Gangway Thursday! Coming Through Nothing to See Here

Haven’t made a Thursday post in while so here we go. Another milestone. Go me. Go you. We’re awesome.

What’s new?

Kate is still pregnant, puking and shitting herself.

Rex Ryan is still an idiot and starting Sanchez against Jacksonville. This will certainly put the final nail into the wildcard playoff coffin chances of the year.

Homeless people in New York really are stupid. You give them shoes in the winter, and they trade them for booze the next day. You tell them to go get a job and they push you in front of a subway. Meanwhile every other fire, police, power company, and other tradesmen from around the country are voluntarily helping with the recovery of Hurricane Sandy in NJ/NY while the bums sit and freeze their asses off doing nothing. Go figure.

Syria is loading aerial bombs with the base components of sarin gas. I hope they use it on each other. Not because I want to see people die in the most gruesome way possible, because trust me, it will be gruesome and it will not be pretty. I want to see it happen because its a permanent and lasting solution to a problem that will take care of everything within hours over there. It will be one less headache for Israel and it will consume the Obama administration for at least a year in bullshit politics of shifting blame, making excuses and hiding truth and fact, that Washington wont have time to ruin the economy further. Well for a bit of time anyway. One can hope. HOPE AND CHANGE YO!

I suppose I should start thinking about Christmas shopping this year. That fact that I am thinking about thinking about the shopping shows I am maturing with age. My goal is do something in the way of Christmas presents before the 23rd. We’ll see how all that pans out. My modus operandi is start my shopping on December 24th. By that time Im so ridiculously late that I can’t even be stressed about it anymore and only laugh as I battle my way through the crowds of other ridiculously late procrastinators out on Christmas Eve doing the same exact thing. We’re a small group, a band of brothers if you will. You know us by the smiles on our faces, walking through the Targets and Best Buys with Starbucks cups full of scotch. We all live knowing that all can be made well with our significant others by the mere and simple stop by the mall jewelry store and the purchase of flashy stones and gold metal that will prove us worthy for another year. Merry Christmas!

Thats it. I need coffee.

Let ‘er rip, tater chip!

Stay calm and carry on.

By now we all the know the answer to the big question. It seems that what I was afraid was going to happen actually happened.

In America you’re not going to win an election for president without support from women, the blacks or hispanics. As polarizing as that statement may be its the cold hard truth. Lets look at the numbers a little more closely.

Obama had 93% of the black vote. Obamas administration and the democratic party cater to this demographic and have essentially enslaved them with government programs such as welfare, food stamps, healthcare, unemployment. When you’re Mitt Romney and trying to ride the Reagan wave of the 80’s with voters you can not alienate this group with silly off hand comments of “47%’ers” not paying their way no matter how true it may be! Being white and trying to convince this core group of voters to vote for you when they have a black candidate who signs the checks is hurdle enough. Yes its a race problem. The majority of the 93% black vote went to Obama because he is black. Its that simple and anyone arguing otherwise is a liar or just plain stupid. Compound that ideology with providing this core group of voters with the government programs the republican party wants to trim and shrink down in the name of personal responsibility and you have an up hill battle. Romney failed miserably with this demographic and so does the republican party.

Obama had 69-70% of the hispanic/latino vote. This I would not directly blame Mitt Romney more then I would blame the republican party itself. Mitt knew this was an issue early in the race and went to the republican party and explained to them the national conversation on the hispanic and latino issue should be integration and legal immigration rather then deportation. The republicans and tea-party old school lives by “send the goddamn illegals back home, fuck em”! Well guess what? Who do you think is coming to this country and actually doing all the work and busting their asses that the 93% of the group mentioned above does NOT do? YEP. Love it or hate it the hispanic and latinos in this country are the ones picking fruit, mowing grass, laying tile, basically doing all the shit work in this country the blacks wont do. When you as the republican party go after this group with threats of deportation (Arizona) you’re not going to win favors or votes with the group. Mitt knew and understands this. The republican party however is stuck in the dark ages on this matter. The solution is not to just deport the illegals, the solution is to get the illegals here that are working, legal and on the fucking TAX ROLLS.

Obama had 55% of married women and 68% of unmarried women. Do we even need to discuss this? Abortion. Look there is nothing wrong with having religious convictions and those convictions shaping who you are and how you conduct yourself. No one is taking that away from anyone. The bottom line however is pretty clear and simple. Shut the fuck up about it, its not your problem. Abortion is a states right issue. It has no place at the national level. Down to the brass tacks? It’s a woman’s right and hers and hers alone issue. The feds have no more right telling a religious organization to provide birth control as the fed has a right saying a woman can not have free access to it. Whether you like it or don’t abortion is a form of birth control. No one cares what your god says about abortion and no one is taking away your belief in what your god tells you to think about abortion. The sooner we all accept this and stop trying to shove our morality or lack of down the throats of the other the better we will all be. Here’s another tip to the republicans. Douche out your fucking head gear. Homosexuals live among us and they are a fact of life. They are going to get married, love each other, adopt and raise kids. Again the fags aren’t shoving their lifestyle down anyones throat and this notion that two queers can get married and it somehow negates your marriage between you and your wife/husband is silly and just plain bullshit. Get used to it. Your marriage to your wife/husband will never be any less sanctified to you and your god just because two dudes or two women want to have the same piece of government paper saying they are married as you and your wife/husband have.

