ISIS has a problem and it’s not what you think. They aren’t being sought out and destroyed with extreme prejudice. They aren’t being adulated by the world as some almighty threat that needs intense scrutiny and attention. They’ve been marginalized and given dirty looks. Ladies and Gentlemen, they have an inferiority complex and we gave it to them. They want to be treated like a dangerous world power. They want the respect a recognized state would receive when pulling such villainous shenanigans.  They want war, but they just get a talking to and lots of inaction. I think we should give them the satisfaction of getting what they want. Face it, they’re not going to stop. You know how they are. And all these stern denouncements on TV are just firing them up. I can hear them now. For all intents and purposes, Pinky and the Brain are ISIS:


“How many did we kill, Pinky?”

“reports say about 45 right now, Brain”

“What have the Americans said?”

“Stop doing that”


WWPATBD? An acronym for what would Pinky and the Brain do. The same thing they always do, try again tomorrow. The motivation doesn’t go away and is hardly weakened by world efforts to quash the persistent acts of war waged on the universe. I’m not mistaken, give them space ships and they will attack aliens. They are the frustrated bunch and you’d think we (USA) would be. But there is seemingly nothing they can do that will make us spring into action like the super power we are… or at least used to be. Perhaps one day soon we won’t take their shit anymore. We don’t even hurt them in any way. In fact, we help them by meddling with the power structure of other nations that have in the past helped to check these militant groups and prevented them from spreading like wildfire. They fight on, we move our military further away from them. It’s actual insanity. We have a few choices and the sooner the US figures it out, the better. We either fight them here or we fight them there. We either bounce around the world cleaning up after they inflict mass casualties or we wipe them out, immediately. I’d pick the proactive route.  Currently, we do nothing. You can impose sanctions on an unrecognized state, but they won’t recognize them. They are not a conventional organization so why do we consider conventional methods of dealing with them? It’s wobbly moral ground we stand on, not wanting to attack them for fear of the innocents. What are the people they attack? Guilty of living?  I could go on and on about how we’ve perpetuated their existence and extended their longevity but that would take ages. The problem right now is that we are not giving them the attention they crave and deserve. They need our military’s attention in a bad way and I say we give it to them.


Please Disregard.


The latest and greatest buzz is about the tried and true electoral college and how it no longer fits the needs of this glamorous nation. Well, before the 2016 election that wasn’t the case but this particular election showed us how flawed a system it really is. To some. People are crying for it’s dissolve, in effect insisting that the feelings and beliefs of New Yorkers and Californians far outweigh those of the rest of America. We should be using the popular vote to elect our president, right? How do we quiet this babble. How can people be convinced that the system created by our founding fathers is a necessary one? It’s tough because they are box thinkers. Might have to show them. Kind of like how they’d love to filibuster Trump’s cabinet and judicial nominees but they can’t because at one time it was favorable for them to restrict that power. Now the rules need a vote to be changed, a vote they can’t win because the democrats do not and can not control anything at the moment…most especially, themselves. When the law is weakened, people suffer. When rules change, it’s hard to change them back. People love it when the non-application of the law or constitution benefits them, but they will be the first to point at the rulebook and hold up the constitution when they feel wronged.  So get rid of the electoral college, let’s pretend it’s gone. Now what? Now let’s switch the numbers around. GOP registered voters skyrockets (which I think will happen in real life)… When the left loses ONE election by the popular vote they will call for the re-establishment of the electoral college. They will all of the sudden be constitutionalists. It’s mercenary politics that they play and it’s by that game that they defeat themselves. I’m not complaining. They can live in a fantasy world if they want to, they simply should not be surprised that we remain unlike them in that we do not dream in crayon.

The Temporary Feeling (Liberal Hysteria)


You’re reading a blog. By the fact alone it’s safe to assume you don’t live under a rock. You know the US presidential election is over and done with and that Donald J. Trump is the president-elect. Cue the outrage from America’s Left who thought they were going to ride the golden unicorn straight back into the White House. Now I don’t know for sure why their knickers are in such a twist, but I have an idea.

“He who is not a républicain at twenty compels one to doubt the generosity of his heart; but he who, after thirty, persists, compels one to doubt the soundness of his mind.”

