Good Morning Campers,
Well, played darts for the first time last night since all this started and it went pretty good. Did find out that it’s been almost 4 months since I’ve had a dart in my hand and that hasn’t done much for my aim … but it was a good night. We tried to social distance as much as we could and did a good job of staying away from each other and that sort of thing. It was really nice to get a night out with a bunch of people who I consider part of my extended family.
Things have been REALLY buys on the work front. They have been keeping my little blue (okay, my BIG blue) ass hopping these last couple of days filled with phone calls and reports and all kinds of weird requests. Makes me think that something might be afoot. Stay tuned for more information on that as the days progress.
Other than that, my life is going along as you might expect. I read an article this morning that some fucking idiots in Richmond, Virginia tore down a statue of Christopher Columbus, set it on fire and tossed it in a lake as a symbol of racial oppression. Really? The dude credited with discovering America? Racial Oppression? You fucking dick-heads. The empty pedestal was spray-painted and covered with a sign saying, “Columbus Represents Genocide”. Some dumb ass (I’m not going to give her air time by mentioning her name here) said, “We have to start where it all began. We have to start with the people who first stood on this land.” So I guess Native American Lives Matter? Indigenous Peoples Lives Matter? Hey dumb asses – ALL LIVES MATTER!!! Mine as much as yours. I don’t give a damn what color your skin is, where you came from, or anything else. We all have the exact same opportunities in this country. We all know right from wrong.
Dammit to hell! I told myself I wasn’t going to do this. But this shit pisses me off! I wasn’t given anything special growing up. My parents worked for a friggin’ living! Dad worked at least two jobs, Mom was an RN and worked full time. Hell, the first ten years of my life I don’t think my mom and dad even saw each other except as one walked in the door and the other walked out on the way to work! And they passed that work ethic on to us kids.
At one point in time I was working one full-time and three part-time jobs just to make ends meet. I did that for three fucking years! I’m 61 years old and retirement is still a dream to me, working full-time because I can’t afford to retire. Because that’s what a grown ass adult does!
Don’t tell me about how fucking privileged I am! You want something out of life? Get an education, get a job, and get whatever the hell you want! But most of all, QUIT YOUR FUCKING WHINING AND BITCHING AND GET OFF YOUR ASS AND DO SOMETHING CONSTRUCTIVE INSTEAD OF SOMETHING DESTRUCTIVE!
Okay, my apologies. I kinda went off the deep end there. I just went outside, smoked a cigar. Kicked a flowerpot into the neighbor’s yard, drank a shot of Jameson. Drank another shot of Jameson. I was going to go back and delete everything I wrote, but I thought, no … that is the way I feel. I’m really tired of all of this. I was watching this thing on TV last night and was flipping through the channels and saw this quick shot of George Floyd and they had his picture up and had him on a background with like angel wings behind him and it almost made me throw up. Now, don’t get me wrong. The man didn’t deserve to have happen to him what happened. But he was a fucking lowlife thug. The cops deserve to be charged. The two younger ones deserve some leniency. I’ve been in a situation where I’ve had to follow orders or been the new guy and not known what I should do when an older, higher ranking piece of shit did something wrong and you didn’t know what you should do. Those two rookies should have known better, but they were still just rookies. Cut them some slack.
I gotta quit or I’m gonna rant all day, I can feel it in me.
So, let’s do something else, okay?
But first, I thought this was kind of appropriate after my rant…thanks to Aussie Peter for sending it to me…kinda the way I feel this morning
God, I sure hope the rioters in D.C. don’t do anything to the IRS building at 1111 Constitution Ave. NW, Washington, DC 20224. That would just be terrible!
I saw a bumper sticker that said, “I am a veterinarian, therefore I can drive like an animal.”
Suddenly I realized how many proctologists are on the roads.
Q: How did you meet your husband?
A: I’m a pharmacist. He cam to buy condoms and asked for XXXXL. And it was only after we got married I realized that he stutters.
I was told there would be a handbasket.
