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!

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 – Does Your Vote Count? Yes, Yes It Does!

*Disclaimer: I find a great deal of things to be funny, and my sense of humor, I think, covers a broad spectrum. And in that spectrum there lies the sophomoric and the low-brow. I’m sorry, but there are a lot of immature things that make me laugh. So, having said that… I hope this post doesn’t offend anyone. 

I also need your opinion. You cast the vote. Whatever name gets the most votes by the end of the weekend (Sunday night 11:59 p.m., Central Time) will be declared the winner and forever be attached to my life!

Also, I am not responsible if you are offended by the carefully chosen words and/or my mockery of some people. If you are truly offended, I apologize… however, I will add that not only am I sorry that I offended you, but that you also need to not take yourself so seriously and that you should probably smile more. Thank you… come back again! 🙂

As many of you know, I am close to my niece, Tessa. Due to some cooking commitments that I made for my sister’s church picnic I spent last weekend with her and her family, and therefor got a lot of quality time with my niece. After a great weekend it came time for me to leave on Sunday night. My niece goes into her room and comes back and hands me a stuffed creation.

Now, don’t get me wrong… Continue reading
