I hate… tomatoes

Since today is Monday I think it is only fair that I review 10 things I generally hate. Some will be mildly offensive (which is a huge jump for me) and others will be funny but yet a window into my soul…

1. The sound/feeling of cotton cutting. If you think this is nuts then you have no clue what I am talking about. It hurts my teeth. I get the same sensation when yarn is being tied. Since I am not a seamstress I don’t have that happen much, nor am I crafty. I can’t explain it other than I avoid it like I avoid AIDS.

2. Hangovers!! I know everyone hates them but I actually hate them not because of the pain and the constant banging. I don’t hate them because I lose a day to nothingness, and usually this is a day I wanted to be productive. I don’t hate them because it make me fight with my best friend, beer. I hate them because it shows my age. I remember not so long ago when I use to laugh at those who had this foreign sickness. Now, I am that person! It is like with every month I age my hangovers last an extra hour. Before you know it a few drinks with the girls will end up being three days of sickness!

3. Entitlement. I think everyone should earn their own way. If you can’t because of a handicap then fine, your community can help you but if you are not working because you can’t find your dream hours/pay/JOB then GROW THE FUCK UP! It is called being a productive member of society. My opinion is if you want money from the government or as I like to call it “my hard earned money”  then you should be required to take a job working for the man themselves. There are plenty of employment opportunities in the military. What about working for the community food bank, ASPCA or cleaning the parks?? How about working cleaning the local jail, police cars, fire trucks or park bathrooms??? I once ran my own department and I can’t tell you how many people wouldn’t even come in for an interview because they were making more on unemployment… BLAH.

4. Chapstick/ grease stains. I mean seriously who knows how to get that crap out?? I know how to do it if I happen to notice it before I wash and dry it! It just appears out of nowhere! You know we have pretty awesome science but we can’t make a chapstick tube water proof or heat proof!! I know I am not alone on this crap. Lets not even start on how to keep your shirt sleeves clean while cooking….  unless you want to cook like my mom, dry and dull

5. Cell phones. I mean seriously 10 years ago I was functioning fine without a calendar, text messages, facebook and candy crush in my pocket and now I can’t even poop alone! Its not like I am a cell phone addict either I am pretty normal with mine. I am not always on it, I maybe get 1 call a day and 50 texts. I rarely use it as a phone but now for audible books and reading I use it 29/7. I guess that would be expected for someone who started using a purse so I could always have a book on me. Sometimes it scares me how we are all attached to technology. I keep saying I am going to turn off for one day a weekend and I think as I write this and I think of how my phone is nagging me to check it for a text message I didn’t get I really do need to stop this one sided relationship.

6. 24 hour news. As anyone (not like anyone really reads this, I appreciate the one person who keeps reading it) who knows me or has read back I am pretty conservative. All because of fiscal reasons. I don’t give a rats ass who anyone weds and I am extremely pro conservation I just have an issue with anyone telling me the best way to live my life of I have to support people who are unwilling to work. If you told me all my money was going to animal shelters I was be all like “Here take 50% of my pay”. Also, you should probably know I am not a HUGE fan of people. I love my furry friends. Anyways! I think one of the downfalls of American moral is 24 hour news. Let not mention how we have NO non biased news source. I want to scream at my mother because she spends all day watching the news and she is so segregated to the real world and what is going on.  She legitimately thinks this world is ending soon! I just think if you watch too much you start to lose the ability to form your own opinions. She use to read the paper, I wish her and this country would get back to that. All this technology and yet we still let other people think for us. Shame!

7.  Tomatoes! Why is that fruit on EVERYTHING!! Man you can’t even get a salad anymore without them!! They are so gross in their rare form. YUCK… They are slimy and they make you smell if you touch them. The cherry one burrow to the bottom of your salad so you can’t find it till you stabbed it and now you have tomato gew all over your salad. OH and you better read the whole description of your sandwich to know for certain that the slimy prick wont be on it… STOP IT WITH THE TOMATOES

8. Fucking drivers… Ok where I live it is winter and I am convinced that no one lived her last year or the previous 15000 years to know that snow is slick and moist. No one here can drive. If the road is clear then you can drive the speed limit and contrary to belief if it is covered and icy you can NOT drive 20 over. Nope, even if you have a monster truck with 4 wheel drve. What about if it is overcast and dark midday… naw you don’t need your headlights on… It’s cool I really wanted to sideswipe your ass! I mean seriously they let us drive at 16 years old in the country you would think that means we SHOULD have the ability to dive correctly. I am not saying I am a great driver, I am female. At least I am not an idiot!

