Why These Olympics Are The Most Important Olympics in American History

Why These Olympics Are The Most Important Olympics Ever For America
by Senator Brett

I love the Olympics. Always have. Always will. When I was a kid I thought that maybe one day I would be in the Olympics as a sprinter, or maybe a soccer player. As a kid I was pretty dumb. And, as an adult, I’m still pretty dumb… but for entirely different reasons.

But, as dumb as I may be, 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

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

The Great Wolf Hunt of 2012!

Well, this is the beginning of a new category for me. Well, let me start over… this is the beginning of me posting entries on activities that I have been doing for years. Yeah, that is actually more accurate.

Last night, while not being able to sleep for the 100,00th time I happened across a posting on my Facebook Feed concerning the hunting of wolves. Now, for those that don’t know… I’m a huge wolf fan. Also, I am huge fan of sarcastic comments. To be honest if I could find a sarcastic wolf I would probably devote my life to finding a way for it to live forever.

Most of the comments for the photo were against the hunting of wolves. However, there were a few people defending the practice. And, while I know that I don’t know everything about the subject, I decided that it was posted on Facebook… so that means that knowledge 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

Thought of the Day – Even Jesus Loves Texting?!

by Senator Brett

Texting while driving is quickly becoming one of the most dangerous things that a person can do on our roads. Some scientific studies show that it is even as dangerous as Continue reading
