Unfortunately, (at least for ideologues without a clue), “hope” is only recognized by those who understand the definition of reality…
..and one flaky liberal Congresswoman from California.
Jordan, (Intellect or ideology).
I’ve been reading your posts for more than two years and this is not the first time I’ve left a comment.
Between your graphics and your wit, this website should be off the charts, but you’re not. If you’d like to be off the charts contact me at the address provided.
Hello Jordan, thank you for patronizing my site, for your kind words and for your offer.
With that said; I am well aware of your previous comments and your previous offers to provide me with access to more readers, (cough), for a fee.
I get the same offer from at least 20 other outfits a hundred times a week and although I appreciate your enthusiasm and perseverance, I simply don’t have the funds to remit a fee.
Currently the label on my “desperation” jar reads; …
I am currently the titleholder on a 14-year-old, (soon to be), 15-year-old Chevy Tahoe. The fuel pump on my 2001 Chevy Tahoe was designed by a (brain-dead) engineer who woke up one morning and decided that it would be a good idea to install the fuel pump inside the gas tank!
Question: What the Hell was the idiot thinking?
Possibly because the eggs he had for breakfast that morning came inside a shell, he “thunk it” would be a splendid idea to install one of the most often replaced parts on an automobile inside of a shell?
In my day, it took a 7/16” wrench and five minutes to remove an “expired” fuel pump from the left side of the engine block and another five minutes to put a new one back on, ..and the cost of the pump was more often than not less than $25.
Currently a fuel pump for my fourteen-year-old Chevy Tahoe lists for $521 plus tax, don’t want to forget Uncle Sam.
Of course now instead of a 7/16 open-end wrench to remove two bolts, an individual after disconnecting an electric sensor and whatever “number of bolts” that hold the gas tank under the car, the mechanic gets to pretty much “disassemble” the entire gas tank.
Question: Correct me if I’m wrong, but isn’t progress making something simpler?
A better Question: Why do Homo sapiens, and/or, human beings need automobiles that speak to them?
A still better Question: If what I write has any value to those that read what I write, ..the folks that (read what I write) ..will share what I write with a friend.
Simple may not work as well as complicated, but then simple works just fine for me.
Lacey, (An Entertaining Truth).
A Facebook friend sent me your post address a few weeks ago and I check you out a couple of times a week, with last Monday being one of those days, so I have a question.
Did you make Monday’s post from an email forward that’s been making its way around lately?
Hello Lacey, thank you for visiting my site and thank you for your question…
I did make Monday’s post from (the) email forward you are speaking about, – I received my copy from my friend Kenny in California, where’d you get yours?
My friend Kenny sends me lots of interesting and funny things to feed my appetite for knowledge and jocularity.
Don’t turn into a stranger, Chuck.
Jolie, (An Entertaining Truth).
I began reading your posts in May with your post about racism which I discovered while researching for a social studies class paper.
Your analogy of white people and black people mixing made more sense than anything I’ve ever read from anywhere. In fact, it has totally changed my life.
My parents both vote Democrat, so I was being channeled into their abyss, but no more since I began reading your blog and coming to understand the difference between liberalism and conservatism.
I’ll be graduating from high school next year and going on to college on an academic scholarship which I’ve worked very hard for and I’m very proud of.
Your writing has opened my eyes to a lot of things in life, but the most important is understanding that liberal ideology is based on taking from people that work hard and giving it to people that don’t work at all.
That’s just plain stupid, thank you for sharing. Jolie
Hello Jolie, thank you for patronizing my site and thank you for your narrative. You are now my new favorite person on the planet.
As I have as of today, posted 1,326 offerings to those that amble in cyberspace, I found it “necessary” to research my archives for a refresher course on myself. 🙂
As I rarely read what I write beyond editing what I write to stave off the (typo) worms, I quite enjoyed reviewing what I published on May 26., and of course I still stand by every word.
Racism means absolutely nothing to a newborn child, as a newborn child has yet been taught to hate.
Disparity is “categorically ” a part of the (human) condition, it always has been, and it always will be. Albeit, (in my humble opinion), racism does not “stem” from disparity, it stems from ignorance and greed.
According to Webster: “greed,” n. An excessive desire to acquire or possess more than what one needs or deserves.
Merit did not elect Barack Obama to the Oval Office, he was elected via guilt, fear and racism.
In your narrative my new best friend, you made reference to graduating from high school this coming year and going on to avail yourself of college.
Accordingly, when you venture into the world seeking to find employment, you will have within your resume an account of your education, and/or, your (school transcripts), and they “your school transcripts” will have your name on them.
Something that our current president “didn’t” provide to us, “we the people” that employ him.
Going beyond this trite “inconsideration,” if you were to have Barack Obama as a guest in your home would you consider it respectful or disrespectful if he were to put his feet on your furniture?
Wake-up call: The White House and its amenities (do not) belong to the Obama’s, they belong to the public, and/or, (you and me), we the people.
According to Webster: “dis·re·spect,” (in context) n. Lack of consideration or regard for others.
Albeit, when it comes to the bottom line, what is racism other then disrespect?
Question: How many black people have been raked over the national coals in the media for a comment they made about a white person?
Paula Dean, in simple terms was “done dirty” by the (racism establishment), and/or, Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson and their ilk.
Paula Dean is a true American success story…
Can you truly say the same about either of these two guys?
Ya-all come back soon now Jolie, Chuck.
