The Times Have Changed, And Not

The Times Have Changed, And Not

One of my FB friends had this image posted on their page. This friend is an American. Except for the distinct lack of taste in choice of NFL team to be fanatical about, a damn good guy.

Quite the statement by an American isn’t it? A true Red, White and Blue to the bottom of his heart American.

komrad americaYou can see what I said in the comment field on my friend’s page. The word in Russian is, “Thank you”.

Wasn’t that long ago wishing the Russians or Soviets if you prefer anything good, well a week on the wrong side of the fence at Gunatanamo would have probably been a more palatable option to many Americans.

They’re talking about Syria here.

I’ve read some on the turmoil there. Made a few comments myself. What I’ve gleaned recently and with all the disinformation I don’t know how much I can really believe. What I’m getting, feeling, thinking is that in this conflict to some degree, the U.S. of A is fighting the Russians. and vise versa.

One thing I do know is that to many Americans before the fall, Russia and the USSR were the same thing.

I had actually moved this piece in to the trash. Wouldn’t you know about 5 minutes after I trashed it I saw something that made me retrieve this.

I saw that the Russians buzzed a US Navy Destroyer. This is pure stupid shit!

Stupid Shit 01

This is the mindset and behaviour that has to stop. Both Super Powers know better than this.

Peeing in the other guys soup just cuz. The mentality of a 6 year old on the playground. Someone “screws the pooch” when this thumbing of noses is going on and the world is going to have bigger problems than it already has.

While Russia and the USA are sorting out the mess that didn’t have to happen, those other problems will have an opportunity to grow and flourish.

O’ Canada, Pay Attention

O’ Canada, Pay Attention

What you are seeing is commentary I left on a story of today’s date. The story is something that has been going on since Canada’s election in October.

Controversies that didn’t have to happen are still going on and will go on because of grandstanding (which I consider a seriously stupid action) by our new Prime Minister.

Putting people at odds, what a wonderful way to begin for a new leader.

What I’ve commented ties to this story:
Interim Conservative Leader Ambrose Year End

Our new Minister of Defence to his credit understands and recognizes that if you Bullshit Canadians they will recognize it and call you on it.
Junior, this Canadian is calling you on your Bullshit.

Stupid Shit 02
Because the shit storm Junior unleashed didn’t have to happen. Y’all get that? The shit storm didn’t have to happen The grandstanding dumb ass was showing off and he rightfully deserved the criticism received. That was one of two major gaffs within 24 hours of the polls closing.
 
With his big show off mouth he took merit appointment out of play in favour of gender placement. Me, I don’t care if it is an invisible bunny and a giant seahorse in cabinet if they got there by merit. With what this dumb ass did, he left speculation wide open that there are those in cabinet that do not deserve to be there.
 
The dumb ass knew election was coming and should of had his shadow cabinet in place ready to move in to the respective positions (give or take a few won or lost seats) after the election. All he had to do was say we had the people in place ready to move in to cabinet with a win and we’re putting them there. Done without fanfare and BULL SHIT!
 
Not Junior, he had to show off and I don’t for one second believe his, “because it’s 2015” wasn’t a planned response because he damn well knew he’d get asked about the placements on the gender announcement.
 
The other major gaff was our CF 18’s and that shit storm didn’t have to happen either. The dumb ass had no business saying Canada’s commitment was being withdrawn on election. The Liberals were not government and not privy to all the information. Nor should they have been privy to all information, wait for it, because they were not the government.
 
I’m sure you all are as well informed as can be and read what took place on an ISIS offensive. If you’re not, go read! In a nutshell our CF 18’s played a very important part.
 
You want another major gaff? Telling caucus that if they are told something by Butts and Telford to treat it as if it came from him. Well you know what folks, those advisers are not part of the government. If the Prime Minister has something to tell caucus, then get your ass with caucus and tell them. Check the link on previous advisers. I’m not real comfy with policy making coming from advisers if that is indeed the case.
 

And I Said # 1

And I Said # 1

I have days where I’m just not feeling very well. This is one of those days. I have difficulty getting things to flow and it frustrates me. When I have days like this where everything I write is taking to long and I find myself overly critical of style and the coherence of what I write, those are the days where I’m best able to exercise my intelligent donkey.

Today I got an age slap too. Forty years ago today Springsteen was on the cover of Time and Newsweek. Talk about having your ass thrown in to a retrospective! Said to a friend that when I was 40 I felt like 25 with something odd going on. I also said “CCR, creaky crotchety reprobate”.

Statler and Waldorf

I’m coming in to one of my coffee spots today and I see a woman with a very pinched look on her face go by carrying a broom handle. I’m congratulating myself for not asking her how long it took to get the stick out of her butt.

It’s good to have duality and today I’m both Statler and Waldorf from The Muppets.

Normally my Muppet spirit is Floyd. Now Floyd is very laid back and cool. Statler and Waldorf not so much.