9. 2 day weekends. It is like a cruel trick. Like here have some time off… No, I take that back come back to work. People hate Mondays because they come too quickly. I really think we all need all Wednesdays off. No more work on hump day!

10. Katy Perry. I am sure she is a swell human being but I really can’t stand her music. No matter what song that woman comes out with I cannot get the catchy non riffs out of my head! I have lost many of days to humming her crappy subpar music. I know this one is  not very kind but seriously I just wish she would have been a one hit wonder hell at this point I just want her to take a few months off. Can she just not put a song out for 6 months?? Maybe even put one out that isn’t on constantly.

Happy Monday all… time for Tuesday

Politician admits to being wrong… NO JOKE

I was on everyone’s favorite social networking site today and read one of my friend’s posts. She is an elected official for a city pretty close to me. Now, she is one of those people who is actually a friend. I have known her prior to her civil service. I am also well acquainted with her family. She actually got into politics for all the right reasons and has stuck to her guns on her beliefs. GOD BLESS HER. She serves her whole community, even those not of her party. I know her and I don’t see eye to eye on politics and our party lines but she has never let that stop her from listening to my input. Proving she is out for the good of all and not just her party.

I have a few problems with politicians besides the corruption issues. One of them is they tend to start serving their selves and forget who got them there. HELLO my number one problem with Obama is he isn’t listening to the American public. Screw what he thinks of republicans or democrats or who gets the blame this week. His approval rating is in the tank because he isn’t listening to the masses. We are his boss not his party. “Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their powers from the consent of the governed.” – Declaration of Independence. We the people empower you not the other way around. Yes, I get they need money to run but elected officials in general take that oath to swear loyalty to the United States and its citizens not the pockets of those who can cut them a check for a million. My friend has never forgotten who she serves. She has an open door and is constantly in and around the community. She stands by her family, friends and is true to her platforms without writing those opposed off. She is aware that she serves her whole community not just a few who agree with her. She grasps the concept that to better the community she has to better the WHOLE community not just the people who agree with her political stance. What there is a politician out there with the ability to see a whole picture? Couldn’t be true?!

Another one of my huge issues which does touch a tad on corruption but not fully. Most politicians stop being human at some point and only live for their title. They start having their title define them and lose who they are. They are supposed to be citizens just like us. They are supposed to be available and understanding. We do have to do some work with it though. We have to tell them that they are needed and what we want to see happen. They are people just like us with things to do. They have a home life and work life. They have dinner that needs to be cooked and kids who need tended to, it is what makes them real. Once they forget what the real world is they stop representing us. My friend’s door is always open BUT at the end of the day she is a Mother of two and a wife first. She does what she can but can’t be everywhere at once. I personally believe she has gone above and beyond to assure her constituents she is there for them. She has never lost sight of whom she is and why she is where she is.

Today someone read her the riot act for not being on their street enough. Really? I would like to know if this member of the community ever picked up the phone and called her. What about shooting her an email asking for a meeting or minute? Writing an old fashion letter explaining the problem at hand and asking for help? How about going to a city council meeting and voicing ones thoughts? I am sure none of this was done. She is not psychic and only has 24 hours in a day like the rest of us. She does her job and our job as voters is to guide them and talk to them. We are just as responsible for our politician as they are responsible for us. We can not just be bumps on a log then whine and complain when they do not do what we expect.

We the people are just as much to blame for government as they are; remember we gave them their jobs. My friend is a great politician and once confronted admitted to her errors. On top of being there for her family, friends and community she can admit to being wrong??? HEY WASHINGON… take note of what this country really needs!

