are the protestors and there are the troublemakers.  And they are not the same people.  In the Bay Area the troublemakers are the Anarchists and the thugs.  Those are not the people who are protesting the disproportionate deaths of African American men at the hands of the police.  It must stop.  I said when it happened that Eric Garner’s death was egregious.  It still is.  And if they shut down every highway in the bay area until change is implemented, I’m fine with that.  Because at the end of the day, we all bleed one color.  Red.  And that’s what matters.  Stop the bloodshed.  Stop the killing.

Here’s the deal and I’ve been talking about this for months.  Everyone talks about how few Realtors are actually good at their jobs.  About 10% will really rock your world.  Another 10-15% can do a decent job.  The next 60% are just average.  They don’t do anything amazing but they don’t screw up fantastically either.  The last 20% are thieves, liars and cheats.  Completely incompetent.  Think about the field you’re in.  The same thing is true.  It’s true for lawyers, it’s true in the military, it’s true for every other field out there.  Including policing.  The problem is cops have guns and interact with the general public.  So their screw ups are magnified.

Let’s use the military for instance.  There is this ideal in the country right now that every service person right now is above reproach.  Sorry, there have been dummies in the military since day one.  Idiots shooting their own limbs off, accidentally shooting their comrades and defecting.  About 20% of them do an amazing job.  About 60% of them are average and about 20% of them are just jackasses.  See how that works?

Stop protecting the jackasses.  All of them.  Including the lower 20% who authorized torture in the name of our government.  Lean into the upper 20% and for the love of God, don’t be average your own damned self.

On a happier note and a certainly not average note….this.
