I'm mad as hell, and I can't take it anymore!

Greetings to all!

It's been 6 years since I've posted a blog entry and after what I've seen lately, I cannot remain silent anymore.

Full Disclosure:

First and foremost, I did NOT vote for Hillary Clinton in the primary.  I am, and continue to be, a Bernie Sanders fan.   I have done research on many 3rd party candidates and even Donald Trump without much luck. I have been toying around with the idea of leaving the presidential section of my NC state voting sheet blank.  However, after Friday, October 7th 2016's "revelation" about statements Trump made 11 years ago, I can no longer remain silent and can no longer leave the presidential section of my voting sheet blank.

Now, before you go ballistic and waive off the comments as "locker room talk" or "just the way men talk to each other" I want you to know that the previous 2 quotes are actually not what has me upset the most.  Sure his comments are horrific and not becoming of ANY presidential candidate, but it's the reactions to the comments that are what have me scared the most.

I'd like to go on record, as a 42 year old man, to say that this is NOT how all men talk to each other, even in the locker room.  Sure we have made boasts about sexual escapades, or talked about how hot someone is or said things like, "Wow I wouldn't kick her out of bed...except to do her on the floor!" which always gets roars of laughter to those who haven't yet heard it said that way.   However, I have never... and I mean NEVER boasted about, what most would consider, sexual assault.  I'd also like to think that, even if I had star power and plenty of money, that there is no way I would ever say anything anywhere close to what Donald Trump has said about women. Even BEFORE the latest scandal surfaced (with the exception of not minding if a radio host calls his daughter a "piece of a$$," I KNOW I would never say anything like what has come out as of  this past Friday.

It's the reaction, baby!

It's really the reaction from so many Trump supporters that has me so scared.  Even women that are supporting Trump are seen still supporting him, and even more fiercely!  It boggles the mind how this misogynist, objectifying man can have so much support from intelligent women.  Especially since the other main candidate is a woman!  

Is it all Hillary's fault?

While still an interesting question, I do believe so much of the negative feelings towards Hillary could have been avoided had she been more in the face of the media and had press conferences, instead of going 269 days without one!  Also, why not disclose you have pneumonia instead of the first instinct to be a lie?   Is it any wonder that many consider Hillary untrustworthy?  The biggest lie coming, not from Benghazi or the email server CRAP, from a statement she made where she was "ducking to avoid sniper fire" when exiting an airplane in Bosnia. In reality, there was ZERO reason to even lie about it! And there is video to prove to the contrary. There was no sniper fire. She got off that plane with her familiar smile and handshakes.  It did nothing positive for her to lie about these things, except cause her irreparable harm.  So Hillary, if you ever want to know why the public majority thinks you are untrustworthy, just take a look at your comments about sniper fire and deleted emails. Plus, and even more recently, your instinct to lie about having pneumonia! All your lies had no reasoning behind them. Your first instinct was to lie, and isn't that the worst kind of lie?

Survey Says!

So, in conclusion, I have decided to vote for Hillary Clinton in the 2016 election.  I had previously wanted, deep down, to have Donald  Trump win just so the RNC would actually SEE what they had created and have to deal with the consequences.   Nevertheless, being the President of the United States, is too important of a job to leave with small hands.

Haiti & Pat Robertson

I saw this open letter from Satan to Pat Robertson on a website and thought I would share.

Good stuff!


Dear Pat Robertson,

I know that you know that all press is good press, so I appreciate the shout-out. And you make God look like a big mean bully who kicks people when they are down, so I'm all over that action. But when you say that Haiti has made a pact with me, it is totally humiliating. I may be evil incarnate, but I'm no welcher.

The way you put it, making a deal with me leaves folks desperate and impoverished. Sure, in the afterlife, but when I strike bargains with people, they first get something here on earth -- glamour, beauty, talent, wealth, fame, glory, a golden fiddle. Those Haitians have nothing, and I mean nothing. And that was before the earthquake.

Haven't you seen "Crossroads"? Or "Damn Yankees"? If I had a thing going with Haiti, there'd be lots of banks, skyscrapers, SUVs, exclusive night clubs, Botox -- that kind of thing. An 80 percent poverty rate is so not my style. Nothing against it -- I'm just saying: Not how I roll.

You're doing great work, Pat, and I don't want to clip your wings -- just, come on, you're making me look bad. And not the good kind of bad. Keep blaming God. That's working. But leave me out of it, please. Or we may need to renegotiate your own contract.

Best, Satan



Mr. Robertson should remember that it's the POOR (meek) that inherit the earth. That is all.

Universal Healthcare

So, is anyone else tired of the crap argumentative finger pointing in congress?
These are the real questions (they do show my ignorance in this topic):
Does the current healthcare system work?
What are the problems with its current state?
How many people need healthcare that can't afford it?
How many people can afford it but would be better off with something else?
Is the uninsured number being overstated?
What percent of the population is uninsured?
Is healthcare something that should be guaranteed?
Can we require that doctors take the Hippocratic oath to treat everyone to the best of their ability even if they can't expect payment?
Is the insurance industry over/under regulated?
Feel free to answer any relevent questions that I haven't asked, too.
Thank you

Another Republican Caught!

Yet another Republicans' cheating heart has made them weak. While the Democrats are doing everything in their power to NOT come together on health care, the Republicans keep shooting themselves in the foot when it comes to moral values.

With the President's approval ratings slipping, the Republicans continue to prove they cannot be trusted with their own wives, much less the government.

John Ensign (R-Nevada) admitted to an extramarital affair last month, but it has now come to light that he even had his own parents pay the family of his mistress nearly $100,000.

Perhaps the continuous Republican bumbling in the ethics and trustworthy department will allow us to finally get something done about our health care system and begin reducing the effects of global warming.

Hypocrisy here, Hypocrisy there, Hypocrisy everywhere!

Not everyone loves the sound of a beating drum as much as I do. The constant "thump, thump, thump" can be both soothing and exciting depending on context. The sound of the drums I hear lately have been to disagree with anything and everything President Obama does, says or has someone do. While the constant vitriol spewed from the Right may sound like a beating drum to some, it actually convinces others. Should that scare us? Yes it should.

When you have the likes of Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity saying that OTHER PEOPLE are spewing forth hate speech and venomous lies, you know things have gotten bad.

But, even through all of this the Democrats manage to push forward and, for the most part, stay true to their roots. Not only have they done that, but they have continued to keep poll numbers to manageable levels and, once again, continue to let the Republicans shoot themselves in the foot.


Back in the Mark Foley days when you had scandal after scandal with the likes of Ted Haggard, Larry Craig, Bob Allen and Glenn Murphy Jr., you saw the Republican Party falter and lose favor amongst average Americans. This cost them the congress in 2006 and likely had a lot to do with the Obama victory in 2008. You would think that after all of the scandals that broke, you'd have someone over at the RNC send something out to all Republicans saying "CEASE AND DESIST ALL IMMORAL AND/OR SCANDALOUS ACTIVITY." I mean it would have been for the sake of the party, right? Alas, if a memo like that did go out, not everyone got it.
The Dems had themselves a hard time with John Edwards doing the really sh*tty thing he did to his wife, who happens to be a great person. The sense of morality began to lean in the Republicans favor again (how this happened is BEYOND me) and people were actually starting to forget all of the Republican sex scandals of the past (many involving man on man action).
Now enter Mark Sanford and John Ensign.
Will the hypocrisy ever end?