Why he wears a cowboy hat

He has four wheel drive not because it looks cute with his life style but because it is his lifestyle. He uses it to get through the weather when you can’t possible go to work. He needs it to haul his work load. He uses it to haul his fun time away from work. It is his pleasure to aid you in your weekend yard work or haul your play toys when he can but his four wheel drive works as hard he does all week long but he thanks you for noticing how well maintained it is. After all he will own this ‘vehicle’ until your unborn child graduates from high school.

He wears a cowboy hat to guard his neck and face from the sun. Twelve hours outside in the sun is an awful long time and leather only looks good on belts and shoes. He needs his skin for more than cosmetic reasons. He needs his health to maintain his family and house hold so he protects his skin when he can with that cowboy hat you use for show.

Those flannel shirts that keep going in and out of style he wears to protect him self from the elements. He is glad they look stellar on your hard worked bod but he needs them when bailing hay and shoveling shit. Field work shoots a lot at you and it is nice to have a shirt on your back light enough to wear without restraint but tough enough to take what is thrown at it. It keeps him warm on a breezy night or overcastted morning while you lay asleep. He never cares about the color only that it does its job as he does his.

His shirts are ripped because of the manual labor he works at daily. He never would rip a shirt to show the type of man he is. He doesn’t waste but are glad you can. His rips because they are old and worked hard. He wears what is comfortable not what is cool though he is glad you look to what he has help build for what is trendy now. Hard work is noble but then again he has known that since he was young. When sleeves come off it is because they restrain him not because his biceps look better without them. Looking at you he is glad you can afford the 20 dollar tee shirt to just dismantle it.

Those jeans you wear as dress pants he is glad he has his own pair. The nice ones without holes he wears out. To buy a pair with holes is out of the questions. He knows how the holes get in his jeans. Holes are a product of hard work. They are nothing to brag about but something all men should have. His jeans are faded from the sun and the pockets are ripped because a towel usually hangs in the back to keep the sweat from his eyes. Unlike you his wallet stays in his truck because there is no vending machine at his job. Everyday is jeans day because any other fabric is unsafe. Shorts and flip flops are only an accident waiting to happen from a city friend coming to visit never a clothing option.

His classic outfit is finished with those horrible boots; those boots that end up saving him every day. Doesn’t matter the maker all that matters is are they steel toed and are they warm in the winter. He is on his feet 12 hours a day and comes across things that most would never dream of. They are worn till he is forced to buy a new pair. They become comfortable and well worn like an old pair of running shoes. He probably can out run you in his boots. They are his best wing man when push comes to shove. He has worked well with them and they saved him much pain in the year(s) they spend together.

At the end of the day he can throw down with the best of them. His days are long and weekends longer. His idea of fun is not what you feel is fun. Sitting back with a cold one is all he needs. He chooses to hang out with his friends and that is quite enough. Ideally him and his friends will just sit around a fire or small bar and laugh. Sometime he heads out toward the rest of civilization where he has little place. He sees the world differently and can not understand why there is so much hype about so little to do. Why a beer costs so much or why a person has no idea who they really are. He knows who he is and what he does. He knows what he likes and what he doesn’t and more importantly he knows he still has things to do tomorrow, hangover or not. Really, his kind is why there are tailgates and why they are so comfortable.

After the long night out and the longer week of working he has his family. He remembers why there is family. If he is a world away from his family he misses them more than words can say. He watches his nieces and nephews grow, even if from a distances. He loves his siblings, no matter how much they still bicker. If he is married he wakes up to his wife and children, no matter how bad he wants to sleep just 15 minutes longer. He hasn’t seen them much all week and weekend is family time. The work he does all week long doesn’t define him but the time he puts in during his off time with his family and friends defines him as the man he truly is.

He is the man who is or was fighting for your right to speak your mind. He fights/fought for you to tell the world that he deserves to die because he picked his battalion over one civilian armed with a gun to HIS face. He fights/fought for your right to vote for whom ever YOU feel is the best man/woman for the job. He fights/fought for your right to your freedoms. He fight/fought for your right to voice your opinion on health care when he is still battling with PTSD or any other injury and can’t see someone at the VA because you don’t care enough about his rights or his entitlements that he truly fought for. He is the man who stands up for this country not because he should but because he wants to. This is his country and all he wants is his fair shake at life and he will fight for it as much on home soil as he would over seas.

