Who is She?

 So, Paris Hilton is out of jail. I can't for the life of me understand why the media keeps saying "prison"? I guess it looks better in print to say "prison" when it is actually jail. And who in the hell is Paris Hilton, anyway? Why does the media continue to give this dime-store slut time on the airwaves? I know she is heir to the famous "Hilton Hotels" fortune.


        That is the ONLY thing separating her from a common "working girl". This woman, and I use that term loosely(pun intended...let your mind run with it!) has never did anything to help another person in her life. She is a two-bit slut who put out some video tapes of her having "wild" sex. I haven't looked at them, and don't plan to, either. I like my porn to be done by pros! And a pro she ain't! OK, enough dragging her ass over the coals.


          I am still waiting for my Bowflex machine. I really hope it helps me some. I know that I have to start a strict regimen, and stick to it. I can do that. If I can go more than three and a half years without smoking(hold your applause, please), then I can get myself in better shape. And that crap about seeing your doctor before starting any exercise regimen? Screw that, I know when I have had enough better than someone else. I know that I am starting out with some deficiencies(sp?). I just have to adjust my work-out routine to compensate for them. Now my brain hurts, too many big words! Which brings me to another thing that bugs the shit out of me...


  ......Pretentious assholes who use big words just because they know them. Even better, assholes who use big words, but in the wrong context! That almost always causes me to laugh in their face. I can't help it. There is just something so funny about someone trying to pull off that "big brain syndrome" that gets me every time. Hey, I am guilty of doing it sometimes, and it is still just as funny! Remember what I always say..."If you can't laugh at yourself, someone will do it for you!"

Something to make you Smile

So, today I am just bored. But, I shall give you something to look at..


Murphy's Lesser Known Laws -- Part One

Light travels faster than sound...
...this is why some people appear bright until you hear them speak.

When you go into court... are putting yourself In the hands of 12 people...
...who weren't smart enough to get out of jury duty.

He who laughs last...
...thinks slowest.

Change is inevitable...
...except from a vending machine.

Those who live by the sword...
...get shot by those who don't.

Nothing is foolproof... a sufficiently talented fool.

The 50-50-90 rule:
Anytime you have a 50-50 chance of getting something right...
...there's a 90% probability you'll get it wrong.

If you lined up all the cars in the world end to end...
...someone would be stupid enough to try to pass them...
...five or six at a time...
...on a hill... the fog.

If the shoe fits...
...get another one just like it.

The things that come to those who wait...
...will be the things left by those who got there first.

A case for holding dead batteries.

The shin bone is a device for finding furniture in a dark room.

A fine is a tax for doing wrong.
A tax is a fine for doing well.

( ...and, cute sayings for those who love the philosophy of hypocrisy
and ambiguity... )

Don't sweat the petty things...
...don't pet the sweaty things.

Atheism is a 'non-prophet' organization.

If man evolved from monkeys and apes...
...why do we still have monkeys and apes?

I went to a bookstore and asked the saleswoman...
..."Where's the self-help section?"
She said if she told me... would defeat the purpose.

What if there were no hypothetical questions?

If a deaf person swears...
...does his mother wash his hands with soap?

If someone with multiple personalities threatens to kill himself... it considered a hostage situation?

Where do forest rangers...
...go to 'get away from it all'?

"Even A Journey of a Thousand Miles"...

 Let's take a journey, ok? I am embarking on a new quest, and you are invited. Late Tuesday evening I ordered a new "Bowflex" machine. I had wanted to order the base model at $800.00. I would have gotten around to it, I just needed a little push. That push came Tuesday evening.


          I answered my telephone only to hear a female voice from Bowflex asking me if I still had the credit card that they sent me a few months ago. "Yes, I still have it", I replied. I told her of my plans to order the base model. I was offered a "deluxe" model(comes with more attachments) for $1299.00. Whoa! I wasn't looking to spend that much! After some more talking, the voice offered me the deluxe model for $799.00! I couldn't believe it. I mean, hear I was, trying everything I knew to get some off the price, and she hits me with $500.00 off the price, and FREE SHIPPING!!! Yeah, I am now the owner of a Bowflex machine. I have wanted one for years, now I am awaiting it's arrival in five to ten working days.


          Now, I hear some of you saying I was "suckered" into this deal. Not really. I will tell you why. Diet and Insulin are not controlling my diabetes. My blood-sugar readings are consistently over 200, and sometimes as high as 400. What's normal, you ask? Well, for me, they want to see something around 148 consistently. Now, that is what they want as an average...not every time, that would be impossible.


             Since diet and insulin aren't keeping it in check, exercise is next. And since I already have a bad heart, and a bad knee, exercising outside the home is not possible. Couple that with the fact that I don't really like a lot of people, and I am stuck here, sitting on my rapidly expanding ass. This is not a good thing. Not good at all. So, I will tell everyone here when I get my machine. Since it will ship in TEN, count 'em, TEN boxes, I am assuming that it has to be put together. Since I have worked on everything from farm tractors to tanks in the army, I think I can handle it. I certainly have the tools for it. Man, my UPS guy is gonna hate me for this one! And, yes, I know the UPS guy by his name...and he knows me, too! As a matter of fact, he knows just about everyone here in town by name.


