The contempt being thrown at retail stores — Walmart, specifically — for how lots of people acted crazy on Black Friday a few days ago makes perfect sense.
Clearly, these people — shoppers with free will who voluntarily chose to face large crowds on Thanksgiving Day in order to buy tablets, TVs, a DVD of Family Matters: Season One, or whatever it is tickled their fancy — were innocent victims who had craziness thrust upon them by the evil entity known as Walmart.
Back in 2009, I wrote — not one, but — two articles discussing entitlement and the way society bends over backwards to hand things to people they did not earn.
(I’m still waiting to receive accolades for writing the two articles, though. Just sayin’. After all, am I not entitled as a human to have praise thrust upon me anytime I do anything, no matter how “meh” that thing might be? I DEMAND PRAISE AND I DEMAND IT NOW!)
Halloween is here. Which means it’s time for pumpkins, kids in costumes, trick or treating, candy, and the annual outbreak of what Special Kind of Stupid researchers have dubbed “Halloween Skankitis.”

“Kids, gather around,” a liberal tells his two children after each had bathed for the night, brushed their teeth, and put on their gender-neutral attire so as not to influence the gender role he and she will ultimately embrace.
“It’s time to tell a scary story.”
With all the issues plaguing Obamacare’s new baby, the HealthCare.gov website, the contractors who created it are testifying today in a Congressional hearing. Neither the White House nor the contractors want to accept responsibility for the issues, so there likely will be much finger pointing.
Regardless of who is responsible, there is one indisputable fact: They should hire me to fix the website.
The wife and I watched the movie “Hook” last night. This led me to Tweet the following:
Interesting factoid: Dustin Hoffman was so dedicated to the part of Captain Hook that he chopped off his hand in order to prepare for the role. Not one to be outdone, Robin Williams prepared for the role of Peter Pan by trying on a pair of tights.
Factual? Maybe, maybe not. I mean, who really knows whether or not Robin Williams tried on tights. The Tweet did inspire me to share more movie factoids with you.
To those who haven’t been here in a while (and who can blame you, I went…like…eight months without blogging), the site looks a wee bit different.
The design/layout you knew before is gone. I’m sad to say it was furloughed. Thanks a lot, Obama.
(To those who may be reading this months or even years from now, in October 2013 there was a government shutdown. Many government workers, my brother included, were furloughed. Since the media is blaming the GOP, history books will likely blame the GOP as well. However, you and I know Obama is to blame. Also, Miley Cyrus. Because she’s horrible.)
Anyway, the design you are seeing as of this writing is a child theme based on the free “Twenty Thirteen” WordPress theme. I’ve already tweaked it a bit and will continue to do so until it’s undoubtedly me.
I like how minimal it is. There’s no flash or fluff to get in the way of my content. Which means the success of this site hinges solely on my content…
I should probably consider finding a design with more flash and fluff.
Something in neon perhaps?
The following has been a draft post waiting for me to publish it for literally five years. Discovering it was like discovering a long-lost sock that’s been hiding beneath your bed.
There’s probably a good reason I never published it. Let’s see..
I have been a bad blogger.
Actually, that isn’t entirely true. I’ve been an unfaithful blogger. By that I mean, I have blogged, I just haven’t been blogging here.
After buying a house and getting married, I began to concentrate on my passion and real vocation: Teaching English as a second language.
I received the following email this morning:
There’s a deal in my bank value
(USD36.2mil)If interested reply for details,
Commercial Bank Ltd
Now, I realize most things that sound too good to be true are too good to be true. That’s why I so pleased this is not one of those times!