Tonight I was out with friends and witnessed what the crowd turned into after the Kenny Chesney concert and I have to say I was shocked. Ten years ago I wore my boots to a bar with a baseball cap and was mocked relentlessly. I came from a long day in the sun but no one cared because I was not what was cool. Country has become the new trend. I can not express my happiness that people listen to songs about hard work, heartbreak and beer but I don’t like the fact that they now are ‘mocking’ the lifestyle. I know that I sound pretentious. I feel like I am one of those indie kids who shake their heads and say “They will never get the music”. I don’t give a damn if they ‘get’ the music. Give the good ole boys money. I am in. I will say; the good ole boys I know (even the most chauvinistic ones) would have had something to say about how these boys acted. They were grabbing women and being belligerent. It was disturbing on all levels. On top of which they all claimed to be ‘country’. Excuse me buddy you are in suburbia you are about as country as that Chihuahua’s shit is lying over on the tree lawn. Just for your information a country boy thinks the concept of a tree lawn is bull.

Those men from the country are real men where most will be boys at best. In ten years you will look back on this ‘fad’ you bought into and laugh at what you once thought was cool. I will still be proud to be country. I will be country after it was cool!

I am proud of the men who work hard in the fields of this great country. More than that I am proud of my friends and anyone who fight for the flag and the constitution it represents. Please stop mocking them because they are not a mere fad but they are the fabric in which this country was built.

Should Hitler of been killed earlier?

Today I watched a special about Hitler and all the attempts on his life. One of the most over used statements in the show was “If he would have been killed … could have been prevented”. The … could be anything from; millions of deaths to WWII as a whole. I got to thinking WWII was one of the greatest events in human achievements that the world has ever seen. Do not get me wrong the Holocaust was bad and so has every other form of human genocide though out history but with out WWII we would not be as developed as we are today. Do you like watching ESPN or Reality TV? Well, color TV was invented during WWII. How about flying in jets, what about life flight? WWII (helicopter too). We discovered Genetics during WWII. Antibiotics? Streptomycin and Penicillin came around thanks to WWII. I know all of these things would have come about in one way or another but our lives today wouldn’t be the same had it not happened when it did. I am sure we still would have had another world war but what would have happened if it would have been during the cold war when communists had access to nuclear technology? All and all Hitler was a bad man but the war brought us a lot. The Holocaust itself brought genocide to the foreground. We now know how cruel humanity can be.

No one would have wished the 31 dynasties of the Pharaohs’ in Egypt wouldn’t have happened. Religious persecution and murder were all things they were guilty of, but so was the beginning of the age of engineering. We would never have known of the Great Pyramids, Sphinx, or embalming. Let’s not get into the Roman Empire or Chinese Dynasties. I hate to say it but a lot of the horrors of persons willing to take over better us in the long run, at least the ones who successfully can handle the job. I don’t think the wack jobs in the Middle East will be benefiting humanity anytime soon. The great rulers and dictators put them selves first not a religion. Remember once the Pharaohs took the thrown they were the religion they became a god.

Bottom line we can’t regret things that happened in history. We are Americans and hate what happened on 9/11 but look what it taught us; solidarity, pride in country, and importance of security. We can’t take it back but we move forward and learn from it.

Really, would we have been better off never having to experience WWII as we know it?

When does it become racism?

Race is one of the hot topics in the world today. The greatest feat Obama could have overcame was the fact that he had the chance to stand up, speak out and unite this country. I am a documented conservative for all fiscal purposes. I do not think the government has the power of God. God gave me free will and no one but I should control it. I am for less government in all aspects. This post has nothing to do with my political affiliations. I think Obama is a WONDERFUL role model for all children and that has nothing to do with his skin color. He is the commander and chief of a world power, far better than a sports icon. He proves that people in this country can see past skin and most do not even take it into account. With that said…

