Looking for the Dark Side

I am beginning to think that we need to put warning signs on the inside of our doors to warn people that going outside might force them to see/feel something that makes them uncomfortable/triggered or possibly have to deal with unfiltered reality.


What the fuck happened to common sense and reason? When did everything become open to attack for someone

Road Trip

As a celebration of my feeling retired, I took a road trip.

I had a rather informal invitation from one of my stepsons who lives in Virginia and thought it would be a great way to begin a new life style.

I put some things in a 12 foot cargo trailer and headed out for an adventure and had a wonderful time, except for the actual traveling.

That is the thing about travel. The actual travel, getting from point A to point B, sucks. I don


In this day when people seem to want to wait 30+ years to bring up something that you did when you were in high school, I think it might be a bright idea to create a sexual consent form.

This form should be a free phone app and have consent and details spelled out by both parties. (Or all parties if you

I was Wrong

In my last post, (from a long time ago) I expressed hopeful optimism that new direction in the political compass of this wonderful nation was about to occur.

My optimism was somewhat misplaced.

It takes time before the political correctness pendulum swings back and apparently, I did not wait long enough.

Several months ago I was fired from my job after making a politically incorrect joke about a team member who missed a lot of work. Several weeks of work. He missed nearly as much work as he was there for on a project that needed every hand on deck.

I was terminated for

On Manmade Global Warming

Disclaimer; I just kinda shot this off without editing because I am in a bit of a hurry and need to get my ass on the road to investigate a new job. (Another story) Please excuse any errors on my part. I hope to get back and edit this soon.

It seems like everywhere I turn I hear someone blathering about Manmade Global Warming. (MGW)

I find this concept arrogant in the extreme; that man can actually affect the climate to the extent that people seem to feel the need to change the way the entire world does things in order to guarantee the survival of the human race.

This damn planet has done a very good job of taking care of itself for a VERY long time, much longer than mankind has been around. The systems of nature took care of other climate changes that lead to where we are today and we all seem to be doing quite well, thanks for asking.

I have been part of American culture for a while now, and have to come to accept fact that people seem to WANT some kind if disaster to happen, be it the second coming of Ghawd (In all his many guises), natural disaster (California has failed to fall in the Pacific for the past 30 Years), zombies, nuclear war, plague (see zombies), tsunamis, power plant meltdowns, and many other ideas that are not coming to mind. We seem to delight in contemplating death and destruction.

And while all these changes that our government (and other governments) want to make to stop this catastrophe are being implemented, I can

2015: The Year When Everyone Seems Offended


I have been terribly neglectful of this site. Considering that I pay money for this, it seems a waste and a shame.

The reason that I have been neglectful is simple. I am afraid of the PCP. (Politically Correct Police)

Frankly, over the years, (Since 2010) I have become terrified of these bastards. They seem to be lurking all over the media, internet, and even meatspace, seeking out reasons to be offended so they can rant and rave and loudly proclaim their righteous indignation to all who would listen.

These people don’t need badges, uniforms, or even authority. All they need is an opinion and somewhere to spout it in order to ruin careers, lives, relationships, and our future.

These are the people who can tell us everything that is wrong with life in America, but mostly are ignorant of the foundation and fundimentals on which this nation was built. They are so busy pointing out the bad that they can’t see how much hard work and sacrifice it took to get to where we are today. They don’t see themselves as lucky to be alive in this time of relative peace and preosperity, they see themselves as Knights fighting a battle against all wrong.

These people are using their freedom of speech to remove others of theirs. They don’t see the consequences of their actions. They probably don’t care.

I am NOT politically correct. I see politically correct as another way to lie. I like direct talk and direct people. I don’t like this bullshit of hiding behind words or twisting concepts to suit your personal wants. (Except for humor, then I am all in)

Remember: People CHOOSE to be offended.

So here is the bottom line; I refuse to let the PCP keep me from doing something I like to do. I do this for me, not you, or you, or even YOU. If you are offended by what you read here, then please excercise your right to do something else. If you choose to tell me that you are offended, then I shall take whatever action I feel is appropriate.

You all have been warned

Tasteless or Funny

No babies were hurt in the making of this photograph.
No vegetables were hurt.
The roasting pan was uninjured.
The oven was not turned on.
This session was carefully supervised by a protective new mother and her husband.
I took this photo because it I think it is funny.
If you choose to feel offended, feel free to “unfriend” me or whatever it is people do here.
And besides, you never roast a baby with the clothes on. Everyone knows that.


Greetings from Florida

I would apologize for neglecting the site except it is so damned hard to think creatively when you’re working over 55 hours a week. Work, come home, eat, sleep, lather, rinse, repeat.

I have been down here since the middle of October working my butt off on a hospital project. Free time is short and up until this last week I have not had time to do any touristy things.

I have, however, had a lot of fun pointing out to my friends in other places that my nights are in the 50s and my days in the 70s while they complain about freezing temperatures and snow.

While I am very near the “Happiest place on earth”, I cannot say that this is a place where I would want to live. Even in the winter, weather is too warm, the air too wet, and the land is far too flat. Besides that, I don’t think I could tolerate that much happy.

The drivers here scare the living shit outta me. Speed limits appear to be merely suggestions, and not being able to see over the steering wheel of a new Lincoln seems like a bad idea for a driver. Now I understand why there are so many golf carts and golf cart trails here. You won’t get so badly hurt if you have a collision at 12 miles an hour.

This is a nice place to visit but I would not want to live here.
