It’s so great to be alive – Thank goodness for immigration

ItalyEarthquake that rocked Italy made me think

After I read the news about the 6.2 magnitude earthquake that leveled Italy, it started to make me think. At first, I didn’t think that much about what I’m about to tell you. Then, the more I though about it, the more it blew my mind.

Around 1917, all of my grandparents immigrated to the United States from Italy, and from a place that is very close to where the earthquake occurred.  If not for immigration, I’d still be in Italy, not that I would mind it. But when a massive earthquake shakes the country, where I could be living this very day, I darned well do mind it.

It’s great to be alive. Don’t ever take this for granted.

I have to give a thumps up to the Good Old USA !

Is Pope Francis serious about women, or blowing white smoke again?

Will there be Women Deacons in the Catholic Church?

When a leader is approached with a new idea, and is not interested, the most popular brush off is to say, “I’ll consider it.”

I’ll consider climbing Mt. Everest next Monday. Will I really do it? Certainly not! I’m not going to kill myself.

Does this mean that the Catholic Church will ordain women deacons in the near future? Don’t count on it. This argument has been going on for at least 100 years. Pope Francis has done more than his predecessors, by considering it. But this is a far as it will go.

A deacon is one rank below a priest. They can do everything a priest can do, except, say mass and hear confession.

The Catholic Church is holding on to something that should be let go. That is, Tradition. The Pope, Bishops and Cardinals, point blank, don’t want women in the clergy. This argument will continue for the next 100 years and will only result in one thing – Pissing more women off.

Beggars on street corners make more than executives

beggarsSome of the people you see on the freeway ramp during rush hour, holding up the sign, “I will work for food” drive to work in Cadillac’s and Mercedes Benz’s. They park far away from their work area so no one will see them.

One day, a few years ago, I stopped and said to one of them, “I have some work for you if you’re interested. But we have to go now.” He said, “No, I can’t leave now. It’s rush hour.”

There’s good money in begging people for money on a street corner. Some of these guys make from $10 to $20 an hour. That’s $20,000 to $40,000 a year in tax-free income. Some of these guys work overtime. There’s no telling how much they make a year. Some of them are members of Country Clubs. The guys who do this are really good at it. I guess you could say that they’re professionals.

But let’s be realistic. Who wants to be a professional beggar?

Sexual Harassment not right, but often easily provoked

penis-advantageEvery time there is a question of sexual harassment on the job, it’s always the employer whose neck is on the chopping block. In the end, it’s always the boss’s fault. Sometimes, it’s the employee’s fault. What if a Company hires a devious woman or man who tries to use sex to get what he or she wants? Let’s explore the possibilities.

Here is the exact definition of sexual harassment from the Equal Opportunity Employment Commission:

 

sexual-harassment

Requests for Sexual Favors

This is a little vague, don’t you think? How do we know that the employee doesn’t say something to the employer, such as, “If you give me a big raise, I’ll go to bed with you?” We don’t. But the pissed off employee can turn in the boss for sexual harassment if he or she doesn’t get the raise. And as usual, it’s the employee’s neck.

Other verbal or physical conduct of a Sexual Nature

Suppose a man has a sexy boss, and wants special job privileges. If the man turns in the boss for sexual harassment because she denies those special privileges, her goose is cooked, no matter what the situation. How do we know the guy didn’t grab her tits?

Term or condition of the individual’s employment

Suppose an employer is in the modeling business. He wants to hire a model who is hot stuff, and in big demand. This model can easily imply, Hey pal, you need me more than I need you. What’s it worth to you? In this case, the boss could be the target of a set up.

On the other hand, suppose a model is just starting out, and really wants the job to further his or her career. The boss really doesn’t want to take a chance with an unknown. In this case, the model could imply, Hire me, and I’ll do all those good things you like, between the sheets. The boss says, “No dice!”

You get the point? Sometimes it’s not the boss’s fault, but it’s always the boss’s ass.

 

 

Gays, Afro Americans and Freedom of Choice

gays-afro-americansNo there is not a connection between the two. These are two mutually exclusive groups of people. But the way people are handling these two groups are very much the same. There are two wars going on at the same time.

The RACIAL war is ALL WRONG

If you want to deny that there is a racial war going on, you’d better wake up. It’s as real as it has ever been. And the sad part is, IT’S ALL WRONG.

This racial war must stop, and stop immediately. It must stop on both sides. There is one, and only one reason it must stop, and it is a very good reason. The reason has nothing to do with who Afro Americans are. They are people, just like everyone who came from his or her mother’s womb. They put their pants on one leg at a time. This is the reason it must stop.

They were born that way. It was not by choice. You racist ass holes, back off.

The GAY war is NOT RIGHT, but NOT NECESSARILY WRONG

This is a different matter entirely. No one is born gay. Of course, gay activists will tell you some BS sob story, such as, “Well, they can’t help the way they are.”

This is BS. If a guy is gay, it’s because he wants to be. No one twisted his arm. No one held a gun to his head. It’s all a mental thing. Maybe he’s struck out with women, and wants to try something new. Or maybe he is proof of an old saying, If you can’t hold a job, change your line of work.

They were not born that way. It was by choice. You gay haters, also back off.

I tell it like it is, but I’m fair. These people should also not be the target of discrimination, for one reason. If you discriminate against gays, you are trying to take away the greatest privilege we have,

Freedom of Choice

But let’s not get carried away. Allowing them to marry each other is a bit much, don’t you think?