             So, come along for the ride. Bowflex says just 20 minutes three days a week, and you will see results in about six weeks. Now, since I have ALL DAY to work out...well, you get the idea. This should be interesting.

A Tragic Loss

 I am sick. As I mourn the loss of a once great wrestler, I also mourn the passing of his family. By his own hands. His wife was strangled, and his little seven year old son smothered with a pillow. It's just too much to take in. Why the child? What did he ever do to deserve that?


         The police investigating this case say that it may have been "'roid rage", from too many steroids. I don't care if you are trippin' like Jack from "Jack and Jill" fame, you do not kill your own children. I have been around guys that were taking steroids. They can be a nasty crew, but nothing I couldn't handle. I have never feared anyone on steroids. I don't even know where I am going with this...If YOU want to leave, then go. But, YOU do not make that choice for someone else. Only if you are defending your home and family do you even consider taking another's life. I can't say it enough...people do not get to kill other people! I need to go look at some least those people aren't killing others.

A sad Day Indeed

 it would seem that the death of Chris Benoit and his family was at his own hands. It is being ruled as a double homicide, and suicide. This does nothing to quell my anger . How could this happen? This man is right at the pinnacle of his carreer. How could he take the life of his own son, and his wife? None of this makes any sense at all. I guess we shall never know the evil that lurks in men's hearts.


         Even though this news just makes this thing worse, I could not, in good conscience, leave here this evening without telling those of you who were interested, the truth. But my initial question remains..."what the fuck is wrong with people these days"? I just can't fathom something like this. Anyway, I just wanted to let you know as soon as I knew. I am terribly sorry to have to bring this to you.


        :-(Holla' If You Hear Me!!!:-(

How Can This Be?

 If that last rant wasn't enough for you, I just found out that one of wrestling's superstars is dead. Chris Benoit, his wife, and his son, were found this morning in their Atlanta home, dead. Police are investigating, and that is all that I know at this point. I had to tune in to see wrestling tonight, and found this out.


         There has been nothing in the news on the internet about this today. It's a shame, really. If this were some overpaid, prima donna football or basketball star, it would be all over the news. But it wasn't. I had to go to the W.W.E. website to find out anything! That is just sad. This man had over 22 years in pro wrestling. But to find his wife and child dead with him? What fucking sicko could have done this? What was I just saying about what is happening in this world. Say what you will about pro wrestling, I personally know that your notions are wrong. I was a "pro" wrestler for just over a year. It was the hardest "job" I ever had. More physically demanding than anything I ever did.


            You don't last as long in the business as Mr. Benoit did without a little something "upstairs". It just doesn't happen. And now, to hear that he and his family have died senselessly. What the fuck is wrong with people? This man never hurt anyone, his wife and child certainly never hurt anyone! If they were murdered(the cops aren't talking, just yet), I hope the scum that did it gets fried. I hate the loss of any life, but the scum responsible for this travesty NEED DESPERATELY to die. No mercy, no stays, no fuckin' around. And, just like I said before, they will end up with little time for this. I am just pissed off that someone, an entire family for that fact, could be killed IN THEIR HOME. I really hate the world, and a lot of the people in it.  Senseless, just senseless.


 :-(Holla' If You Hear Me!!!:-(

Another Death

So, have you been hearing about this bullshit in Ohio? A cop is charged in the killing of a pregnant mother. Let's play "what is wrong with this picture", shall we? First of all, she was white, he was black.  She was single, and had one other child that belonged to him. He was married. I am sure that he kept telling the girlfriend that he "was going to leave her anytime now". It is a common ploy used by married men. And, sadly, most will leave the wife for a younger girl. The black and white thing that I mentioned earlier? Well, let's just say that this girl must have had very little practice in handling a mad black woman.


             I am not against black women. I just know from experience that they "handle their business" a lot more agressively than a white girl. They didn't come up with the saying "you go girl" for nothing. Look, don't hate me for stating the truth. Now, what else is wrong with this picture? Remember that 'asshole' out in California that murdered his pregnant wife because of a girlfriend that was pressuring him to leave her? I refuse to type his name, he isn't worth it. What is happening to people these days that they can murder a PREGNANT WOMAN?


            I must state right here, no matter WHAT you think of Bikers, there were ALWAYS two kinds of persons who were exempt from 'hits'. These were women and children! There was no "bending" of the rules on that one....ever. How can you even consider killing a pregnant woman? Also, this asshole was, or is, a cop. It is no secret that I loathe cops. I strictly abhor them. I will not even tolerate them if I need them...fuck 'em. I hate them, I can't get any plainer than that. This asshole probably thinks he will get away with this.