A rare version of the quote in that it implies a lack of heart in not being a republican in your twenties. In more common versions the rule goes if you aren’t a liberal in your 20’s you have no heart, if you aren’t a conservative by your 30’s you have no brain. Is that terrible to say? The quote has been attributed to so many people that I am not listing any of them. Pertaining, you can give or take a few years on those age guidelines. So why are liberals so dang scared and upset to the point of tears and needing safe spaces filled with marshmallow fluff and chocolate? Even ones my own age and older!?? (36) They haven’t suffered enough political losses in their life up to this point. And they certainly haven’t had social media to supply their emotions with steroids so they can rage like overgrown body building children. Let’s look at someone my age. 8 years of Obama. That brings me back to 28. (I’ve suffered through two elections, recently) 4 years before that I was 24. At 24 years of age, I experienced Bush being re-elected. He was an incumbent, you have to kind of expect him to win. On the other side, you kind of expect to lose, or at least aren’t surprised when you lose to the incumbent, controversy aside. Note: at 24 I did not pay attention to politics nearly as much as I do now, but even then I paid attention more than most my age.  Another note: Facebook was launched in 2004. I was 24. 4 years before that in 2000 would be the last time Democrats were gunning for a sure fire win and lost. (Al Gore, the poor boy) But there was no Facebook, Snapchat, Instagram, Twitter (2006) to fuel an emotional meltdown. AND I was 20 and yet to register as a republican. (Conservative Party Of New York now). That was ages ago, there were no safe spaces. The towers went down on 9/11, the smoke was within eyeshot, and we were quickly back to class and not coddled into a nap-time.

Seeing adults act like children makes adults act like children and there is no better place for that than Facebook. Oh, you are hurt? I’m hurt. You’re crying? So am I. My empathy will not be outdone. It’s a snowball effect. Children and pets get away with murder now because instead of being disciplined for fucking shit up, they are made to go viral on the internet. “This is terrible, but people will like it” Living in NY tears me in two. The land of the left, home of the liberal. Such a kick-ass town but the urban areas are blue to the gills.What I see on social media is vociferous outrage and divisive rhetoric being spewed from liberals to the point that makes me wonder how they are the party of peace, understanding, and acceptance. That’s a farce. All this chatter is galvanizing the GOP. Liberals are angering them into unity. It’s now an emboldened base that has chosen to move forward as a united party despite disagreement, a measured move to quell the multipronged attacks levied by the left. Name-calling, endless insults, holier than thou comments, the pervasiveness of which is so much that it can’t be defended. Is it the bleeding heart talking? Are their emotions so vast that when flared up they can not control themselves? I’ve been a republican/conservative for 15 years and only this year have I been called a racist, a xenophobe, a misogynist, and a homophobe. For people with such big hearts liberals sure are pessimistic. They will not give you half of the chance every person deserves, counting out the entire upcoming administration before it even begins its reign. I gave Obama a few years before I knew for sure that he was taking this country in a direction I didn’t believe in. Never had confidence in him but I at least prayed he would unite people and make progress. I also didn’t bash him in public, he was/is the president of our country, and in my opinion, one of the most purposely divisive characters to ever enter the White House.

So many of my friends are liberal. Thinking with their hearts and politics aside, most of them are good people. I didn’t excoriate them for electing a socialist, but they certainly are not returning the favor of keeping the yammer quiet. But they won’t keep it up. One thing I know about most liberals, they don’t really like or pay attention to politics. Hard news is just too hard for them. I’ve given everyone a pass, I’ve tried to keep friendships intact and I will continue to do so until January. Then, all bets are off. I’ll step up my rhetoric and we can all really have fun. I will stop taking those sensitive liberal feelings into consideration and will move forward as I have in the past. And if Trump doesn’t hold up his end, he will be the first to be criticized as well. Social media is supposed to be fun, like an adult playground… but it’s turned into a war zone. You know us conservatives, we don’t shy away from war. I understand tempers are still hot, but it’s time to get on with things. Democrats have 2018 elections to be thinking about and should be trying to court Jill Stein to the party. They’ve lost focus and the sooner they regain it, the better.


Falling From Nancy Grace

“He’s out on bond, driving through Taco Bell every night, having a Churro…”

What an impotent hussy. As if Nancy Grace wasn’t already perceived as ill-tempered and flappable, she has now decided to hammer home those facts by marrying the Hispanic dude to Taco Bell. This should give her career some real definition. Her baby-bottle outrage should somehow be transformed into a concentrated hormone balancing agent by way of electric shock. People should be enraged by her pettiness and trivial deductions, but I don’t feel confident that it will be the case. People are already making excuses for her when they should really be taking her to task. I don’t understand how what she said is acceptable. If she had said that to me on national television I would have embarrassed her as severely as possible. I’d ask her to repeat the Taco Bell comment just before I ripped off my mic and said that the interview is over. This woman has no objectivity in her pint-sized brain and is no stranger to controversy.  I suppose I really shouldn’t be surprised by her latest charade. Congratulations on being exactly what is wrong with this country. Congratulations on your tainting of public opinion and immeasurable ignorance. Congrats adding a racist spin onto an already racially spun case. And finally… thank you for enabling me to quote you to describe your brilliant critical Taco Bell statement: “I find that, at the very least, a very poor choice of words”


Lack Of Guilt: Still The Killer, G. Zimmerman

Sometimes you just have to be found not guilty because anything less would be uncivilized.