I think Mitt could have been a good President. Obama is still an evil socialist pig. However, Obama didn’t do anything in this election any other democrat would have done. Obama played the cards the republican party dealt him. Until we as the republican party stop handing these elections away to the democrats by simple and stupid mistakes we are going to slide the slippery slope to universal and socialized everything that Obama and his party are greasing the skids to right now.

One of two things is the only way out of this mess we are creating for ourselves.

Outright revolt and revolution. By that I mean we attack and take back everything and re-boot. Taxes, government, term limits for house and senate, two party system, campaign finance etc. We allowed these scumbags to legislate the system into a good old boys/girls club that has NOTHING to do with the people they are claiming to represent. Its about $ and self preservation.

Or

The republican / conservative party really takes a good hard look at itself. This isn’t fucking 1980 anymore. Ronald Reagan was great and awesome, but we don’t need another and the people who voted him in office aren’t here any more. By “here” I mean way the fuck out in the fringe of right wing conservatism. We as a political party are going nowhere until we convince those centralist voters who are heading and gone left in the last two elections to come back this way. You cant just bargain with those people with a promise of a good job any more. Especially when the democrats and socialists are providing proof to them they can take the attitude of “fuck a job, I got a free Obama phone”. Give them work, give them dignity to succeed and be responsible. Do not trade one for another with religious morality, deportation and true deserved welfare necessity.

I can go on about how Obama is a fraud, and an anti-colonial apologist who is hell bent on making America into a 3rd and 4th rate nation. It will be a miracle if we pull out of this next presidential term in tact as a super power able to compete and protect ourselves in the world. There is a lot to worry about and hate with the administration. However, as a republican and conservative there is whole bunch wrong we as a party need to unfuck and clean up internally if we think we are ever going to regain power and restore this nation to true prosperity and greatness.

So in the meantime I am taking the attitude to Stay Calm and Carry On. I’ll protect my money and assets as best as I can. I’ll watch with interest how we as a party stop this polarizing bullshit, and hope we can work things back this way through peaceful means. If not let the revolution begin. I am ready to go to ground, and I wont feel bad at all when we line up all the traitors against the wall.

As the great American poet Mr. Williams Jr. once said

I can skin a buck and run a trout line because a country boy can…..

 

What happened?


Keep your eyes on the road, your hands up on the wheel.

We’er going to the roadhouse we’re going to have a real….good time.


Does anyone else not give a crap about the summer olympics? What was that abortion of an opening ceremony about, and how did it have anything to do with the olympic games and the world wide competition of everything sports? These observations not withstanding, trying to watch the olympics on NBC is as futile an exercise as trying to perform an appendectomy on yourself. Nothing is live on NBC. What’s the point? Ellen and Rachel Ray trump the olympics?

This semi rant kind of brings me to the point of this post. What the hell happened to industry in this country?

In a time when we live with instantaneous access to information at our fingertips how in the hell do corporations not know whom their customers are and what they want? Lets look at some things that have failed or are currently circling the drain.

Newspapers. That whole internet fad, came back to bite them in the ass didn’t it? Who actually buys a newspaper that is below the age of seventy five years old? The writing and reporting in newspapers has always sucked balls with a bias slant this way or that way. The issue was it was ok to have shit writing and reporting where else were you going to go? We were stuck. That is until the internet. Now I can read a newspaper or magazine from any city in the world and if the content writing or reporting sucked I could jump ship to another publication in three clicks of the mouse. This didn’t kill the newspapers, what killed the newspapers is the fundamental lack of foresight and leadership. The newspapers for more then a hundred years only knew how to make money one way. Selling advertising within the publication. When the world wide web came along, non of the management gave a serious thought of how to transition to online advertising or how to effectively make money by selling it.

Same thing is happening with TV. Cable and satellite providers better wake up. Netflix, Amazon, Apple, Hulu and a host of other on-demand content providers are going to free us from the proverbial viagra, and vaginal lube commercials we are all subject to as these companies gain more market share. Who actually watches more then about six channels with any regularity? I don’t. Only problem is in order to watch those six channels, my satellite provider makes me buy into a channel package full of shit channels I’ll never watch.

Want to watch Jon Stewart or Tosh, then you have to pay for a half dozen other MTV “thirteen year old opps I fucked a dirtbag and now I’m a pregnant teen channels.”

Cable and satellite providers know what is happening with on demand content providers and how its going to affect the way they do business. You have any idea what they are doing about it? You guessed it. Nothing. They’re stuck with “the old dinosaur ways of advertising revenue”.

Look at simple retail. Anyone try and buy something electronic from Best Buy in the last two to three years? How was the experience?

Been to a Lowes or a Home Depot and try and get the simplest degree of customer service or ask where a toilet flange bolt is located? Good Luck.

Do I really need to mention Wal-Mart?

We used to produce things in this country. Wether it was durable goods or providing some kind of service. Now not so much.

This country is lazy. That same lazy elected a president that actually had the balls to say something to the effect “that any of the few business left in the country that the founders of those businesses didn’t really create the business”. Of course now our President claims the statement was taken out of context, but after hearing the speech, what earthly context could have been appropriate to make any such statement to citizens of this country during these economic times?

I don’t know what happened to this country. I will say that come election time in November, “Keep your eyes on the road and your hands up on the wheel”. Our current President is not a leader he’s a warden, and Johnny Cash has something for prison wardens.