            The really sick part of all of this...he just might get off with nothing. Even if he did it(and it looks like he did), he may walk away from it. Why? Two reasons; first, and foremost, he is black(shut up, you saw O.J. walk away from a double murder), and second, he is a cop. His cop friends will cover for him, they always do. I know personally how crooked cops can be. Also, people will tell you that race has nothing to do with this case. Don't fall for that shit. They said race had nothing to do with O.J.'s case...they lied, it had everything to do with it! Can you say "Rodney King Race Riots"?


          White people "learned" from those riots. Now, blacks are more apt to walk away from a crime with little or no time put up. I hear you bitchin' in the back. Saying "there are more black persons in prison than whites." I have covered this before. Whites are more likely to have a good attorney. And, it has been proven that cops just like to pick on blacks. They call it "profiling", read a paper sometime. I believe that profiling is used extensively. I also believe it works. I get "profiled" every time a cop lays eyes on me. I don't look to suit them, but, hey, I don't like the looks of them, either!

Last Week---Father's Day

 So, I noticed I didn't write anything about Father's Day. Well, last Saturday, my oldest daughter, her husband, and the two kids came to take me out for dinner. Now, the little girl was already here when they came, so I spent most of the day with her. Her little brother, who is only three had a great time with his "pop-pop". I know he had a good time because he was telling everyone that he was "going to kick their butts". He only says this when I am around him. I guess he figures if he can start it, I can finish it.


                  We went to a local Chinese restaurant. Since it was "crab-legs" nite, my son-in-law was happy as a clam(pun intended). My little grandson was content to eat the shrimp off of my know I let him do it. My granddaughter didn't see anything she wanted on my plate, but we made her a plate to suit her tastes. As expected, both kids paid no attention to their mom or dad. But then, mom and dad allowed them that little luxury for that evening.


               Then, on Sunday, my wife and youngest daughter took me out to lunch. We go every Sunday, anyway, but they said it was for Father's day, so I let them. We had a good time, it was quieter without the grandchildren, but different somehow. My youngest girl is gone to Amarillo, Texas as of this writing. She went with her best friend and her parents. That child is having one of her best summers yet.


            First off, she went to "summer bible camp", her first time ever to go. After a week of that, she came home for two days, then went back to summer bible camp as a "helper" for the little(4 to 8 year olds) kids. She spent a week at that. Now she is gone to Texas. I hope she doesn't have to do one of those "What I did This Summer" papers when she goes back to school. It would take her a week to write it! Later, my minions!

Trust, or the Lack Thereof

I could really use a bottle of  whiskey right about now. I guess it is just one of those days again. I swear, I think too much. I get to thinking about something that is gone by, and I can't get it out of my head. It just sticks in there, and it stays. I really hate that. It becomes almost like an obsession.


        Trust takes a lifetime to build, and only the whisper of betrayal to be utterly destroyed! Does anyone have any idea what I am talking about? A betrayal, whether real or imagined, can ruin a person's life. And "love"? Shit, don't get me started!


         "Love". A really shitty word, if I must say so. Love is the woman's way to completely ruin a man. To gain his trust, then to shatter that trust right in front of his eyes. Then to try and lie about it, even when the evidence points to her guilt. Love. A way to get fucked without making actual, physical contact with a woman. Love. A quick knife in the back, and a good twist. Love. A way to positively rip the heart out of a man, and then rub his nose in it. Some people aren't as "cute" as they think. Some people are no longer in my protection, or my thoughts. Some of you who read this will try to contact that certain "someone" of whom I speak....they will never know that you tried.

Well, it's a Start

 Here, read this real quick, and I will give my thoughts on it(you knew I couldn't resist).


Disciplinary Panel Disbars Duke Prosecutor
RALEIGH, N.C. (June 16) - District Attorney Mike Nifong  was disbarred Saturday for his "selfish" rape prosecution of three Duke University lacrosse players - a politically motivated act, his judges said, that he inexplicably allowed to fester for months after it was clear the defendants were innocent.

"This matter has been a fiasco. There's no doubt about it," said F. Lane Williamson, the chairman of the three-member disciplinary committee that stripped the veteran prosecutor of his state law license.

Even Nifong and his attorneys supported the decision, though the veteran prosecutor refused to admit to the end that no crime occurred at a March 2006 lacrosse team party.

The committee said Nifong manipulated the investigation to boost his chances of winning his first election for Durham County district attorney. In doing so, he committed "a clear case of intentional prosecutorial misconduct" that involved "dishonesty, fraud, deceit and misrepresentation."

