allow me to explain a bit before you read further. I came home from work and spend 7 hours cleaning for reletaives visiting this weeking. SEVEN HOURS>… AFTER A FULL DAY of work. now, most of you women say “welcome to my life”. or “that is what you get for having kids”. I don’t have kids. So, I got home at 9 am and drank four pots of coffee and cleaned (and watched action movies, of course). So, I was a little fighty and punchy by the time I published this at 3 or 4 am.
also, I have to admit that I see this country getting SO fucked every single day by people voting against their own interest. So, I get set off when I see the GOP explain to 50 million uninsured Americans why they don’t want to need health insurance… and then those fuckstards (and by that I mean every single person in the grianbelt) vote against giving themselves health insurance. Did you know healthcare is the #1 cause of bankruptcy today? So, I admit I got [ushy and fighty and I shouldn’t have. At this point, though, i just say ‘fuck em’. You want govt out of your life? you win. no more seatbelts, no more gun laws to protect your kids, no more copys or fire departments. no more tv. No one pointing nuclear weapons BACK a the middle East. no more fixing bridges or paving roads. No more going to the doctor EVER. You and Ron Paul will all be very happy… for about a week.
you use the govt every walking moment of your life, and they are genuinely there to help you. Yes, we all know it’s expensive and inefficient but we get to that below. I don’t even expect you to thank the govt, or me… just shut the fuck up about it unti you educate yourself. OR… more to Florida. They literally have NO laws, it is quite something.
1. What is the creepiest local legend in your hometown?
Love Canal. I am from Buffalo. We had a small accident with buried toxic waste. Well, that was the plan. Admittedly, we didn’t quote know that toxic waste doesn’t break down in our lives. Well, they knew… but we didn’t it. So… they buried this all of this nasty stuff outside of a Buffalo NY suburb known as ‘Love Canal’ They buried the stuff and put a whole housing community and school on it. Figured ‘no big whup’ and kinda didn’t tell people.
According to Wiki, this was in the early 70’s I MUST stress this timelines. I am from Buffalo, NY. I lived there in there early 70’s. This is not a ‘legend’ or a ‘myth’. the ground caught on fire. Good news, that was 40 years ago. it is STILL a ‘superfund’ site. I was there three years ago. it is still abandoned. Miles of housing and schools just super empty like a twilight zone episode. gone. emptied, and will forever be in lifetimes.
Here is another gem, Remember Erin Brockovich? It was that great Julia Roberts film about a utlitity company killing everyone off with cancer… and then covering it up while everyone died? That shit HAPPENED. That isn’t a movie. They fucking killed everyone and got away with it.Well, they were fined $450,000. That is like asking me not to play a C7 anymore on guitar. I kinda never was going to anyway. Thanks, Toad, for putting that in every songl Major props to the real Erin Brockovich who is still an aggressive environmentalist
Oh, and the company caught killing everyone? They are doing just fine, no surprise
Then, you had British Petroleum fill the gulf with oil for 87 days. Longest spill in HISTORY… of fucking EVER. K? not the biggest spill in recent memory, or in the us. The worst still in EVER. The latest figure are 210 million gallons. Half the size of Oprah’s pool!
But here is what super pissed me off and scared me about that spill. Not that it happened so much. Accident’s happen, and I don’t think anyone had malicious intent (even though it is documented they were warned repeatedly). I am no energy angel. I drive a big ass prick up truck. I admit, I AM the the problem. But, my point about my concern with the BP spill is no one had any idea what to do about it. There was NO plan to stop it or burn it off or turn of the hose. There was nothing anyone on earth could do but watch for four months.
Now we have fracking and climate change concerns. Don’t bevel me those won’t fuck us? Think big business will protect you? This is why I am a Democrat. It is more than just ‘let big business alone, we all win in the end”. Big Business willl murder you in a heartbeat for profit. They always have, and they always will. AND, they will get away with it. They always have, and they always will. If you believe otherwise you are a dumbshit, gun nut, or religious idiot.
Sorry, didn’t mean to get so preachy. It started as a quick reference to Love Canal as quick answer to #1 and I started thinking about the AMAZING history of the rich killing off the poor and getting away with it.
You see, I am not a Democrat because I am jealous of rich people, and I want my hand out. None of us are. We are Democrats because because the rich and powerful have fucked over the world for too long and never been held accountable. Quick last example – wanna know how I vote o ballot initiatives? Easy, the side with the least amount of money. The poor kids went door to door to get that issue on the ballot and it took them years and thousands of dollars and hours. Yet, some super rich company is going to produce this ten million dollar commercial telling you everything is fine and stop being such a pussy? Well, if everything really was fine, why are they spending all that money? Fracking, Corn Syrup, and Monsanto. I am looking in your direction here. If everything really is fine, then get off out dicks and stop spending billions tell us it is.
