No More Condo!

I took a loss due to the housing market crash, but I have sold my condo! I'm happy to be done with associations!


Free Negative Political Ad

Since those negative political ads seem so popular, I've written a generic one for use by any politician who needs it.

(insert opposition candidate's name) is such a bum! One night, I saw him walking his dog in my yard and (insert opposition candidate's name) took a dump on my lawn! Then his dog didn't even clean it up!

Then I found out from my friend's bookie, that
(insert opposition candidate's name) likes to eat live ponies for lunch!

(insert opposition candidate's name) is just wrong for (insert jurisdiction of office candidates are running for)!

Sea Gulls?

Why are Seagulls in the Cub foods parking lot? The ocean is a thousand miles away! There is no lake in the parking lot! I guess they must be finding food there. They got all excited when I took this picture. I think they thought I had french fries or something.

Unconditional Love

Perhaps never before have I understood Unconditional Love so well as I do now that I'm a father.

How to get on a Freeway

I'm always amazed at how people drive. It seems that most people think that when you get onto a freeway where cars are traveling at 60 or more miles-per-hour, that you should enter the freeway at 30 miles-per-hour--and then drive for half a mile before finally pushing down the gas pedal and jumping to 70 MPH.

Doesn't it make more sense to get onto the freeway at nearly the same speed that traffic is flowing? Then all the other cars don't have to hit their brakes because the car that pulled into the lane is going half the speed of traffic.

The only time that this seems to backfire, is when one of those semi trucks pulling the second trailer comes up when you are trying to merge. You can run out of lane before those two trailers go by.

Book Blog

There are a lot of book blogs. How do you become an authority on books? I guess you just read a lot. Hopefully they will read Lapse of Humanity.

Peace Day & the Religious Rioters

On this "Peace Day," I would like to address the religious rioters in some countries. These would be primarily Muslims who are angry at America for 'disrespecting Islam.'

All around the Twin Cities where I live, I see mosques, Islamic centers and people dressed in clothing I would expect to see in the Mideast. They seem to be everywhere; living among the rest of us.

If someone, in your opinion, has disrespected your religion, that does not give you the right to kill people or kill American people. In fact, if you think you can commit murder because someone said something negative about your religion, there is either something seriously wrong with you, or something wrong with your religion--take your pick.

Personally, I believe in freedom of speech--even if I don't always like what is being said. Furthermore I don't believe that my God cares if some idiot calls 'him' a name. So my advice is to grow up and pretend like you're an adult.

Best Realtor

I've begun my sixth (do you believe it?) real estate transaction with Jeff Budzisz. I highly recommend him.

Child Abuse after 18

If "we" as a society grow our children up to adulthood (or age 18--whichever comes first) and then send them off to fight in a war where they get maimed or killed even though they had nothing to do with the original conflict, is this another form of child abuse?

Big Boy Pants

The cool temperatures have me wearing long pants again. I got almost four months of wearing shorts.

God's Gift

And God swept off the Earth and it was beautiful and clean; so he gave it to Man as a home. And Earth was filled with Plants and Animals and though Man was puny and weak compared to most of them, Man was Intelligent. In fact, Man was the most intelligent of the animals except perhaps for the whales and dolphins—who only had flippers and so could not manipulate their environment the way that Man could.

Using the combination of intelligence and dexterity, Man soon learned to manipulate the environment and subjugate the plants and animals for his own benefit. Man began to become greedy and so Man used, took, killed and even began killing his own kind. Soon Man began to use and throw away large quantities of things that began to pollute the Earth. Man’s greed prevented him from seeing his home as a fragile, interdependent web of life—and so Man continued to pillage the Earth.

Eventually, though Man had conquered many things, he was unable to conquer his own greed. And so, after a good long run on the Earth, Man died in his own filth and was replaced by the plants and animals that were able to survive in spite of Man’s interference.

Thanks BP!

I want to thank British petroleum, also known as BP. You may have seen their commercial on TV about their commitment to the Gulf, where poor policies resulted in an explosion, dead oil platform workers and an environmental disaster.

Now, some ass clown is on TV telling me that the Gulf of Mexico is better than ever, since BP spilled all that oil in it. So thanks BP! Thank you for insulting my intelligence. Thanks for "making the gulf better than ever" by spilling oil into it! Maybe we should spill oil into all of our waterways to make them better!

Also, thanks for telling me how much money you're spending in the gulf to clean it up. Because gas prices are really high and I want to know that the profits that you and the other oil companies are making from hard working people are at least going to a good cause in cleaning up the mess you made. Thanks so much BP, you're the greatest.

Aldi Checkout Girl

Sometimes I like to stop at Aldi to see what kind of deals they have. There is one store that has a particular young woman working the checkout who has a rather interesting look. While I am not normally fond of tattoos and lots of makeup, she has a retro look, reminiscent of the heavily made-up waitresses of years gone by--kind of like Flo from the Progressive Insurance commercials.

The look is not what I would typically think of for a cashier. Perhaps by night she is in an all-girl Punk rock band! At any rate, I think the greatest appeal is that she seems to make it work; and more importantly, she doesn't look like everyone else.

Back To School

I used to get melancholy when school started because for so long I was either going back to school as a student or going back as an employee. Now it doesn't really matter to me because I don't go to school any more. Someday when I retire, this will be the time of year that I leave for vacation.