Williamson specifically cited Nifong's comments in the early days of the case, which included a confident proclamation at a candidate forum that he wouldn't allow Durham to become known for "a bunch of lacrosse players from Duke raping a black girl." He also called the lacrosse team "a bunch of hooligans" at one point.
      So, now this crooked prosecutor is out. A judge in the case handed him his walking papers today. This is only one case of a crooked prosecutor losing his job; there are others that need to be stopped. The one real crime in all of this; this asshole cost the families of those boys millions of dollars in legal fees, got the boys kicked out of college, and will STILL get his pension money! If he broke the law as they say he did, shouldn't he go to jail?
         We have an asshole around here just like this guy. He is the county prosecutor, and a judge at times. He is also an attorney to people who pay him. He will  agree to take someone's case for a fee, and the other side will come in and get him for a larger fee, so he drops the first client. This is, naturally, after he has all the information he needs on the first client to win the case for the second client. Now, I don't know much about law, but wouldn't that come under the heading of "conflict of interest"?
            I say that nearly all prosecutors are dirty dealing, underhanded, and plain out crooks. This Mike Nifong case is just the tip of the iceberg. I say "burn them all". They all lie and cheat, and will do anything to win a case, even if the person/s are innocent. Even when they are found to be lying, they never go to jail for their crimes. That is just wrong!

This Just Can't be Fair

 Would you like to know what pisses me of? And, shut up in the back, I heard you say "everything". I mean other than that. I have been watching these people on tv that have let themselves go, and are what the doctors call "morbidly obese". I am talking about people who range in weight from 500 to over 700 pounds!


       I am not mad because they have done this to themselves,(and the have, I don't care what excuse they use), I am pissed off because I hear the doctors on these shows say that these people "run the risk of heart disease, stroke, or diabetes". WHAT? RUN THE RISK? I can't even get my blood-sugar levels where my doctor wants them, and these 'wide-loads' are only "running the risk of"? What the fuck is that about?


       Most of my life I have avoided sugar if I could. I just don't like sweet things. Yes, I have had cake, or candy, or whatever, but always in small portions. I just don't like sweets like other people do. When I first started watching these programs it was more for me than anything else. I figured if I saw it firsthand, then I wouldn't fall into that trap. You see, I tend to not go places these last few years, so I was getting worried that I could end up like one of those people.


        I am not without compassion for these people. I know firsthand how hard it was to quit smoking. I can't even imagine how hard it would be to have to virtually stop eating. I mean, you can do without smoking, but everyone HAS TO EAT to live. That is a loaded gun for those people. I can tell you one thing. If they had diabetes, and had to take shots all the time, they might learn a new word...MODERATION. I have had to give up nearly everything I like because of this friggin' diabetes! I truly hope I never end up like one of those people, with some talk-show host cutting a wall out of my house just to get me out....damn, I couldn't even imagine the embarassment, or the feeling of utter failure.

Who Are We

 Here is something for you to think about. In my youth, I was introduced to a man who was an Indian Shaman. American Indian, not those rag-head assholes from the middle east. This man was a REAL American Indian, from the Iroquois tribe in Michigan.


         I made a few trips to this man for advice. Not because I believed he was like some fortune-teller, but because the things he said made sense. And believe me, at that time, very few things made any sense at all to me. I wouldn't say that on the path of life I was lost, but I was wandering from the path a lot.


           On one visit, he asked me, "who are you"? I told him my name, and I said that he knew me. He simply asked the question again..."who are you". I couldn't answer him. At the time, I had no idea "who" I was. He told me not to worry, that I would find out "who I was" soon enough. He told me to always hold the values that I had at the time. Now, that may sound strange to you after reading yesterday's page in this, but it isn't, really.


           I have always known what was fair, what was right, and I have an unshakable sense of duty and honor. A sense of brotherhood that has never waned. Those are the things that I was told to hold onto. Who am I?


         I am a simple man that enjoys the simple things. I have never lusted for the rich man's gold. I have taught my children right from wrong, and that  family are the only ones you can count on. I will always fight for the underdog in any situation. I don't take shit from anyone, and I have taught my children that trait, also. If I live long enough, I will teach these things to my grandchildren. Oh, I don't worry about death, either. It's just another journey that some take. "Who am I"? The quest to answer that is still on-going; who knows where it shall lead? Now, I ask, "who are YOU"?

Relatives, and Relativity, as Only I can See It

 There I was,  going through my E-mails, when I came upon a letter from a relative on my real dad's side. An Aunt, she is really cool, and hey, coolness goes a long way with me. Her question was "what about your younger brother, do you two talk or get along". There is a very simple answer to But, it is not that simple, at all. Oh, quit yer bitchin', you KNEW it wouldn't be THAT simple!


         Actually, there are five of us kids. Four boys, and a little sister that was born last. Because of our mother's constant beatings, us boys hardly ever got along. I think that we took out on each other the hatred we held for our mother. We didn't just argue. Our arguments almost always ended in pure, raw, fights. And none of that sissy-shit, either. None of that rolling around on the ground, and fuckin' around. These were stand-up, fist in the face fights. We didn't mess around. Yes, there was ALWAYS blood in our fights.


          Now, there are reasons why I never talk about my siblings. But, the main one is that I hardly care about them at all. I have no sense of family. Getting beat on for most of your childhood sort of does that. I sort of feel bad that one of my brothers is gone, but, hey, "I didn't do it". That sounds bad to you, I know. Besides, I look back at the times we fought each other, and the time me and him fought off a bunch of guys back-to-back one day. He was a tough little bastard, so I know he didn't just lay down. I am convinced he fought to the very end. I respect that, and that is what he would have wanted most...respect.


