TOTD – What I Wish I Meant?

Look, I know that most of the time I probably come across as a cynical bastard. And, I’m okay with that… mostly because I’m a cynical bastard. However, every once in a while I am not. Today’s post is one of those times.

Thought of the Day – What I Wish I Meant?

by Senator Brett

Several nights ago, while spending time with my niece Tessa, I watched the British version of the Japanese animation film “The Secret World of Arriety,” which for those of you that do not know, is based on the classic children’s book “The Borrowers.” The copy that I had included the English subtitles that the Japanese producers of the film included in their DVD set. And, I don’t know about you people, but whenever I watch a film with subtitles I can’t help but read along, no matter how hard I try not to.

In one particular sequence one of the characters says, as they are leaving their home and saying goodbye to someone, “Take care of yourself”… however, the subtitle read, “I hope that you have the best life ever.” And it got me to thinking…

Golden Corral should get a tax break for every person that dies in their restaurant or shortly after eating at the establishment: $5K for anyone that dies waiting in line to get their food… because we all know that waiting causes the heart a great deal of stress, $10K for anyone that dies mid-bite… uh, because chewing is an exercise, $15K for anyone that dies after leaving a Golden Corral Continue reading

Chickens Are Making Us Dumb!

Okay, so this is gonna be one of those posts that makes everyone mad. I’m okay with that. You know what… let’s just get right to it…

Chickens Are Making Everyone Dumb!

by Senator Brett

Okay, this Chick-fil-A thing is getting WAY out of hand! And, not just on one side of the issue… on all sides. Actually, to be honest, the fact that this thing is even risen to the title of “issue” is a sad commentary on the state of our national discourse. So, seriously, everyone just stop for the next few minutes. Take a little bit of your time, read this, and then decide if what you are doing/saying/thinking makes any sense at all.

1. To the mayors that are trying to keep Chick-fil-A out of your cities:

Stop! Just stop… you’re a mayor… a mayor… not Idi Amin! Continue reading
