sarah_silverman_emmysI like Sarah Silverman.  Last night at the Emmy’s a TV talking head went through her clutch and yanked out what appeared to be a pen.  Sarah openly admitted it was a vaporizer to smoke pot.  First of all TV talking head has no right to grab someone’s clutch and go through it.  If that’s what you rely upon for entertaining the audience perhaps you need to take your Wen hair back to the library and do some research on guests you may encounter.

If that’s you or I with a vape loaded with weed we go to jail.  Maybe Sarah has a medical marijuana card but the fact she can openly flaunt her vape on the red carpet at the Emmy’s while we spend millions trying to keep this weed from crossing the southern border is hypocrisy at its finest.

I don’t smoke weed.   It is against the law here in Florida and I am looking for a job and I need to respect and honor the law.  I am prescribed Xanax for anxiety and I hate it.  But let’s be honest about the Washington game:  Pharmaceutical companies give big money to the lobbyists…lobbyists control those that get elected or want to get reelected.  I’m not gonna sit here and say I never tried pot; I went to Ohio University and lived in Oklahoma City.  I know what it does and what it feels like but just like my evil blue pill filled with chemicals called Xanax no one on that drug or pot has any business operating a motor vehicle.  The real dilemma here is what is legal in one state is not legal in another and we are supposed to be the United States Of America.  My mother is very wise and I rely on her advice and knowledge and experience more frequently than ever.  I asked her the other day “Have you ever seen it this bad and do you think it can get better?”  Her answer was:  “No and I don’t know.”

Maybe as I get older it’s just natural to care less about how fast Justin Bieber is driving and care more about making a difference.  Many say to live every day like it’s your last but I think we should live every day like it’s our first…..I still believe we, as a group, can fix something that is drastically spinning out of control.

fergusonI like to laugh and write about funny things.  What is happening in Ferguson, MO is not funny and has consumed me for the past week.   I am a news junkie yet I am surprised when I find out how many are not aware of the unrest and racial tension in this town of just over twenty one thousand.

Cliff note version of what happened:  Michael Brown, 18, and friend were walking in the middle of the street.  Police officer tells them to get back on sidewalk.  The story differs from here.  According to police there was a struggle for his sidearm.  According to witnesses Brown ran from officer and was shot in the back.  Autopsy results have since shown the shots entered the front of Mr. Brown but that isn’t going to bring Mr. Brown back or squelch the pain of his family.  Of course the media vultures Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton swarm on the city like vultures looking for meat.   They are not there to help.  They are there for self promotion and basically a can of kerosene introduced to a bonfire.  They say they stand for civil rights but I concur and say they wish for civil unrest.

At the beginning of this unrest Ferguson police brought in TANKS and swat vehicles and shot rubber bullets and tear gas into the crowd of demonstrators including some news crews that were only trying to do their job.  The wise move was then made by the Governor to put the State Highway Patrol in charge of security.   So who is to blame?   As usual I believe truth lies in the middle.  There were characters of ill repute that demonstrated with violence and didn’t really care about the life of Michael Brown that was lost.  I also believe there are a few police officers that view themselves as “soldiers with toys” that have no regard for the law that they were sworn to uphold.  This is an example of the few ruining it for the many.

We all come from different ethnic backgrounds.   We may differ in color.  We may differ in religious beliefs but the one thing we have in common is that we are human beings.  I hope we all soon accept that reality and act in a brotherly way.

777The more I see this story on a Malaysian 777 being shot out of the sky by a missile I say “WTF?”  There is more to this “accident.”  We are not being told the entire truth and I understand if it breaches national security but this wasn’t “one of those things.”  There is a plan here and this is one of the elements.

A prominent AIDS scientist who had saved countless lives was on that plane, could he have been the target?  A quick second thought dismisses that theory because I am sure all of his research has been backed up.  Ukrainian rebels had the black boxes for five days…you’re not gonna find anything of use on those that’s for sure.

For something like this to happen there has to be a major reason.  Are we being sucked into a war with Russia?  Think about it….Iran backs Russia…Syria jumps in for support….now you have a direct land to land connection for assault on Israel.  I don’t think we are that dumb to bite the fish hook with the stink bait.  I do have a theory on the missile attack;  it was a diversion.

Three months ago another Malaysian 777 “disappeared.”  I call bullshit on this one,  it was planned.  I think terrorists built a runway long enough to land the 777 one of the remote island s nearby or in an isolated area.  They sole purpose was to convert the plane from what “looks” like a commercial airliner to one that can carry and release a “dirty bomb.”  Missile attack the diversion needed to move the completed “missing” 777.  The rebels aren’t smart enough to operate equipment to shoot down that 777, Russia had to do and/or assist in this. Converted 777 drops dirty bomb on Israel and “bingo” we must get involved.  I’m sure many of you reading this think I’m nuts….that’s okay been called worse.  I’d go on…but the FBI is at my door.

chicken headI was gonna go to bed but I ran across a story of a voodoo chicken head closing a road here in Florida.  This creates so many questions in my mind I can’t sleep.

Where do you buy this chicken head?  “Just Chickenheads.”  “Everything is a Chickenhead.”  I can’t even imagine what my local butcher would say if I walked in and asked for a full house of chicken heads.

How do you carry this chicken head with you?  Chicken head holster?  In that compartment with a zipper in your purse?  Money clip?  Although I think the chicken head would slip out of the money clip.  Makes for an embarrassing situation at Nordstrom when checking out and the hot blonde behind you, stops, points and says “Is that your chicken head?”

I’m single and live alone.  I have had a crazy life.  I have seen and done many things I don’t recommend.  I can assure you that I have never had a chicken head on my person, in my house or even in my hand.  If someone were to try to hand me one I am confident that I would not pause in my retort; “WTF would I want with that.  It’s a chicken head.”

In this new leaf I have turned over I am trying to see good over the bad, the positive over the negative, etc.  So if chickenheads are your thing have a good time—it could be worse…you could be a beef or fish lover.

clown lebronI’m an idiot.  I have spent the past day listening to sports talk radio in Cleveland and Miami about the Lebron James situation:  which city will he choose to play for?  In the end it really is insignificant based on the fact that Hamas and Israel are bombing the shit out of each other but I am intrigued by the fact that so many people are interested in this and it’s being covered by every single media outlet.

Let’s not forget I am from Cleveland.  I love and miss my hometown.  I have and always will be a fan of all Cleveland sports teams.  LeBron is gonna make nearly $21 million bucks in either city to throw a ball in a basket.  Let’s not forget all the money he’ll make in endorsements.  LeBron is not just a player he is a brand.   So why hold two cities hostage by dragging out your decision?  Simple:  He’s a jackass!

Sociopath, narcissistic, selfish, bratty, punk, jerk, prima-donna…..any of the preceding words would fit but he also is the best basketball player on the planet.  If he returns to Cleveland I will not be cheering for him directly I will be cheering for my team like I do every year.

This country is falling apart, people are out of work, the middle class is disappearing, the Middle East is ready to implode, values and common courtesy towards fellow man are disappearing and I’m concerning myself about basketball player and where he will decide to make his millions.  Like I said….I’m an idiot.