        No, I don't hardly ever talk to my younger brother, even though he lives just a few minutes away. I won't say why here, we just don't click, and we never will. We grew up hard, and we remained that way to this day. I can remember that in High School I was nick-named the "Sucker-Punch King". That was a bit un-deserved, actually. I see a sucker-punch as you hitting a guy from behind. I never did that. Can you remember back in school when two guys would get into a shoving match, and both would say, "hit me, go ahead, hit me"? Well, I never did that.


          If another person squared off against me, they were fair game. If their shoulder so much as twitched, or their hand moved, they were instantly on the ground. I never fucked around about hitting first. If you waited at my house in a fight, you got your ass kicked, usually fairly quickly!  I can even remember one time in my junior year, this asshole kept bugging me at the start of the year. He wanted to "challenge the Sucker-Punch King". Some guys are just stupid. One day in class he kept hitting me in the arm, and shooting spit-balls at me. He was in the row to the left of me. I asked the teacher could she make him stop, or could I PLEASE knock him out of his desk?


            The teacher, and my tormentor, both found that statement funny, and she told me to be quiet. One more spit-ball was  all that it took. I knocked the bastard right out of his desk, and kicked him around on the floor for a bit. Just a few years ago, some guy that I pissed off said he would run me out of town the next time he saw me. A few days after he said that, I saw his car parked at the local Sheriff's office. So, I pulled behind him, got out of my car, pulled him half-way out of his window, and proceeded to beat the shit out of him right there.


        To answer the stupid question now forming on your lips, yes, I went to jail. What do you think? You can't beat people up in front of the Sheriff's office, and just walk away. You have to pay your dues in my "fight club". Did I win every fight? Fuck no! If someone says they have won every fight they had, then they are lying, or have never fought. Let me tell you a little secret...I have actually left in the middle of a fight. If you are losing, why stick around and get beat senseless? Screw that. There aren't any "rules" in street-fighting, and certainly nothing to keep you there if you are taking a beating! So, there it is. I, and my brothers, have absolutely NO QUALMS about beating somebody's ass if need be. Like I always say, "Don't start nothin', and there won't be nothin'". And that, my friends, is how my family puts the 'fun' in dysFUNctional!

The documents of the above funds in question was handed over to me to be
used in payment of an American oil merchant for his last oil deal with my
boss Mikhail Khodorkovsky. Already the funds have been deposited some where

 Who in the world falls for this shit? I can't believe that anyone could be so easily mis-led by this sort of thing. Do people REALLY think that they can get rich by sending other people money? If that were true, more people would pay their taxes on time! C'mon, minions, don't fall for this crap, and don't let your friends and family, either. Oh, by the way, this isn't my first rodeo, folks. I have seen scams come and go. Hell, I used to sucker people at my local pool hall. Let them win a few games, take some of my money, then raise the stakes, and beat the crap out of them. These scams in your E-mail are no different than a pool shark. Laterzzzzzzzzzzzz

Cats, Jewelry, and Pop-Corn

So, there we were last night, watching Vince McMahon of the "World Wrestling Federation" getting blown up. Now, I like the wrestling because I used to wrestle professionally. No, not here, not now, that is a story for another time, my little minions....


          My little kitten that we found abandoned on our door step was trying to get into my pop corn bag. You know the type-you just pop it in the microwave, and about four minutes later you have a tasty treat. Well, she is trying to get into the bag, climbing all over me, and whatnot. Now, I love my cats, but not when I am eating, and certainly not during wrestling. So, I gave her a piece for herself on the floor. She ate it! All of it! So, I gave her some more, thinking she would tire of the "game" and finally leave me alone. No such luck!


         Well, I was really into the wrestling last night, so I gave the bag of pop corn to my wife, and told her that the baby kitty would eat as much as she gave her. While my wife was playing with the baby kitty, I noticed that one of our other cats(we have three in the house) was "stealing" her necklace off of the table . I quickly told my wife, "hey, skittles is stealing your necklace"! She had it in her mouth, and was about to jump down from the table(coffee table). This cat has a problem with stealing things...


           Back in April, my wife found some mail, actually, quite a lot of mail, under our bed while cleaning. It had little teeth marks in it. Cat teeth marks. At that time, we only had two cats in the house...Skittles, and Sasha, the dominant female in the bunch. We have had Sasha the longest, and she had never did anything like that. We kept a close eye on Skittles, and sure enough, the culprit was found out! I left out some 'bait', in the form of some mail I had already opened. Well, Skittles stole it, and headed straight for our bed. I couldn't believe it!


          She has progressed from mail to 'shiny things', jewelry, for example. My wife now has to put her things in a small bowl with a lid on it, so Skittles will not be able to steal them! I tell ya', with cats in the house, anything is possible.