Daniel, (Outside the Box).
As a teacher with 23 years in a classroom I take exception with your analogy of school being ‘nothing’ more than what someone else did yesterday or the day before.
However, after reading through a number of your posts, I’m convinced that you have done well in educating yourself.
With that said, I can’t help wondering how much more you would be if you had stayed in school?
Hello Daniel, thank you for visiting my site and thank you for your narrative and your opinion…
With that said; within the same vein, and/or, province, I can’t help wondering what you might have contributed to humanity had you left the classroom?
I’ll be 73 years old the 26th. of next month, I’ve spilled a lot of milk in my life, ..how about you?
It is not now, nor has it ever been my purpose to dissuade anyone, man, woman or child from attending (school) or to better themselves by any means within decorum, …
..knowledge is progress, so now all you have to do is decide “whether or not” ..the progress currently being shoved down America’s throat has any value or benefit to the taxpayers?
Postscript, ..and/or in closing; (in my opinion), ..if you’re not a taxpayer, ..you’re not deserving.
According to Webster: “de·serv·ing,” (in context) n. Merit; to be worthy of.
Drop-in again, ..anytime… Chuck.
Richard, (About the Job).
I work for a janitorial service in Colorado that has a contract to clean government offices, so of course I’m of the opinion that people should be paid by the weight and volume of what they physically achieve, not by the period of time they sit on their keister and talk on their phone.
Self-aggrandizing individuals, whether they’re setting on their keister in Washington or in one of our fifty states, “our” overrated and overpaid employees need to be replaced with men and women who have at least enough character to pick our pockets…
…without throwing their spoils in our faces.
The photograph above was not supplied by Richard, ..it was provided by yours truly, as I thought it would be, ..befitting!
America is going to hell in a handbag, ..a Gucci handbag!
Hello Richard, thank you for visiting my site and thank you for your narrative.
It’s also comforting to discover that I’m not the only angry American with a sense of humor.
Drop-in again soon, Chuck.
Annette, (About the Job).
Why didn’t you tell us about Barack Obama before he got elected, life was so much better when I had a job and health insurance.
Hello Annette, thank you for visiting my site and thank you for your narrative.
Straight to your question; “on election day” in 2008, ..I was totally confident that our new commander-in-chief would be John McCain, not simply because John McCain was a white man, but rather because John McCain was a known quantity as opposed to…
..Barack Obama who was an enigma wrapped in a cloak of misinformation and lies.
There simply was (no way) my God given “common sense” would allow me to believe that there were enough (stupid) people in America to elect an unknown quantity to lead this nation.
BUT THERE WE”RE, ..and THEY DID!
It was indeed the result of my not taking into consideration the number of young academics with minds poisoned by the socialist/communist doctrine pervasive in U.S. universities.
There used to be a slogan brandished about by the black community…
“A MIND IS A TERRIBLE THING TO WASTE”
In an effort to solicit funds for the…
“UNITED NEGRO COLLEGE FUND”
An organization founded in 1944 by Frederick D. Patterson, then president of what is now Tuskegee University.
Correct me if I’m wrong, but didn’t Congress pass the Civil Rights Act in 1964, integrating all the schools in America?
So why is there still a United Negro College fund?
Is not being specific to one ethnicity; ..Segregation?
Is it not bigotry and racist?
Of course it is, ..and I “personally” have no problem with that, as I am myself a bigot, ..not just an (ordinary bigot), ..but an extraordinarily proud bigot.
According to Webster: “big·ot,” n. One who is strongly partial to one’s own group, religion, race, or politics and is intolerant of those who differ.
No matter how many times I publish that definition, it never gets old…
Black people, in fact and in reality are no different than white people. Some good some bad, some get up in the morning and go to work and earn a living and others are content to be dependent on someone other than themselves.
Which of course, (isn’t) political, ..its nature.
If it wasn’t, ..there simply (would be no) politics!
But politics are a reality, which of course is why I began my blog, and/or, my “crusade” to inform America and the world at large about the inadequacies of the individual residing in our house in Washington D.C. in 2011 in an effort to make him a one term president…
So now you and the entire world know that (it’s) my fault that Barack Obama is serving a second term.
However, even with all of that resting on my shoulders, ..I’m not going away. 🙂
I enjoy everything you post, however as a comic book guy I enjoy your posts with pictures the most.
Hello Steph, thank you for visiting my post and thank you for your narrative.
One can never say too much about a man of few words.
Angel, (A Long Shot).
I found your blog several months ago while searching for a picture of the space shuttle. At first I checked back about once a week, now it’s the first thing I do every morning.
My husband and I are both avid hunters and shooters, long-range, trap, sporting clays, black powder and cowboy action. Hunting and shooting are a tradition in my family, beginning with my great-grandfather Ethan.
You should write about guns and shooting sometime, since America’s tradition of guns and shooting have been around longer than baseball and baseball isn’t an inalienable right guaranteed by the Constitution.
I also like Judge Jeannie, ..she’s cool.
Hello Angel, thank you for visiting my site and thank you for your narrative and for your suggestion.
My first rifle, (at the age of five), was a Daisy Red Ryder BB gun with a tube magazine that held 700 rounds. 🙂
I began loading my own ammunition in my late teens and I can’t recall purchasing any factory ammunition sense, other than the loads for my .22s…
As for tradition…

God bless the Second Amendment, I’ll be back tomorrow
