Senator Brett’s Forward

by Senator Brett

Let me begin by telling you that I am, in no form or fashion, to be considered any sort of theologian, counselor, good Christian, deep thinker, brilliant mind, or even a decent writer. I am simply 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

Dear God, It’s Me, Senator Brett!

Disclaimer: Wrote this all in one take. No editing, very little proofing. Paige, my editor, said to just go with it and she will edit it later… like somewhere in 2013, or when the earth fades into the sun. So, enjoy…. Oh, and if you want, make a fun game of it… “Find out How Dumb and Fast Mark Types by Counting All the Mistakes and Putting Them in the Comment Section. Also, I hope, HOPE, that this essay starts conversations. Blake Powell, looking at you! EM… my dear… it would be a shame if you weren’t yelling at me, or near me, for some reason. Felina, come on, where’s the Palin in ya?! All of my Mathews family should be making beautiful funny asses out of themselves by now! And, Adrian, my Adrian will be sitting with me protecting me. But, please comment. Please, follow the blog. Please, like the FB page. Please, send chocolate dark chocolate chip cookies to… 🙂

Years ago I attended a small Bible college inDallas,TX. From the very beginning I was not their “typical” student… and it was painfully obvious. However, I did learn some there, and I hope that a few people learned from me as well.

The one thing that happened was that about two weeks into the school year Continue reading

TOTD – Happy Freedom Day, Aliens!

Okay, this might be a little lazy, but the truth is that I am reposting this for a specific reason. There have been only a few times in my life that I have experienced racism. Actually, I can only recall one other incident… and that was from a cop in Florida who insisted that I was a drug dealer, or had drugs, or was on drugs, or was thinking about drugs… and who had pulled me over for no other reason. Couldn’t even give me a ticket for speeding, but kept me there for a little over half an hour waiting for me to confess. (After the search I met my friends at Waffle House, ate a hearty breakfast, then went back to our campsite and got WAY baked… and then had a wonderful day at the beach! :p )

But, on Monday, at the hospital, I saw blatant racism against Hispanics, in general… and it really pissed me off. I will explain it all sometime soon when I share the entire story (which will be hilarious!). Don’t get me wrong… it was not from everyone on the staff… there were/are some great men and women (mostly the women) that were very helpful and that were actually concerned for everyone. But, there were two bad apples (sorry, male nurses) that actually shocked me because I have been so sheltered that I have never really seen, or heard, true racism.

I really would like everyone to watch the video at the end of this TOTD. It sums up EXACTLY how I feel about this issue. I cannot think of a better way to express my thoughts… so I am sharing this… again. All I ask from my friends, and family, and people reading this (who I consider “friends” now) is to be thoughtful… to think… to mull this issue over in your mind… and no matter the outcome of that… at least there has been a willful thought process… and that is all I want.

Oh, and if you enjoyed this, if it made you laugh, or think, or even want to use the restroom… please, follow the blog, sign up for the email, and “like” my Facebook page. When I get to a 1,000 followers and 200 “likes”… they give all my fans a free car of their choice. Honest to God… I would not lie to you about that! (Disclaimer: Senator Brett is like all politicians… therfore… a HUGE liar!)

Thought of the Day – Happy Freedom Day, Aliens!

by Senator Brett

On today, of all days, may we internally remember that while our country is so divided on so many, MANY, social and political issues… if our spirit is good, our minds are clear, our eyes are awake and our books are laid open and used… then we, as one nation, can accomplish so many great things. Happy 4th of July, everyone.

Although, to be fair, Continue reading

TOTD – I Got Your Equal Rights Right Here!

Disclaimer: This is NOT a true statement or news report! I repeat… this is NOT a true statement or news report!!! I peat.. it’s just humorous… and kinda sad that it could have been a true statement and news report.

Thought of the Day – I Got Your Equal Rights Right Here!

by Senator Brett

From the A-Holed News Press

(Madison, Wisconsin) – Wisconsin State Governor, Scott Walker, met with state legislators today to address the opinion that the state might be losing a public relations perception battle over the issue of Equal Rights. He said that he expected his office had aptly handled the situation by issuing the following statement: “Now that ‘Magic Mike’ has been released… we can all agree that true equality of the sexes has taken place. We men have our little discretionary films of T&A… and now women have their movie of biceps and abs. I, personally, find it a great social justice that our entertainment values are on the same playing field.”

However, Continue reading

TOTD – In Entertainment News…

Since it’s Friday and I realize that I’ve been pretty much slacking on the ol’ “Writing needless thoughts out so that my friends, family and random strangers can ignore them like they would if I said them aloud… while they stood right next to me… and I were on my deathbed… I thought, “Hey, why not a couple of TOTD’s”, which was followed by the next natural thought, “Who can I piss off today?”

So, here goes…