Staying Out of "The Void"

 So, to stay out of "the void" I have been trying to write as much as I can. And don't worry, my little shall not miss a thing; I am putting everything right here on these pages. Now then, a few days ago someone asked me, "what are your favorite things to drink"? Well, that is complicated(oh come on, you KNEW it would be!).


           First off, and everyone here knows this one...Beer! Any kind is fine with me. If I have a choice, I like Milwaulkee's Best...I hope I spelled that right? Budwieser is ok. My all time favorite is Coors and Millers. No lite beer for me, I hate that shit. You might as well drink panther piss. So, we have that covered. Oh, and imported beer is ok, but too pricey. Sam Adams is ok, too.


             Tequila!! Not just any kind, either. I only like the kind that my daughter brings back from Mexico for me when she goes. Since she only goes to Mexico once a year, then it is all that much sweeter! Whiskey is next. Jack Daniels, Canadian Club, Wild Turkey, any kind is ok with me. Whiskey is whiskey, period. I see beer as a "social drink". I see whiskey as a bracer, something to give you the false courage to take on the Biker at the end of the bar! You know, to do shit that will get you severely maimed, shit you wouldn't normally do! I only want whiskey if I am pissed off, and want to start some shit. And because of that, I tend to leave it alone.


           Next is "Moonshine", "White Lightning", "Shine", "White Whiskey" "Lightning in a Bottle", "The Blue Flame". This stuff is nearly 200 proof, and can sometimes take the paint off of your car! Everyone has heard of it, but I live in a place where it can still be bought. The drink is ok, but getting it could cost you your life. 'Shiners don't like lengthy prison sentences. Better to shoot someone they don't know than to go to jail...they can always hide the body. So, don't go snooping around another man's could cost ya'.


             In the vein of 'Shine, my daughter brought back some Mexican 'Shine last year. They make this stuff out of cactuses, or is that 'cacti'? Anyway, this stuff is clear, and will most certainly knock your socks off! The tasteis a little rough, but it goes down smooth enough, and always has the desired effects.


             Alright, at the bottom of the list is wine, wine coolers, and what I call "chick drinks"; Pina Coladas, Screwdrivers, any other mixed drinks. "Party Drinks" is another good name for them. If I am drinking 'hard liquor', I drink it straight from the bottle. Fuck all that mixin' and shit! If I have to choose between mixed drinks and beer, give me a bottle of Millers, and call it a night. I can't remember what all goes into some mixed drinks, so I'll just take mine, "neat". That is about all I need to know about ordering drinks in a bar. Speaking of bars...


         I have been in a bunch of bars in my life, but never in a "club". You know the kind of bar I am talking about, right? Biker bars, sawdust on the floor, dark as hell, loud juke-box in the corner playing some Lynyrd Skynyrd, or David Allen Coe, or some shit like that. Maybe they have a girl waiting tables, or two of them. Sometimes they have a live band on the weekends, sometimes not. You know if you stay long enough you will get to see at least one fight, maybe more. I used to call it "drinks and theatre". And, if you are lucky enough, you just might be involved in one of the fights! What a way to let off some steam.  And that, my friends, is what I like to drink, and where I like to drink it. But these days, I do my drinking at home. We don't have any biker bars around here. As a matter of fact, I actually live in a "dry" county. We have to drive a ways to get booze here. Sucks, don't it? Well, as they say, "Thus endeth the lesson".

Monkeys and Shakespeare

 So, there I am, reading through another Stephen King book, when something someone once said rears it's ugly head. The saying was, "Put enough monkeys in a room with typewriters, and they can write like Shakespeare". Ummm, no, they can't. I'll tell you why.


       I desperately want to write my life story. I think it is important to show just how much hardship it takes to finally break a person. I think it is important to also show just how that person held on to his\her sanity for as long as they did. Or didn't. Whatever. Now, as most of you know, I already possess a decent grasp of the "Queen's English". I am not just a backwoods yahoo who was "lern't at sc'ool". I can usually hold my own in a conversation with people far removed from my social standing.


         Now, knowing these facts, I ask you this; why can't I write a book? Because I am not Shakespeare. Or Stephen King. I am more like my favorite author, Edgar Allen Poe. Like him, not him. He was yards ahead of me by any stretch of anyone's imagination! He is the first author that I took an interest in when I was still in school. I think about the fourth or fith grade, I read "The Tell-Tale Heart". I was hooked from then on. The one thing that really pisses me off? He died broke and addicted to opium and "the drink". One of his friends found him in an alleyway one night. He took Mr. Poe to his home to recover. In just a few days, the world lost a great author. Dead from exposure, as much as his addictions.


       I believe Mr. Poe's spirit lives on in Stephen King, I really do. I imagine Mr. King would be pretty pissed off at that notion. He wants to think that the talent is all his. And, for the most part, it probably is...mostly. You see, all of you know I don't really believe in a "God" of sorts. I do, however, believe "spirits" that are worthy can come back, sort of like a "second chance". I firmly believe that Mr. Poe has made a somewhat subtle re-appearence on this Earth. I hope Mr. King can find it in his heart to forgive me my convictions on this one. Maybe just grant me this one little quirk in my nature, and not hate me for it. He could probably sue me, but about all he would get is a bunch of cats, and maybe my beer money. I don't think he would waste his time.