So off I go out poking around and looking at stuff, FB, LinkedIn, my news feeds, etc, and look for things that I can feed to my donkey. Makes me happy and enlightens others.

If your current state of mind is open to the enjoyment of some of what I encountered and my commentary, keeping in mind of course that it is me, carry on. If you’re not open to such, now would be a darn good time to just click off. A euphemism? I’d never do such a thing. Just so you know, the opposite of a euphemism is a dysphemism.

As this is a word site lets begin with the word

Next up is from Bette Middler’s page. In the Spirit of the Divine Miss M’s Sophie Tucker jokes I added an oldie and a goodie without giving them the answer to the joke. The comment just seemed to work better this way. Remember I told you it wasn’t going to be a pretty picture if you continued on.

This showed up on my page from a posting by a friend.
My comment which friend liked is below.

Bed BreakfastAnd I said

I asked, Don’t you mean, “also make breakfast for you in bed”?
and I said, Hey, I do what I can.

Next up is something I saw from Time Magazine.

stupid shit

Here’s a thought. A joint Chinese and American venture. Round up the people doing really stupid shit. The Americans can transport them to that Chinese island where the people doing really stupid shit can be left to doing that stupid shit to each other.

I’m thinking it’ll be a long time venture for both nations that both nations can be proud of together for benefiting all mankind!

Wrapping it up with this. This is a portrait I’m working on of my Guardian Angel.
I know who my Angel is because I took a test. When the piece is done I’ll post it.

You can read about my Angel in, “Random Angel Musings
Be a darn good idea to remember just who is on my side.

G.D.A.S. 14/10/2015 – F Bomb 1st

General Dumb Ass Shit October 14, 2015

The “F Bomb” appropriate use there of.

Cab drivers. Dropping it on the cab drivers that are honking at you because they want a fare. Normally I just ignore them but today my capacitor reached full load and needed discharging.

Standing at the corner minding my own business and the cab honks at me. I’m standing still and not looking up and down the street like I could be looking for something like, oh a cab. If I am looking for a cab I’m going to see him because, hey I’m looking around for something. Beyond that it is rush hour in the core of the city and if a cab is what I’m looking for and I miss one, there will be another one in oh, maybe a minute.

Today when this cab honked at me I turned, looked directly at the driver and mouthed F…….. OFF. My small directional F Bomb that landed solely on the individual it was intended for was obtrusive to no one else. If my giving that cab driver a direction was obtrusive, tough. Hell what I did wasn’t even close to what the cyclist the dumb ass startled yelled at him.

Cabs all have recording equipment and I think this would make a fine law. When a cab honks at you to get your attention, by law, you must turn and at the top of your voice, drop the F Bomb on the cabbie. If an officer of the law catches the exchange he’ll see the cab and know to have the recording checked. Ahhhhh in a perfect world.

Had some stuff going back and forth with another writer whom is also a good friend of mine. I relayed to my friend who lives in the United States that I’d heard about a couple of law suits and passed on what those suits were.

Friend agrees there is to much frivolous litigation. Friend appreciates that friends north of the 49th laugh at this dumb ass shit and doesn’t blame them.

~.~.~.~.~

Man hit in the head by 16 pound pine cone suing for 5 million. I went and read the story and there is to my mind validity were the area not signed. Now had it happened in Yellowstone and not San Francisco, yeah no. What’s the point in communing with nature if someone has hung signs all over? But you know what, trees drop stuff, it aint a surprise.

Woman sues nephew for 127K. I’m thinking it’s a shame she didn’t land on her ass. Might of knocked some sense in to her. I’m guessing for the jury, 20 minutes laughing their asses off and 5 minutes to compose a straight face to go back in to court with.

WTF Linkedin?

WTF Linkedin?

I was going to do something different this morning for hear at SPASM. Had every intention on commenting on a whole different kind of dumb ass. The kind of dumb ass that could walk by this and make disdainful insensitive remarks about something I had observed and wrote in Street Theatre – An Unfortunate.

I was on LINKEDIN this morning putting that story up as a posting. I could have run the piece up from WordPress as an update of my own but wanted the story to reach beyond an update.

I as usual when on the site did some other looking at what some of my connections are up to, read a bit and added a few comments.

There is sidebar that shows individuals you may know/wish to connect with. I saw one on the sidebar and had to go look to see if the short blurb about the person was correct. It was and then some.

I have as some of my connections therapists of different disciplines. As much as I joke about not being allowed to play with Psychiatrists, Psychologists, Psychotherapists and some others because I break them, I’m very happy to have these terrific people as connections.

I did a screen capture of a portion of what the individual says about herself in background.
I added some thoughts of my own to the screen capture.

Juice? I think not!

Juice? I think not!

Coffee spot has “Sparkling Tea Juice” on their menu.

Now

Orange Juice is juice from oranges.
Apple Juice is juice from apples.
Grapefruit Juice is juice from grapefruits.

Therefore

Tea Juice should be juice from teas.

This is not the case,

Coffee Spot needs to stop doing stupid shit.