Moonlighting has its moments

moonlighting

To all those moonlighting

Moonlighting is a pretty good way to pass the time, and make extra money at the same time. The problem is, moonlighters sometimes forget where they are.

If you work at McDonalds during the day, and as a dispatch for 911 at night, don’t say to a caller, “Hey Man! You need to try the Chicken Select Tenders. They’re back and better than ever.

The Interview – Sony Hackers bluffing and F O S

the-interviewLast evening, I watched the trailer for The Interview. The movie looks like it is hilarious. I’d like to see it, but not on Christmas day. I’ll be too busy enjoying some delicious food.

Many people share the same sentiments – they want to see the movie for the same reason. But many people fear that it could lead to the beginning of World War III. Let me put your mind at ease right now.

The terrorist group that is allegedly receiving the credit for the threats is North Korea. This eliminates them from the mix right away. No terrorist group will reveal what they are going to do. If so, the proper authorities will be there ready for them, and squash them like a bug.

Tell someone you are going to attack before you do it? – NO WAY! This is not the terrorist style. They like to do it in a sneaky, underhanded way. In other words, terrorists are Chicken Shit.

The first two World Wars were fought by men of courage. This also rules the terrorists out. They have as much will to fight a World War as a bear taking a dump on the toilet.

So, you can put your mind at ease. There will be no terrorist attack, and there will be no World War III. Oh, there may be another terrorist attack some day, and eventually World War III, but it is not going to be about The Interview.

I’ll probably watch the movie eventually, but I prefer to wait until it is released on DVD. I hope the DVD case will not be laced with Anthrax.

James Foley Beheading Video Could Be Fake

Warning – ISIS beheading of American James Foley might contain content that is not suitable for all ages.

First and foremost, I hope the video is a fake. It bothers me to think that someone would brutally murder someone like this in cold blood.

I’ve watched the unedited version several times, and analyzed it. There are a number of things that seem very suspicious. These leads me to believe that this video is a phony.

  • The video looks like it was made on a Hollywood Set. For all we know, it could have been made in Hollywood, but I wouldn’t go that far.
  • The background appears to be a picture.
  • The wind is blowing very strong on Foley’s clothing. But, nothing in the background appears to me moving. The grassy areas, the sand and the clouds appear to be part of a picture.
  • A strong wind seems to be blowing Foley’s clothing . However, the clothing worn by the masked man in black is not blowing as strong. This leads me to believe that a fan may have been facing directly at the prisoner identified as James Foley.
  • If you look closely at the shadows by the two men in the video, it looks as if there could have been a stage light shining on them.
  • When the masked man finished talking, and was about to behead Foley, the video is temporarily stopped as the knife seems to lodge into his neck. If the ISIS terrorist really wanted to shake up the American public and rub it in, every brutal detail would have been shown in the video. This leads to three important questions: Why was the video stopped?Did the execution really take place?; and, Was the masked man in black holding a real knife?
  • The apparent knife the masked man is holding is not much larger than a paring knife. If the ISIS terrorist was about to behead someone, he probably would have used a sword, or a much larger knife.
  • Foley did not make a sound. When Nick Berg was beheaded in May, 2004, he screamed at the top of his lungs as the knife was going into his neck. Also, recall in the Nick Berg video that the entire brutal execution was shown.

If you watch the video again, you can form your own opinion.

Happy Birthday Internet, aka, WORLD WIDE WEB

internetHappy Birthday, Internet. You Are 25 Years Old Today

I want to take this opportunity to wish a very happy birthday to the greatest guy in the area of technology. His name is

Internet

Just think about it. 25 years ago today, certain terminology had a different meaning from what it has today.

  • A guy by the name of Craig and a girl named Angie actually had hand-written lists.
  • The word, ghost, was a noun, and referred to someone coming back from the dead. Now, ghost is a verb, meaning that your ad will not be posted, and you have been double-crossed.
  • A web was something you would find in your house if you didn’t clean it regular.
  • When you heard the terms, http, html, url, and xml, you may have thought they were small colleges that found a way to get into the NCAA Basketball tournament.
  • People thought blog was a temporary ailment, similar to the gout.
  • Spam was only something that could be purchased in a supermarket. It was in a can, and loaded with fat and cholesterol.
  • A bookmark was an IBM card that you placed in a book so you would not lose your place.
  • Social Media was simply hanging around the local Lion’s Club, Rotary Club, etc. Some may have thought of it as a disease.
  • A tag was only something that the law required you to put on your car once a year.
  • Cookie was only a small, crunchy, delicious snack treat.
  • Yahoo meant that you were excited about something.
  • Java was a tune made famous by the legendary trumpet player, Al Hirt.
  • Password was a TV game show hosted by the late, great Allen Ludden.

internet

  • Ping was mostly known for their golf clubs.
  • A server was only someone who brought food to your table.
  • People contacted viruses, not machines.
  • People who did a lot of research had to drive back and forth to the library. Now, the library is all but obsolete.
  • Facebook could have been a number of things. It could have been a book for women on how to apply makeup in different ways. It could also have been a book on how to make hundreds of funny faces.
  • Amazon was only a river in South America.
  • Words like Google, Fark, Twitter and Wiki did not exist. If your were caught saying these words, someone would have thought you were trying to re-invent the English language, and they would have had you put is a straight jacket.
  • CPA was the guy who did your taxes every year. Now, it means Cost Per Action.
  • Internet was associated with fishing. Of course, this may still be true today.

Happy Birthday WORLD WIDE WEB.