           So, you see, monkeys writing Shakespeare is about as absurd as me writing for Mr. King. It just couldn't happen. I don't care how many monkeys you give typewriters to, it ain't gonna happen. If that were true, I could let my little granddaughter write my material. She would certainly come closer than a bunch of simians in a closed off room! 'Till next time...


                 :)Holla' If You Hear Me!!!:)


 So, Ms. Paris Hilton gets 45 days for two, count 'em, TWO DUI's. She spends three days in jail, and the Sheriff's Dept. figures she has spent enough time in jail, so they let her go. Poor thing is then dragged, kicking and screaming, back to court, where the judge then says she will serve the full sentence of 45 days. Now she says she will serve the time, but it is the hardest thing she has ever done. Boo Fuckin' Hoo!!!


    Now then, to even grimmer news. The wife of a preacher from Selmer, Tennessee, shoots her husband in his sleep. Hmmm, that must be a life sentence at least. Oh, but my fair minions, it is not! This woman kills her husband in his sleep, and runs. They found her some 400 miles away two or three days later. She confesses to the killing of her husband. She was trying to hide the fact that they were in terrible debt because she was caught up in one of those "Nigerian Money Scams". You know the send money to hopefully get millions in return. You need to be a third-grade drop out to fall for this shit.


           So, to make a long story longer, she hires one of the Fareses. These guys are known locally as the most crooked lawyers in our area. Some of them are actually judges here, also! Convienent, no? Anyway, this murderer gets off with just three years. With the time already served, she will only put up about three more months, and she will be free. She is already fighting to get her children back!???


               What do these two women have in common? They would seem to be worlds apart. But they aren't. Both are so guilty that it is disgusting. But they both got off with nothing. Where does it end? What CAN I get away with before I am locked up? If the preacher's wife was murdered by the preacher, he would have gotten two life sentences! Cut and dried, no sympathy. Ok, what about a DUI? Well, around here, it carries a $1,000 fine the first time, and about four weekends in jail. A second DUI? A fine of $1,500 or more, at the discretion of the presiding judge, a suspended license(one year), and you CAN draw six months in jail, although it is rare to do so...they want you working to pay off the fine. Third DUI? That moves you up to the "Felony" category, and you WILL go to jail, sometimes for a year or more. Lose your licensefor good, and I don't even want to know what the fine is!


        Long story short, when will people be held accountable for their crimes? When they don't have money to pay shyster lawyers, that's when! Why is it that the person who murders is the "victim"?  Do you want to know why there are more blacks in prison than whites? Because a lot of whites can afford attorneys to keep them out of jail. Have you ever been in front of a judge with only a public defender? I have. The words "Man, am I fucked" take on a whole new meaning! Most public defenders are afraid of the judges they go up against. So, they tend to not argue the finer points of a case like a $500 an hour attorney would. The whole justice system is out of whack, and needs to be fixed. Things are just wrong at this time....just wrong!

Wait, I'm Not Finished Yet

 Ok, so I just read the news again, and it says that Bush is getting slammed(my words, not theirs), at home and abroad. They(the media) question as to whether he deserves this? Are you shitting me? Of course he does! Finally, some republicans (I KNOW it should be capitalized, I just refuse to), are jumping ship. Now, how they have held their breath for this long is beyond me! This ship isn't sinking, it sunk several years ago! it is high time to leave. Speaking of "High Times"...


         Before I moved to the "arm-pit of the world", I used to subscribe to a paper called the "High Times". It was the leading advocate for legalizing marijuana, well, that and "Rolling Stone" magazine. Where was I going with this? Oh, yeah, I still don't see why we haven't legalized "Mary Jane" yet. I would certainly use it if it were legal. I just don't want to spend the rest of my useful life in prison for smoking it right now. I haven't had any in I don't know how long. Having a family will do that to you. I know why it isn't legal right now...Bush. Hell, no one wants to fight a war if they are high! That would fuck up all of his plans!


           I'm not saying everyone should, or could smoke it. But, come on, it is a natural substance, and it can be grown everywhere. Maybe that is the problem. Even the simplest of folk can grow it, so the gov't wants tighter control over it. Fuck 'em, they want to control every part of our lives lately. I am about damn sick and tired of it. Have you seen this crap about the guy infected with TB? Went to Europe to have his wedding and honeymoon? Dude has balls, that is for sure! Besides, the gov't said they would "prefer" that he not travel. He wasn't quarantined, or anything like that. Now, there is this big flap about him getting on a plane, and traveling around the globe. No one said he couldn't. Back the fuck off, big gov't! You have no right to bitch now, you should have restricted his movements beforehand! Whatever, man, whatever.


           :)Holla' If You Hear Me!!!:)

You Don't Say...