If ever there was a lackluster prosecution, we’ve just witnessed it (again) in The People of the State of Florida vs. George Zimmerman.(State of Florida vs. Casey Marie Anthony, case in point). Another overzealous prosecution team doing their best to double-down on the Florida Justice System’s inexpedience. And I just can’t wait for the next one. The next high-profile, outrage inducing wonderfuck of a circus court case. It’s bound to happen, we’ll all be watching.

I’ll spare us the details. The proliferance of a sensational murder case can’t be contained and unfortunately, the exertion of its influence is not limited to everyone but the DA’s office. The District Attorney’s office is definitely swayed by the magnitude of public outrage. What that means is that they overreached again. They were emboldened by community aggression and used that fuel to charge Zimmerman with murder 2 instead of the far more appropriate manslaughter or accidental homicide. Pan down, they were scared to go for anything else. They are scared of public outrage. Not shockingly, the prosecution has just tabled manslaughter as a charge the jury can consider in their deliberations, and, with an incalculable amount of audacity, they made a bid for felony murder based on CHILD ABUSE. The latter was denied. Queue Herbert Morrison.

Oh the humanity.

They just admitted that they haven’t hammered home the murder 2 case.

Judge Debra Nelson lost the plot yesterday and showed a marked lack of composure and a hot head. Flexing her muscles for no apparent reason at all and coming off unweaned if you ask me. The old gal must know that her time in the national eye is winding down. Give us a show Deb, by any means. If I were a gambling man, I might bet that you have swayed from the middle before closing statements have even been made. You professional, you.

Sorry, Your Honor.

If George Zimmerman does not get time served and walk out into the guaranteed rage parade waiting outside, then the country has been served a great injustice. A porous case by the prosecution substantiated by an imbecilic star witness. If you are in fact innocent of a crime and a case is brought up against you that in any way mirrors the case brought against George Zimmerman, you have to feel confident that justice will be served and that you will be cleared. If you are found guilty of any crime by the will of such shoddy prosecution… all hope is lost for all of mankind.

If you think that I am on Team Zimmerman, I’m not. The evidence against him simply isn’t damning. He shot the kid and he died. He could have kneecapped him or shot him in the shoulder, but he didn’t.  Trayvon got caught out there. He was a young kid that was extremely unlucky, but not by his own saintly accord. When you get up to no good or live life a certain way, you should not be alarmed at the consequences. No matter how severe they may be. Truth be told, had Martin not been skipping through a gated community at night, he would not be dead right now. Had Zimmerman not been carrying a gun and playing superhero, Martin would not be dead right now. But those two things did happen. They happened at the exact same moment in time and at the same exact geographic location. You can’t redeal those cards. Zimmerman is no hardened criminal; you can look at him and tell. He didn’t plan on murdering anyone. But that is how it went down. Without aggression there would have been no drawing of the gun. There was plenty of aggression. If you can’t acknowledge that Zimmerman seems like a dweeb by nature and that Martin was a seemingly aggressive youth, you are letting your emotions run the rule over you. Without emotion this case stands on the wobbliest set of legs that ever remained standing. With emotion, anger and outrage beckons you to make Zimmerman pay the speculative price.

With a clear head and on middle ground, you just can’t convict Zimmerman of murder. If he loses this case, he’ll win on appeal. The most the State of Florida will get out of George Zimmerman is a few years. The least and most likely amount of time seems to be time served. I’m not in the business of being wrong, but I’m also not scared to be. Either way the gavel hits, there are no winners here. Godspeed.

Men’s Wearhouse Guilty Of Testicular Discrimination

Men’s Wearhouse fires founder George Zimmer; no reason given – latimes.com.


I Guarantee It

Oh there’s a reason. My sources have confirmed to me *that* which I have speculated about for years… George Zimmer has 3 testicles. His deep voice and wall rumbling gurble was simply too much man-ness for the Board of Directors over at Men’s Wearhouse to stomach. Each day in his presence was a slap face reminder that they don’t know the true meaning of having bass in your voice. This is outrageous. Remember when Gilbert Gottfried got canned as the voice of the Aflac duck? They’ve never fully recovered. Who will they replace him with? A rudimentary baritone?  Foul Ball! Poor Form!