There are so very few of us left … and we’re mostly quite busy …
Since the wedding guests included all of the bride’s female volleyball team-mates, her bouquet stayed in the air for two whole hours.
Her: You’ll never succeed in building your happiness on the unhappiness of others!
Him: For the last time, I didn’t take your stupid chocolate bar, ok!?
Or a Social Worker … we can send you a Social Worker.
Excuse me, what time is it?
I can only tell you approximately …
Okay, go on!
… it’s Friday.
That’s a really good question, Mr. Sowell. Sadly, I wish we had a really good answer to go with it.
Her: Darling, I’m so sorry for what I said! I don’t know what could have gotten into me!
Him: It’s okay, honey. Oh, don’t touch your bowl of soup! Let me get you a fresh one!
On my application form, when it says who to contact in an emergency … I always put, ambulance or police … I mean, what the fuck is my mother gonna do?
She has moments when she seems stable, but then so does nitroglycerin.
I bought a porn DVD today and all I could see was a dark image of a fat guy holding his dong.
Then I realized the TV wasn’t on.
There’s a fine line between a numerator and a denominator.
Only a fraction of people will find this funny.
Ah.. more math humor!
Hey Sasquatch buddy, this one is for you!!!
Leah D just made a really good point in an email she sent me. She said:
I am still shaking my head. I had posted two videos, one was Candace Owens, a black woman, and the other was Larry Elder, a black man, both are highly educated. Both speak out against the rancid black tirades. Face book deleted them! They are censoring anything opposite the extreme Liberal view.
I’ve heard the same thing from several friends of mine who are really into the whole Facebook, Twitter thing. I don’t do either of them. I do all of my posting here and I’m just waiting for someone to start telling me that a blog at a website that I pay for is going to be censored. But, I’m sure it’s coming. Any of you having the same problems? Hmm, whatever happened to free speech?
Instead of canceling all the Fests this summer … we simply call them Protests with food and live music … then thousands can come and it will all be perfectly fine.
Yeah, okay. I want to know, too. And where is this posted? And the women’s restroom? Really and quite literally, WTF?
At every party there are two kinds of people, those who want to go home and those who want to stay. The trouble is, they are usually married to each other.
For all the peaceful protestors upset about being lumped in with the rioters, looters and lawbreakers …
It’s kinda like all the great police officers getting lumped in with the few bad ones, isn’t it?
Now that’s great advertising!
Did You Know: (Crap, what now?) Sylvester Stallone was so poor (How poor was he? hee, hee – oh – it’s not one of those? Sorry…) ahem … was so poor during the early days of his career he had to sell his dog to make ends meet. (Aww. that’s so sad!) I know, right, but after his success of “Rocky” he was able to buy him back! Okay, so happy ending.
Okay, so I guess I have to print this cause it’s been sent to me by a couple of different people now … and I do agree with it, but it is borderline ranting again and I’m gonna have to add my own two cents worth in somewhere…maybe … we’ll see. Here it goes.
As a man, I used to think I was pretty much just a regular person, but I was born white, into a two-parent household which now, whether I like it or not, makes me “Privileged”, a racist and responsible for slavery.
I am a fiscal and moral conservative, which by today’s standards, makes me a fascist because I plan, budget and support myself.
I went to High School, got a degree, got in some college and have always held a job. But I now find out that I am not here because I earned it, but because I was “advantaged”. I think I actually have one whole year of college and I think I actually spent one whole week on unemployment in my entire lifetime.
I am heterosexual, which according to “gay” folks, now makes me a homophobe.
I am not a Muslim, which now labels me as an infidel.
I believe in the 2nd Amendment, which makes me a de facto member of the “vast NRA gun lobby”
I am older than 60, making me a useless eater who doesn’t understand Facebook, Instagram or Snapchat. (Guess I have to lay claim to part of this. I understand all of those, just don’t like them or use them)
I think and I reason, (I read books) and I doubt much of what the “main stream” media tells me, which makes me a “Right-wing conspiracy nut”.