Do you remember that super expensive commercial where the sun had to prove it made plants? Remember that campaign about drinking blood of your enemies was ok? Hmmm. Maybe because that shit is so obvious they didn’t need an ad campaign.
start here, then here, then here. then here. then here. and this one is just a gem. Spoilert alert… its the gays. historic climate change, worse droughts in history, a govt backrupted by environmental disasters related to climate change? ALL the gays fault… and this isn’t a Fred Phelps story. This is people interviewing Kansas folk as to why they vote their state unto ruin every single election? Gays! Seriously, watch it as long as you can
sorry, I usually keep this lite and fun. But, for too long YOU have ruined America. Proof. YOU. The latest gallup numbers says Congress approval for early 2014 is 13%
yet YOU assholes have re-ected them at a rate of over 90% for every election for the last 30 years. Congress is not the problem. YOU ARE for re-electing them.
same thing with wal mart. everyone bitches about wal mart. wal mart isn’t the problem. They are getting you the best deal they can and maximizing profits in the mean time. That is the job of every business on earth. Sadly, wal mart sacrifices human rights and health care to do so. That isn’t the free market anymore, dumbass. Wal Mart pays so little that 40% of their employees are on govt assistance. YOUR tax dollars pay to keep wal mart employees alive.
my point isn’t anti wal mart at all, it’s you. Don’t blame wal mart for maximizing value. Blame YOURSELF for shopping there. Quit bitching and go to Coscto, who pays a living wage offers health care, and was recently called out by consumer reports as one of America’s best stores. Prices, friendliness, location, viability of employees, and employee loyalty.
see, the problem isn’t ‘they’. It’s not Congress, it’s not Wal Mart, It’s not Fema or Kansas. it is YOU. Take responsibility with your life and dol. Vote out every single person in congress, your party or not. Dont’ shop at wal mart, because I just proved to you that you are not saving DICK there. You saved $.30 on cheese its over Costco, but your paycheck also send $300 a month to the gal who sells who cheese its. Congress is the most fixable of all. In football, the guy who drops the ball EVERY time gets fired. In burger king, that kid who spits in your fries gets fired. Yet, in Congress… they not only don’t get fired. they get promoted. THEN… they vote on their own raises. THEY, they make a law that says most people deserve spit in their burgers.
well, something tells me this will generate some comments, eh?
2. What’s the nicest bathroom you’ve used?
you know, I don’t much care. I am bothered by nice place where well dressed black guys sell you toilet paper. as a white guy, this bothers me a LOT. I don’t want to pay to poo… and I certainty feel weird about paying a black guy for the privileged to poop. WAY too much white guilt for me to process.
but that isn’t my real concern. my biggest concern is businesses who use cheap toilet paper. They ALL do it – including my own company. I know a guy, and we don’t need to use names (but it’s Tyler) who brings his own toilet paper to work. As a consumer, it really bothers me. Would you go to a business that said every time you walked in someone said “hey fatty fuck face” would you? NO. That is how I feel about every single business who uses cheap toilet paper. I can’t think of a single business who does NOT do this. Admittedly, I am a pretty cheap shopper.
3. What are you the “go to” person for?
at work? fraud avoidance and detection. For real like, anything you need to know about trucks or guitars. Go ahead and ask me, PLEASE. No one never does. plus, as you can guess, I am a bit of a politico.
4. What news headline would cause mass hysteria?
fuck it, there is nothing left to disappoint me about America. Louisiana and Oklahoma just voted out Fema support through their Senators. This is VERY pertinent because they are two largest states that require Federal aid for natural disasters. and don’t be too concerned that BOTH those states have seen the most expensive years in history due to extremes of climate change. It’s funny, because neither state believes in climate change. Even better? Guess who DOES believe in Climate Change, and is already making changes? The insurance companies. Because nothing like the disasters we are seeing have happened in the history or the recorded United States. Righties, do you get the irony here? You don’t believe in Climate Change (which still drives me nuts, because Dems have NOTHING to gain by making this up)…. anyhow, you think it’s a myth. You are also dumb enough to trust big business to protect yo. This is why if you are a righty you are a DUMBASS. because… guess what… you may not believe it’s happening, but it is. That is a fact that is doubling your insurance. Are you getting the irony? You don’t trust Dems, just big business. and Big Business is about to start raping your insurance rates for climate change.
get it yet. whether or not you believe in climate change, your big business buddies sure as shit do and you are about to pay for it. PLUS…. remember when you shop at wal mart you are not just sending all your racist money to China… you are paying for Obamacare via medicare because Wal Mart won’t pay enough or allow fulll time employees so they can access healthcare. That is what you get when you save you 75 cents on cheetoes and skoal.
that pic up top, it’s a Firenado. since I know your buddy in El Camino doesn’t believe there is such a thing…. have him drive into it.
5. What should be done to people who don’t wash when leaving the bathroom?
ah jesus, haven’t I complained enough here already?
