Thinking About Stuff…

It has been so freakin’ long since I just sat down and cut loose with a rambling rant about this, that and everything under the sun. I used to do it quite regularly and it felt good. Real good! And since I have a little free time right now before I head out to go to work, what the hell? Let’s just go for it, right? Nothing too major or seious here, but just the topics of the day and a quick thought for each topic. Are you ready? I said, ARE YOU READY? DX makes it look so easy on television. Anyhow…

The whole deal with the kid falling in the gorilla section at the zoo and the zoo officials putting down the gorilla. It’s sad and the gorilla deserved better, but it was the right call and had to be done. The mother of the child needs to be smacked a few times for not keeping proper control of her child, especially when several reports claim that the child had made it very clear that he intended to try and get into the gorilla area. The mother was slacking and is partially at fault for that, but if it comes down to a split second decision about protecting a kid or killing a gorilla, the gorilla will always lose.

Donald Trump is an orange skinned, lying, two faced bully and ego-maniac. It’s sad and crazy that of all the people in our nation, he has managed to bully and spend his way to being just this close to the office of President of the United States. He’s a disaster waiting to happen and it doesn’t speak well of our country that he has so many supporters and fans. But all of that being said, he’s still a better choice than Hillary Clinton.

The bathroom question: If you have a penis, use the men’s room. If you have a vagina, use the women’s room. Or find a bathroom that is single person and then it really doesn’t matter. It really doesn’t matter anyhow because how did people use the public restrooms for the past 200 years? Just keep doing what you’ve been doing. All of this is a political smokescreen to keep us all distracted from the real issues that really matter. While we’re arguing about transgenders, who compose roughly .03% of the population.. or maybe it’s .30%, I can’t remember for sure… but less than 1% of the population, what is Washington doing behind our backs? What new policies and laws are being put in place? What rights are being stripped away from us? They gain more power over us and we are less and less a free people… but at least people will be able to use the public restroom of their choice, right?

And for the musical artists who are “boycotting” NC because of their opposition to the so-called “Bathroom Bill”, the only people you’re hurting are your fans and the people who have absolutely nothing to do with that bill. They’re just the average joes trying to make a living and support their families. Think about that for a bit… losers!

On the local front, our City Council wants to spend between 5 and 7 million dollars on a new City Hall and a new police station. But our county is # 1 in unemployment for the state and we already have the highest property taxes of any county in NC as well. But none of that matters to our local elected officials. Why not? Conccentrate on getting the school dropout rate down, the number of teen pregnancies down, the unemployment rate down and the taxes that we’re forced to pay down first and when all of that is said and done, when Scotland County is thriving again and there are not several dozen empty buildings all up and down Main Street and when businesses are actually encouraged to come to Laurinburg instead of being driven away by the taxs and the “good old boy” network that holds a monopoly on this town…when all of that is said and done, then you can worry about City Hall and the police station. What we have works and is sufficent for our county’s needs. Deal with the real problems first before trying to fix what isn’t broken.

I want two new tattoos. One would be a championship wrestling title belt shaped like the original “big gold belt” of WCW, paying homage to my wrestling column “Tossing Salt – Worldwide News”, which I’ve been writing, off and on, since 2002. The other would be Marvin Martian.

Some people like muscles and firm, chiseled bodies. I like Dad-bods! Just saying.

Thoughts on kids: Kids should have a regular time to go to bed at night, a regular time for meals, a regular time for a nightly bath, do chores, and be taught to listen and do what they’re told, no arguments allowed. Kids need structure and routine in their lives when they’re small or else they won’t have it when they get older and will wind up being unruly, chaotic and brats.

Ringo Starr is the coolest Beatle. Paul is the most talented over all. And neither of them are Alice Cooper. Just saying.

And that’s all for now. I have to get ready for work. Time to sell that liquor and get this town all turnt up. More ramblings and rantings coming soon. Have a nice day!