  Well, well...Mr. Libby gets 21 months in jail. Let's review, shall we? He negligently, and willfully endangered the life of an undercover agent to cover up for the lies told by one Mr. George Bush. He lied to everyone who cared to question him about his "antics". He willfully withheld information crucial to the investigation of this case,and, I suspect, continues to withhold information. He helped in getting Mr. Bush his dirty little war in Iraq unlawfully. Hmmm, 21 months, that seems about fair. Are you fuckin' kidding me?!?!?!


        If this were you or I, we would never see the light of day again...ever. Remember all the "trouble" Rush Limbaugh was in for illegally obtaining prescription drugs? Oh, wait, what trouble? I guess it is true that America has the "best justice that money can buy". It is sick and disgusting. I am sick of hearing about assholes getting off with nothing, or some piss-ass little sentence in some fucking "club fed" jail. George Bush should be serving about 500 life sentences for the shit he has pulled off since his tenure in office. That also goes for anyone who helped him along the way! Dick Cheney, Don Rumsfeld, Condoleza Rice, and many more. Most have tucked their tail between their legs and run. Good, keep on going you cowards. You don't deserve to live in my America.


        That's right, MY AMERICA. I was born here, and I have lived on it's mean streets my entire life. Never rich, never priviliged, never above the law. An "average" citizen to the bone. Here is something interesting; a friend asked me a few days ago, "why not just hang Mr. Bush?". Well, as much as I don't like him, I would never condone the taking of a life...any life. Even one as worthless as his. I just still cannot believe that nearly every member of the congress and the senate gave him absolute power in the wake of 9/11! Now they have the nerve to cry "foul"? Some, at least. It seems like they finally came to their senses, only about six years too late! Oh well, maybe Bush is better than nothing? Nah, nothing would be better than this mess we are stuck with.


            Look at where we are now...we are seen as the "bully" of the world. Countries all over the world are telling us to mind our business. I think that is a good idea...and we have a bunch to mind. Did you know that OVER HALF of the people displaced by hurricane Katrina are STILL displaced? Just ask the folks in Texas, North Mississippi, Oklahoma, Tenneesse, Missouri, and a few other states that absorbed those poor; unfortunate people. Mr. Bush has done nothing to help them. Remember the town that was completely destroyed in Oklahoma just a few weeks ago? They were getting house trailers that were meant for misplaced residents of Katrina! It was reported that way. I guess it was as close as the liberal media would get to taking a jab at Mr. bunch of pussies! Act like you have got a pair...tell the truth!


            That is it for me today. Someone else can take a turn on the soap-box. And, please, don't be a pansy-ass, tell it like it is!

A Little Too Contrived...

 Ok, have you heard about this? According to C.N.N.(Contrived News Network), there were at least four men involved in a plot to blow up J.F.K. International Airport in Ney York. Really? Hmm, for an agency that couldn't forsee the plot of September 11, 2001, this seems like quite a stretch! Oh, and did they ever find the person, or persons, responsible for the Anthrax attacks on America just on the heels of 9/11?


        No, they didn't. Now, to claim to have found out this new plot to "kill thousands", and "get back at those bastards"? Sorry, folks, but I ain't buying their wolf tickets. Something very wrong has been going on since the inauguration of 2001. I can't be the only one to see it. Someone out there knows more than they are telling. Sooner or later, history will bear me out. I am not wrong about this.


            The news agency said that the plot was discovered by "Federal Authorities". Not F.B.I., not C.I.A., not "black ops". Not even the Justice Department, just "Federal Authorities". Now, it has ALWAYS been customary for these different government agencies to "take the credit", as it were, for foiling crimes. Not so anymore. All we get is "Federal Authorities"...non-specific crime-solvers. I still ain't buyin' it. Everyone and his brother in Washington, D.C. jumped on the F.B.I. in the wake of the 9/11 attacks. Said they were "incompetent", that they "should have known" about the attacks BEFORE they happened. Hmmm, seems like every week or so we hear about some plot that has been uncovered by these "Federal Authorities"; pretty fuckin' good for an agency/agencies that could not have found out that more than 20 terrorists were planning to hijack four different cross-country Jumbo jets!


           As far as I can see, something just doesn't add up here. I have looked into the "rabbit hole", and it is DEEEEP my friends.I will include a link to this latest "plot" for your reading enjoyment...

Into the Void

Sorry, guys, I am just not inspired to do too much here lately. Or anywhere else, for that matter. I think I am headed into one of the "down times" that comes with my particular "ailment". I have no idea why you go through these "cycles" as the doc calls them. I have been told that some people can cycle several times in a day! I don't think I could take that. Up one minute, down the next.


           I have quit just about everything. I am still baby-sitting for my granddaughter. She will be seven years old in July. Although, I sometimes wonder who is the watcher, and who is the watched? The incredible sense this child has about the world around her is an awesome thing to see! I am still amazed at the knowledge that her little brain holds. She is out of school for the summer, and she still has my daughter and me make out math problems for her to solve! Just amazing. Well, since I don't have much else, I will let you resume whatever you were doing...I hope it was evil, my little "minions".