When is it racism? If someone does not have enough minorities as employees in their company you better believe the ACLU will get involved. Even if it is due the fact that no minority applied that was qualified for the position.  We always hear about the oppressions of the African Americans, Mexicans and now the Muslims. Why do we never hear about the oppressions of the Irish when they immigrated from Ireland due to a potato famine or the constant attacks from a huge terrorist  group called the IRA who not only attacks Ireland but England? Jews through-out the history of man who have been oppressed by almost every group and even sparked their own name for oppression now commonly known as antisemitism. They have been run out of every country they have call home, lets not even start on the Holocust. Italians who were forced out of their country first by over population then by a tyrant named Mussolini, who was a fascist dictator. These three groups were forced into our country and put in sweat shops and have been the target of many stereotypes. None of them complain of their oppression.  What about the Koreans, Japanese, Chinese, Vietnamese? All of them having bats with oppression. Hell, North Koreans have no idea what is going on with the rest of the world because they are so closed off. What about them Jesse Jackson?

What is bring this rant on? The movie “For the Colored Girls”. I am sure it is phenomenal but I find the title very offensive. It is bad enough that there is a whole damn month devoted for americans having rights and being intelligent! You do not hear as much about Women’s history and no one would be here is it wasn’t for a woman. BTW its October. We were oppressed far longer and that was world wide and in EVERY culture. If there was a movie called White Girls Unite or For The White Man you better believe it would be protested and slandered against. Look at the hype that was against American History X and not one person can make it through that movie with out crying for humanity as a whole.

Glen Beck is a raciest for wanting fairness for everyone. Bill O’Riely is one for demanding answers from all parties. Ann Coulter is one for not putting up with any one or any sex. Why are they raciest when Tyler Perry is not nor is Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton? The last two spend a majority of their time fight for things that are ethically wrong. If they are for Civil Liberties where are they for those who lose their jobs because they are not a minority?  What about the single moms who have to work 60 hours a week and their teenagers are left alone with no guidance just to make ends meet?  What about the poor Duke students with a blemish on their records for rape allegations that were just a fabricated story by a young girl? When is it racism?   Is it only political incorrect when it is against someone black, Muslim or Hispanic?

>This week on WGMG: Asinine liberals

>

Wednesdays grind my gears.

I would first like to start by saying from now on Wednesday will be my observation day for me to vent on social issues I see around me. I typically do not like Wednesday and figure this will be something for me to look forward to. If you don’t like what I say or like what I say comment away. If you don’t want to read then don’t. You have something that grinds your gears just post on!

On to this weeks post (also my first post). I know it is Thursday but I would like to vent on this topic BEFORE the election.

Asinine liberals


WARNING: I do not want this blog to become a political free for all!!
I saw a bumper sticker that I believe has crossed the line. It is one that reads “He is not my President” I would like to point out that if you live in this country he IS your president! If you do not like this concept you have options; leave, vote or kill your self. Do not get me wrong in this fine country we have freedom of speech and I truly defend that right. I do not believe any one should be punished for their speech or opinion. We also elect our president in this country and that was set forth by out forefathers in our Constitution. In the Constitution we have many freedoms that most people in this world cannot fathom. We get to choose as Americans who our heads of state are. I do no like Obama but if he gets elected he will be my president and trust me I will vote against him. I have a question to all the liberals who agree with this bumper sticker… Who is your president? Who is the commander and chief of our brave man and women? Are you just living in you imagination? This is a fair, free country and unfortunately everyone does not always get their way. I personally am ecstatic that Al Gore was not president on 9/11. I do not like Bill Clinton and cannot believe that I will have to explain to my children who Monica Lewinsky was/is and why is she only talked about with cigar jokes. Guess what? He was my president too. I cannot wait till all this finical crisis falls on the laps that it truly deserves to lay in.

Pointing finger, name calling, denial, ignorance and worst of all temper tantrums when things do not go your way; shame on you! This is our fine country all in which we coexist helping this fine oiled machine work.I promise you this, the day I come into a plethora of money I promise to leave one way tickets to Iran for all the assholes who do not think they they live under the same laws that the rest of us Americans and they can feel free to go live in a nation that has no freedoms and most of its population has no rights!

Here are the bumper stickers that have just been discussed

*For these bumper stickers feel free to contact your local asinine liberal *
