In a world full of questions, sometimes you have to struggle to find the answers. Well, I’m trying to change that and for at least ten questions, all straight from my Twitter feed, the answers are right here. It’s Ten Questions and it all begins right now. Let’s do this.

Thoughts on Vice-President Kamala Harris. Is she a role model for young women of color or a bad example?

She’s a mixed message in that she’s gone from ambitious office worker to Attorney General to the United States Senate to Vice-President and is proof that gender doesn’t matter. How she got there, by being the Mistress to a married Mayor of San Francisco, Willie Brown, who appointed her to several jobs in exchange for sexual favors, and then using every dirty trick to lie to the people, then play the political games of the “woe is me” tales and playing the race and gender card to move ahead, isn’t a proper role model or example for anyone. So she’s basically a sleaze, but she’s still the Vice President, Lord help us all. Take that for what it’s worth.

Where were you when you found out the election was stolen?

Sitting right here in my chair by the computer watching the news as the election results rolled in on Election Day evening. And then when five states decided to quit counting votes, five swing states where Trump was ahead, and then in the wee hours of the following morning, millions of votes mysteriously appeared in those same states where the voting had ceased and the volunteers had been sent home leaving only Election officials with no Republican party poll watchers allowed to remain, I knew something was very wrong and messed up. Then it was announced that Joe Biden of all people had more votes than anyone in history? That was when it sank in. The Dems had stolen an election.

When was the last time you sat inside a restaurant to have lunch or dinner?

I don’t even remember. It’s been at least two years, probably longer, but to be honest, I’m not much of a dining in type of guy anyhow. Give me my order to go. I’ve got things to do.

Do you believe everything you see?

I don’t believe what I hear or see unless I can get independent confirmation and there is video proof as well. After all, just because I saw it happen doesn’t mean that it’s not a lie. Truth!

Is the American Dream still alive?

Nope. Unfortunately, he died on June 11, 2015. Rest in Peace, Dusty Rhodes. And so far as the other American Dream, that if you work hard, live right, and never give up, you’ll find success and happiness as part of the greatest country on Earth, that is dead as well. It died on January 20, 2021.

What is the most irritating thing to hear when you’re trying to sleep?

Either a cat licking itself or a certain someone knocking at my bedroom window wanting a favor in the middle of the night. Newsflash. The answer is, “Hell No!”.

Are you gullible?

There was a time that I would have been forced to say yes, but time has taken it’s toll and I’ve seen much, learned much, and my B.S. detector has grown way much over the past few years. So now, the answer would be not unless I choose to pretend to play the game and be that way.

Do you know what a gumshoe is?

Is that when you step on a piece of gum and it sticks to your shoe? Actually, I think it’s a private detective, but to be honest, I’m not sure. Let me look it up. It’s slang for an investigator so I’m right. Hell to the yeah. I’m the man. Whoo-hoo!

Do you believe everything you read?

If it’s on the internet, it has to be true, right? Unless I trust the source or can confirm what I’ve read with at least two other independent sources, I don’t believe shit!

Do you say anything even when you have nothing nice to say at all?

Of course, I do. Don’t you read my stuff? Why say in ten words what can be stretched out into five hundred? That involves a lot of filler, a lot of repeated expressions, and a whole lot of saying absolutely nothing but saying it well. I just pretend I’m a reporter for CNN or MSNBC where they specialize in this and run two networks, but never actually say a damn thing. If they can do it, so can I.

And there you go. My thanks for reading. Any comments, thoughts, or questions that you may have, feel free and drop me a line. Until the next time, stay good and be safe. I’ll see you on the funny pages.

Ubuntu!
