Tossing Salt Presents:
A Day Of Dougie
Kyle Rittenhouse, Who’s The Boss & Respect
November 22, 2021
Good morning and welcome to another earth-shattering edition of a Day of Dougie. Yeh, I couldn’t sleep, and I woke up to an anxiety attack from hell, so here I am. Yeah, it’s only three o’clock in the morning so why not go ahead and get up. And that’s what I did. It’s nights like this, I wish I could just go out, get into my truck, and drive. Unfortunately, I can’t do that yet, but as soon as the guys finish my ramp so I can leave the house with relative ease instead of struggling with each step, and as soon as I re-teach myself how to drive, that’ll change. Yeah, I was thinking about it and realized that we only use one foot to drive. For the past 40 years, it’s been the right foot. Now I don’t have a right foot so I’ll just have to improvise and use the left one instead. It’ll take some practice and getting used to, but I’ll get it figured out. Watch and see.
So now, I’m up, already dressed and cleaned up and now I need to find something to write about. I’ll reach into the Magic Bag in just a moment and find myself a topic or two, but before I do that, I want to touch on something that has been on my mind and is currently big in the news.
In the Kyle Rittenhouse trial, it was a white man and three white victims. How in the hell does this make Kyle a racist and make his not-guilty verdict a racist miscarriage of justice? Explain that to me, will you? But anyhow, the jury made the right call and it was self-defense all across the board. And if anyone disagrees, just watch the damn videos. Don’t listen to the media because the media lies big time and has been so full of crap with this situation, it’s not even close to being funny. No, this verdict does not advocate vigilantism but does say that if someone hits you in the head with a skateboard or points a gun at you, you have the right to light their ass up, as it should be. Whatever happens next, I wish Kyle the best of luck and a happy life going forward. And if anyone has a problem with that, two words for you and if you’ve ever watched wrestling in the ’90s, you know exactly what they are.
And now, let’s move on and draw some topics from the Magic Bag. I’m only going to draw out two topics today since I’ve already done my Kyle-rant above and also since I have to get ready for a doctor’s appointment in just a little bit. Well, a doctor’s appointment and a visit to the ABC store to check in and say hello. So the topics are Who’s the Boss and Respect. Yeah, this won’t take long. So, let’s do this.
Who’s The Boss…
Who’s The Boss was a TV series that ran on ABC from 1984 to 1992 starring Tony Danza (from Taxi), Judith Light (from One Life To Live), and Katherine Helmond (from Soap). And there were a couple of kids as well. It was a former baseball player who got injured and ended up as a live-in-housekeeper for a bossy woman and her crazy mother. It was a good show and stayed near the top of the ratings for it’s entire run on ABC until it was moved to Saturday night and put up against The Golden Girls. How’s that work out for them? Not too good.
The whole thing was that Tony and Angela ended up having the hots for each other, but their own reluctance, plus the two bratty kids, played by Danny Pintauro and Alyssa Milano, kept things from progressing too far too soon. It was a good show and there has even been some talk of bringing the show back to TV this season. It wouldn’t be the same though since Helmond died a few years ago, Pintauro hasn’t acted since the original series ended, and Milano has become a psychotic, left-wing, total fruitcake nutjob. But Danza is still the same and Light is still the same so it might be okay. But if Milano is involved, I won’t be watching. Let’s move on.
I don’t have to say a word. I have Aretha to do it for me. Hit it, girlfriend.
And there you go. My thanks for reading. Comments, thoughts, and any questions are welcome and appreciated. Until the next time, take care of yourself and stay safe. Stay away from BLM riots and no looting, okay. I’ll see you at the Christmas parade.
