STARTING OVER IS NOT ALWAYS BAD

Jon LyStarting over doesn’t have to be so bad. Endings are not always painful and sad. Starting over is another way of surviving. Another way of writing a new story. Another chance at a better life. Starting over gives you a choice. A choice to become a better person. A choice to forget the past,…

ALMOST DRANK THE KOOL-AID

Well done, dickhead. Australian proverb. Was my dad’s favourite saying. Might still be. He used it mostly when driving. Like say, if someone cut him off in traffic, or didn’t use their indicator, he’d yell, ‘well done, dickhead,’ out the window. If he could. If they weren’t within range of his booming voice, he’d say it anyway. Because, you know, it had to be said.

Oh yes, it was completely a sarcastic jibe. Not one you’d ever want to be at the end of. Sometimes it was dad’s players at the receiving end of a “well done, dickhead.” Which was when they knew they were doing a shit job.

For the record — I never actually call my dad, Dad. To be honest I don’t refer to him at all. Is probably why am spitefully refusing to use a capital ‘d’. We’re not exactly on speaking terms. Yet mentioning his…

The States that formed the CSA were not as unified as propagandist would have you believe nor were they all pro-slavery and the average Confederate did not take up arms to preserve slavery or even had any dealings with it. Many of the Generals were West Point graduates and members of the United States Army when the Southern states began to secede from the Union.

A common scene outlook on Politics. The article by davekingsbury.co makes the comparison between football and politics in today’s political climate. Basically, he points out that in both, who wins depends on who scores more times, makes the fewest mistakes, has the best defense, home field advantage gets penalized the least. He also decries that our country faces tremendous challenges and we need to change the rules of the game and become one team.

LSU Students Petition to Change Mascot Due to Apparent Racism

OMG! Say it ain’t so Mike #5. LSU’s Bengal Tiger, there have been 5 live Tigers all named Mike, died last year. The Mascot above dresses like Mike who rarely came to the games. When he did he was in an enclosed cage pulled around the field before the game started. He was never forced to enter the cage and only when he wanted. Legend has it that LSU would score a touchdown for every pre-game roar Mike made. I have seen him live several times. The student body voted on a team mascot and it was a tiger, they also voted to call him Mike back when LSU was an A&M Federal Land Grant college. By the way, Union Gen Sherman was the first chancellor! Another example of political correctness. I have three words to describe it: 1.KISS  2.MY  3.ASS  Let me give a shout out ” BULLSHIT ”

I do not support #Blue Lives Matter and #Black Lives Matter. Neither movement has anything to do with the value of human beings life. One is a political covert tactic the other is CYA-cover your ass! There are good cops and then there are bad cops. The good cops are very good. The bad cops are very bad x 10. I am from New Orleans where at one time the entire Police Department was corrupt. They were “Organized Crime” no differently that the days of the Mafia or the Chicago gangs in Al Capone era.  Murder for Hire, Narcotics just to name two of many. It was well known that if you were driving thru Orleans Parish and a police cruiser was behind you with lights on wanting to pull you over keep driving till you were in Jefferson Parish, then pull into a public area. Things are much better now there and in the Country as a whole as far as corruption is concerned. However, brutality is still happening and more than we let ourselves believe. I have seen it myself as well as felt it. Violence for whatever reason is moral cancer on society. #PeaceMarshall

The psychology of a workplace bully

The best way to deal with bullies at work is to group together with your co-workers and expose their behavior, so they lose the power to terrorize. A bullies behavior can be tied to many factors, substance abuse is often overlooked. Bullies are not born, they are made barring mental illness. One element is common in all cases, they continue their terroristic way because they get away with it time and time again. We have become in many ways a society of spectators and dare I say, cowards. We would rather live on our knees for a little security and safety. We witness the weak and helpless being damaged for life and turn away. I paraphrase ” all that is required for evil to prevail is for good men to do nothing,” Shakespeare said that a coward dies a thousand times before his death the valiant taste death but once. The Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King said that if a man lives his entire life and never finds something worth dying for he is not fit to live. There is embedded in any man of character who is the offspring of Americas Greatest Generation an ingrained despite for oppression in all its forms. A moral obligation and historical covenant to say ” advance no further ” I will fight with no chance of victory just to die on my feet rather than bend my knee. Political correctness and the age of the “sensitive” male have given birth to bullies who are not human and are actually pawns of the powerful and rewarded by government. Stand up and man up. Band together if need be. Bullies talk like a bad ass but seldom are when the time comes to be a bad ass. If you hear about it say something. If you see it do something.                                                           #PeaceMarshall

I can remember when all I wanted was to be left alone. I was making more money than Bill Clinton, working out of town chasing storms 80% of the time, cheating death and on a head rush that I could never get enough of. When you place your worth on the 00000’s in your account, sooner or later everybody else does also. Then, the devil wants his cut and the candle meets in the middle. You look around and find that you finally got your wish, you are alone on mars with no way back. Someone else is driving your truck, sleeping in your bed, mowing your grass, screwing your wife and spending money you earned. No, being alone sucks. It is not human. You are now a cave dweller and your roommates are bats that shit on you 24/7.

Obama’s Legacy

I know better than to get into politics. My haters come out of the wood work. They are a nasty bunch. Their views are none of my business. However, the truth is the truth and facts are facts and neither require someone to believe them. The cold hard bottom line is that Pres. Donald Trump is Obama’s Legacy. He created an exact opposite of himself. Dr. Frankenstein had his monster and Obama now has his. Neither men could control what they gave life to. Ms. Clinton was the sacrifice given to be slaughtered. The people Obama ignored feasted on her.

Th3 Platform

It is no secret that I despise the current administration. As a conservative, the Left is the antithesis of everything I stand for. I think it is important to take a look back at who President Obama really is and what his presidency has done TO America, not FOR America. With that in mind, I really want to thank the American people for preventing Hillary Clinton from perpetuating America’s decline. She is far worse of a human being than Obama ever dreamed of, but even still, this man is an awful politician.

First, we need to take a look at Obama’s background. It has been very difficult for me to get a read on who he is as a person, what his intensions are, and his ideological basis. If you just look at the man alone, you do not know what to believe: as with most politicians. That is why…

You are not alone ladies, men have many of the same issues with self-image as you do. Male body image has been an issue with men from day one, or I should say the day there were 2 men and 1 woman. This is written from a gay man’s perspective and echos that of a straight man. It is encoded in our genes. The strong survive and ensure a gene pool that keeps humans from becoming extinct. Females subconsciously evaluate men based on who would produce the best sperm. The better the sperm is, the greater the odds are for pregnancy. You see the donor, you see the seed. You girls will never admit to it and will send me some death rays, but it is the way nature set it up. Protection, pregnancy success and hunter/provider skills, trump character traits hands down when selecting a mate for reproduction. Men compete against other men to be the one that gets to ” Let the dogs out ” I know this to be true on a very personal level that I will let that dog sleep.

Source: Sophistry – definition of sophistry by The Free Dictionary

It is where the word “Sophistication ” is derived from. We all think that to be sophisticated, one is cultured and refined. NOT, the root word Sophistry is defined by Mr. Webster as to make a statement that appears on it’s face to be plausible, reasonable or believable, but lacks any substance (the essential part of substance is evidence). Want-a-be intellectuals and haters hide behind the mask of being ” Sophisticated ”

Many of the stigmas and negative stereotypes people are labeled with are placed on them by the sophisticated. If they can not understand something or know it’s true definition and do not even try to educate themselves so they will understand, they will re-name and re-define it to something they can understand based on their level of moral decay.
