Truth And The Media

Much of the truth can usually be found in what isn't written.

What Twain Meant To Say

No amount of evidence will ever persuade an ideologue.

Definition Of Consumer Confidence

Unlike what politicians, stock brokers, banksters, and Libertarian economists would like you to believe, consumer confidence is when the working classes are flush with spending money and only have to work one job to get it.

Any other definition is bullshit!

Washed Away

Mountain Men

Mountains loom over the valleys like sentinels over prisoners on guard surrounding them, halting their freedom, their future forever marred. But the wind and the rain are both allies eroding the mountains in time,
'til all is at peace in the valleys and the mountains are lost to the brine.

Libertarians

I don't think I've ever met a real Libertarian. Is that something like one of those horses with a single horn? What do you call those things? Mermaids?

Stupid Money For Stupid Promises

People will willingly pay stupid money for stupid things... especially promises that will never be kept.

It's All In Choosing The Right Weapon

Don Quixote de la Mancha wasn't a fool for thinking he could kill windmills, he simply didn't go about it the right way. A big enough stick in the spokes will bring any windmill to a crashing halt! A tiny sword, not so much.

Slug Head

So why do I call my next door neighbor's cat, Slug Head? Odd name for a cat.

I've never known his real name or if he even had a name so I used to call him, Charlie. He seemed okay with it as long as he was able to steal away some of my cat's food every morning. It has become such a habit that Slug Head as I now call him now spends most nights on my back porch waiting for me to come out and feed my cat, Miss Panther at 6:30 each morning before going home to a second breakfast later. But I digress.

You see, a few weeks ago I went out on my porch at 6:30 and there sat Miss Panther in one chair and Charlie sleeping away in another chair... with a slimy slug crawling across his head. "Good morning, Slug Head," was the first thing that popped out of my mouth. "Are you and Miss Panther ready for breakfast?"

He chowed down his breakfast not even realizing he had a slug on his head while Miss Panther only stared, not knowing quite what to think.

In my mind I picture…

Two Eagles Talking

"You know I was talking to my friend about the
Endangered Species Act just the other day and how it has helped us eagles escape extension but then I found out this morning that some deplorable hunter shot and killed my friend just yesterday just so my friend could become a trophy."

"Somehow it just don't seem right."

"Why just this week deplorables all over the country were up in arms about some Hollywood movie called, The Hunt, in which rich hunters used deplorables for game but in the movie the deplorables fought back and killed the hunters."

"Sadly we Eagles and most other animals on the Endangered Species List can't kill deplorable hunters. What is it with humans?"

"It just doesn't seem fair."

"It's not that I've got anything against hunting. We eagles hunt most every day. But you won't see any trophies on an eagle's nest. We hunt for food. And had my friend gotten eaten by some coyote I'd at least…

Preachers and Politicians

Preachers and politicians have something in common: hiding behind the smokescreen of national issues to avoid local issues.

First Poem I Ever Memorized

Walked into a restroom in a run down truck stop in Florida when I was 10 years old and saw this written on the wall in black ink:

"Here I sit with a broken heart
took 14 pills and my truck won't start"

On the way back north we stopped in the same truck stop again and when I went to the restroom I saw just below in red ink"

"If those pills were worth a fuck
you'd get out and push that truck"

I'm 63 now and still remember like it was yesterday.

Big Bob

I won't name any real names but years ago I worked with a truck driver I'll call Big Bob who was not only a giant of a man but loved to take speed. Thanks to his pill popping Big Bob could run 2 to 3 times as much freight a week as I could.

Early one morning about 2 AM I saw Big Bob's truck and trailer on the side of the road on US 29 just a few miles south of Charlottesville. Knowing I should check on him I stopped and walked back to were Big Bob was standing. "You okay, Bob?"

"Yeah Billy, I'm fine," Bob answered, "but I'm going to kick this stupid mutherfucker's ass."

"Why?" I asked looking around at nothing but a sign indicating a curve ahead. No one there but Big Bob and I.

"Cause this asshole was standing on the side of the road hitchhiking," Bob explained, "so I stopped and all he does is stand there and look at me with that stupid grin on his face."

Knowing I needed to think fast and knowi…