No Limit Soldiers of Fortune


A friend of mine got me thinking about the U.S. presidency, more specifically the term limits that come coupled with the office. It sounds great if you just take the concept at face value; we don’t want someone to maintain the position of President of the United States for too long so we give them a 2 term limit. Or at least the 22nd Amendment does. So why was the amendment needed in the first place?

Well if you ask me, it wasn’t. We all know that FDR is the only president to serve more than two terms. Only a handful of other presidents have thought to get elected to a third term (Grant, Cleveland, T. Roosevelt, and Wilson). Over the course of 225 years and 44 presidents, it hasn’t posed much of a problem. In fact, could the lifting of term limit restrictions on the office of the president be exactly what the country ordered?

Obama is not the only person I am talking about, he just happens to be in office now and I had never considered the thought prior to a week ago. You run for office on dreams and promises. What you’ve dreamt up for the future of this great country and the promise of actions that will execute your 8 year plan for success. Your first run is incentive based and lined with boundless opportunity. During your second run you still have that glimmer in the eye and a perceived purposeful resolve. Then you get elected to your second term in office and your actions are no longer incentive based. You don’t have to fight for your job or maintain a glowing image because there is no future for you in the high office you hold. It’s only natural for someone to take their foot off the gas, much like a soldier at war that is going home in 2 weeks. Perhaps you drop back a bit. Maybe you don’t throw yourself in the face of danger and instead, opt to standby cloaked in stoicism. Not so bad, but not so fantastic either. You have an agenda and now that there is no fear of botching an election and becoming a proverbial loser, whatever you personally want to do becomes what happens regardless of the best interests of the country. Bipartisan effort doesn’t mean as much, and if you go far left or far right (whichever you may be) you don’t risk losing anything as long as you don’t do something outlandish that will get you impeached.

But what if that wasn’t the case. What if come year 6, you had to consider your public future as president. What if there existed no red line that you cross then no longer have to worry about an election. Do you try harder? Are you more concerned about keeping the middle thinking portion of the country happy? It’s a big portion. Wouldn’t you be more objective and keep your fire fueled with the same intensity and willingness that landed you in office? I am thinking that might be the case. We are not a country that just sits on its ass and does nothing. Well OK we are, but we have the internets and TVs with 500 channels. This enables us to know more and make our own decisions (if we aren’t being blindly swayed by someone else’s opinion) so the chances of a tyrant getting into office and remaining there indefinitely are slim to none. If someone does remain in office for 3 or possibly 4 terms, you have to reckon they deserve it. You simply can’t be mediocre and march on to a third term. As a country we get fed up with anything and everything. There is no real threat of an office dominance that can be likened to dictatorships or a monarchy. It’s virtually impossible. We vote people out of office, it’s what we do. The average age of a US President entering office is 55 and while I don’t disagree with the current age minimum of 35, I wouldn’t be opposed to raising that minimum to 45 years of age. (I originally had my facts mixed up) A decade of decision making and life experience makes a huge difference. This may raise the average age of incoming presidents and lessen the already rare possibility of a 20 year presidency. Again, in the rare instance that it happens, you have to believe that the person deserves it. Right now the American public thinks 4 years is not enough to do anything, which pretty much mandates a second term. 8 years is a good duration of time to gauge results and decide if a person is heading the country in a certain direction.

This could very well be one of the most asinine things I have ever tried to explain, but for me what it boils down to is incentive. Humans react well to incentive; it’s a driving force that can move mountains. When it’s gone we don’t reach further or try harder, quite the opposite actually and it’s not anyone’s fault… it’s just human nature. I’m eager to hear other people’s opinion about this, especially people that disagree 100%.  I am fully aware of the downside and dangers of not having term limits. I think they should exist, just in different areas of congress. That actually leads me to another crackpot theory that we need limits on the terms of congressman and as an alternate process, let them elect the president. We don’t have to work with the president, they do. We restrict Congress’s powers and keep the people happy by increasing the frequency of elections for the senate, and then put some kind of restriction on consecutive terms. You can be a career politician, but not in a row. Keeping Congress on a tighter leash might keep them honest and as a result, make them the most capable of electing a president they are willing to work with and support.

I am going to try and not go on about politics for at least 6 months. Now that I’ve lost your attention, here is your reward:
