TOTD – Do I Get Good Things Confused With Bad Things?!

It seems I’m having less thoughts these days… hence, the fewer of these random and pointless TOTD’s. But, here’s one for ya… on a gloomy Friday.

Thought of the Day – Do I Get Good Things Confused With Bad Things?!

by Senator Brett

I don’t know if I am correctly understanding the general sentiment of the “awareness” day that we are having today… but, does International Women’s Day mean that I’m supposed to only hit on women from other countries?! I mean, because if that’s what all the hubbub is about… Continue reading

TOTD – The Limping Barely Alive?!

Disclaimer: Dear Hate Mail… it’s been a while… let’s do this!

Thought of the Day – The Limping Barely Alive?!

by Senator Brett

Last night’s season premier of AMC’s The Walking Dead got me to thinking…

When the eventual zombie apocalypse comes… how am I supposed to be able to tell the difference between the mindless violent herd of hellish, brain-thirsty, still-functioning corpses of former human beings and, say… Continue reading

For A Few Dollars At High Noon?!

First of all, this is NOT a political post, at all. So, before anyone goes jumping up and down for thinking this is an attack on their political stance, or anyone’s political stance, stop… take a deep breath… and understand the words you are reading!

Now, on to the big tent show…

For A Few Dollars At High Noon?!

by Senator Brett

Over the last few days much has been made about Clint Eastwood’s wandering, sometimes incoherent, speech at the Republican National Convention. As far as speeches go, it was not a shining moment. It was sad, really. And a lot of people have taken their shots at Clint over this entertainment faux pas.

I, however, will not.

I will direct my attention to the people to whom it should be directed… his publicist and manager. So, here goes… Continue reading

“Sunburnt in December” – The Long Slide

Excerpt from “Sunburnt in December” – The Long Slide
by Senator Brett

We were driving hard, sliding and hugging through the short easy curves of Pacific Highway 1. Sand, sand, sand on one side of us and looming, open-faced rocky cliffs on the other. Forget the brochures, ladies and gentlemen. Forget the television shows and the commercial advertisement make-up. Trust me, the coastline of Southern California can be a scary place, a very scary place indeed, especially if Continue reading

TOTD – History is in the Eye of the Beholder?!

Though of the Day – History is in the Eye of the Beholder?!

by Senator Brett 

For those of you that don’t know… I am a pretty big fan of The History Channel. However, the other day I was watching The History Channel 2 and I kept seeing a trailer for one of their upcoming shows. In the advertisement the narrator says, “No one survived Custer’s Last Stand”… which made me Continue reading

The Last Supper of the Constitution

Disclaimer: I wrote this many moons ago… back when it still mattered to me. I give up now.  Actually, I gave up some time ago.

The Last Supper of the Constitution

by Senator Brett

They’ve been crossing my mind a lot lately, fluttering about as I make my way through the ordinariness of my daily existence: these wandering shapes and crooked lines, these loops and circles, these small words that amount to very little until you place them together row on row. And then they become as large as Life itself. 

“We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.”

And you pretty much know where it goes from Continue reading

TOTD – Starving is an Option?!

Disclaimer: This is, in no way, meant to distract from the real problems of eating disorders. And I truly applaud those who are willing to admit to their struggles in order to help others in similar situations.

But the bastard in me has to add…

Thought of the Day – Starving is an Option?!

by Senator Brett

In an interview with Cosmopolitan magazine for their September issue a star of the television show “Pretty Little Liars” opened up about her recent struggles with an eating disorder. I don’t know about you… but I don’t really trust her. On the other hand… she looked great while talking about it! Continue reading
