What if Lincoln had been a Redneck

Has there ever been a more disparaged, more put upon minority group than that of the lowly Redneck? Let me answer that for you….NO. Never in the piss-poor annals of this great nation has one group been so downtrodden.

Walmart: An American Cancer

Often times, when speaking to people in the real world about Walmart, I liken the spread of this retail giant, to the spread of a Cancer. I tell them that we here in America, and indeed, the world now, are like smokers.

Walmart Logic:Or how you can be fired for doing a good job

Yesterday I had to go back to my Walmart store in order to get more paperwork concerning my medical leave.  This was about as painful as a coon chewing his foot off to escape a steel trap, then returning to the trap to have his next meal.

But enough about me.… Read full post »

Early Morning Mayhem

There is nothing I hate worse than having my beauty sleep disturbed and this morning it was not only disturbed, it was blasted to smithereens, like manners at an award show.

A Blast From the Past

I beg your indulgence today, while I take us on a trip with Prof. Peabody and Sherman in the Way-Back Machine.

In 1965… Read full post »
