Death By Reality

Saturday, March 31st, 2012

A lot of people from the Class of 1968 died. Some lost their lives – many lost their dreams. As we used to say, “Same difference.”

Since you asked: I graduated from R.L.Thomas High School in 1968.  For those of you overseas, “R.L.” is located in Webster, New York (near Rochester) a town made famous by Xerox which was at its peak in the ’60′s.  Some of my classmates died from diseases (including AIDS), some by drug overdoses, a few by suicide, and at least one in Vietnam.

Most of the others “died” when they slipped into middle-class oblivion.  Who could have guessed that a real “rocker” – Brad Fox – would one day end up as the top Amway salesperson in America?


What Was Captain Hook’s Name . . .

Captain Hooker

(Nothing to do with Captain Hook’s name but I thought she looked hot.)

The Trayvon Martin Litmus Test

Thursday, March 29th, 2012

People believe what they want to believe. They have pre-formed  opinions and tend to look at those sources and examples which support their position.  And they are just as likely to disregard facts and ideas that challenge their point of view.  This is especially funny when people think of themselves as objective, “just-the-facts” people. They can’t see or refuse to accept their biases.

Psychologists call this confirmation bias.

Do you believe Trayvon Martin was just an innocent kid walking from the convenience store, was racially-profiled, and then murdered like other Black teens?

Or do you think he angrily attacked the man who was following him and trying to get back into his car – and was shot in self-defense?

I think when the facts come out, we’ll learn the truth falls in the middle and virtually no one will be happy with the conclusions.

How biased are you?  Here’s an article about your beliefs.  It’s a little long but I find it fascinating.

I’ll guarantee this – if you come out well,  you’ll think it’s a good piece.  If you come out biased, you’ll think it’s not a valid representation of you. Of course you’ll think that way!  Like the rest of us, you’re just a human nitwit.

OctoMom Bears 14 Kids Then Bares All

Wednesday, March 28th, 2012

Three years after giving birth to 8 kids (she already had 6), Nadya Suleman got nearly naked in the latest issue of the British magazine, Closer.

“I just pinged back into shape like a rubber band after the kids,” she insists. “I don’t know how I did it. I eat like a horse, don’t count calories and have never owned a scale.”

“I get way too much male attention but I won’t date until the octuplets are 18—I live for them now,” says Suleman, who claims, except for petri dishes, she’s been celibate for 13 years.

“I wouldn’t rule out a relationship in the future,” she points out. “But now, when men look at me I look away.”

Ah, the chance of a relationship with 14 immediate kids – in 15 years.  Again, my vasectomy scars are singing.  I think she has a nice body – it’s just when she talks …

“This Is Your Captain Freaking”

Wednesday, March 28th, 2012

Have a fear of flying?  It probably wasn’t helped much yesterday if you were on JetBlue Flight 191 from New York to Las Vegas.

About 3-hours into the flight, Captain Clayton Osbon began behaving erratically with the controls of the large, commercial jet. He then went to the mens room and came out screaming at the passengers:  “They’re going to take us down!” and “There’s a bomb on board! Al-Queda-Iraq-Afghanistan!” and “Better start saying your prayers!”

By this time the copilot had locked the cabin’s door – which enraged the pilot further – and called the control tower for instructions.  Passengers and crew members tackled the 6’4” pilot tying him with seat belt extenders and their own belts.  Once the plane landed, he was carried off by security personnel.

JetBlue is noted for its relatively inexpensive fares and a few free perks.  Who knew the cost of a ticket also included entertainment and group activities?

Canadian Crotch Con

Tuesday, March 27th, 2012

Jenna Talackova has been disqualified from the Miss Universe Canada pageant for being transgendered.

The very tall, blond model was born male but thought of herself as a girl since she was 4-years old. Ms. Talackova began hormone therapy at 14 and underwent gender reassignment surgery at 19.

On Friday, Miss Universe Canada explained that Talackova was eliminated “because she did not meet the requirements to compete despite having stated otherwise on her entry form.”

Of course, had Talackova told the truth, she would not be eligible anyway because the Pageant demands “naturally born female.”  WTF?!

When asked if she thought of herself as transgendered or as a woman,  Talackova replied, “I regard myself as a woman — with a history.”

Beauty pageants are antiquated, convoluted cattle calls.  If they wish to remain at least minimally relevant, they should change with the times.

Left-Wing Wingnuts Go Nuts

Spike “Doin’ the Wrong Thing” Lee

Tinfoil hats can’t trump Liberal, left-wing wingnuts.

The Trayvon Martin slaying has brought out a lot of emotionally-blathered charges and denials of racism and stereotyping.  The media is having a field day!  Who cares about the wars, Iran and Israel, and North Korea nuke tests – when you can shout at each other for a local murder which happened a month ago?

The killer, George Zimmerman, whom the police didn’t arrest, said it was self-defense although he didn’t have enough wounds to warrant a hospital visit. The police also let him go without giving him a blood/alcohol test.

Threats on Zimmerman’s life poured in from all over the country and the killer went into hiding. So, to help any other nuts or lynch mob wannabe’s, Spike Lee published his home address.

Good going, Spike!  What do you suggest the angry mob do – burn down the house or kill his family?

Not to be outdone in over-the-top craziness, the Black Panthers put out a $10,000 Bounty for Zimmerman’s capture! Black Panther leader Mikhail Muhammad said “An eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth.” Yay!  Killing in the name of the Lord.

There’s no doubt there’s racism in American.  But these cockroaches are great cheerleaders for generating more.