I am proud of my heritage and our inclusive American culture, making me a xenophobe.
I believe in hard work, fair play, and fair compensation according to each individual’s merits, which today makes me an anti-socialist. (I think I will lay claim to this one. I am definitely an anti-socialist. I think Socialism is the equivalent of communism. Everyone is equal. It’s just that some of us are more equal than others.)
I believe our system guarantees freedom of effort – not freedom of outcome or subsidies which must make me a borderline sociopath.
I believe in the defense and protection of America for & by all citizens, now making me a militant.
I am proud of our flag, what it stands for and the many who died to let it fly, so I stand and salute during our National Anthem (and never, under any circumstances, kneel!) – so I must be a racist.
Please help me come to terms with the new me because I’m just not sure who I am anymore!
Funny – it all took place over the last 7 or 8 years! If all this nonsense wasn’t enough to deal with, now I don’t even know which restroom to use… and I gotta go more FREQUENTLY! (Okay, can’t lay claim to this one. I have no doubt at all which restroom to use)
I just found the Impish Dragon, a couple months ago! How did I ever survive? And what a sweet last line to throw in there! Thanks! This version was from Gale N. But, like I said, I got it from several different people!
Sure, because I’m watching my sugar intake.
I’ll bet aliens ride past earth and lock their doors.
Daddy’s little girl can get him to do anything.
Leah sent us a comment about yesterday’s issue …
When Lethal was an active participant, I always wondered how two, such close, Like Minds, could approach with a different view.
I appreciated and Liked your Minds!
Thanks Leah. Yeah, it was a wonder, that’s for sure. We approached the same thing from two different sides, invariably we’d end up on the same side of things, yet see it from two opposing views. The amount of times we argued over the same thing, just a fine point or two was amazing. Love that guy, still do.
We are getting pounded with storms right now. Very exciting. Makes me want to go out and fly and play amongst the lightning. Blow off a little steam. Think that’s exactly what I will do. So, I will leave you here. With this final thought. Love one another each day, laugh with each other each day, and live each day with each other as if today was the last one you had on earth, because one day, you’ll be right.
Cheers dear friends.
I finally understand my dad’s feelings about the hippie of 1960s….they are running this country into the ground….protest…they did that. Down with the man….they did that…oh and I was a wee child but dont think they liked police either. I do remember race riots…I was 8 or so and scared. What are we doing to our children? This news is everywhere and they must hear it….
Besides the censorship by facebook, I have been unfriended, etc. because I post links, my views. Then I want to watch a little TV before I go to sleep, and they have put the same racial rant program on about 85% of the stations I watch. They are trying to force feed their view. I did not, will not watch it because of that very reason.
As usual, another great offering. I also loved the rant. When so many seem to be against everything this country was founded on the answer seems easy….. there’s the door. Sad that Mr Floyd died but where were the demonstrations when Minneapolis officer Mohammed Noor shot and killed an unarmed white woman who had done absolutely nothing wrong?
Thanks for the link, very entertaining although it took me a minute to get over you calling me out to something called Sad and useless . Com. Thanks buddy 😁 Keep up the great work.
Loved your rants today . Some people are not only stupid but also dumb as a skunk and yes I a insulting skunks, Can anybody explain to me why no one has started telling the great Judges that if they can tear down all the statures why has not marten l. king . sorry
Apparently the entire United States has gone ballistic, desiring to have another civil war. Can’t hardly stand to watch any news as I feel my brain is being washed. So sorry for the people who feel they are being belittled, how sad the USA is an example for the world to see how idiotic we’ve become!
Gee I just have one thing to say Columbus did not discover america…ironically just had this conversation tonight…after being in tornado warning mode several times tonight…we know how he mistreated the natives and very lucky he did not become supper…(cannibals) i read his journels…but he landed south of america…and no not south america either…so maybe the reason for destroying the statue…who knows what goes on in their minds…as my momma used to say only the shadow knows…have a good day…hbe careful throwing darts…especially if you throw darts like I bowl…
